It takes just a few snowfalls and a little top class piste combing to get a slice of the world’s celebrities frequenting Gstaad. Late last year, at a members only to know date, more than 200 ASMALLWORLD members gathered for a three-day winter weekend party at the Gstaad Palace. ASMALLWORLD is an exclusive invite only members social network club for which members from afar flew to be in Gstaad. ‘Some arrived from Tokyo and Vancouver,’ said ASW Chairman Patrick Liotard-Vogt at the opening party in the lobby of the Palace on the Friday night as Tara Reid, Xenia Tchoumitcheva, Patricia Knoerr and Alexandra Friedli warmed themselves in front of the fire.

Suffice to say apart from the usual discretion and privacy on offer to visiting celebrities, some of the star-studded cast of Gstaad this winter just didn’t go unnoticed. At the top of the bill must be Anne Hathaway and her husband Adam Schulman who together with Madonna and her now 16 year old daughter Lourdes were in town over the new year.

Anne Hathaway was seen walking along the Promenade in the company of two of the fashion world's most respected icons Valentino and business partner Giancarlo Giammetti, who are long-term patrons of Gstaad.  Lourdes was spotted casually skiing on the Wasserngrat and it was reported in New York tabloids that Valentino supplied the caviar champagne, décor and fireworks for a private party that was touted as the hottest New years-eve invite in Europe.

 Since the time of Roger Moore, David Niven and Elizabeth Taylor’s days in Gstaad up until now, the sparkle of Gstaad continues to be found not only in its fresh snowflakes.
