Opening Ceremony Lands in Tokyo ... With Hollywood Hype!

People might be losing their shopping appetite in the US these days; well, blame it all to the serious economic recession that’s taking place.

However, that does not deter a cult multi-brand designer boutique like Opening Ceremony to expand its wing outside its home base (NYC) and land in the city of everything that’s über-chic and super trendy, Tokyo.

Located in Shibuya district, the eight-floor departmental store houses designer stores within the store itself.

Think of it as a mini mall with lots of precious designer treasures created by celebrated names in cult designer society such as Alexander Wang, Other Music, Nom de Guerre, Boy/Band of Outsiders, Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony, Pendleton, Heath Ceramics and The Row.

And of course, to celebrate its inauguration, founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon have jetted a handful of fashion icons from Hollywood, as well as a supreme legend in her own right (you’ll find it out in another second) to pump in the hype. And below are some snapshots from the event.

Carol Lim and Humberto Leon posed with the Olsen sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley. Both are sporting their signature styles.

Actors Kirsten Dunst and Jason Schwartzman for the album during the post-party, watching Julian Casablancas performing.

Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi also present at the inauguration ceremony in all-black ensemble of black dress with zipper details and cuot out shoulders, plus killer sandals. Oishi!!!

Humberto Leon and Kirsten Dunst commemorate the historic moment together against Opening ceremony photo wall.

Wait, is that Stavros Niarchos on the right? Gosh, he seems quite 'full' compared to the time when Paris Hilton was the queen of his life.

And surprise, surprise ... the legend that I mentioned just now happens to be no other than artist and late John Lennon's renowned significant other, Yoko Ono. I love you hat darling!
