Those American notables — editors, designers, influencers, et al. — who were not trapped in Paris for couture savored their nonworking weekends celebrating July 4 with friends, and splashing it all over social media.

Of course, fireworks were the most popular motif. Those remaining in Manhattan shuffled over to the East River to watch Macy’s put on its 40th annual fireworks show. But most notable New Yorkers had already skipped town for a long weekend away and celebrated Independence Day from afar — in various pockets of the Hamptons and Montauk, Provincetown, and even Wyoming.

From sparklers to sunset beach-scapes and all manner of barbecue fare, take a look at how the fashion crowd celebrated the Fourth of July this year.
