what to wear Hamptons

The Annual Watermill Center summer soiree really sizzles, and this year’s Fly Into the Sun theme will be hotter than ever.  On Saturday, July 29, guest will assemble at Founder and Artistic Director, Robert Wilson’s vision of  enchanted forest and performance art extravaganza, which unites the worlds of art, performance, music, theatre, design, architecture and fashion.  Presented by Van Cleef & Arpels, honoring Laurie Anderson & Isabelle Huppert, and In tribute to Lou Reed, it will be an evening of excitement and enchantment.   All of the funds raised support  The Center’s year-round Artist Residency and Education Programs.  

Gigi Dick, Hilary’s daughter is interning at the Foundation this summer so we set off to find something sensational to wear.  There will be many interpretations of “Dress Code:  Dark Shiny Matter”  but we chose to take it litterally and came up with two sensationally festive looks.  The evening begins with 6pm cocktails, performances, silent auction and art installation.  At 8pm, attendees are treated to a dinner with live auction and more performances.  And at 10pm the revelry continues with lively dancing into the wee hours.   The creatively, art-inspired event  is not to be missed by art lovers and aficionados of the Hampton summer social scene.  “Hey girl, take a walk on the wild side!”
