In the Village Prestige and backstage it was all anyone could talk about this afternoon. Who would be the judges of the Style & Competition for Amade? What outfits would the teams come up with? Who would win? We had to wait until 10pm for the first answers.

Just before the class started, the jury took up their seats in great armchairs overlooking the arena and spectators discovered Jean Roch delightfully flanked by Julie Ordon and Carole Bianic. In the arena the chefs Bertram Allen and Tanguy Dobremez from Team Hyatt got the ball rolling followed by the Gucci's Blues Brothers Edwina Tops-Alexander and Guillaume Canet. For Belenergia the hilariously funny Michael Jackson/Bernardo Alves and Tina Turner/Vincent Bartin notched up the first 10/10 for artistic interpretation while Jane Richard Philips and Camille Condé Ferreira, alias "Mario & Luigi" left the others standing by recording the fastest time.

When it came to putting on a show though the clear winner was the Laiterie de Montaigu, represented by Julien Epaillard and Benjamin Castaldi, who offered us a real sword and sandals spectacle. We should also give a special mention to the young Eden Leprévost, who, aged just 11, charmed the public as Princess Leia taking on his mother, Pénélope/Dark Vador. This was a class all in a good cause, raising some €116,000 for children's rights. The money was presented to Charlotte Casiraghi for the charity of which her mother, HRH Princess Caroline of Hanover, is president.

Just like every evening, dancers then moved on to the Bar Lounge for a new, exclusive set from DJ WIKY, resident DJ at Jean Roch's VIP ROOM.
