Friday evening, the pop star walked the steps of the Cannes Film Festival alongside the discreet Romain Gavras on the occasion of the screening of Elias Belkeddar’s first film, “Omar La Fraise”, with Reda Kateb and Benoît Magimel. After many rumors and a few appearances, notably at the Yves Saint Laurent parade during Paris Fashion Week, the couple decided to formalize their union under the spotlight of the most media event in the film industry.

After her appearance, the singer posted on her Instagram account: Last night in Cannes with my heart “, accompanied by several photos with his new companion. But on closer inspection, Dua Lipa has already implicitly shared, for a few months, her affair with the director through moments of life or even a few winks like a bottle of white wine with the label “Saint-Romain “.

So who is Romain Gavras?

Son of the famous Franco-Greek filmmaker Costa-Gavras and producer Michèle Ray-Gavras, Romain Gavras is 41 years old. He is particularly known for being the director of “Le Monde est à toi”, a dramatic comedy with Isabelle Adjani, Vincent Cassel and François Damiens and the surprising and controversial “Athena”, released in 2022 on Netflix.

Close to Ladj Ly, Kim Chapiron and Vincent Cassel, he is also the co-founder of the Kourtrajmé collective. Since the creation of its film schools and the success of “Les Miserables” at Cannes, the popularity of its association has continued to grow, especially since Ladj Ly’s film has been awarded the Oscars. Montfermeil, Marseille or even Dakar, the collective weaves an increasingly large web.

But that’s not all, the filmmaker also has a certain notoriety in the production of music videos and advertising. He has notably produced spots for Dior, Louis Vuitton and Yves Saint Laurent, a brand for which Dua Lipa has been a muse for 4 years. Romain Gavras also directed the clip of famous artists like DJ Mehdi, Justice, Jay-Z and Kany West.
