Everything you know about the Hamptons you learned from Sex and the City. Please stop. You’re making the rest of us look bad.

It took a decade, but you’ve cracked the code and gone native, at least on weekends. Carry on.

THINGS TO DISCUSS

☛ Bonjour, darlings! Here’s to another summer of locally sourced, 100-percent organic dish from your chic-obsessed friends at The Daily Summer. ☛ Speaking of farm-raised, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian are invading our shores with a Dash boutique and reality show. They wanted an East Hampton shop, but no dice. Southampton restaurateur Irma Herzog is leasing 64 Jobs Lane to the sisters, riling up the neighbors, who told The NY Post: “… [Irma] brings trash…People are lining up to buy Irma’s property and get her out of town. She’s a piranha.” The sisters’ quest for a megamanse rental has been a bit of a bitch, too. ☛ Scarlett Johansson bought her custom-built four-bedroom Amagansett pad for $2.2 million. Modest! ☛ David Geffen plunked down around $50 million last month for Courtney Sale Ross’s East Hamptons estate, the Cody House; neighbors include Steven Spielberg. ☛ Anderson Cooper is now selling the five-bedroom place next door to his Quogue pad for $2.99 million.

THE LIFE AQUATIC With Dree Hemingway It’s summer, finally. What’s on the agenda this weekend? I’m always desperate for a beach situation. The ocean is healing. Are you a Montauk person? Kind of? It’s a complete sh*tshow now, but it’s the only place where I can walk around barefoot! I love The Dock, this dive bar where they yell at you if you use your phone.

Leslie Mann: We went to one restaurant in Quogue, I can’t remember the name… Cameron Diaz: …I know it was right down the street from the Ramada Inn. How did you relax between takes? Cameron: We’d jump in our trailers, take off our underwear, and get crazy! Woah.

Summer Bash Chic-Sheet

CAST CHATTER

Do you get high on your own supply? Oh, wow, I’d hate to admit how much of our rosé I’ve drunk! We’ve been producing our own stuff for seven years now. Are you surprised by how popular rosé has become? It’s crazy. When we first brought it to Sunset Beach, only people who’d been to the South of France were familiar with it. Now, it’s one of the fastest growing wines in America. You’ve been in London. Will we be seeing you on Shelter Island? Of course. It’s a little more low key than the Hamptons.

The Daily wonders… What will we never see you wearing this summer?

LIFE’S A BEACH With Lucky’s Alexis Bryan Morgan

Where might we find you out East? We go to the Maidstone Club, where I spent all my summers growing up. It’s bliss! Do you miss the Hamptons of your youth? Sometimes. It was a quiet beach town and I could ride my bike everywhere. Now there are so many cars! What’s your least favorite place in the Hamptons? Nightclubs! I go to the beach most days, cook swordfish at home, and go to bed early. Do you actually go into the water? Yes! It’s all about swimming in the ocean when the water is icy cold. I don’t feel rejuvenated if I don’t do it at least once a year. Are you fond of steamy temps? I’m from Houston, so the heat doesn’t bother me. People are like, “it’s so hot!” No, it’s really not.

George Wayne’s tête-à-tête with Sean MacPherson!

MAKEUP TALK With Misha Shahzada What inspired Gigi’s cover look? It’s a “golden goddess” theme, inspired by Raquel Welch and Sophia Loren. Gigi has the perfect face to pull it off! What’s the trick to her gorgeous nude look? I aimed for a natural sunkissed look that’s not overly tan. With a bronzing brush, I dusted Maybelline Mineral Power Bronzer all over Gigi’s face. How did you create that bright red lip? Most of the face was left natural, and I used Maybelline Superstay 24 Color Lipstick in Keep Up The Flame paired with Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner in Red. The matte finish adds a modern twist.

Kate Spade New York

We’re terrible packers. Any good advice? You need a big bag, like the Babe, and a great sundress, perfect sandals, big sunglasses, hat, a little clutch to take to lunch, and a bit of costume jewelry for the evening. Kate Spade just made a beeline for the Hamptons. Why now? Our customers have wanted us here for so long, but in the past we’ve just done special deliveries from our Madison Avenue store. We’re so excited to have our own home. It looks like a white sugar cookie, with aqua shutters. What’s in stock? Lots of whimsical sunglasses, beach hats, and outdoor items. We’ll also have a special collection of beach cover-ups. So much great stuff! Location: 17 Newtown Ln., East Hampton

Suck in those tummies, chéries! La Perla is popping up again at 66 Newtown Ln. in East Hampton, filled with sleek swimwear and sultry unmentionables.

What’s new for summer? The collection is quite sophisticated and more sculptural in shape than previous seasons. Our dresses are perfect for parties or dinners, but they pair well with a bathing suit. What’s your SPF number? I’m pretty happy wearing SPF 30 with double spectrum protection daily, but I’ve heard a lot about SPF 50 recently. Got any Aussie product recs?

People really gravitated towards it because it’s really different from other concept stores. It’s pretty amazing how well we did! Where does the name Figue come from? Figs are my favorite fruit! The name also represents the Mediterranean, the summer spirit, sunshine, and sweetness. And what’s your favorite way to eat figs? I make white pizza with Himalayan sea salt, a bit of goat cheese, and sliced figs on top. How far flung are Figue’s designs?

karl comes east

When our counterfeit Karl Lagerfeld made a surprise visit to the Hamptons recently, the locals went nuts. The Daily Summer tagged along with the Kaiser for the day as he shopped in East Hampton, stopped by the beach, and checked out the Wรถlffer Estate. BY EDDIE ROCHE pHOtOgRapHY BY stEfanIa CuRtO

ATKINS SCHMATKINS Even the Kaiser can’t resist the siren call of scoop Dujour.

He said he was touring the area looking for real estate.

Bob Zellner, writer and activist, East Hampton How do you feel about Mr. Lagerfeld coming to the Hamptons? It’s the best place to be for Karl and for everybody else. Right now we’re getting ready for the summer rush. Are you a Chanel fan? I don’t own anything myself, no. I usually get that for ladies. Where should Karl setttle? Maybe North Woods? It’s very hot right now. What did you and Karl talk about? He said he was touring the area looking for real estate. What do you write? Scripts, mostly. Spike Lee is making a movie of my book, son of the south, right now.

Amy Roberts, mom, Greenwich, CT. Why is your baby crying? She’s quite a good picker of the genuine article. I think she’s worried he isn’t the real thing. In what way? Are you suggesting our Karl isn’t who he says he is? No, not at all! Are you a Chanel girl? Of course! I’m a a die-hard. And what about your baby? Oh, definitely will be! She’s got an older sister who already is one. This little one isn’t understanding high fashion just yet, though. Karl asked us to congratulate you on meeting him today. The pleasure was all mine. It was the highlight of my day. Are you going to put him on Instagram? Definitely. Hashtag almost real Chanel.

Catherine Gropper, playwright, East Hampton How did you know this was Karl Lagerfeld? Oh my god! His white hair is wonderful! What’s it like having him here in town? It’s exceptional. He has so much individuality and talent. He’s probably the biggest celebrity the Hamptons has ever seen, no? It’s his gifts that count, though, not the celebrity. Right. Do you wear a lot of his clothes? No, but my mom does. She’s going to be so excited when I tell her about this!

I have a picture by Steven Meisel of Daphne Guinness to show him. He’ll love that. You’ve got a great place. Thanks. We’ve been here since the ‘70s. We’re even older than the pizza parlor.

You’ve impersonated Karl before, right? I have. I played Karl to my friend’s Anna Wintour in a comedy variety show at La Mama. Another time I did him at Catch A Rising Star. Have you ever met him? No, but we’ve been in the same room before. I can’t remember where it was. It was a long time ago. How much Chanel is in your closet? Zero. I do have a Valentino shirt, though. Karl has a cat called Choupette. Do you have a cat? I do. Her name is Catsy Cline.

If the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, your neighbor must have hired Brazilianborn landscape architect Frederico Azevedo. But fear not: He can make your gardening dreams come true, too. The creative force behind Unlimited Earth Care takes an artful approach to outdoor chic, and has the contemporary collection to back it up. BY DENA SILVER PHOTOGRAPHY BY RACHEL BRENNECKE


how did a Brazilian end up running a landscaping business in the hamptons? I was doing the same thing in Brazil and then had a job opportunity in New York. After I arrived, another job in the Hamptons opened up, and so I came here. After that, the projects kept coming. I never had time to leave! You’ve got lots of competition out here. What’s special about Unlimited earth Care? We’re a business that’s devoted to nature and to creating beauty in a sustainable way. I choose specimens that are native to the area or have proven themselves able to adapt over long periods. Native plants need less water because they’re used to the soil. Which native plants do you use the most? There are shrubs, like clethra, viburnums, bayberry, and bearberry, and flowers, like lupin and hollyhock. We also have trees: dogwood, evergreens, cedar trees, and black pines. What’s the most overused landscaping technique in the hamptons? Hedges and trees for screening are obviously a very Hamptons-y thing, like the iconic hedges on Dune Road. I have my own take on hedges. Usually, they’re just one solid wall of evergreen or privet, but I like to mix it up. By diversifying the species, you create more depth and the illusion that the property goes on beyond the plants. What kinds of budget do you and your clients work with? It ranges from $7,000 to $200,000, and everything in between. The average is typically around $30,000. Do you have a favorite color scheme? aside from green, obviously. I love color, so it’s very important to mix in a lot of variation. In my professional life, I don’t have a color preference, but my personal favorite is lime green. When I was decorating my house, I made sure to put a touch of lime green in each room. there are quite a few chic Brazilians in the hamptons. is there a place out east that reminds you of home? I can always find a touch of Brazil at Sunset Beach. They like to play Brazilian music, and I love how it opens out right onto the beach and everyone’s wearing skimpy bikinis. During the summer I’m there at least twice a week. Your home is quite cozy. tell us about it! We call it Casa Meu and built it in 1996. I wanted it to be just a simple house so I built it in the traditional colonial style. I love Americana, and I wanted my home to reflect that. the interiors are fabulous. I did the whole thing myself, yes. I wanted to use as many recycled materials as possible, like the lamp made from recycled iron and the

table by Tom Fleming that’s created with driftwood from Montauk. The dining table is made of American Shaker wood planks with legs from an old veranda. All the mirrors are salvaged frames from old doors or windows, and the chairs in the kitchen are made from plastic CocaCola bottles. You’ve got quite the art collection as well. is there a theme? When it comes to art, I like to collect pieces from Paul Robinson, Mr. Brainwash, and a few others, but I collect wherever I go. For example, we were on our way to Harrods in London and we saw an art gallery filled with dEmo’s pieces. It happened to be the opening of his gallery, and so I bought a piece. Remember him? He was the one that put up the sculpture of David dressed in a Missoni suit in the Meatpacking District. We became friends and he’s even been out here to visit. that’s a great steven Klein photo. are you guys pals? We are. He also gave me a magazine cover for my birthday a while back that I had framed. Livia, my daughter, used to ride horses at Rose Hill Farm, and his house is right across the street. He used to hang out at the farm, which is how I met him. What about your yard? I use my home to experiment with techniques and different kinds of plants. We have a lot of deer, so it’s a great testing ground. I didn’t want to fence anything in; I wanted to keep everything open, and it’s useful to see which flowers and plants are deer-resistant. I made the grounds very structural with flowers and lawn ornaments, and I’m constantly adding and improving. Where do you hang out off-season? I have homes in South Beach, Brazil, and Manhattan. I like to move around. Do you design anything else, aside from landscapes? I have a line of pots in all different heights, up to 7 feet tall. They’re made of fiberglass and they’re lightweight, but they’re engineered to be stable so that they won’t fly away. The colors are all custom, so clients can choose what’s right for their environment. It was a side project at first, but they’ve gotten very popular. Now, when I visit hotels and other public places, I’m sometimes surprised to see that they use them as décor, like at the SLS Hotel in Miami. I also design a line of floating spheres made out of stainless steel to put in pools, and a line of torches that float in water. Right now, I’m in the middle of developing a design for a modular pool house. What is that? It’s like a cabana, but made in modular pieces, with a steel frame and flat slats of wood. The entire thing can be assembled by hand, as it’s only 8 feet by 8 feet. At the end of the year, you can take the whole thing apart and pack it away in storage. how do you still have time to garden? I make time. I’m completely obsessed.

Just Say

With the face of a modern angel, the inevitable comparisons to Kate Upton, and more industry buzz than a beekeepers convention, 19-year-old model Gigi Hadid is the official fashion superbabe of summer. Remember her name—she’s about to go global. BY EDDIE ROCHE PHOTOGRAPHY BY GILLES BENSIMON STYLED BY ANNA KATSANIS MAKEUP BY MISHA SHAHZADA HAIR BY GIANLUCA MANDELLI

You were great with Gilles today. Were you always that comfortable on set? I learned that probably in the last six months. The more I do it, the more comfortable I get. People who worked with me six months ago are like, ‘Oh my god! You’ve gotten so much better!’ I used to model for Baby Guess and Guess Kids when I was little, and my mom [Yolanda Foster, of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills] was a model, so I would travel with her on a lot of her shoots. She was also really into photography and documented my whole childhood. I was always in front of the camera. The last time we saw you, you were naked on a train in VMan. What was that shoot like? The story behind it was beautiful, actually. They wanted to put me on a train as a metaphor for my journey into adulthood. It wasn’t supposed to be provocative or anything. It was just about a natural acceptance of myself. That’s how I was thinking about it, anyway. I think a lot of girls are able to relate to me because I’m not two pounds soaking wet. I like that about myself. That shoot was a lot more to me than just taking my clothes off. It was about acceptance. Nudity is so frowned upon these days. If you look at sculptures from hundreds of years ago, everyone’s naked. It’s not a bad thing. We’re all naked at least twice a day.

Did you know that you were going to be naked? No, I thought I was going to be wearing lingerie. But I accepted the concept and tried to see the artistic side of it. What did your family think? My mom understands because she was in fashion, but she didn’t know about it before it came out. A lot of media and blogs attacked her for it, which kind of pissed me off. I’m 19 years old. It’s me and my manager guiding my career, not my mom. I don’t know if my dad’s seen it. My family doesn’t really talk about my work. They love me for who I am. You’ve been on quite a roll lately. You also shot with Bruce Weber for the cover of CR Fashion Book. How did that go? Bruce is just the kindest, most warm-hearted person ever. He reminds me of Santa Claus. I just want to hug him. It happened because [V editor in chief] Stephen Gan asked [IMG Models managing director] Ivan Bart if there was one girl he should meet with, and Ivan told him me! I went in to see Stephen and that same day he sent me straight to meet Carine Roitfeld. Were you nervous? I honestly didn’t take it seriously. I thought, I’m going to walk into Carine’s office, she’s going to laugh at me, and I’m going to leave. That

she wanted me in one of her shoots at all was just insane. The fact that they centered the shoot on me and put me on the cover was even more insane. You’re taking classes at The New School. What are you studying? Criminal psychology. When I tell people, they either say that they’re really surprised or that I’m in the perfect business for it, which is scary and a little sad. I’ve just always been interested in the topic. I’ve been watching crime shows like CSI since I was 3 years old. Your given name is Jelena. Why Gigi? According to my mom, I’m named after a little girl she met on a shoot in Capri. She and my grandma started calling me Gigi when I was in first grade. It just stuck. Are you familiar with the Vincente Minnelli musical? Everyone asks me that! Every time I say my name they’re like, “Have you seen the movie?” I haven’t yet, but I’ll let you know how it is. Oh, I’ve seen it. Leslie Caron is flawless. Does being compared to Kate Upton intimidate you at all? I wouldn’t say it intimidates me, exactly. It’s definitely a big pair of shoes to fill. I try not to think about it that way, though, because I want to make my own shoes. It’s an honor to even be mentioned in the same category as her. When was the last time you were in the Hamptons? Last Halloween we went pumpkin picking with one of my friends who’s from the area and we all went back to his house to carve them. I used to come out here as a kid. When you think of New York it’s always the city, but I actually connect more with the Hamptons. You appear on your mom’s show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills every now and again. Would you ever do your own reality show? I’m not interested in reality TV. I want to focus on modeling and get away from all that. I want to be known as a model, not a reality star. Do you feel you’ve been portrayed accurately on the show? I don’t think anyone on reality TV is portrayed accurately. Before anyone judges someone on a reality TV show, they should try to get to know them first. You’re big on social media. Tell us about “Ask Gigi.” It’s something I started on YouTube. I tell my followers on Twitter to tweet me questions using #AskGigiYoutube, and then when I have a spare second at work I get on my computer and try to answer as many of them as I can. I find that answering simple questions like “What’s your favorite ice cream?” is a great way for fans to really feel like they know me better. So which is it? Mint chocolate chip. How do you usually spend Memorial Day weekend? Before I moved to New York I always spent it on the beach in Malibu with my friends. We’d have a big barbecue and everyone would bring food, and we’d have a volleyball tournament. Not sure what I’ll get up to this year. Are you excited about your impending megafame? We’re hearing big things. I’ve grown up in and around the spotlight, and I’m starting to go into my own spotlight. I want to be successful, but the negative stuff does get to me sometimes, you know? I consider myself a pretty normal girl, so when people are on the Internet writing stuff about me, I’m like “Hello! There are whales to save! Go talk about something else!”

I’m not interested in reality TV. I want to focus on modeling.

Gilles Bensimon on

Uma Thurman

We shot this at Lazy Point, a great place in Amaganssett on the bay, it was years ago. She was very natural. She didn’t have any hair or makeup done for this photo. I love to work with her.

Fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon has spent the last 47 years documenting the planet’s most gorgeous creatures, carving out one of the industry’s most storied careers along the way. From his first gig at French Elle in 1967, to his years at the helm of American ELLE, to his late-career renaissance in the pages of Vogue Paris, it’s been one hell of a sexy ride. Here, the maestro (and a few of his favorite muses) look back at the magic they made together.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy: on Gilles Bensimon

You’ve done tons of shoots over the years. Do you remember this one? I do. It was in my family’s summer house. I played something on the piano and Gilles gave me his Audemars Piguet watch to wear. We were much younger then. Death was still a romantic idea. How would you describe Gilles? Very different from anybody else I’ve ever met in my life. I think he is a free man and he’s living in his own free world. Before being a photographer, Gilles is an artist, first and foremost. What was your first impression of him? He was born Feburary 29, which means his birthday only happens once every four years. Considering this fact, he must be about 15 or 16-years-old, which explains everything. He’s a wise eternal boy. How many times have you two worked together? He takes pictures of me all the time. His last picture of me was taken when we were having lunch. I don’t know if I can call that work, though.

Gilles Bensimon on Carla Bruni-Sarkozy

I love Carla. This was taken in her family’s house in Le Cap Nègre. She had just come in from swimming and wasn’t wearing any makeup. She sat down and started playing the piano and I started shooting. She’s a fantastic musician.


h

ow did you get started in the business? My plan was to do nothing when I was a kid. I wanted to be with my grandmother and spend time in Venice, the South of France, and Gstaad and never work. When I was a kid, the people when they got older would dress in dark blue or in grey and they would all go to work. At this time, Paris was not as fancy as it is now and all the buildings were grey. I thought getting old meant I had to be like these people and my grandmother had never worked in her life. The lifestyle she had was great. I was not the best student. I was probably also dyslexic. I went to art school…after going to many schools, but I got lucky when I was very young and started working for French ELLE. How did you begin working at French ELLE? I did lots of little jobs. It was a weekly, so they always had something to do. I would shoot two pages or four pages for each issue, but at this time there were no assistants. Even the models didn’t have hair and makeup. Sometimes they even brought their own shoes. I stayed there and worked for some other magazines and did many things. I was shooting a lot of ad campaigns too. What was next? I moved to New York and they were starting American ELLE. Regis [Pagniez] contacted me and asked me to work with him and I agreed. We lived in the same building for years and we worked together so much. I had great luck working with Regis. He was not only the director of the magazine, but he was also the art director, which was not very common. We worked very well together for many years. We would have breakfast together, lunch together, and dinner together. I don’t think my ex-wife Elle Macpherson accepted that very well. I think it was painful for her that we never went out or did anything fun. What was it like trying to establish ELLE in the U.S.? We were successful from the first issue. That’s why it was very frightening at many points, because we were so successful and there was nobody at the magazine. There was no fashion editor, really, or that many people to work with. So we got in the habit of doing everything ourselves. I’m not sure if it was politically correct, business-wise, but it was working very well. I’m not so sure people liked us that much. It was a French magazine doing so well in America. Also, the other magazines began to have to change because of us, even the people of Condé Nast, because we cared so much about the paper, the printing, and the cover. I don’t think we were very welcome. Now it’s funny, because everyone says, “It was an iconic magazine. It was so great.” But during that time, they never told us that. Even the people from The New York Times were not that nice to us. At what point did you become the creative director? After the magazine began to grow, Regis retired and I became the creative director and after that I became the editorial director. How long did you work with Regis Pagniez before you took over? It was probably about 15 years. I must say Regis did the biggest part with me. When he wasn’t there anymore I found myself very lonely at many points, because we used to talk about everything and we would always agree on the best thing. When you’re by yourself, you realize that it’s not that easy. It was not a great time for me, I must say. What was the reaction when you became editorial director? People were not so happy, because they said that I’m not an editor, I’m not an American, and I’m not a woman. And I was by myself, but I found an art director and I tried to put together a fashion team, but it was not easy. I’m not sure I was really capable to do it. I was successful, but I would not do it again. Why do you think you weren’t capable? I thought everyone was telling me the truth, but they weren’t. Everybody was ambitious and everybody wanted to get something. I probably was not ambitious enough. They also thought I was arrogant, and I was arrogant, but the magazine was doing well and we survived. But it was not a happy ending. Do you remember the first cover you ever did for American ELLE? It was Yasmin Le Bon for the September issue in 1985. After Yasmin, it was Elle Macpherson. But the cover was so different from everything else that was being done. The funny thing is that no one even copied us at first, because they were so unsure about it. During this time, it was always a close up of a blonde smiling and sometimes the same girl would get five covers in a row. The great era of Harper’s Bazaar was gone at the time. Vogue was very basic, but they changed after. Anna Wintour made a big difference. You’ve shot more covers than any other photographer. What is the essence of

the “it” factor with models? I recently worked with Karlie Kloss and with a girl like that it’s always about the decision they made to work hard. It’s about the amount of work they are capable of giving you. It’s not just about the look. They are much more involved in the process of shooting. For example, I was with Karlie in the mountains in France and there were a lot of pictures to be done and she had never skied before. But we did 18 great pictures working all day, because she never gave up and it was a very demanding shoot. Then I shot Abbey Lee Kershaw for Australian Vogue for their April issue and she’s not a great model, she’s actually known for being an actress. There’s a lot of absolutely great looking girls that never do anything. It’s about talent, simply put. Can you tell before you shoot someone if they’ll have that “it” factor? Not until I shoot them. We did a story last year with Edita, another model I love, on a boat for French Vogue and everybody was sick. In three hours, we did fantastic shots and everyone was laid down. We had so much success with that shoot and a lot of people copied that story. She was the right girl at the right time and she worked very, very hard. It was fantastic. Who do you love working for right now? French Vogue. It’s amazing, because I never thought I would work for Vogue, because I was so much of an ELLE person. But the people of ELLE magazine don’t like me that much for many reasons. It’s like an ex-wife. Did you start working for the international editions of Vogue right after ELLE? No, things were very difficult for a time. I was punished. People thought I had too much power at ELLE and they are perhaps right. The other day I was talking with an editor of a magazine and we were talking about somebody who is shooting everything for this magazine and the editor said that it is too much power for this person and I said to this woman, “Probably, I had too much power when I was at ELLE.” I did all the covers, because I was convinced I was the only one capable to do the right cover. I’m not sure I was right. During that conversation with this editor it was the first time that I agreed about that. You discover things about yourself as time passes. How do you think the business has changed for you? Now people are afraid of the internet, but I think magazines will still exist. They will have to change, obviously. Advertisers have a lot more power now. ELLE was a great magazine, because it had a history of great fashion directors. It was like a school. That doesn’t exist anymore. At Vogue, obviously it still exists. Anna Wintour is a great example. I never worked with Anna, so that’s why it is easy to say that, but she is the one capable to control the fashion, style, opinion, and the whole magazine. Even if people don’t like her, you must have a lot of respect for her. Do you think American publishing is different from European publishing? Not really. But if you put all of the covers together right now they would all look the same. They follow the same people and the same ideas. Before, you used to be able to recognize a magazine by its cover. Vogue was really Vogue, ELLE was really ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar was really Harper’s Bazaar, every magazine was different. Glamour was different, Mademoiselle was different. What are your hobbies outside of work? I love to read. I have so many books I don’t have space anymore. I also love to draw. I just do drawings for myself. It takes me about two weeks to do each drawing. I like to surf, but I’m not that good. Laird Hamilton made me a surfboard. I also love to travel. I just arrived in New York from Paris and tomorrow I go to Greece. It’s for work, but I love it. I have to work, because I divorced American style. You could call it Chapter 11, but my cousin says it’s really my Chapter 12! What is your favorite place you’ve ever shot? The next one.

You used to be able to recognize a magazine by its cover. Vogue was really Vogue, ELLE was really ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar was really Harper’s Bazaar, and every magazine was different. Glamour was different, Mademoiselle was different.

Gilles Bensimon on

Uma Thurman

We shot this in a studio and that was her dog. When she first started she was a model and her booker, who was the same booker for Elle Macpherson, would call me and say, “Uma, Uma, Uma, Uma!” He even brought her to my apartment with her mother.

I love this one. It was in Tahiti, and there was a surf competition going on at the time. The Tahitian guys can be very aggressive. They’re big Pacific guys and when they get drunk they go and fight with everybody. We had bodyguards, but Adriana was so cool about it. Miss Tahiti organized the whole trip for us, so it was really easy to shoot. Everyone knows her there, so when the Tahitian guys got aggressive about Adriana, she would tell them to stop and everyone would respect her.

Gilles Bensimon on

gisele Bündchen

Gisele was a great story, because we shot in Brazil and I told her to invite one of her many sisters. I told her, ‘We are on vacation. Just enjoy the house and the beach and we’ll shoot when we feel like it.’ As you can see, there’s not that much hair or makeup. She enjoyed the shooting part of the trip more, because it didn’t feel like work.

on Gilles Bensimon I’ve known Gilles since I was 16-years old, and I’m blessed to still be working with him 28 years later. He’s always been so supportive of diversity in the industry and the fashion world has benefited from his influence.

Gilles Bensimon on Naomi Campbell I adore Naomi. She’s a great person. People talk badly about her sometimes, but I’ve never seen her act like that and I’ve known her since she was a teenager. I love this picture, because she doesn’t look like the classic Naomi we know. I really like the face she’s making.

Christy Turlington Burns

She’s cool. She’s obviously one of the most beautiful girls in the world; a perfect mixture between British and Latin. She’s so natural and lovely.


Gilles Bensimon on Liv Tyler

Oh, I loved this image. We found the little coin with the image of her dad [Steven Tyler] and asked her to pose like that. I like Liv a lot. I just saw her last year. She did really well, because you know it’s not easy being the daughter of someone so famous.

liv Tyler

on Gilles Bensimon

Gilles is one of my favorite photographers ever. I absolutely love the experience of shooting with him and admire and respect both him and his work tremendously. What he created with ELLE throughout the ’80s and ’90s was instantly iconic and I reference those images constantly. What an amazing moment in time!

Gilles Bensimon on

Salma hayek

The first time I photographed her she said, ‘Do you remember when we met? We had lunch in Milan together!’ We talked and I asked her what she was doing and she said, ‘I’m an actress. I’m not too sure America will be good for me. I’m quite well-known for my TV series in Mexico, but I don’t think I’ll make it in America.’ I’m a witch—I’m psychic—so I read her fortune in a coffee cup and she asked me what I saw, and I said, ‘I see success and I see a blackbird…no, not a blackbird, a bat.’ She was later cast in From Dusk Til Dawn with plenty of bats and vampires, and became very successful. She’s absolutely insanely photogenic, has great character, and is so strong of opinion. The top she wore in this photo was Emanuel Ungaro Couture. I don’t know if many women could wear that, but she has a killer body.

heidi klum on Gilles Bensimon and Her Summer Plans

Do you remember this photo? I do. It was shot in Cabo San Lucas many, many years ago. It’s funny, because a lot of people wanted to copy my hair-do after that. It was a big thing with the bangs and the platinum blonde, which was really Gilles’ idea. He was like, ‘I want it platinum, platinum, platinum, and I want to cut it with the ’60s bang!’ And he was right. He wanted to change up my look and make me a little more edgy. So many people come up to me, even now, and say, ‘Wow! That was a real moment!’ Where you scared at the time? I wasn’t scared, because I’m a Gemini and I’m also someone who’s a little bit fearless when it comes to those kinds of things. I was taking his lead. He said, ‘Let’s create a cover that people won’t forget.’ And we did! I did a lot of ELLE shoots with him, and he always made me look natural but sexy at the same time. It wasn’t one of those shoots where you’re in the studio and they completely change you into a person that doesn’t look like you. He always makes you look like you, but better. How would you describe him as a person? He’s a lot fun to shoot with. He has the music going, he’s laughing, and he’s joking around with everyone. He makes you feel beautiful. He was always quite tough on his assistants and other people, but he was always lovely to the ladies. He pushes you and wants the best for you. What are you up to this summer? I’m going to be in New York for three months, because I’m shooting two shows: the 13th season of Project Runway, and then I go straight into America’s Got Talent (May 27 on NBC!). Will we be seeing you in the Hamptons this summer? I’m definitely going out there for Memorial Day weekend. We’ll go to Splish Splash. Have you heard of it? It’s a waterpark in Riverhead. You go on these inner tubes and then it drops you sometimes ten feet down. It’s really scary but my kids love it. It’s about the only time I ever wear a one-piece bathing suit.

FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M

Heidi is not only good looking, she’s very smart. She has reinvented herself over and over. At first she was modeling in Miami and then she went on to do Victoria’s Secret, which wasn’t always the best start for a girl, because it’s not very fashion. I think that’s why some fashion editors didn’t think she was the right girl at the time. But I did. We cut her bangs for this photo, which was something new for her. I loved the idea of the slightly uneven bangs and her hair very blonde. It’s not just about her being so sexy. She’s really got so much more.


Gilles Bensimon on Angela Lindvall

We were the first ones to find her. Angela’s really beautiful and very natural. She’s very involved with the environment, too. You could say she’s kind of a hippie.

angela lindvall on Gilles Bensimon

Do you remember when this photo was taken and what it was for? The cover of American ELLE in 2001. We were at Gilles house in the Hamptons. It was a very memorable shoot, because I was newly pregnant with my first son. How would you describe Gilles? He’s a dynamic person with a certain playfulness and a huge amount of energy. He has a kind soul and a creative vision of life. He’s very positive and happy and smiling, but not fake. He does his own thing and doesn’t take any BS! What does Gilles bring out in you as a model? I love his approach and honesty. He will tell you what is working and what isn’t in a matter-of-fact kind of way. He has a lot of fun on his sets. I feel very comfortable and free to express myself in front of him. He brings out my inner spirit as a woman. I always call him ‘Papa Gilles’ because he was on the first big job I ever had. He really got behind me, and booked me numerous times for ELLE. He holds a special place in my heart. What are you up to these days? I’m enjoying my life more than ever. I live on a small homestead outside of L.A. with my two boys, raise chickens, and grow vegetables. I’m on a continuous journey of self-growth and reflection.

FINE CHINA

Model China Machado was a muse for Richard Avedon and the first non-Caucasian cover model for Harper’s Bazaar. Now 84, she still lands the occasional modeling gig, but is happiest laughing with friends in her rose garden. The Daily Summer swung by her year-round Sag Harbor abode to take a leisurely stroll down memory lane. BY EDDIE ROCHE PHOTOGRAPHY GIORGIO NIRO FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M


How long have you been coming out to the Hamptons? Since 1965. I rented for several years, and then bought in 1971—the Watermill house. It was five-and-a-half acres with a 1776 house. I bought nine properties out here! What about this house? This was a mess when I first bought it twenty years ago. It had tiny windows, a sliding door, and that was it. It was a shack. We remodeled it over the years. What could I do wrong with it? It was so awful to begin with. Why did you decide to settle in Sag Harbor? It’s such a beautiful little town. All the Europeans love it more than any place else because it has character. There are so many landmarked and beautiful houses. After you retired from fashion, you started an unusual project in the area. What was it? I had a country store here called Country Bazaar. We sold gourmet food, children’s clothes, toys, and gifts. It was fun for a while, but you couldn’t get anybody to work! It ruined my social life. Did the customers know who you were? Well, I didn’t advertise it. I was cutting ham and stuff like that. Jean Vanderbilt came in once, who I hadn’t seen in years. We looked at each other and we sort of began our friendship again. You host an event at your house every year called the ‘Party of the Roses.’ How did it start? It started because everybody said, ‘Oh my god you have such beautiful roses. Can I come and see them?’ Last year, we had 110 people, and I cooked everything. We build a dance floor that becomes a stage and have all of our friends that can sing or dance do something. It’s much more fun to see someone you know performing than some unknown. How did you get started in the modeling business? It’s an unbelievable story of me leaving to South America, running away with a bullfighter, and then going to Paris, and being discovered by Balenciaga’s woman who said, ‘Do you want to be a model?’ I said, ‘What’s a model?’ Then I became Givenchy’s top model and blah, blah, blah, and so on. You and Richard Avedon are so synonymous with each other. When did you two meet? Dick Avedon was the first person to photograph me. Because it was Dick, and because I was the first non-Caucasian in Bazaar, it made a big splash. Everyone knew me all of a sudden. Did Avedon ever come out here? He had a house in Montauk and very often he’d stop by, have lunch with us, and on his way back have dinner. I had a very close friendship with Dick for 50 years. What did he teach you? Dick had this magic. He just took the picture when he thought it was right. He already had the picture in his head before he took it. He always said to me that I brought something completely different to a picture. That’s why he photographed me so much. He made you feel comfortable in front of a camera and made you

All the Europeans love [Sag harbor] more than any place else because it has character.

feel beautiful, so you’d do anything—turn your head, put your nose there, whatever it was, you did it. He gave you a kind of confidence. Do you have any tips for the less photogenic? It helps if you know how to use light. It helps if you know your good features and your bad. It helps if you’re comfortable. If you’re uncomfortable, it shows. Everybody’s a photographer now. Do you ever take selfies? I can’t stand to be photographed. Why the hell am I going to be photographed when I was already photographed by the greatest there ever was? There are all these stupid pictures of people who go on holiday or at parties—suddenly someone’s taking your picture in the middle of a conversation, or they want you to pose with them. You do it, but God, such a bore! We saw quite a few paintings inside. Are any of them yours? Everything. The day after Dick died I started painting. I felt so upset. I wanted to think of something else besides the sadness of his passing. It helped me get through it, because I really felt bad that he was gone. How would you describe the décor of the house? Eclectic, to say the least. How many years have you and your husband Riccardo Rosa [retired furniture exporter] been married now? Ten years, but we’ve been together for 36 years. What took you so long? We wanted to be sure. You’ve used that joke before, but it’s a good one! It’s true! I didn’t know if I wanted to get married again, but he was committed the minute he met me. We like the same things. We like the same people. We love to travel. We both like to cook. I can’t fight with him. You’re in amazing shape. Any health tips? I’ve never had a facelift. I don’t use any expensive creams. I use cold cream to take off my makeup, and I wash my face with soap. That’s about it. Do you still have a glass of wine now and then? I drink vodka only, unless the wine is fantastic. How do you like your drinks? Just ice. Vodka on the rocks? Hey, if you’re going to do it…[laughs] You laugh a lot. I do. My mother’s family was always laughing. There were five sisters and one sister would start laughing and then another would start laughing, without even knowing why, and then all five sisters would be hysterically laughing. What we call it is fou rire, which is a French word for crazy laughter. That sort of releases you. My daughter and I inherited it. I can get into laughter like you wouldn’t believe. It’s just impossible! I just think laughter brings everyone together. If you can make someone laugh it’s great. Everything else becomes secondary. gEttY imAgES

RIDING with

RAMY

A lot of fashion designers are into SoulCycle, but few are as committed as Ramy Sharp, who discovered spinning eight years ago and has been an addict ever since. Her new six-piece mini collection of post-workout wear will be available at select SoulCycle studios and on RamyBrook. com starting May 24, and includes dresses, shorts, tops, and pants to wear after your ride. We caught up with Sharp to watch her wheels turn. By PAIGE REDDINGER

PHotoGRAPHy By StEfANIA CuRto FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M

How did the collaboration come about? I always talk to Elizabeth [Cutler] and Julie [Rice], the owners, because they’re amazing. Every step they make, every PR move, every instructor they hire, every studio they open, they’re always striving to do better and be better. They never forget their client and their audience. It’s about getting a better experience for the rider. They’ve grown this business tremendously over the years. We have this friendship and they knew me before I started my company. I started in 2010 and they started in 2006. They were really supportive and really happy to see me start this business. Anything they could do to help me grow, it came naturally to them and it came out of the goodness of their hearts. It’s always interesting for me to talk to them and learn from them and get their advice. Julie was the


It seemed so obvious to me to develop something casual, cool, sexy, and easy.

one that came to me. They’ve seen how I’ve dressed for years and how I dress when I leave spinning. She was like, “Let’s do something together” and I said “Great!” It’s been a true collaboration, from the styles, to the colors, to where we place the skulls and the wheels. It’s been a true joint venture. It’s been amazing. Is casual or post-workout wear something we’ll be seeing permanently from your brand? It wasn’t meant to be for actually working out. It was more of a to-and-from collection—to the gym and from the gym. One day my brand will include everything from shoes to perfume and everything in between, which is my ready-to-wear, my casual line,

and workout wear. My plan is to be a full lifestyle brand. Do you think workout or post-workout clothing is a big trend? I think it’s a huge category, because a lot of people spend most of the day in that clothing. But you still want to look good and dress well. It’s important that whatever you put on your body, you have that feeling. Were some of the pieces you designed based on things you were already wearing? One hundred percent. I grab things that are easy and can roll up in my bag and not wrinkle. The clothing that I designed is meant to do that. The pants, the tops, the dresses—they’re all easy pieces you can roll up in your bag, and when you take it out, it still looks good and feels good. Some of it looks like it can be used as beachwear. Was that intentional? Absolutely, it could double for the beach! It’s very flexible. You can wear it to the beach, you can wear it to go grab coffee, you can wear it to do your errands, you can wear it when you pick your kid up from camp, or you can wear it when you’re going food shopping. The beauty of it is you’re wearing clothes that make you feel good. How many times a week do you go to SoulCycle? On average, five days a week. I love it. If I have the time I’ll definitely double up on classes. What about when you’re in the Hamptons? It’s the same. SoulCycle for me has become a part of my day. I like to start my day with spin class. What time do you go in the morning? In New York, I go at 8:30. In the Hamptons, it depends. Most likely, it’s a 9:30 class. Sometimes I’ll do a 9:30 class and then a 10:30 class. I like to sleep a little longer on the weekends. What location do you normally go to? I generally go to the West 77th, 83rd Street, and Tribeca locations. In the Hamptons, I go to Bridgehampton because that’s where I live. I go to East Hampton often, too. Which locations will carry the collection? The collection starts at $98 and goes to $155 and will be sold at Watermill, East Hampton, and Bridgehampton. Watermill’s one of their newer locations. In the city, it’s going to be sold on East 83rd and it will be available on RamyBrook.com. It will also be sold at SoulCycle locations in Roslyn, Short Hills, and Greenwich. How did you find out about SoulCycle? I was working out at another spinning studio in the Hamptons called The Zone, which doesn’t exist anymore. It was very big at the time about 10 years ago. I met Elizabeth and I heard that these girls were starting a new studio in New York City. There wasn’t anything like that in New York at the time. There was The Zone in the Hamptons and there wasn’t even a Zone in New York City. It was exciting that they were opening up a spinning studio. Before that you would spin at an Equinox or a gym. What was your first spin at SoulCycle like? The first studio they opened was on West 72nd street. It was a building and it was in the back of a lobby. There were like 40 bikes. I knew two of the instructors at the time. One came from L.A., Stacey, and then there was another instructor I knew from the world of spinning. The first class was very inspirational. It was dark and they lit candles. The music was amazing and still is amazing. Then the words they would say while you were on the bike made the workout appealing and enjoyable. Are you going to try to get the instructors to wear your clothing? A lot of the clothing is named after the instructors.

The ones that have a name, I’m going to make sure that they wear it. Stacey, Janet, Cole, Charlie, and Debbie all have pieces named after them, because I do a lot of their classes. The crop pants are named after co-founder Julie Rice. Do you think SoulCycle has become a fashion hub? It’s fun to watch how the girls come to spin in a cute beanie hat and a cute sweatshirt. They’ll dress it up with a scarf and a vest. It’s a stylish and good looking crowd. How would you describe the lifestyle of SoulCycle? It’s become a family for many people. We want to socialize and we want to go out. It’s become a part of my growing social life. When you come up with new concepts, do you consult your friends? I developed this line, because it seemed so natural to do. It seemed so obvious to me to develop something so casual, cool, sexy, and easy. When I developed it, it was hanging in my showroom and my friends saw it and they were like, “We want one of everything!” How would you describe the aesthetic of the collection? It’s the same as my ready-to-wear line. I always say that my clothes are a solution for people like me, who don’t know what to wear. I’m like, “I have these jeans, but I don’t know what to wear on top!” The SoulCycle collaboration fulfills that need, but at a casual level. It really is that solution, because I know I’m going to the Golden Pear after I work out and I don’t want to wear my workout clothes. My handbags are going to do the same thing. They’re priced at a decent, contemporary price point. You can buy that blue suede bag and not feel that it’s your one bag for the season. It’s a solution to wear something fun. I consider my brand a solution for many people.

therapy Confessions of a Hamptons trainer

FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M


Last summer, we asked a put-upon nanny, a hustling cater waiter, and a desperate Hamptons hausfrau to anonymously dish about their lives on the East End. In the latest installment of our ongoing series, we’re passing the conch to a gossipy personal trainer. Get pumped! AS TOLD TO EDDIE ROCHE In the off-season, you train clients in Manhattan. What’s different about training clients in the Hamptons? They’re similar in a lot of ways, but the summer people have even less respect for my time. Some people are serious about getting fit, but others just want to have you on standby if they feel like working out. That’s why I always charge for 20 sessions upfront. Do the sessions ever go unused? All the time! I sometimes show up at peoples’ homes for sessions and have to go through butlers and housekeepers. I’ll wait for 30 minutes and some lady will come and say, ‘I’m sorry, but she isn’t able to meet today.’ The only time I’ve ever fired clients is in the Hamptons. Because they were rude? Yeah. They act like the world revolves around them and their problems are bigger than anybody else’s. Even if they’re late, which costs me money, they expect service with a smile. Some were also just crazy, but that happens in the city, too. I had one woman who asked me if I would call her “mommy.” Did you? No. More stories like that, please! OK, there was one guy who I was on a run with and he didn’t feel like running back to his house, so he had me hitchhike a ride home. I eventually managed to flag down a van and ended up bouncing around in the back while he was in the front. I was being paid, but it’s humiliating. Another time, with the same guy, we went for a long run and he had a stomach problem and made me knock on doors so he could use the bathroom. I knocked on one door and it was a house full of nuns, swear to God. He told me after that he clogged up their toilet. The guy was a complete disaster. Not bad, not bad. What else? I had another client who had me come to his house and when I pulled up he was getting into his car. He said he’d be right back, but I followed him to see where he was going. I followed him to a nail salon down the street. He had a manicure appointment! I went in and said, “We have a session right now,” and he told me to go back to his house. I was like, You know what? I can’t do this anymore. We broke up in a nail salon. We ended up working things out a few years later. Do you charge more in the Hamptons? Oh, yeah. I’m fairly reasonable with my prices, but

you’ve got gas prices to consider. People out here know that prices get jacked up, but they feel like it’s already extortion, so you can’t overdo it too much. How much can a trainer pull in a week? In the summer, between $4,000 and $10,000 if they know what they’re doing. The weekends are the busiest. You’re working yourself to the bone because you only have 8 weeks to do it. If this place had warm weather all year long, I’d move to the Hamptons and love my life. It would be heaven on earth, because I could work from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. without a break. The hardest part is getting from one appointment to the next. You used to train Bianca Jagger. Any good stories? For her I did massage and stretch work. She would always call me “darling.” “Darling, harder! Darling, softer!” She had this soft quality in her voice and was very affectionate. One time we were walking to the beach after a cardio workout because she wanted to take a dip in the ocean. The waves were strong and knocked her over. I get into the water and her top was off. She’s European [Nicaraguan, actually.—ed] so she didn’t care about the top, but I didn’t know if I could look at her or not. And you’ve been on Barry Diller’s yacht, too? With a friend for a party. I didn’t know who he was and asked him if he was the captain of the ship. He thought that was pretty funny. Have you ever had a client hit on you? Of course. Men and women. How did they go about it? A few have flat out asked me on a date, but I’ve never crossed that line. It’s flattering for successful and worldly people to be, not hitting on me, necessarily, but showing interest. Most people are afraid of doing anything more than that because they don’t want a sexual harassment case on their hands. Does it make it uncomfortable afterwards? You have to play along a bit. You’re a fantasy and you just play it out and play it out, but eventually the fantasy goes away and a friendship develops. A new fantasy pops into their heads. I try to connect with each of my clients on a friendship level and find out what their story is. If it gets too weird, I might suggest a group session. What’s the most frustrating part of your job? Getting hit on is actually the easiest part. In the Hamptons, there’s a big temptation with food for my clients. They’re all on vacation, and drinking and eating more than they usually would. Clients put on weight they don’t really have to, and have to work extra hard to lose it. Then again, that does keep me in business.

We went for a long run and he had a stomach problem and made me knock on doors so he could use the bathroom. I knocked on one door and it was a house full of nuns, swear to God.

SUN?

WHAT UP,

He’s reclusive and temperamental, but we couldn’t live without him. In a rare interview, The Daily Summer sits down with The Sun to learn what makes his world go round. BY EDDIE ROCHE

We haven’t seen much of you lately. Is everything alright? No, it’s not alright. It was a really difficult spring for me. I felt like I was spinning out of control and needed to take some time for myself, which pissed a lot of people off. Now everyone’s saying I’m a has-been, a burnout. That’s not true, Sun! It’s not? Then why does Mother Earth think she can throw shade like she’s the center of the universe? I might disappear sometimes, but she’s a complete mess. I shouldn’t even be telling you this, but we’ve been fighting constantly. She thinks she’s the boss of me, not the other way around. She thinks everything revolves around her! Wow, you sound pretty heated. Ha, very funny. Never heard that one before! How should I feel after the year I’ve had? I started off on a high note, got my SAG card, and then almost all my scenes got cut from “Gravity.” And don’t get me started on climate change. People used to worship me, now all of a sudden I’m the source of all their problems? How would that make you feel? Probably not very good. But back up a second. What was it like to work with George Clooney? You’re kidding me with this, right? How do you think it was? The guy spent our entire time onscreen together trying to outshine me. He thinks he’s God. For most of human history I actually was God, and believe me, George Clooney’s no God. He’ll learn, though. The comedown’s no picnic. How long have you been feeling this way? I don’t know. October maybe? Seasonal affective disorder socked me harder than usual, I guess. It threw me in a rut, and I’m just getting out. Everybody’s so obsessed with stars these days, it’s tacky.

But we heard you’re staging a big comeback this summer! We’ll see how I feel. I can’t confirm or deny anything, but let’s just say the heat is on. Good one! Not really. Anything we can do to hasten your return to the Hamptons? I’m a billion years old. I’ll get out there eventually. Eventually? This doesn’t have anything to do with the Kardashians, does it? Wasn’t the Vogue cover punishment enough? What can we do to make you feel more welcome? You can start by appreciating what I do. Do you know how long you’d last if I ever went away for good? Within a week, the average temperature would dip below zero, and after a year, you’re talking -100. Try topping up your base tan in that! But still, it’s take, take, take with you people. Are solar eclipses your least favorite day on the calendar? What kind of question is that? What’s your favorite day of the week? Seriously, just stop. One more and this interview is over. What other planets do you get along with? Earth and I have always gotten on, but we’re going through a rough patch these days. I still think Mars is adorable, but we’ve always been a little distant. What’s your favorite Hamptons spot? It’s kind of a cliché, but the rosé at the Wölffer Estate lives up to the hype. We hope to see more of you! Don’t worry too much about it. I’ve been coming out here since the Big Bang.

She thinks she’s the boss of me, not the other way around. She thinks everything revolves around her!
