Designer Pierre Cardin’s dazzling and uncanny Cannes pad has been put on sale for a staggering $450 million. In case you’re wondering how one could demand such a price tag, let us jog your memory you that this mansion was home to wacky after-parties and fashion shows for over two decades. Cardin, now 92 purchased the Palais Bulles – aptly called Bubble Palace – in an auction in the 90’s. With Cardin’s name stamped on the property, we’re not entirely surprised that the mansion attracted an impressive dossier of celebrities including Marion Cotillard, Rhys Ifans, Dakota Fanning and Pierce Brosnan, and even Prince Harry’s ex-beau Cressida Bonas.
When your complex covers a sprawling 1,200 square metres, it’s only fitting that it encompasses ten inimitable space-aged rooms, three swimming pools, lush-green gardens and a 500-seater amphitheatre.

The bizarre pad was recently hired by high-end fashion house Dior, for a show to coincide with the Cannes Film Festival. At $12,500 a day, it sure comes with a steep price. Cressida Bonas was one of the high-profile models and actresses Dakota Fanning and Zoe Kravitz were in the star-studded crowd.
