Eddie Redmayne and co gather at Marcus, Knightsbridge for a glittering festive VIP dinner with OMEGA.
International ambassador for OMEGA, Eddie Redmayne and wife Hannah, OMEGA President and CEO Raynald Aeschlimann, Laura Charmichael, Denise Lewis, Pete Reed, Andrew Triggs-Hodge and Daisy Lewis.
The evening celebrated the arrival of the new OMEGA Constellation Globemaster Annual Calendar watch, which is launching into boutiques across the country. The ‘Globemaster’ collection launched in 2015, with Eddie Redmayne as the face of the global advertising campaign.
During the evening, Eddie Redmayne chatted about the experiences he has enjoyed since joining the OMEGA family last year, saying “I first met the guys from OMEGA in London when they opened OMEGAHouse in at the London Olympics,” said Redmayne at the dinner. “It was an extraordinary place and this year my wife and I went to Rio to watch the Games and we got to watch beach volleyball on Cobacabana beach, that kind of takes the biscuit.”
This year Redmayne is also celebrating a second Academy-award nomination and the birth of his first child. And if that wasn’t enough, last week he was at Windsor Palace to collect his OBE from the Queen.
Following a champagne reception in the iconic Blue Bar at The Berkeley Hotel, guests dined at 2 Michelin starred restaurant MARCUS, enjoying an intimate four course dinner specially designed by Marcus Wareing. “I think this man [Marcus] is a genius,” said Redmayne. “I’m one of those obsessive people who loves watching cooking programmes but has never actually cooked anything from a cooking programme myself.”
The guest of honour Eddie Redmayne wore Ralph Lauren, with his beautiful wife Hannah looking stunning in Gucci.
