The glamorous engagement celebration of Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sánchez in Beverly Hills recently captured the essence of Hollywood's elite. Hosted at the luxurious abode of fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg and business magnate Barry Diller, this event was nothing short of spectacular, as reported by Vogue.
The magazine's exclusive coverage showcased an array of stars, including Oprah Winfrey, Salma Hayek, and Kris Jenner, mingling with the high-profile couple. In his conversation with Vogue, Barry Diller highlighted the palpable love and affection between Bezos and Sánchez.
He described Sánchez as a vibrant force in Bezos's life, bringing out his best qualities. This milestone comes nearly four years after the Amazon founder's relationship with Sánchez began, following his separation from Mackenzie Scott, his former wife and an acclaimed author.
Bezos and Scott co-parent their son. The guest list at the engagement party was a testament to the couple's social connections, boasting names like Barbra Streisand, Robert Pattinson, Jewel, Suki Waterhouse, Miranda Kerr, and fashion designer Sarah Staudinger.
With a net worth soaring at $166 billion, Bezos and Sánchez share a close friendship with hosts von Furstenberg and Diller.
Sánchez's Chic Ensemble and Romantic Proposal
For the occasion, Sánchez, a renowned media personality from Albuquerque, chose a stunning white, off-the-shoulder mini dress designed by Laura Basci.
Bezos complemented her look with a casual yet elegant ensemble, pairing a dark T-shirt with a light-colored blazer. The proposal itself was a story of romance and luxury. Bezos, 59, asked for Sánchez's hand during a yacht trip to the Cannes Film Festival in May.
He surprised her with a $2.5 million pink engagement ring, which he had hidden under her pillow. Sánchez recounted to Vogue the overwhelming joy of that moment. As for their wedding plans, the couple is still deciding on the specifics.
They contemplate various options, from a grand celebration to a destination wedding. Sánchez expressed her eagerness to become Mrs. Bezos and her commitment to taking his last name. In a significant life change, Bezos recently announced their decision to relocate to Florida.
Wanting to be closer to his parents and Blue Origin's Cape Canaveral operations, he has expressed mixed emotions about leaving Seattle, a city that holds a special place in his heart. According to The Palm Beach Post, Bezos has invested in a lavish property in Indian Creek Village, Miami, known as the "Billionaire Bunker," marking a new chapter in their lives.
