The Young & The Guest List: August


Cinema Society’s Premiere for Ant-Man and the Wasp
The Cinema Society recently hosted a special screening for Ant-Man and the Wasp at the Museum of Modern Art. During the film, the newest chapter in the much-celebrated Marvel Cinematic Universe, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) struggles with choices he has made as both a superhero and a father. While he attempts to re-balance his personal life with his duties as Ant-Man, he is called upon by Hope van Dyne (also Wasp) and Dr. Hank Pym with a pressing mission—he, once again, must put on the Ant-Man suit and work alongside the Wasp to uncover secrets from the past. The engaging comedy was directed by Peyton Reed and, in addition to Rudd, stars Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña, Walton Goggins, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Hannah John-Kamen, Abby Ryder Fortson, Randall Park, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, and Michael Douglas. After the screening, guests, including Rudd and Douglas, made their way to the Water Club for an after-party with hors d’oeuvres and tequila drinks named Quantum Realm, Ant-idote, and Wasp’s Potion.

Toasting Bellissima Bambini in Montauk
Christie Brinkley recently celebrated the release of her Bellissima Bambini prosecco with her close friends and family during one of the popular weekly concerts at the Surf Lodge. The Bellissima Rosé Wine, made with Pinot Grigio grapes along with hints of strawberry and grapefruit, is the newest of Brinkley’s line of organic sparkling wines. To everyone’s surprise, the lively celebration later changed themes as a surprise cake was brought out to celebrate the birthday of her daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook. Also present for the bifurcated affair was Alexa Ray Joel, Nina Agdal, and Jack Brinkley-Cook.

Annual MAISON ST-GERMAIN celebration in Malibu
Last month,  fashion stylist Kate Young transformed Little Beach House Malibu into an enchanting Parisian oasis for the Second Annual Maison St-Germain celebration. Young’s immersive installation led guests through a whimsical journey throughout the beachfront home. The display featured mesmerizing botanical arrangements from Jeff Leatham, made up of 1,000 elderflowers—approximately the same number of elderflowers it takes to perfect a bottle of the high-end liqueur. Additionally, the installation included a beautiful rooftop garden designed by Nine & Eye, where guests were seen crowding around for selfies and enjoying the mirrored arrangements, crystal readings, live musical performances from Jess Williamson, and hors d’oeuvres with specialty St-Germain cocktail pairings throughout the night. In attendance was a stylish crowd, including Nina Dobrev, Dakota Johnson, January Jones, Ashley Madekwe, Catt Sadler, Hart Denton, and Eric Balfour. After the event, all florals were generously donated to the Sportsmen’s Lodge for its Bastille Day celebration.
