Louis Vuitton New Sydney Store VIP Party

Early today luxury brand Louis Vuitton opened a new store (Louis Vuitton George Street Maison) in Sydney, Australia, and this was followed up this evening with a VIP party with a healthy amount of celebrities and other VIP’s on hand, along with about 30 media personnel covering the black carpet outside the building.

The Louis Vuitton George Street Maison, understood to have cost in the region of million, will deliver three-storeys of men’s and women’s fashion, plus "personalised services".

The iconic French fashion brand enjoyed its VIP opening in Sydney earlier today with Australian actress Cate Blanchett getting a bit of media rub off from the event today.

Tonight many more celebs were present with the list including Ronnie Wood (Rolling Stones guitarist), Melissa Doyle, Miranda Kerr, Erika Heynatz, Delta Goodrem, Isabel Lucas, Megan Gale, Laura Bingle, Heidi Middleton, Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Samantha Harris.

Company CEO Yves Carcelle was on hand at both events, and was Oceania CEO Philip Corne.

Mr Corne advised the new development had been a long time coming for the brand, which now has 10 stores across the nation.

"We wouldn’t commit to the investment until we found the right space that allowed us to present the brand as we should," he said.

Corne understands that his brand is high end luxury and not for everyone: "People have worked hard and are rewarding themselves."

As Time magazine once said, it was the French who "practically invented the notion of luxury in the 17th century, and in the 18th century, when Marie Antoinette took up residence in Versailles, and added her own twist to the genre". After conducting a survey on global luxury, the magazine concluded Europeans regard "luxury as a means of expressing their individuality and style while placing high authenticity and pedigree".

In Sydney apparently there is a group of cashed up consumers who don’t mind spending up on luxury goods.

A big congratulations to top brass Yves Carcelle, Philip Corne, Jean-Baptiste Debains and their team for putting on a great day and evening event.

Louis Vuitton cool and hip tips: we understand that the company sometimes creates very limited amounts of personalised goods. How about a guitar case for Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, a surfboard and surfboard cover (what pro would actually use that) and even a skate-board and cover (good luck with Maroubra Beach Skatepark local boys). When LV talks "personalised services" and "personalised products", they aren’t kidding.

David Hasselhoff Joins The Celebrity Apprentice Australia; Dog Day For The Hoff

"The Hoff" flew in to Sydney, Australia yesterday off the long flight from London, but Hasselhoff didn’t look too worse for wear.

Yesterday he was doing Bondi Beach and today he tipped off the world via his Twitter that he would be at Alexandria today, and "The Hoff" didn’t disappoint.

Today he appeared in a motivator type role for Australia’s Celebrity Apprentice as he participated in the celebrity dog wash antics at Sydney Park, Alexandria, in front of an appreciative crowd of almost a thousand (and a few hundred dogs).

Ian "Dicko" Dickson and Vince Sorrenti appeared to be the most vocal on the megaphone in getting pooch (and Hoff) lovers to part with their hard earned cash. All had to work hard as the celeb dog wash and other doggie activities occurred in 30 something degrees heat. Hoff was able to cool off a bit with his young girlfriend and was seen reaching for the sweat rag more than once. Hoff’s son seemed to enjoy himself, and former AFL star Jason Akermanis was frequently running around the park’s stalls. Even Batman and The Joker from DC Comics fame showed up for the fun. On the other side of the park the women’s team got into the spirit of things too, but Hoff’s team drew the biggest crowd 10:1. All the talent we spoke with today were very friendly and seemed to genuinely appreciate the strong turn out.

When quizzed about his favourite breed of dog, Hasselhoff joked "Hoff Dog", which got a nice reaction from the crowd. His shirt removal appeared to get the biggest pop from the crowd and as you would expect news media and fans focused in on Hoff’s chest.

To their credit, event organisers offered water to the crowd. Police were on hand for the event and its understood things ran smoothly throughout.

Channel Nine producers believe former Baywatch star Hasselhoff will guarantee the second series of Apprentice will make global headlines.

Hasselhoff is appearing on the show to raise money for his nominated charity, Starlight Foundation.

Today he joined other signings including outspoken and gay AFL identity Jason Akermanis, former Australian Idol judge Ian "Dicko" Dickson and others. Also participating in today’s dog mania was comedian Vince Sorrenti, Ben Dark and Tania Zaetta and Lauryn Eagle were on the ladies team.

Thousands of dollars was raised today but we understand you will have to tune into Channel Nine to find out exactly what the final $ bottom line was.

Filming of the new Australian celebrity Apprentice began in Sydney this week.

The show will once again be hosted by Australian finance guru Mark Bouris.

This coming Celebrity Apprentice is expected to rate higher than the last series, and if a success, producers will consider a third time lucky run. Woof.
