VENICE, Italy, April 25, 2009 (AFP) - Celebrities flocked to Venice on Saturday to attend the wedding of Hollywood actress Salma Hayek to French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault.

Rock star Bono and actresses Penelope Cruz and Charlize Theron were among the glitterati spotted at the La Fenice opera hall, as the couple repeated the vows they made in February.

Former French president Jacques Chirac, a Pinault family friend, was also among the guests, as were film director Emir Kusturica and fashion designer Stella McCartney.

Venice is where Mexican-born Hayek, 42, met Pinault, 46, who is chief executive of PPR, the luxury goods and retailing group controlled by his father Francois Pinault which notably includes the Gucci Group.

The couple -- who had a daughter, Valentina Paloma Pinault, in 2007 in Los Angeles -- married discretely in Paris on Saint Valentine's Day.
