Cressida Bonas was one of & # 39; s high-profile models and actresses Dakota Fanning and Zoe Kravitz were in & # 39; a star-studded audience.

The Palais Bulles theater, which overlooked the sea, caused problems when it was added to its original structure. Cardin continued with the project, even though he did not receive planning permission.

He was fined by a court that did not require him to return the site to its original state. The building went on for a break to regulate the situation.

The idea of ​​selling Cardin has been around for a while and he has continually spoken of wanting his global label for € 1 billion (£ 835 million).

He hopes for a similar sum from the sale of his iconic Parisian restaurant Maxim, which is being franchised in major cities around the world. In 2009, he sold his textile companies in China for £ 160 million.

He was the first fashion designer to use his brand to an unusual degree, putting his initials not only on his clothing but on thousands of products, including baking tins and tin sardines.

But in recent years, he stressed: & # 39; I want to sell the hot brand. I know I will not be in a few years and business must continue. & # 39;

Cardin has no children to whom he can leave his fortune, once regretting that no one came from his love affair of four years with the famous French actress Jeanne Moreau.

He was the youngest of six children born to Italian parents. A sister, with whom he lived for long periods, died at the age of 100.
