Well, well, well – look who sidled into Singapore earlier this week – Hollywood A-lister Gwyneth Paltrow! While we were at home eating ham, Gwynnie was chilling in Marina Bay Sands’ famous infinity pool on an unusual floatation device. (What’s wrong with an old fashioned inflatable crocodile, eh?).
Why the gravity-defying photoshoot? The stunner was draped across a posh plane seat to commemorate the launch of British Airways‘ A380 flight between Singapore and London.
Gwyneth – wearing a glamorous floor-length teal halter dress by Safiyaa and heels by Jimmy Choo – appeared to have a fabulous time enjoying views across our lovely city as she posed blithely in the plush seat. (Yes, we’re still wondering how the whole rig stayed above the water – perhaps there were a few scuba chaps keeping it afloat from below).
She said: “Singapore has always been a top destination on my wish list, so when British Airways approached me… I couldn’t resist – it was a great opportunity, both fun and truly unique. The location for the shoot was stunning and I’m glad to finally have a photo of myself in the famous infinity pool.
‘I’m a big fan of the local cuisine here, especially the chilli crab, and I’ve really enjoyed exploring the city and trying the amazing variety of food on offer. There’s still so much that I want to visit here and I look forward to returning!”
Hey Gwyneth, you can stay at ours if you like.
