LOUNGING ON THE LAKE: After sitting front row at Versace’s men’s spring show in Milan last month, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones have been enjoying a bit of down time with their children at Donatella’s villa on the shores of Lake Como. They’ve stayed well out of the paparazzi’s lenses, barely venturing into town. But the Hollywood power couple has been spotted with another A-lister. On Monday, Douglas and Zeta-Jones were said to have spent the afternoon with George Clooney, touring the lake by boat. Clooney, who bought a lakeside villa last year, has become a regular fixture in Como. The actor is often seen biking around the lake or even playing in a pickup game of basketball.
BINGE SHOPPING: As far as Hamptons benefits go, the sixth annual Super Saturday event this weekend is among the higher-ticket items of the summer, with an adult entrance fee of $375. But the savings are worth it, based on the offerings several designers are putting together for their booths at the binge fest. Hostess Donna Karan, for instance, held back a few of her polkadot spring dresses that sold out at retail, knocking at least 30 percent off their original $2,695 retail price tag for the sale at Nova’s Ark Project in Water Mill, which benefits The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
