Palm Beach, Fla. – Michael Jordan got married over the weekend to 35-year-old former model Yvette Prieto in Palm Beach. Here are some of the luscious details.
The vows were exchanged at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea with nearly 300 guests, including Tiger Woods, Patrick Ewing, Spike Lee and Ahmad Rashad. The reception was at the Bear’s Club in Jupiter, a luxurious private golf club.
Prieto wore a French silk voile corseted sheer sheath gown by J’Aton Couture. The gown featured French seamed crinoline borders that cascaded into a dramatic cathedral train finished in lace, with accents of a peacock-feathered design.
Entertainment included singers K’Jon, Robin Thicke, and Usher, and the Source, an 18-piece band.
The seven-layer white rum wedding cake was covered in white fondant and sugar crystals, and adorned with crystal brooches and the couples’ monogram on the top layer.
Guests sat at tables that were a continuous candle-lit landscape with a myriad of crystal candelabras and mercury glass vessels, each filled with one variety of white flower, including roses, peonies and tulips, and one accent of purple.
Queen Helen is toast of Olivier Awards
Helen Mirren was crowned queen of the London stage at the Olivier Awards Sunday, while the compelling canine-titled teen drama “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” emerged as best in show with seven trophies. Mirren, 67, was a popular and expected best actress choice for her regal yet vulnerable Queen Elizabeth in “The Audience,” Peter Morgan’s behind-palace-doors drama about the relationship between Britain’s queen and its prime ministers. The actress, who won an Academy Award in 2007 for playing Britain’s monarch in “The Queen,” quipped that it was 87-year-old Elizabeth who deserved an award, “for the most consistent and committed performance of the 20th century, and probably the 21st century.”
