Emma Stone, Mila Kunis

Emma Stone is definitely having a moment. The actress appeared on Vanity Fair’s August cover, and has three big movies out this summer. And this week, the 22-year-old worked the red carpet—and designer dresses—at the premieres of two of those flicks.

At Monday’s Friends With Benefits premiere, Stone rocked a red and pink Giambattista Valli, and went with black Tom Ford for Crazy, Stupid, Love on Tuesday. She says it’s been fun choosing red carpet looks for all her promotional activities, and revealed her secret weapon: “I have an incredible stylist named Petra Flannery, she just kills it. So it’s all her,” Stone said.

Her movie The Help is out next month, and Stone is trying to remain grounded amidst all the hoopla. “I’m just trying to remind myself to stay in the moment, and hang out with my family and friends a lot, which is really nice and really helps,” she said, adding that she brought her family along to the premieres. “This [red carpet glamour] is all a lot of fun, but at the end of the day I get to hang out with my family and friends, so that makes me pretty happy.”

Another perk for the budding star: In both of these romantic comedies she gets to work with some very handsome leading men. Justin Timberlake stars in FWB and Stone plays Ryan Gosling’s love interest in Crazy, Stupid, Love.

“My son Carlton is in a group show called 'Nose Job’ at the Eric Firestone Gallery in East Hampton,” said Beth De Woody. “I’ll send you an email, please come.”

The invitation didn't disappoint. It featured Andy Warhol’s “Before and After”, but if you were to say Warhol’s Nose Job, any fan of Andy's would know what you were talking about.

“I didn’t read the invitation that carefully, and I thought these were all going to be takeoffs on Andy Warhol’s Nose Job,” said Bob Colacello.

Not a bad idea for a show, Bob! However, the noses in this case were discarded aircraft and missile nose cones from airplane graveyards, recycled and turned into art by the likes of Richard Prince, Kenny Scharf, Peter Dayton, Juan James (aka Carlton de Woody and Sebastian Errazuriz), and they were spectacular.

Donna Karan daughter Gaby Karan

The beloved Italian restaurant in Sag Harbor, Tutto Il Giorno, has opened an equally delicious outpost in Southampton. Co-owned by Gaby Karan de Felice, it was the perfect place for a lunch hosted by Donna Karan to discuss her philosophy on many, many things, and to view her Urban Zen collection.

In the space of two and a half hours, Dayssi Kanavos, Gabrielle Bacon, Lise Evans, Julie Frist, and a host of high profile, philanthropic women meditated, lunched on delicious burrata, bass, and gnocchi, and learned about ovarian cancer, lung cancer, AIDS, and the crisis in Haiti. And Karan enthusiastically asked for everyone's help.

"Work is not work, it's love, it's passion," said Karan. An advocate of alternative therapies as part of an overall healing program, Karan spoke of bringing yoga, reiki, and meditation into hospitals, because "it's not what we're wearing on the outside, it's what we're wearing on the inside," she explained.

Diane von Furstenberg lifted New York’s party scene out of the summer doldrums by hosting two star-studded evenings in one week.

On Monday, DVF hosted a screening of the Weinstein Company’s “Sarah’s Key,” about a journalist whose life is altered by a story she uncovers after moving to Paris. The nomadic Von Furstenberg said that her travels have always had a profound effect. “I’ve written in my diary all my life, and whenever I open a page, it’s always a turning point. So it looks like all I have done is turning.”

Rachel Roy recently had a new experience in the City of Light. “I went to Paris just a few weeks ago with no purpose other than to walk, shop, eat, and to be inspired,” the designer said. She had no plans or itinerary, and spent time in the city alone. “To just walk the streets alone was important; just to observe a very chic culture, why do they do what they do, why do they choose what they choose? Why do I like it?” Roy says it worked, and promises that her new collection will be very chic!

At dinner at Osteria Del Circo following the screening, Malin Akerman gushed about her Rock of Ages costumes. “It’s a little bit ridiculous and fantastically '80s,” she said. “They did a great job, a little bit of the Sharon Stone hairdo from Total Recall,” she laughed. Courtney Love, Regis Philbin, Nanette Lepore, and Christiane Amanpour were among the guests.

On Wednesday, DVF joined Ivanka Trump Jewelry in hosting the Cinema Society screening of Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. Wendi (Mrs. Rupert) Murdoch co-produced the movie, and some high-profile Aussies, including Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, came to support. Hugh Jackman, who appears in the film, was performing in Toronto, but his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness represented at the screening. “It’s a chick’s flick, it’s about girlfriends, and so we’re here supporting our girlfriend Wendi,” Furness said.
