Why a market? Why not? As Miuccia Prada quipped, "It's a place of the people. All of the stands have been reinvented."
Although a few disgruntled guests lamented not being allowed into the VIP area, most enjoyed milling about the stands, digging into mini plates of paella and throwing back cocktails of fresh orange juice and vodka. "I liked that they used something from Valencia. It's sort of more original than just doing it at the port," Sastre surmised. Sevigny, clad in a Prada rose-hued bustier dress, agreed: "It's incredible. I mean, Prada really puts on a show."
Moore and Kutcher arrived an hour and a half late, waved to the crowd outside and zipped back to the VIP area, where they steered clear of the press. But Moore, sporting a Prada sequined and fur-trimmed dress, and her hubby, in an open shirt and tailored suit from the fashion house, did make time to snap a couple of photos with Prada and Patrizio Bertelli's teenage son Lorenzo.
On Monday, the action moved to the Luna Rossa base for the Louis Vuitton race series to determine who will have the right to challenge Switzerland in the America's Cup. A deafening blast of air horns sounded as the yacht left the port. Kutcher and Sevigny were supposed to work the boat in the first and second races, although they were called off because there wasn' enough wind. Too bad, because Sevigny was excited about the prospect, since she grew up in a sailing family. "I get to be the 18th man!" she said before the races were canceled.
