JENNIFER ANISTON CAN BUY ANYTHING HER HEART DESIRES
Another surprise visitor at the LA Modernism opening night gala was Jennifer Aniston. Her exhusband Brad Pitt used to bring her to this show to shop and apparently some of his design appreciation rubbed off on her. Now she shops with her decorater and two very subtle bodyguards who could be mistaken for friends. Jennifer was very casual in jeans and a black puff sleeve blouse. She selected some 1940’s pieces, some Hollywood regency décor and some totally eclectic stuff. Among her purchases: matching Italian brass shelving units for $18,000, a pair of large Mediterranean metal lamps for $1400, and an Italian sculpture of an ostrich that included a real ostrich egg for $1500. Our favorite was a delicate French standing ashtray trimmed with Hermes leather for $2500. Looks like she hasn’t quit smoking yet.
