WEDDING BELLES: Mexico got a bump in tourism last Saturday when Los Angeles public relations maven Ashlee Margolis tied the knot with Dan Fishman at The Tides hotel in Zihuatanejo. The Kelly Wearstler-designed property (husband Brad Korzen also owns The Viceroy hotels in Santa Monica and Palm Springs) was booked for 240 guests including Aimee Osbourne, Paula Patton, Robin Thicke, Sanaa Lathan, Bijou Phillips, Danny Masterson, Monet Mazur, Shoshanna Gruss, Charlotte Ronson, Sasha Alexander, Jessica Capshaw, Regina Hall and Shiri Appleby. Cherokee owner Robert Margolis spared no expense for his eldest daughter’s wedding, flying out a 12-piece band, DJ Tendaji Lathan, two florists and a lighting designer, plus event producer Tony Schubert. The bride wore a gown by Carolina Herrera and shoes by Jimmy Choo for the beachside ceremony.

COS, H&M’s classy cousin, on Thursday night feted the opening of its highly anticipated first Parisian store, located in a sprawling former hammam in the lively Marais district. Young French synth-pop band The Teenagers, fresh from a U.S. tour, played DJ for the evening, while guests included Zoé Felix, Ara Starck, acting sisters Clotilde and Annelise Hesme and French actor Andy Gillet. His movie “Antique” came out in Japan last week. “It’s a comedy,” he said, adding it is set for release in South Korea this summer. As well as building a presence in Asia, Gillet appears in the upcoming play “Les Justes” (“The Just Assassins”), which opens this fall in Paris. With minimalist white walls and railings, the new Paris unit, the 15th COS store, is intended to appear like a “blank canvas” to showcase the clothes rather than the space, according to creative director Rebekka Bay. So when is COS going to hit the American market? “No plans yet,” explained COS brand director Pernilla Wohlfahrt. “But we plan to introduce COS in the same markets as H&M.”
