The Creeks Halts Traffic on 27: Apollo in the Hamptons

August 21st, 2016

The Creeks was a focal point in the Hamptons last night, because Ron Perelman gave his annual Apollo in the Hamptons bash.  The not so humble estate was of course was originally the house of the Gerald Murphys–F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famously well heeled pals.  And it once came with 400 acres on Georgica pond.  Meanwhile, on Saturday night, Perelman had a cop out front. The large police  vehicle had it’s lights running as if there had been an accident. And they were checking in each guest with such care it brought traffic to a standstill for a mile in each direction on Route 27.  So there was really no easy route to travel from Montauk and Southampton–just in case you happened to, ahem,  have a heart attack.  All for a terrific cause, mind you.

Meanwhile, inside the dreamy estate, guests were seated at series of long tables, with rattan fans as name cards in the August heat with the table numbers atop a tall stick. For example, Ron sat next to Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, who was across from Lionle Richie.  Blake loaded up his plate with pulled BBQ, chicken, corn.  Also spotted Ron Mugging with Jack Nicholson, wearing rose colored glasses, also with a full plate, while he was eating.  Benny Medina was on J.Lo’s arm.

Mr. Perelman, with a C on his cap, presumably for The Creeks, smooched Robert Kraft on the cheek at one point.

As usual, you kind of couldn’t believe who was there:  Colin Powell, Governor Cuomo, Mayor De Blasio

Katie Holmes, in a lacy gown, was paling around with Georgina Chapman.  Holmes was clearly loosening up eventually as one strap her dress was hanging.

Christie Brinkley and Ciara, both with big hair, hugged for a  photog.

Jon Bon Jovi performed.

And the performances went on and on with Shelton and Stefani killing it onstage. “If you really need a brand new start“,” he crooned.  ”Why don’t you go ahead and break my heart?”  Kirk Douglas (not the old one) and Pharell Williams performed.  The Roots.  Lionel Richie.

Pharell and Gwen did a duo onstage, with Gwen belting out Hollaback Girl, and the “This is my shit” chorus over and over.” She wore those drop pants Bieber was famous for.

Lionel Richie did a melting rendition of “Hello.”

Ciara entertained  in plunging dress with boots and a dress that had a couple of broad slits.

John McEnroe wore all black with a chain around his neck going rocker with his wife, Patty Smithe.

Don Johnson and Bon Jovi mugged together.

Oh, yes, and Perelman, Ciara, Usher, Chris Rock, and Don Johnson blasted out “All Night Long” onstage.

Yeah, they did. 14117770_1790346904545605_4823210952302629571_n

Clooney Wedding in Venice

September 29th, 2014

Screen Shot 2014-09-29 at 12.08.24 PMGeorge Clooney weds in civil ceremony in Venice. Amal Alamuddin, his bride, wore a white Stella McCartney suit. She is just a dream. Met her at Jean Pigozzi’s apartment about a year ago. And she was so nice. We were both early to a thing and chatted for a bit. And as much as I adored all of George Clooney’s gal pals, Alamuddin is the smartest and most chic. I even told his mom once that they were all so so great, it must be hard for her. But Alamuddin was worth waiting for. He has finally met his match. . . And here is the Giambattista Valli Couture dress she wore on Sunday, below … 10171144_10152745036221052_3764068984812443484_n

Um, did Queen Elizabeth used to be a wee bit dowdier. I like the black and white monochromatic thing she’s trying here while unveiling a plaque at the Chunnel on the 20th Anniversary of the opening. But the video here really makes me laugh. Something amusing about the way everyone jumps to, puts on their best possible behavior possible when they’re around her.
