If those who turned up in Bridgehampton for the opening Mercedes-Benz polo match seemed a little hazy on the rules — "How many chukkers are there? And what’s a "bump?" — that’s because on Saturday there was only one game in town: being in the right place at the right time. Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos raced along the back roads from the premiere of "Stuart Little 2" in Southampton — where Helen Schifter, Tory Burch and Tiffany Dubin were joined by their favorite G-movie fans — to the polo grounds, where play benefited New Yorkers for Children. The enormous tent pitched fieldside was packed by the time de Kanavos arrived, though no one except the ever-studious Natalie Portman appeared to be watching the game. Then Portman gave up, too, and made for the refreshments.
"I tried to figure it all out," she sighed. "But now, I’ll just concentrate on food."
Debbie Bancroft’s social strategy took her from the polo tents to the Parrish Art Museum’s midsummer gala, where she milled amidst the art with Duane Hampton, Susan Burden, Nicole Miller and Katharina Otto-Bernstein.
"I’m at my kids’ soccer games all week," she said, shining in diamonds courtesy of Martin Katz. "This is my night to be glamorous."
Schifter put in a quick appearance, then headed off to a dinner thrown by Peter Morton. Carroll Petrie passed through the galleries then slipped out again. And Beth Rudin De Woody stood puzzling over her Vertu phone, on loan for the evening. Though chatting on cell phones is usually banned between the museum’s walls, how else could anyone keep track of all that was happening?
"It’s legal," De Woody decided, "at least for tonight.""
