Veuve Clicquot, one of the largest champagne houses in the world, is marking its 250th anniversary with the Solaire Culture exhibit, a global traveling exhibition that showcases the rich heritage of the house.
Veuve Clicquot also commissioned ten influential female artists to honor the entrepreneurial spirit of the house’s namesake founder Madame Clicquot, the Grande Dame of Champagne.
Madame Clicquot is credited with many major breakthroughs in the industry, including the first vintage champagne, the riddling process, and the first known blended rose champagne.
Continuing with the festivities, Veuve Clicquot brought the Solaire Culture exhibition to Los Angeles on Tuesday. It kicked off in Tokyo in June and is set to conclude on November 17.
Some of Hollywood’s elite flocked to the opening of the exhibition held at 468 North Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.
From Iron Man’s Gwyneth Paltrow to Wonder Woman’s Gal Gadot, check out the stylish stars who commemorated the 250th anniversary of Veuve Clicquot.
1. Gwyneth Paltrow in Carolina Herrera
Proving age is just a number, the Goop founder flaunted her abs and legs in a black-and-white striped dress by Carolina Herrera.
It hails from the Spring 2023 collection, inspired by one of creative director Wes Gordon’s favorite childhood books, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

The cutout maxi featured a one-shoulder design with a billowing sleeve and a sculpted floral corsage on the shoulder. It also had a large torso cutout and a voluminous wrap-style skirt with a daring thigh-high slit and a dramatic train.
Gwyneth amped up the leggy appearance by slipping her big feet into a pair of black suede sandals with thick toe straps, thin ankle straps, and high heels.
