The social scene in the Hamptons is even more important than the sea air--and it will be particularly true this coming weekend. The parties will get going on Friday night with the premiere of "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" at the Sag Harbor Cinema. The screening is hosted by Peter Beard, Griffin Dunne, Marc Jacobs and Todd Oldham. Those expected at the party afterward at the Amazon Deck at the Long Wharf Marina include Marisa Tomei, Donna Karan, Kenneth Cole, Nina Griscom Baker, David Salle, Tatum O'Neal, Alex Lind and Alexandra Miller. On Saturday, Rita and Ian Schrager are having a party to celebrate their recent nuptials, and Beth Rudin DeWoody, along with Susan Weber Soros and Sheila Wolfe, will host a cocktail party at her house for the Parrish Art Museum. Over at the East Hampton airport, a fashion crowd, including Calvin and Kelly Klein, Donna Karan, Ralph and Ricki Lauren, Carlos Falchi and Yeohlee, are expected for the Take Off Flight '94 benefit for the Long Island Association for AIDS Care (LIAAC). And before people head back to the city on Sunday, many will stop by the Grey Dunes Estate in Bellport for the annual Sunday by the Bay benefit for Long Island AIDS organizations.
While the party machine was in lower gear last weekend, the Hamptons restaurants were just as busy as ever. Ronald Perelman and Patricia Duff had breakfast at the Honest Diner in Amagansett on Friday, Norma Kamali popped in to I Santi in Water Mill, and in East Hampton, Nick & Toni's hosted Stephanie Seymour and Peter Brant, Mary Boone and David Salle, Veronica Webb and Larry Gagosian, and Alan Pakula and Don Hewitt.
After deciding to wear a black halter top and pants for tonight's premiere of "It Could Happen to You," Rosie Perez changed her mind late Friday night. So the folks at Mark Eisen came in from the Hamptons over the weekend to open up the showroom for Perez, who then picked out a very sexy black Lurex halter dress for the event.
@chanel and @pharrell dropped what’s being dubbed as the world’s most exclusive sneakers yesterday.

The singer predicted the resale value of the shoes could reach $40K. Read the full interview on WWD.com. Link in bio. #wwdfashion (📷: Dominique Maître)
@imanshumpert is diving deeper into his creative endeavors and relaunching his clothing line, Post 90s, and is helping to raise money for the hurricane victims in St. Maarten with a jersey he’s designed with his brother. The Cleveland Cavaliers player talked to WWD about kneeling during the national anthem, working with fashion brands and how he wants to be more than an @nba player.

Not only does #TheProfit return to CNBC tonight, but @marcuslemonis has launched @shopmarcus, a new shopping and lifestyle retail experience in Aspen and Chicago, with more locations to come. The retail stores offer in-store stylists and a variety of contemporary womenswear selections.
“It’s life, I’m going to face it,” @mingxi11 sighed. “I fell, but you know, I think the most important thing is that I get back up. I had the love, the help from my sister — the girl next to me Gizele [Oliveira] — she’s so nice. When I went backstage everybody was trying to comfort me like ‘Oh Ming, it’s OK.’ I’m really, really touched. I think it’s them who gave me the courage to go back on stage for the finale,” Xi told WWD of her fall at the @victoriassecret fashion show.

@louisvuitton tapped @therealpeterlindbergh for its latest city-centric photo book, which is part of a series called Fashion Eye. The primarily black and white book captures the spirit of Berlin in 57 images shot between 1989 and 2019. “Berlin is an inspiration for me, more than a city. I mean @millajovovich is simply Berlin!” said Lindbergh. #wwdfashion
“You know, I think audiences expect a certain performance so I have to deliver to them what they’re expecting to a certain degree. But I’m also a different actor and a different person, I have my own spin on the character,” says @noahegalvin of his takeover of the leading role in “Dear Evan Hansen” following the departure of @bensplatt, who originated the role.

For pre-fall 2018, @etro created richly-colored wonderland, using tapestries, textiles and wallpapers from the Eastern world at large. The line featured floral and graphic prints and jacquard motifs, like this two-piece look featured here. #wwdfashion (📷: Giovanna Pavesi)
@kith is moving into children’s. The men’s and women’s streetwear brand has launched Kidset, a Kith kids line located in New York at 64 Bleecker Street. The line includes mini versions of staple Kith pieces like the Astor bomber jacket and the Kith box logo sweatshirts, along with a wall that can display up to 120 pairs of shoes from @adidas, @newbalance, @timberland and more. #wwdfashion
“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.
