The Hamptons party scene roared back over the weekend with a star-studded Gatsby-themed party that would have made F. Scott Fitzgerald proud.
The glamorous bash — one of the first out East following the pandemic, for a fully vaccinated crowd — was to celebrate the birthday of Daniel Benedict and was thrown by his other half, Cinema Society founder Andrew Saffir.
Guests — many who were seeing each other for the first time in more than a year — donned flapper dresses and dinner jackets and were excited to hug and let loose.
Aptly, the first song that got everyone up to dance was George Michael’s “Freedom.” Among those decked-out and dancing were Drew Barrymore, Mariska Hargitay and Peter Hermann, Jane Krakowski, Christie Brinkley (left), Dermot Mulroney, Jennifer Esposito, Katie Couric, Gayle King, Don Lemon (second from left), Donna Karan (in feather boa), Cynthia Rowley, Jill Kargman, Carla Gugino, Rosanna Scotto, Rob Wiesenthal, Zosia Mamet and Evan Jonigkeit.
Brooke Shields (right), who has recovered well from a broken femur after a fall in January, said, “I never thought I would dance again, but here we are. It is so beautiful to be back together again.”
