Italian actress Monica Bellucci and Turkish actress Belcim Bilgin were selected as cover stars for the new issue of 7000 Magazine: female figures of strength and beauty to announce the publication’s new life. The founder of the magazine, Jean-Baptiste Pauchard, hired Jules Borgeaud and Natasha Caillot as the respective design/architecture and art editors to reinvent the publication; the result is 300 pages focused on contemporary creation by artists of today and of the future. To support creativity and launch its artist residency, 7000 Magazine organized a gala dinner at the Hôtel Intercontinental, which drew guests like cover girl Monica Bellucci, singer Élodie Frégé and calligrapher Nicolas Ouchenir. During the gala, the company announced its Philanthropy Prize (in partnership with Forbes Magazine) and Young Creation Prize (in partnership with Barnes Art Advisory) linked to its charities. It also presented an exhibition featuring the works of artists included in 7000 Magazine, such as Ali Mahdavi and Marie Hazard. The exhibition is on view until March 20th at 14 rue de Vertbois in Paris.
