A journey of Beauty

As she steps on the Montée des Marches at the 76th edition of Festival de Cannes, in a wondrous lilac dress, we started to reminisce our shared moments with beauty queen Iris Mittenaere.

Flashback to our first encounter, back to an evening of December 2016 when Iris was elected Miss France at the Zenith de Lille. Delicate floral embroideries and light tulle transparencies, in hues of creamy beige and sky blue, Tony Ward dressed the twelve finalists of the election that night. Miss France 2015 Camille Cerf and Miss France 2010 Malika Menard were also wearing his designs to pass the torch to beauty queen Iris who started a bright career that night.


This also marked the start of a beautiful friendship. Midnight blue and glimmers of silver, white bustier with geometric sparkles of embroideries, golden leaves embroidered on tulle transparencies, and light blue lace, Iris Mittanere appeared in Tony Ward dresses at Red Carpet events, on the cover of magazines and at the front row of our Fashion Show in Paris. On a magical evening in Manila, in The Philippines islands, Iris was crowned Miss Universe. She was off to a successful career in television, continuing the charity work close to her heart across the globe, and even published her own book about her experience as a beauty queen.

Glints spiraling into a dégradé of beaded sequins, soft criss-cross cutouts, architectural pleats mingle with flowy gentle volume, in a tender lilac color, the beauty queen looked dreamlike last night in a Tony Ward couture gown, at the premiere of ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’, at the Festival de Cannes 2023. The beautiful story between Iris and the house of Tony Ward goes on.
