Diane Kruger and Winnie Harlow, both wearing Montblanc timepieces
The Lone Star Flight Museum was bedecked with stars to celebrate the new Montblanc StarWalker pen collection, and celebs like Hugh Jackman, Diane Kruger, Winnie Harlow and Charles Melton amplified the June evening with their particular luminosity. A larger-than-party-sized dome was constructed adjacent to the museum as part of the fete, which also commemorated the 50th anniversary of man’s landing on the moon. Panoramic cosmic views were projected onto the ceiling, staged to such classics as “Rocket Man” and “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)” that later gave way to the tracks of DJ Brendan Fallis. The StarWalker was on prominent display as guests casually feasted on Southwest-inspired fare and crafted cocktails. Former astronaut Leroy Chiao, who has spent 229 days in space over four missions, spoke about his love of space travel and the resultant “overview effect” he experienced while maneuvering high above our atmosphere. This life-changing mental shift, he says, occurs when astronauts consider the Earth as part of a larger whole. Not a bad consideration for us all.
