Will.i.am got Cannes rocking at the Di Grisogono bash at Eden Roc. Invites to this party don't come easy as this is considered to be one of the hottest events at the Cannes Film Festival. This year the star-studded crowd included Goldie Hawn, tennis star Boris Becker and model Karolina Kurkova. SOUNDBITE: Karolina Kurkova, model, saying (English): "I am having a great time, it's amazing, the weather has been beautiful, I mean you are on the beach, you get to dress up glamorous like this every day, you get to go see amazing movies, and you get to meet amazing people, on the beach over lunch." As champagne corks popped, some guests reacted to the pregnancy rumors swirling around French president Nicolos Sarkozy and his wife, Carla Bruni. But supermodel and friend to Bruni, Naomi Campbell, remained tight-lipped. SOUNDBITE: Naomi Campbell, model, saying (English): "I can't discuss anything personal about Carla// she has been a long-time friend of mine for many years." The Cannes Film Festival ends on May 22.
