    Hippie-chic zen Mountauk resort Solé East's Backyard Restaurant played host to a slew of socials, medialites and rising celebrities at a private dinner hosted by iconic luxury Italian shoe line Sergio Rossi and the new redesigned Social Life covergirl Alexandra Richards. Guests included the Sergio Rossi be-decked cast members of Nick McDonnel's seminal New York coming of age story turned movie Twelve, including Sports Illustrated model Esti Ginzburg, Phillip Ettinger, and Cody Horn (who's dad happens to be president of Warner Brothers), who all have major roles in a film that recalls the excess of Manhattan's privileged high schoolers.

    More familiar party goers, like the hostess Alex (in Julie Haus, David Yurman, and Bruno Frisoni heels), Theodora Richards, (rocking out a Patty Hansen hand me down), Luigi Tadini (who else could make Lanvin short-shorts look so good), and The City's Erin Lucas (Zac Posen, baby!) sipped on specialty cocktails like the Cooper (milagro plato, fresh watermelon juice, cointreau, lime) before enjoying chef Larry Kolar's five course meal paired with different Borghese reserves, including delish dishes like Local Monkfish with North Fork Swiss Chard and Braised Short Ribs with Mashed Potatoes and Hen of the Woods Mushrooms.

    After the sinful Passion Fruit Panna Cotta, some brave party-goers--think Sarah Basile, Carol Han, and Cena Jackson--headed over in a fleet of Audi's new clean diesel Q7's to Surf Lodge (with designated drivers of course!), while others retreated to the chilled out lawn or their Jonathan Adler meets Kelly Wearstler style bungalows for some apres-sun sleep. No matter the destination, guests all got to wake up from their hangovers to giant Sergio Rossi bags filled with beauty treats from Prescriptives, Model Co, and June Jacobs.
