Alexandre Arnault is the second son of Bernard Arnault, chairman and CEO of the fashion conglomerate LVMH. Bernard was the richest man in the world for a few weeks this summer but he’s since been overtaken by Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk. And maybe by next year he’ll overtake them in the billionaire dick-swinging competition as determined by stock performance and space travel.


Anyway, Alexandre and his wife, Geraldine Guyot, were married in June in Paris. They held a second wedding in Italy this weekend with a star-studded guest list that included the star of all stars, Beyoncé. B was there with Jay-Z and I see Julius, her long-time head of security, in some of these shots too. I love that she was in the presence of the third-sometimes-first richest man in the world’s security and still the Queen was like…no, thank you, I have my own. 

I also love that she has her mask on for all these pap shots. For health and safety, of course, and we appreciate B for encouraging mask use, but also because the best shots of herself she will provide herself, obviously. And she shared a lot! 


When I think about Beyoncé as the guest at a wedding, I wonder about the table assignments. Who do you seat with the Carters? And does it have to be cleared through Parkwood first? Was Kanye at their table? Kanye West was also at the wedding and performed. 


I know we can’t see his facial expressions but… does he seem like he wants to be there? There’s no doubt that there was a fee involved. But it’s not like he needs the money either. As we know, after a few years of estrangement, Ye and Jay are now friends again. I wonder if they spent any time together this weekend. I wonder what the vibe is between them. Like were they seated together? Who had the very good fortune of being seated with Beyoncé?
