Last night, glitterati flocked to Marrakesh, Morocco for the opening of a Chopard boutique at the La Mamounia Hotel. They got some huge names for the opening: Gwyneth Paltrow, Salma Hayek, Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr, Jennifer Aniston, and Juliette Binoche were all in attendance. I guess no one celebrates Thanksgiving anymore? Also, note this: Orlando and Aniston flew in on the same plane, and there was some minor gossip that the two of them were hooking up. Orlando made sure to pose with his girlfriend Miranda Kerr the whole night, and Jennifer Aniston was solo. Aniston wore a black halter dress with a slit up the back. She favors the halter dresses quite a bit:
Salma Hayek wore black too – her dress was a one-shoulder gown that I find pretty boring. That pin ages her too – it makes her seem like a lady who is all about scarves and gaudy pins:
Most people are declaring Gwyneth the fashion victor – which I kind of agree with. Her dress is very pretty, but it does wash her out a bit. Gwyneth attended the event without husband Chris Martin, and it happened to be the anniversary of her father Bruce’s death, which she memorialized in this week’s GOOP newsletter. I do hate Gwyneth’s hair like this – I hate the style, and I don’t think it does anything for her.
My other favorite from the event was Juliette Binoche. She wore a really pretty red dress to the event. I could do without the added little puff of fabric at her neck, but it still works. I think she looks amazing, and totally ageless. Damn French women! No, seriously, how much would kill to look like this at the age of 45? She manages to be both cute and beautiful.
Sigh… I love her. I need to watch The English Patient again. She’s one of my favorites of all time, quite honestly. She always comes across as such a sweetheart too, never snooty. It’s a shame people will only to be talking about Gwyneth and Aniston and Orly from this event.
