Social Notes From All Over: Alors, great excitement in Paris, mes amis! Such goings-on this weekend! Monsieur and Madame Jean Arnault, Monsieur and Madame Bernard Arnault and Le Comte and La Comtesse Patrice de Maistre have sent out coveted invitations to the haute monde for the wedding of Mademoiselle Delphine Arnault. Mademoiselle Arnault, vous savez, is the delicious granddaughter of Jean Arnault, the divine daughter of the Bernard Arnaults (he is a towering figure in the fashion firmament owning such behemoths as Dior, Louis Vuitton and le bon dieu knows what else) and the future daughter-in-law of the Comte and Comtesse. Delphine is marrying Alessandro Vallarino Gancia Saturday afternoon at the Cathedral Saint-Jean Baptiste in the French town of Bazas. After the wedding is celebrated, Madame Bernard Arnault, the Comtesse de Maistre and Madame Hildburg Vallarino Gancia (she is the groom's mother) will receive at cocktails and a seated dinner and dance at the famed Chateau d' Yquem in Bazas, which Bernard Arnault owns, too.

On Sunday, Delphine and Alessandro will entertain the guests at a brunch at the Chateau d' Yquem, after which those who are curious will go tripping through the great chateau's celebrated wine cellars.


Mull this over and don't let me know what you think: George Clooney has offered his dreamy Italian villa in Lake Como to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as an ideal site for their wedding. Supposedly, Angelina and Brad are talking about getting married early next year after Brad finishes his film about Jesse James in Canada and Angelina wraps up "The Good Shepherd," which she is filming with Robert De Niro in New York.

It is expected that Julia Roberts and her husband, Danny Moder; Cindy Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber, and the newly engaged Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso will be on the guest list, but not Angelina's daddy, Jon Voight. They are still estranged, and as far as that goes, maybe forever more. Brad's divorce from Jennifer Aniston becomes final in October and Angelina and Brad want to wait for a suitable time to pass so that their marriage won't appear to be too rushed. That's so nice of them, isn't it?
