(PARIS) At Stella McCartney's show on Monday morning at the Carreau du Temple gallery space in the Marais, few even noticed Thandie Newton, Kanye West or Beth Ditto due to the real bigwigs--Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault. "Every moment is a celebration," said Hayek of married life, which she plans to spend increasingly in Paris. "I love it here. Valentina is at home with her grandmother!" And while the actress, director and producer is clearly enjoying her fashion moments, she remains as film-focused as ever. "I was so incredibly proud of Penelope [Cruz] when she won the Oscar. Wasn't she wonderful in that movie [Vicky Cristina Barcelona]? It was just amazing. I flew back to Los Angeles to celebrate with her; we did all the parties together. We had so much fun!"

Guests settled into their seats, and just as the lights dimmed and the production team began to herd the swarm of photographers, Sir Paul McCartney rushed in and took his place. Much to the amusement of the front-row, he was barely noticed--so he thrust out his arms and said, "Tah-dah!" Appropriate fawning promptly followed.
