Peter Marino, the architect designing the proposed Cheval Blanc Beverly Hills hotel, attended a high-profile ribbon-cutting last week on the opposite side of the country. The event marked the debut of Marino’s brilliantly reimagined interior of the Tiffany & Co. flagship store on Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan. Highlights of the transformed space, known as “The Landmark,” include artwork by Damien Hirst and Julian Schnabel and a new Blue Box Cafe?
helmed by Michelin-starred chef Daniel Boulud (who will open his first outpost in Beverly Hills later this year). Attendees of the star-studded opening celebrations included notables such as Tiffany & Co. House Ambassador Gal Gadot, Hailey Bieber, Mark Wahlberg, Zoe? Kravitz, Gabrielle Union, Dwayne Wade, Tracee Ellis Ross and architect Shohei Shigematsu. Katy Perry, the Radio City Rockettes and a DJ set by Mark Ronson closed the evening out, in an event worthy of LVMH, albeit on the “Rodeo Drive of the East.”
