Sharon Stone Rolls to Watermill

Sharon Stone will attend the Watermill Center's annual summer benefit.

For the last few years, the Watermill Center’s annual summer benefit has been a cacophony of artists, socials and the socially ambitious. A vibrant scene for sure, but lacking in celebrity. (Which, depending on your point of view, could be a good or bad thing.) Well, that’s about to change. Sharon Stone will be attending this year’s Paradiso bash on July 24. But the actress won’t be there solely for kicks; she’ll be assisting Simon de Pury with calling the live auction. Stone’s a fierce and energetic auctioneer —she’s been known to spontaneously sell a kiss in the name of charity — and she’ll have some major lots from artists including Marina Abramovic and Donald Judd helping her separate the wealthy from their wallets. In addition, International Flavors & Fragrances perfumer Loc Dong, who worked on Marc Jacobs’ signature scent and Island Michael Kors, has created a custom fragrance, WM, Watermill Paradiso Scent, of which 100 bottles will be up for grabs. No doubt Stone would prefer you dab a bit behind your ears pre-smooch.
