Salma Hayek Coming To Boston - 5/12

4/24/2008 09:54:00 AM
Since I've already started the ball rolling on celebrity appearances, I figured I'd fill in one more. This one's not for another few weeks, but put it on your calendar for now.

Actress Salma Hayek is on her way to Boston. The "Ugly Betty" producer will be here May 12 to christen Puma's racing yacht. (Skipper Ken Read and his crew will compete in the round-the-world Volvo Ocean Race in a boat bearing the logo of the sporting goods company. Why Hayek? Her fiance, Francois-Henri Pinault, is CEO of the French luxury goods and fashion conglomerate PPR, which is Puma's parent company.

A little more digging has revealed the location:

PUMA Ocean Racing will reveal the name and look of its boat on May 12th when the yacht will be christened in Boston Harbour at the The Institute of Contemporary Art.

    ok, i'll answer my own question since i went to check it out today. dinner started about 6-7 pm, but the christening wasn't until after 8 pm. salma tried a few times to break this glass-like thing at the tip of the boat with a hammer, but then needed help in the end. so funny, everybody was laughing. she was looking her best, too!
