High-end talent merges with luxury goods as Francois Henri Pinault, owner of a range of super-expensive brands – Gucci, Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta, Yves Saint Laurent, Creed, Puma and Alexander McQueen – buys a majority stake in the powerhouse Hollywood talent agency Creative Artists Agency. He is the husband of Mexican-American actress and film producer Salma Hayek, (his third marriage).
“There’s no separation between fashion and entertainment anymore,” a luxury consultant said. Celebrities attract legions of followers primed to buy what they’re promoting. Salma Hayek wears Gucci and Balenciaga gowns on the red carpet and appears next to her husband at fashion shows.
He was born 28 May 1962 3pm Rennes, France and has a powerfully ambitious chart, well-designed for the world of design, fashion and money. He has a creative and good-for-public-relations Venus in Cancer conjunct his Midheaven in a Water Grand Trine to Jupiter in Pisces trine Neptune, formed into a Kite by Jupiter opposition Pluto. His well-travelled 9th house Gemini Sun is in a hard-working trine to Saturn and a controlling square to Pluto. A leadership Leo North Node in the house of society bodes well though it does oppose his Saturn which could be problematic. His Mars in Aries, doubly determined being on the cusp of the 8th is in a risk-taking trine to Uranus. He was never going to slide unnoticed through life.
Salma Hayek, 2 September 1966, Mexico, no birth time, has an unpredictable Virgo Sun, Pluto, Uranus conjunction which falls in his 12th – so she will be an unsettling influence on him. Both of them have an Aries Moon so it will be a sparky union and with her Saturn conjunct his Moon she will either be defensive or work will get in the way. But her Moon falls in his 7th so she will be a support and her Jupiter falls in his 10th for success together.
What is intriguing is that her Jupiter is conjunct his Part of Fortune and her Part of Fortune is conjunct his Midheaven – so they are a combination built for good luck.
Their relationship chart has an affectionate composite Sun Venus conjunction and a look-on-the-bright-side Jupiter opposition Neptune. Though there is a power imbalance from a composite Mars square Pluto which could brew up a few issues in 2024 when tr Saturn is in hard aspect.
