WRITERS AND ROCKERS

While the grown-ups were convened in the Hamptons over the last few days, the kids were cavorting in New York's East Village.
William and Catherine Rayner hosted a dinner for John Gregory Dunne and Joan Didion at their East Hampton home. Nora Ephron brought along Griffin Dunne and his wife, Cary Lowell, and Lee Radziwill, Lynn Nesbitt and Jann Wenner all turned up, everybody looking forward to dining al fresco on the Rayner's terrace right over the beach.
However, it poured all day Sunday, and the outdoor dinner--even under a tent--was nearly a disaster. "We had to take everything apart this afternoon and put the tablecloths in the clothes dryer," Catherine Rayner said.
Back in New York, models and music people played together at Babyland, an East Village watering hole decorated with cribs and Fischer Price toys--to celebrate the rebirth of model/actress Milla (Jovovitch) as singer/songwriter.
After her performance before an SRO crowd at the Mercury Lounge, the 18-year-old Milla and assorted other babes in toyland headed to the nursery-themed nightspot to share ice cream and peanut butter sandwiches with some well-known celeb offspring: Jackson Browne's son Ethan, Calvin Klein's daughter Marci, and Stephen Stills' son Christopher.
Milla said she has dropped modeling "like an old T-shirt" for music, her real passion, and she doesn't care if people think she's just another mannequin trying to prove she's more than a pretty face. "I don't do music to gain other people's acceptance," she said. "I do it because that's the only way I can express myself."
