There were some (literally) glittering guests at the newly renovated Caesar Garden at the Southampton Arts Center, for a cocktails-and-dinner party sponsored by fancy diamonds company Graff.
Kara Ross and Simone Levinson sparkled with stunning Graff jewelry, we’re told, which was also featured in small showcases down the long beautifully designed dinner table for 50 guests, including enigmatic billionaire John Paulson, socialite Anna Rothschild, Casey Cole, Fiona Howe Rudin, and new couple Danny Baker and Petra Khashoggi.
Page Six recently revealed that fellow society scions and childhood friends Baker and Khashoggi had struck up a romance during the pandemic. “We both feel very fortunate to have reconnected during these trying times,” Khashoggi told us.
The bash was catered by Acquolina and, according to a guest, “highlighted the important work the Southampton Arts Center does.”
The event was also in anticipation of the SAC patrons circle charity event that will be held on August 20th.
According to its website, the SAC “is committed to community building through the arts.”
It says that it “presents and produces inspiring, inclusive, socially and regionally relevant programs across all disciplines – welcoming, connecting, and collaborating with the diverse members of New York’s East End community and beyond.”
It also says it intends to be “distinguished as a destination for multigenerational audiences to have artistic, educational and transformational experiences. Using the arts as a unifier we will provide a platform for the many voices who comprise our region creating mutual understanding and effecting positive change.”
