“to caution!” Gwyneth Paltrow called her daughter, Apple Martin, who walked in black Gucci heels down a stone walkway on the family’s property in Amagansett, New York
It was damp and overcast Saturday night, and near by actress Blythe Danner, Ms. Paltrow’s mother, mingled when guests arrived to dine in a 30-person tent near the trampoline and treehouse on the manicured patio.
Costume designer Rachel Zoe said she was just focusing on being on time while she got ready: “Gwyneth is very precise, and if she’s sitting at 7, it’s 7, maybe 6:59.”
The dinner was hosted by Ms. Paltrow and fashion designer Elizabeth Saltzman, and the occasion was the launch of the new Goop serum and Gucci’s summer collection. In attendance were Jimmy Fallon, Jodie Comer, Cleo Wade, Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld, and Dr. Julius Foo, the plastic surgeon who worked on the new product.
“We invited everyone ourselves,” Ms. Saltzman said. “This is out of my phone, texting, real relationships.”
Chef Mattia Agazi of the Michelin-starred Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura in Beverly Hills, California, prepared a dinner of artichoke salad, risotto, and baked cod. As they leave, attendees can choose produce from Amber Waves Farm, located nearby, and nibble on assorted produce including zucchini, tomatoes, and beets to go.
Down Montauk Highway in Water Mill, New York, valet workers were jumping in and out of cars as more than 460 people gathered at the Parish Museum of Art to celebrate the institution’s 125th anniversary at the annual Midsummer Magic benefit. The festivities included a dinner, auction, and dance party.
Tables were filled with philanthropists from the museum and artists participating in the “Artists Choose Parrish” exhibition, in which 41 contemporary artists with ties to the east end of Long Island are invited to select pieces from the foundation’s collection to display alongside their work.
Nanette Carter, the artist at the gallery, said she wanted the pieces she selected to focus on abstract art and feature African American artists and women.
“It was so much fun – 3,600 artworks to choose from – and I had a ball,” said Mrs. Carter.
The event, which kicked off with a showcase for the 2024 Max Mara Resorts collection, has raised more than $1.2 million.
