Last night, one of the most anticipated soirées of the summer returned to the Hamptons. To celebrate Tod’s third anniversary out east, the Italian heritage brand, along with Derek Blasberg, Christina Lewis, and Loida Nicholas Lewis, hosted a festive dinner overlooking the dunes.
Through two immaculately manicured hedges, guests were greeted with a glass of Wölffer Estate wine and glistening views of Georgia Beach at golden hour—a picture-perfect entrance. Donning a soft pink Tod’s suit set, Emma Roberts chatted with her pals Nicky Hilton Rothschild and Blasberg. Local residents and friends of the brand Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka joined in on the fun, as did Kathryn Newton, Tamron Hall, Willa Fitzgerald, Rachel Zoe, Casey Fremont, Sai De Silva, and Patina Miller.
Nearby Lucca, a Tod’s artisan who flew in from Italy for the evening’s festivities, showcased the brand’s deep-rooted craftsmanship by walking guests through his longstanding relationship with the leather one stitch at a time. From the decadent tablescapes dressed in seasonal florals to the Italian-inspired menu, including an artichoke salad, grilled branzino, and steak, the evening was an ode to la dolce vita with a Hamptons twist.
After the main course, guests descended on the dance floor, where grammy-award-winning hip-hop group Salt-N-Pepa serenaded the crowd with a few of their favorite hits. In coordinating white and black ensembles, the duo and their unstoppable backup dancers kept guests singing along until the late hours of the evening. As we inch into the second half of summer, this impeccable fête will undoubtedly be one of the most talked about parties of the season.
