Rusch Hour: Toasting Montauk’s New “Summer Camp”


With its fishing village roots, robust surf scene, and long association with art world figures like Andy Warhol, Montauk has always been the cooler alternative to the Hamptons—and while some may grumble that the place is becoming too popular, it still stands safely apart from its over-gentrified neighbors along Route 27. One of the attractions of Ruschmeyer’s, a newly renovated “summer camp” from Ben Pundole, formerly of the Mondrian Hotel Group, and Rob McKinley, who opened the nearby Surf Lodge a few summers ago, is that it fits right in with the area’s laid-back mood. It features a rustic lakefront setting, a ring of casual but stylishly appointed guest cabins, and a restaurant where Pundole and McKinley have partnered with the team behind lower Manhattan’s Fat Radish to put a focus on fish and other locally sourced ingredients (don’t miss the clam pizza if it’s on the list of nightly specials). The property also houses a nautically themed late-night hangout, the Electric Eel (below), which could put a serious crimp in your early-morning surfing plans. For those who insist on exercise, there are yoga sessions, a rack of handsome bikes, and, more essentially, a massage room, among other options. Ruschmeyer’s opened over Memorial Day weekend with a friends-and-family gathering that included a Saturday night dinner attended by Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber, Rogan Gregory, Pamela Love, Magnus Berger, and Tenzin Wild. After the meal, Waris Ahluwalia stepped outside to take a call with his newest collaborators, the alternative hip-hop group The Cool Kids. For an upcoming movie role, the jeweler and actor is adding the title of rapper to his résumé.

Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Neutral Times Two


If there’s any doubt that fashion is in the grip of a neutral moment, last night’s Public Theater Gala should put it to rest. Attendees sported a wide range of options, but two starlets who rarely shy away from red-carpet glamour, Naomi Watts (far left) and Amanda Peet, were among the evening’s most understated. Each showed up in a muted look—almost, we’d have to say, the same muted look. The loose white blouses, cropped wide-leg trousers, and strappy sandals were city-street casual—in deference, perhaps, to the alfresco Shakespeare in the Park performance. It’s slightly less than gala-ready, but we think these two exemplify casual done right. What do you think? Do you expect more from Watts and Peet, or are you feeling the casual chic?

Who Wore It Best At Stella McCartney?


Stella McCartney, as her dad once wrote, gets by with a little help from her friends—and plenty of them turned out to her Resort ’11 presentation yesterday. Among the well-heeled admirers were (clockwise from top left) Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Naomi Watts, and Helena Christensen, all of whom arrived in McCartney-designed duds. Each put her own spin on Stella’s wide-ranging collection: Watts and Christensen made for the airy sundresses, all sweetness and light; Paltrow channeled the London sophisticate in a boxy blazer and cropped pants; and Hudson went full-on cocktail with a glam black minidress (and smoky eyes to match). We think there’s hardly a bad look among them, but in the spirit of friendly competition, we’ll put it to you: Who wore Stella McCartney best?

Who Made Your Cannes Best-Dressed List?


The Oscars are blink-and-you’ll-miss-it compared to the twelve-day marathon that is the Cannes Film Festival; the Croisette won’t clear until Sunday. This year’s big red-carpet stories? The splashy debut of a new line—Gucci’s couture collection, Premiere—which turned up on Salma Hayek Pinault and Naomi Watts, and the emergence of Emilio Pucci as the go-to brand for something short and super-sexy (see: Evangeline Lilly). Also noteworthy was the high-profile rejection of gowns: Marion Cotillard and Juliette Binoche both stepped out in—gasp—pants.

Posen To Paris (Peut-Être), Models On Wall Street, And More…


Next season, Zac Posen is showing in Paris, where “they understand” his clothes. Or, well, he may be showing in Paris, since showing in New York in “today’s climate” is “difficult.” Confused? Guess the designer is, too. Nothing’s been decided, but it sounds like Posen has set his sights on the City of Light. [WWD]
