Entourage muse Ari Emanuel is gearing up to marry his fashion designer fiancé Sarah Staudinger in a lavish St. Tropez ceremony after a year-long engagement – with dozens of A-listers expected to jet in from around the world to attend the event, which is understood to have been scheduled to coincide with the end of the glitzy Cannes Film Festival

Sources confirmed to Page Six that the businessman, 61, and the clothing designer, 32, will tie the knot in the upscale southern French coastal town this weekend.

According to the outlet, the couple planned their nuptials to coincide with the glamorous Cannes Film Festival, which kicked off on May 17 and is set to conclude on May 28, so that guests could easily make their way to St. Tropez after the movie-focused festival comes to an end.

The pair, who began dating in 2018 and got engaged last year, boast an impressive network of high-profile pals through their respective jobs.

How Hollywood agent Ari Emanuel’s star-studded career inspired Entourage character Ari Gold

Described by Fortune as ‘one of the biggest guns in the consolidating entertainment business,’ Emanuel – who co-founded Endeavor Talent Agency – was the inspiration for Jeremy Piven’s character, Ari Gold, in the HBO hit Entourage.

The show follows the career of actor Vincent Chase, who is loosely based off of Mark Wahlberg.

Since Emanuel manages Wahlberg, show creator Doug Elli said he just ‘had’ to include him in the series. 

‘I went into the initial pitch meeting [for the show] and met Ari Emanuel, who said, “All right, it’s Mark and his life. This guy is going to write it, and if it sucks, we’ll fire him and someone else will rewrite it,”‘ Ellin once said, according to Cheat Sheet

‘I had never seen anybody in this business really talk like that … So I said, “This guy is a character. He has to be in the show.”‘

Emanuel and Staudinger are notoriously private when it comes to their relationship – Emanuel doesn’t use social media and Staudinger never posts any content with him, however, they have been photographed walking the red carpet together a few times throughout their romance. 

It’s unclear how Emanuel and Staudinger first met, but the two moguls started dating in 2018.

They briefly broke up in 2020, and at the time, sources told Page Six that Staudinger had been living with Emanuel but moved out after the split.

They got back together in early 2021, and he popped the question in May of that year.

News of the engagement came five weeks after Emanuel took his entertainment and events company public – which also owns the wildly-popular mixed martial arts organization UFC, the Miss Universe pageant, and IMG, a global sports, events, and talent management company.

After its debut on the New York Stock Exchange, it had a valuation of $10.8 billion. 

Emanuel began by working in the mailroom at Creative Artists Agency (CAA). Throughout his career, he was a partner at InterTalent and a senior agent at ICM Partners.

In 1995, he co-founded Endeavor Talent Agency; the company merged with William Morris Agency in 2009. 

Now, Emanuel still owns a stake a stake worth around $480 million in Endeavor, according to Bloomberg.

Emanuel was previously married to Sarah Addington for 20 years, and together, they welcomed three sons. 

Dirt reported that Emanuel purchased a two-acre $27.5 million mansion in Beverly Hills in October 2020, which could serve as his and Staudinger’s first home as a married couple. 

Staudinger spoke to DailyMail.com about the vision behind her brand last year.

‘We launched Staud because we felt that there was a need in the marketplace for elegant chic clothes at an accessible price point,’ she said. 

‘We felt like everything out there was overly trend driven or overpriced. Our goal is to create timeless designs with an elevated aesthetic at a reasonable price.’

As for why she believed her brand was so popular with celebrities, Staudinger told DailyMail.com: ‘I think it’s for the same reason the rest of our customers seem to connect to us.

‘Our pieces allow celebs to make a statement that speaks to their style rather than just the garment or designer they are wearing.

‘Most of the girls that wear our clothes have amazing taste and want to express that and we provide them the canvas.’
