Among those who popped over to the East Hampton UA theater and then to Ron Perelman's Wainscott estate were Ed Burns and Christy Turlington Burns, Stella McCartney, Christie Brinkley, Kate Capshaw, Rashida Jones, Lauren Bush and David Lauren, Barbara Walters, Donna Karan and David Geffen. Mariah Carey even sauntered party, as did Brooke Shields.
But for Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow, the evening's real star was Jake, who seemed to be headed for the director's chair when he was barely out of diapers. "He would go to the set with Bruce [Paltrow]," Danner said. "And he'd say, 'I think that take was better than the last one.'" And Gwyneth claimed her brother needed no advice from her on how to make the movie. "This was all him," she said proudly.
The day before, Dolce & Gabbana drew a well-heeled group of socials to Nello in Southampton for a runway show and quick shop. Samantha Rosen, Serena Boardman, Stephanie Seymour Brant, Fabiola Beracasa and Jennifer Creel fueled up on chicken paillard and chilled sorbet before diving into the racks of wool jackets, wide-legged pants and slim-fitting frocks.

Leitch joked to the crowd gathered at the Mulholland Tennis Club, which included his mom Enid, wife Kirsty Hume, and their tow-headed three-year-old Violet.
