Don Burns and Greg Connors hosted their annual Midsummer Drinks Benefit for God's Love We Deliveron their Lake Agawam estate Old Trees in Southampton. Burns, one of the cyber-tycoons from the dotcom boom who walked away with a large fortune bought the old Goodhue Livingston estate five or six years ago for the at-the-time record price of $20 million. The property which consists of several acres and several outbuildings including guest cottages was designed by the architect for his family.
Mr. Livingston was a prominent architect of the late Gilded Age, in partnership with Samuel Trowbridge. Their commissions included the Morgan Guaranty Trust building (originally J.P. Morgan), the St. Regis Hotel which was built in 1904 for John Jacob Astor IV and the B. Atlman department store which still stands (as The Graduate Center, CUNY at 34th and Fifth). When Don Burns acquired the property, it had been out of the family for many years and altered either by design or benign neglect. He restored the property to its architect's original plans. It's a beautiful property, with a graciousness of a by-gone age and the comforts of the contemporary. Only a few hundred yards from the Atlantic, you can hear the surf faithfully pounding the sand in the distance in the night. Old Trees, I've been told recently, is now on the market again. For $48 million.

The Cinema Society teamed with Hugo Boss to premiere “Allegro,” a hit at Sundance and the Venice Film Festivals, at the Tribeca and SoHo Grand Hotels before a glam and gorgeous crowd.
The film was directed by two-time Cannes Film Festival winner Christoffer Boe, and marked the acting debut of Danish supermodel and superstar Helena Christensen.
The crowd loved Helena’s performance, calling it “mesmerizing,” and the film’s modern and stylish direction drew raves from the chic cineastes as well.
After the screening everyone attended the dinner outside in the Yard at the Soho Grand, hosted by Cinema Society founder Andrew Saffir.
Among those who supped under the stars were Josh Lucas, Liv Tyler and Royston Langdon, Anthony Langdon, Jack Huston, Alex Lundqvist, Bob Colacello, writer/director Terry George, Rachel Roy, Sante D’Orazio, Fabrizio Ferri, Francesco Clemente, Amy Sacco, Rufus Albemarle, Daniel Benedict, Olivia Chantecaille, Irina Pantaeva, Tiffany Dubin, Ann Jones, Bettina Zilkha, Nicole Miller, Holly Dunlap, Sessa von Richthofen, Tiffin Jernstedt, Allison Sarofim, Jackie Astier, Karen Duffy, Kate Schelter, Natalie Leeds, Ghislaine Maxwell, Isabel Rattazzi, Project Runway’s Daniel Vosovic, and the film’s producer Tine Grew Pfeiffer.
