Jennifer Lopez Rents Designer's Yacht For Cannes
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony aren't just yacht hopping in Cannes, they've also rented a yacht of their own as a home base. The Daily Mail reports that Lopez and her husband Marc Anthony have been hobnobbing with two of Britain's richest men, Lakshmi Mittal and Sir Philip Green. They spent time on Sir Philip Green's Lionchase after visiting Lakshmi Mittal's Amevi superyacht. But after bouncing around the Mediterranean the pair retire to Roberto Cavalli's yacht, which they have rented for their stay in the Mediterranean. Cavalli has quite a side business in yacht rental. He has owned the 133-foot yacht for six years and has rented it out to a variety of celebrity friends including Victoria and David Beckham and Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon who stayed on it during last year's Cannes film festival.
It's hard to miss Cavalli's yacht. Iin a world of blandly white yachts, the psychedelic hull of the Baglietto yacht really stands out. The unique paintwork matches Cavalli's car and helicopter and appears to be different colors in different light. It has been the home of many lavish parties, has an on-deck Jacuzzi and sleeps eight. The yacht, which bears his name, cost around $40 million to create but perhaps earns its keep (and upkeep) by serving as an advertisement for the flashy Roberto Cavalli brand.
