Marbella Celebrates The Pikey Exodus With The Launch Of The Luxury Weekend

marbella luxury weekend

The Marbella Luxury Weekend was launched this evening in Puerto Banus without a single Essex accent or badly drawn tattoo, with the creme de la creme of Marbella society, all of whom were invited exclusively to this third annual event, celebrating all that is fine in Marbella.

 

Angeles Muñoz, Beatrice d'Orleans and a rather large diamond

Indeed it was with much pleasure that I was invited to one of the best envelope openings in Marbella’s vast social calender, and indeed the largest single event in Marbella promoting the reason we live here and the rest of the world wishes they did.

Our esteemed Mayoress  Ángeles Muñoz was presented with the  Diamond of Honour,  by the Association’s President, HRH Beatriz de Orleans, who is also the honorary chair of Marbella Luxury Weekend. A great honour indeed, I’m sure you can get those in your local Chino but hey it’s the gesture I guess. Seriously, Ángeles or Titi as she is affectionately known deserves any award for her tireless work here in Marbella, whether it came from the Chino’s or not.

Jose Luis Hernandez, God of tourism (the right sort) as far as I am concerned also deserved a “diamond” and surely should become our next mayor, although he told me he had no aspirations in that field on the basis that the pressure would be too much on his private life, and you know as a social photographer I can relate to that, constantly being at the beck and call of all and sundry, still tough titty Jose, I will be voting for you should the call come.

Back to the event, very few parties impress me these days in Marbella, hey it was the White party in Nikki Beach tonight…and? I’m not sure what they did for good guests because all the fine Marbella peeps were here in the Port, not a white suit in sight nor a flaming six litre bottle of Grey Goose Vodka paraded around to the Final Countdown. What a pleasure to party with people that were more concerned with playing themselves down rather than pretending they are somebody they are not, or to be fair they could never be, you can stick your White Party where a Jeraboam will never fit, however much you pay for it…

Flamenco from the truly amazing Aitana mesmerised the 500 strong crowd with the most heart rending flamenco dancing you will see, Joaquin Cortez look behind you, here comes a star! The violin player was brutal by the way, I really have no words to describe how awful it was, well I do, but not for publication.

Italian Dreams from Guarnieri

Of course the main pier was awash with luxury cars from the Italian maestro of all things great on four and two wheels, Mario Guarnieri, with two McLaren’s, a trio of the latest Porches, a septuplet of Ducatis and a brace of MV Agustas, oh and the odd Mini and a couple of strange Jeep like things you would have to be a midget to drive. Pop into Black and White and you will see a whole rack of Italy’s finest two wheeled monsters all parked by the tables. How many girls fancy having dinner with a gorgeous Italian? now’s your chance although the conversation won’t be all that.

All things being good the rest of the week seems set fair for a fine time in Puerto Banus for the 3rd Marbella Luxury Weekend, and if you live here, or are visiting this week, I strongly suggest you pop down for a visit, I’ll be the one with the big camera and an even bigger glass of Tinto.
