Several Hamptons designers showed at New York Fashion Week. Vera Wang presented a water-influenced collection that included sophisticated gowns, neoprene pieces and shift dresses. Calvin Klein’s collection featured muted hues with lively citron splashes, and asymmetrical crescent hemlines on dresses and coats. Donna Karan’s line emphasized strength, and offered shoulder pads, tightly belted waists and long hemlines. One of Karan’s fans, White House social secretary Desiree Rogers, scored a prime show seat next to Vogue’s Anna Wintour. * * * New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine has put his oceanfront Sagaponack estate on the summer rental market. The 6,200-square-foot, six-bedroom home sits on six acres with a heated gunite pool, a Har-tru tennis court and more than 500 feet of ocean frontage along Gibson Beach. Asking price? $900,000. * * * Southampton’s Paris Hilton recently celebrated her 28th birthday with a party at Butter in New York City.
