Justin Bieber suits up for a yacht party in Cannes, later jamming with Wesley Snipes at a club where The Expendables gathered to throwdown.
It’s been a while since the world saw Justin Bieber in a suit. But never say never. The singer dialed his style up donning a tuxedo jacket, as his excellent Cannes adventure continued over the weekend.
The 20-year-old superstar was spotted arriving at Participant Media’s 10th anniversary party held aboard the “Oasis” superyacht Sunday, with childhood buddy Ryan Butler, production A&R co-ordinator Corey Gamble and his bodyguards.
Justin wore a Dolce and Gabbana navy-black tuxedo jacket with black satin lapels teamed up with loose blue jeans, white shirt, black deck shoes and a slicked back preppy hairstyle.
Oh, and the mustache is back. Overall, the look was swaggy Jay Gatsby.
The “Confident” singer teased his suit surprise to fans, tweeting an Instagram of himself in his tuxedo while readying for the night ahead.
He captioned it: “Lord knows.”

Bieber and his crew reportedly swung by the Bungalow 8 & The Weinstein Company party, later hitting the Gotha Club, which was hosting a night for The Expendables 3 movie cast.
In attendance were Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Harrison Ford, Patrick Hughes, Kellan Lutz and Wesley Snipes, who jammed with Bieber.

The night before, Justin made a surprise appearance at the A-list heaving Vanity Fair and Giorgio Armani Cannes Film Festival party held at the Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes.

Vanity Fair reported Bieber was a “high photo-op demand” guest, with Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence heard loudly saying, “I want to meet Bieber!” as soon she heard he had arrived.
The pair were put together and pleasantries exchanged, although Lawrence declined to pose for a photo, as apparently the actress wanted their introduction to be as “real people.”

At the end of his first night in Cannes, Justin partied with veteran rapper Busta Rhymes, who was celebrating his 42nd birthday early at Gotha.
A shirtless and reportedly merry Bieber, who collaborated with the rapper in 2011, led the crowd in a rendition of Happy Birthday. Paris Hilton also attended the event.
TMZ reports Bieber is beginning to embrace a relatively healthier lifestyle, while his manager Scooter Braun took to Twitter early Sunday to share feedback from someone at the Vanity Fair-Armani party, praising the singer’s behavior as “respectful” and “polite.”
The unknown messenger signed off their note to Braun, saying of Justin, “He’s back.”
For his part, Justin’s social media updates from Cannes have even more positive than usual.
Is Bieber back? If so, two things: It’s about time, and we’re glad to hear it.
