It was a super-jumbo job fit for a super-star as Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow jetted to Singapore this week to launch British Airways’ A380 between London and the Southeast Asian city.
The Hollywood star dazzled onlookers at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, as she posed for a gravity-defying photo shoot, which saw her suspended in a British Airways Club World seat in the middle of the resort’s famous infinity pool.
Towering 650 feet above street level, the 150-metre pool offers one of the most dramatic skyline of the city.
The actress, who jetted in from Los Angeles, looked the epitome of Hollywood glamour with a touch of British flair, wearing a floor-length teal dress by British designer Safiyaa and ‘sky-high’ heels by Jimmy Choo.
Gwyneth Paltrow, said: “Singapore has always been a top destination on my wish list, so when British Airways approached me to help launch their impressive A380 I couldn’t resist – it was a great opportunity, both fun and truly unique.
The location for the shoot was stunning and I’m glad to finally have a photo of myself in the famous infinity pool. With my job I fly a lot, so it’s great that I can now travel to Singapore in style on British Airways’ super-jumbo.
“I’m a big fan of the local cuisine, especially the chilli crab, and I’ve really enjoyed exploring the city and trying the amazing variety of food on offer. There’s still so much that I want to visit here and I look forward to returning soon.”
Flights on the super-jumbo to Singapore begin on October 28, 2014.
