Who would have thought that it could be possible to overshadow the opening ceremony of the Olympics? Well, with news that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt hiring the V&A to throw a huge party two days before the games begin, and the chance that Kate Middleton will make an appearance, that might just be the case.
All eyes will be on what the night’s two biggest stars are wearing. Our money is on Kate to wear either something lacy by McQueen or sparkly by Jenny Packham. Angelina has also been known to wear the odd piece by Packham but she’s sure to wear something long and slitted to show off a leg.
The rest of the guest list remains unknown, but the Beckhams, David Walliams and wife Lara Stone, Gwyneth Paltrow and Stella McCartney are expected to be there.
According to The Mirror, the party is being held to raise money for Sports for Peace and in honour of Muhammad Ali – who has just been named as the latest face of Louis Vuitton’s Core Values campaign, following in the footsteps of Angelina Jolie. After a Champagne reception on the museum’s lawn, guests will sit down to a four-course dinner in the Raphael Gallery.
The party’s hosts are currently in London while Angelina films for Maleficent and it’s said that Brad is planning on throwing an-Olympics-themed after party following the dinner at their £20 million rented townhouse.
