From tennis action to lawn parties, social life in the New York suburbs has been buzzing. In the East End, some 1,200 guests turned out for the annual Southampton Hospital benefit. Jessye Norman, Matilda Cuomo, David Hockney and Roone and Gigi Arledge were among those who gathered in the enormous tent across from the hospital for the dinner and dance last Saturday night. But they almost had nowhere to go. "We thought we were going to lose the tent with last night's storm," said co-chair Meg Kirkpatrick, referring to Friday night's severe weather. "The tent was down and men had to hold onto the posts so they wouldn't fly away." North of Manhattan, Diana Ross and her three daughters were at the Westchester Country Club a few days later for a pro-celebrity tennis tournament benefiting Gilda's Club--a center to support people with cancer. Ilie Nastase, Bjorn Borg and Vitas Gerulaitis were among the tennis greats who played in the tournament. Jimmy Connors also turned out, but didn't hit the courts.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
