Graydon Carter still Cannes king as A-Listers grace Airmail fete

Graydon Carter still reigns supreme when it comes to throwing a good party.

The media mogul, who started Vanity Fair’s revered Cannes party back in the 1990s, threw his first bash at the famed film fest with his new project, Air Mail, teaming up with Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav and bringing out A-listers to the lux Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes.

Leonardo DiCaprio walked in chatting with his “Killers of the Flower Moon” director and longtime collaborator Martin Scorsese and the cast hung out in section at the back of the large deck, where DiCaprio was seen for once without his usual mask and cap. At least for a little while.

“When he got up from their section, maybe to use the bathroom or something, he put his black baseball cap back on,” says a spy. “It’s like his invisibility cloak.”

New parents Robert De Niro, 79, sat with girlfriend Tiffany Chen. It’s been just over a month since she secretly welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Gia Virginia Chen-De Niro, on April 6.

Scarlett Johansson and her “Saturday Night Live” hubby Colin Jost turned up late after the premiere of her new Wes Anderson film “Asteroid City,” which got a six-minute standing ovation.

The movie star was seen getting congratulations from well wishers.

Sting hung out with producer wife Trudy Styler near the Dom Pérignon bar.

Despite harsh reviews of the controversial HBO show “The Idol,” the cast came out in force. Lily-Rose Depp attended, as well as Hank Azaria, Troye Sivan, Hari Nef, Da’Vine Joy Randolph and Moses Sumney.

Zaslov was seen mingling with the crowd, occasionally dancing and looking like he was having a blast.

We hear Carter, not usually the retiring type, was tucked away at a table somewhere inside the legendary hotel.

Also at the party: Eva Longoria, Paul Dano, Rebel Wilson, Jane Buffet, Air Mail Look editor Linda Wells and “Karma Chameleon” singer Boy George.

Warner Bros. movies through the years, including “Clockwork Orange,” “The Wizard of Oz,” and “Singin’ In The Rain,” were projected on the surface of the pool. 

Former Vanity Fair illustrator Robert Risko, who was unceremoniously canned from the mag last January after 40 years, created a custom mural for the bash.
