Wedding of Lolita Osmanova and Gaspard Avdolyan on July 1 in Los Angeles, and, according to media reports, only the services of florists cost the couple's parents $ 500,000, the total budget of the event is several million. The venue for the banquet was the legendary Dolby Theater - the very one where the Oscar Awards ceremony is held annually. But this time the main actors were not movie stars and film academics, but a young couple who had just exchanged wedding rings.
The bride, Lolita Osmanova is the daughter of Eldar Osmanov, one of the owners of the Mezhregionsoyuzenergo holding company (the largest assets are companies Tagilenergosbyt, Chelyabenergosbyt, Arkhenergosbyt, Vologdaenergosbyt, Khakakasenergosbyt, Roskommunenergo). The groom, Gaspard Avdolyan is the son of Albert Avdolyan (the founder of the company Scartel, the owner of 1.3% of shares in the Qiwi payment system and 50% in the Oguzhinsky coal deposit in the Amur region). According to Forbes magazine, his fortune is about 800 million dollars. Albert Avdolyan is living, as the American media write, in a Beverly Hills estate worth $ 13 million, so he did not have to go to the wedding. And to all the guests the parents of the young paid for the flight and hotel rooms.
The bridegroom's occupation is not specified, the bride graduated from MGIMO one year ago. "The beautiful Balkarian bride" - so they call Lolita in the comments in social networks - really looked dazzling in the decorated with lace and precious stones wedding dress from the Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad.
The place of action, of course, was defeated. Guests instead of standard invitations received black suitcases with tempting contents: an Oscar statuette, a set of playing chips, a pen, a video message and a gold plaque engraved with the names of the bride and groom. In general - "Welcome to Hollywood!". In the hall where the celebration was held, the guests ascended the staircase, decorated with huge floral compositions, to the sounds of violins performing classical works.
"I do not fully understand, I am in Russia or Armenia. Or I'm at the Armenian show "The Voice" - wrote in the social network guest of the wedding, jeweler Lory Rodkin. About $ 2 million was paid to artists who entertained guests. The star of the program was Lady Gaga (the diva appeared before the wedding guests with a blonde in scarlet furs), in addition, Jason Derulo, Nikolai Baskov, Stas Mikhailov, Svetlana Loboda performed at the celebration. "In the crowd" - a symphony orchestra, a ballet troupe and an Armenian ensemble. Were the event
Ksenia Sobchak and Andrey Malakhov. Xenia could not resist and boasted in Instagram:
"I do not announce Lady Gaga every day!". The event itself was described as:
"In Hollywood on a Hollywood wave." True, the video from Instagram soon removed.
The aforementioned "several" are, according to approximate calculations, 20-25 million dollars. So the wedding of Lolita and Gaspard probably cost the sensational wedding of the son of one of the richest businessmen of the country, Mikhail Gutseriev, he spent "only" 1 billion rubles, or 16 million dollars, for the celebration. And the venue of the banquet was clearly more modest - the Moscow restaurant "Safisa", for all its luxury, with the Dolby Theater can not be compared (for rent, they say, paid 600 million rubles). But the costs for the invited stars, as one might expect, were approximately the same. If you believe the glossy media, Sting's fees and
Lady Gaga - around 1.5 million dollars.
Enthusiastic descriptions of a luxurious wedding somewhat spoil the mention of the problems recently experienced by Mezhregionsoyuzenergo holding (MRSEEN), owned by the bride's father. On Eldar Osmanov a criminal case was filed under the article "Fraud in the field of entrepreneurship", subsidiaries of IRSEN appear in claims for bankruptcy. At the same time Osmanov's partner in business, the general director of the holding Yuri Shulgin is wanted.
