(CANNES) “I’m still saving up for the boys’ fabulous night!” quipped Dita Von Teese at 2 a.m. on Thursday night, the evening (or morning?) before Dolce & Gabbana’s usual Cannes bash. And Teese meant it--she understood that the guests at the sixth annual affair weren’t expected to sit around and nibble on cheese and crackers. Instead, the dance floor awaited. With the guest list at Le Baoli reduced significantly from last year--and the VIP room completely abolished--there was no escaping the music for those invited by the duo to close out the Festival Friday night. “This has truly become our favorite little party of the year,” smiled an elated Domenico Dolce. “We come here and spend time on Stefano [Gabbana]'s yacht, see friends, and really leave happy and relaxed.”

Carine Roitfeld, son Vladimir and Anna Dello Russo immediately hit the metallic dance floor, with Claudia Schiffer and Eva Herzigova joining them immediately after. "They’re both just fabulous to the core,” announced Gabbana. “You kind of forget about everything in the world when you’re with these two,” boasted Herzigova while dancing with the designers to Lady Gaga and Kanye West. “And you come out looking better, too!”  Natasha Poly agreed. “I’m having so much fun here in Cannes, I already forgot about the stresses of the campaign season,” she said. “That felt like ages ago.”

Aliona Doletskaya, Kerry Washington, Lady Victoria Hervey, Peaches and Pixie Geldof and Alice Dellal partook in the festivities, and Kylie Minogue joined the crowd around 2:30 a.m. “I went from performing in the middle of Morocco to just having a concert in a very sweaty club to joining my friends at this amazing party,” the entertainer exclaimed. “Cannes made my dreams come true!”
