Dominican model receives proposal at Cannes Film Festival
Dominican model Denny Mendez caused a buzz on social media and international news yesterday, Thursday 22 May, after her Italian boyfriend, Hollywood producer Oscar Generale got down on one knee to propose to her on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet runway prior to a Cannes Film Festival event at the Hotel du Cap Eden Roc. Photographers snapped as actor John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston looked on in delight. A former Miss Italy, Denny Mendez is a model-turned-actress who appeared in Ocean’s Twelve alongside George Clooney and Brad Pitt.
Dominican-born Mendez moved to Italy as a child and sparked controversy when she became the first black Miss Italy in 1996. She was chosen one of the 10 Miss Universe semi-finalists before going on to enjoy a successful career in modeling.
Generale is a specialist in product placement and branding operations in the entertainment industry. He is known as a master of the art of linking the world’s leading companies with the highest profile Hollywood stars.
