John Varvatos Kicks Off Summer With SNL's Mary Ellen Matthews

by Anna Lombardi · May 30, 2011

The East Hampton John Varvatos store opened their doors for their Memorial Day Weekend event this weekend. Custumers enjoyed cocktails, shopping and having their portrait snapped by famous SNL photographer Mary Ellen Matthews. Mary Ellen has been photographing the musicians, celebrities, and special guests of Saturday Night Live for the past two decades. With her pictures hanging from the walls, shoppers enjoyed mingling and giving back. 10% of the days sales were donated to The Animal Rescue Fund of The Hamptons. You know it is a fun time when my future husband Alec Baldwin swings by.
