    Default Salma Hayek's French wedding

    What a masquerade! Oscar winners, models and a French president descend on Venice for Salma Hayek's wedding

    By Emily Sheridan
    Last updated at 6:25 PM on 25th April 2009 The people of Venice could have been forgiven the film festival had come early this year when the City of Lights was besieged with A-lists stars on Friday.
    Actress Charlize Theron, supermodel Lily Cole, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and even former French president Jacques Chirac jetted into Italy this weekend to celebrate the second wedding ceremony of Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault.
    The Mexican actress, 42, and French billionaire, 46, are hosting a second wedding for friends and family after their private civil ceremony in Paris on Valentine's Day.


    Celebration: Newlyweds Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault and their daughter Valentina board a water taxi in Venice ahead of a masked party to celebrate their nuptials

    The couple kicked off the festivities on Friday in true Venetian tradition with a masquerade-style rehearsal dinner at the 17th century Punta Della Dogana, the canal city's old custom house.
    The building is one of the most photographed in Venice as it divides the city's Grand Canal and Giudecca Canal.
    Frida star Salma showed off her stunning curves in a midnight blue designer dress and killer heels, and completed her outfit with a black and gold Venetian mask.
    Following her own to the water taxi was her new husband François-Henri, looking dapper in a black suit and matching mask, who was carrying the couple's 19-month-old daughter Valentina.

    Boarding the boat with the family was Salma's new stepson, François-Henri's son from his first marriage.

    The South African actress got into the spirit of the masquerade wearing a mask and black dress.
    Looking summery in a multi-coloured dress was supermodel Lily, who jetted in from her university studies in Cambridge for the weekend's festivities.

    Former French president Jacques Chirac arrived via water taxi with his wife Bernadette and François-Henri's billionaire father François Pinault.
    Also expected at Friday's party were Salma's close friend Penelope Cruz, Frida co-star Ashley Judd, Gael Garcia Bernal and Lucy Liu.

    Earlier on Friday, some of Salma's famous friends were spotted enjoying a spot of sight-seeing in the city's famous Piazza San Marco before the evening party.
    Woody Harrelson and his wife Laura Louie met up with magician David Blaine and his fiancee Alizee Guinochet, French actor Olivier Martinez and Salma's ex-boyfriend Ed Norton and his producer girlfriend Shauna Robertson to sip over-priced cappuccinos as they gazed at the Basilica San Marco.

    Chic: Charlize wore a plunging black dress and coat with a mask to the masquerade party


    On Saturday, Salma and François-Henri will renew their vows at the billionaire's 18th century Palazzo Grassi on Saturday.
    The Palazzo Grassi, a historic white marble palace, holds a special meaning for the couple because it is the location of their first meeting in May 2006 - where François-Henri was hosting a gala.
    They originally wed in the City Hall of the Sixth Arrondissement - owned by the Pinault family - in the St Germain area of the French capital on February 14.

    The couple's civil marriage on Valentine's Day in Paris took many by surprise because they had announced the end of their engagement just seven months earlier.

    After a low-key courtship, they announced their engagement and the Mexican's actress's pregnancy in March 2007.
    Salma gave birth to their daughter Valentina Paloma in a Los Angeles hospital in September 2007, but announced their split last July.
    They blamed geography issues because Salma is based in LA and François-Henri lives in Paris, where he runs his luxury brands firm PPR, which owns Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Balenciaga.
    But by September, rumours began they had reconciled began after they were spotted together in Paris.
    A friend of the couple told People magazine they were 'very evidently in love with each other, very affectionate in public' when they attended the Dubai Film Festival last December.

    Valentina looks a little underdressed compared to everyone else. Nice to see her bonding with her father, though. Gael Garcia Bernal AND Olivier Martinez were there? I would have died.

    I like Hayek and Pinault together for some reason and I hope they can make it work. A wedding in Venice sounds amazing. I'm jealous!

    Me too, that looks like a no-miss event. Something to remember.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.
