Grand Opening of AtlantisPosted in Gallery, News
Photos of a seriously stunning Mischa at the Grand Opening of Atlantis, The Palm Resort, Dubai (United Arab Emirates) have been uploaded. So far only a handful of shots are up but more will be added shortly. The following is an extract about the event with guests including Oprah Winfrey, Charlize Theron and Denzel Washington:
The Atlantis Hotel’s exclusive opening party on Thursday evening is set to break records as the world’s most exclusive private party and will feature singer Kylie Minogue. The one-night celebration is due to bring the world’s first man-made palm island to a complete standstill as the VIP guests are chauffeur-driven to the venue. Palm residents have even been urged to return to villas and apartments by 2pm to avoid being denied entry to their homes.
At a cost of $20million (Dh73 million) the lavish party will play host to around 2,500 celebrity and royal guests and a number of VIPs from the UAE. Created by Grucci, the company responsible for the fireworks display at the opening ceremony of this year’s Olympic Games in Beijing, the Atlantis display will be visible from space and will feature giant flowers, palm trees and meteors in the UAE national colours. More than 200 pyrotechnics experts have been working on the project for more than 3,000 hours, which will see rockets launched from 716 individual spots.
To put the display into perspective, 100,000 specially-designed pyrotechnic devices will be fired in comparison to 30,000 at the Beijing Olympics — meaning the show will be just over three times bigger.
