Sony's Mickey Schulhof gave a Polynesian-theme party Saturday in the Hamptons, and it added to his reputation for staging one of the wildest summer events of the season. Gene and Bonnie Pressman and Sandy and Bob Pittman flew in from Westchester County to attend the party at East Hampton Point, which Robert Isabel turned into a tropical paradise. He flew in from Hawaii 400 fresh orchids--which were draped around every pillar and made into leis--and imported grass skirts for all the hula dancers. Sony, of course, took care of the music by enlisting Shabba Ranks to perform and Tom Finn to deejay--using enough sound equipment to support a Central Park concert. Among those who were greeted with a powerful pina colada at the door were Mariah Carey and Tommy Mottola, Peter Brant and Stephanie Seymour, Patty Raynes, Nina Griscom, Claudia Cohen, Julian and Olatz Schnabel, Jann and Jane Wenner and Jonathan and Laura Tisch. Every time another limo pulled into the parking lot, everyone went on a Michael Jackson alert. Word was the newlywed told Schulhof he was going to drop by--but he never did. Earlier, in Bridgehampton, it was a field day for kids at a benefit for the Hampton Day School on Butter Lane. While the little ones ran around the school grounds, played on the swing set or had their faces painted, their parents strolled around as if it were just another day in the park.

In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
