MINNIE DINNER: A ritzy crowd descended on Montauk’s quaint Surf Lodge on Saturday night to toast the Minnie Mortimer collection. On hand at the al fresco dinner for 50 (plus assorted crashers) was Mortimer’s husband, the Oscar-winning screenwriter and director Stephen Gaghan, Lauren and Andres Santo Domingo, Amanda Hearst, Alex Kramer, Prada USA chief executive officer Graziano de Boni, Tim and Helen Schifter, Real Housewife Kelly Bensimon, Cinema Society’s Andrew Saffir and Marie Claire’s Nina Garcia. The event was something of a family affair — Mortimer’s half-brother, Paper columnist Peter Davis, organized the shindig. “Minnie and Stephen are surfers, so the Surf Lodge was the perfect spot,” he noted.

An intense and sudden downpour ended the dinner as dessert was being served, and many of the younger guests fled to an after party at the house of Phil Radziwill. Mortimer, a regular on the society circuit, launched her own label earlier this year with a tightly edited collection of dresses, skirts and tops sold in about 25 boutiques around the country. While visiting her old Hamptons stomping grounds following a recent move to California, Mortimer is also squeezing in business meetings with Bergdorf Goodman and Intermix this week.
