DALLAS & EL JADIDA, MOROCCO, Nov 1, 2009 / FW/ — Let it be said that hotel magnate Sol Kerzner knows how to throw a party. With his wife Heather and two children at his side, Sol Kerzner welcomed 1,500 guests at his newest resort, the Mazagan Beach Resort in Morocco.

The lavish fireworks and mesmerizing performances by the fire eaters and snake charmers cannot dim the light on the glitterati guests – couple Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts, Naomi Campbell and her boyfriend Vladislav Doronin.

Lindsay Lohan, who is rumored to have brought her new male model boyfriend in Morocco, arrived alone but easily found friends among the guests and even found time for a change of wardrobe.

Gerard Butler arrived with a friend, but went stag on the red carpet. His unidentified friend was also nowhere to be found during the party, Butler choosing to hang out with the hosts Sol and Heather Kerzner, fellow Brit Guy Ritchie and singer Oum.

Just for the record, 1,500 guest guests were surrounded by 100,000 roses, 10,000 candles, 50 horses from El Jadida dressed in the national tbourida costume, more than 300 traditional folk troops and fire breathers in celebration of the opening night of the latest Kerzner International Resort.
