Fashion Week Survival Tips and Gossip from Last Big Hamptons Weekend from Brad Boles

A farewell to a big summer! A clambake, a game of chicken and a full disco party and season four of Bravo’s hit show “The Real Housewives of New York City”There’s not a chance you could get better then Labor Day in the Hamptons. The weekend started with a glorious sunset clambake at the divine ocean-front home of my very own Lauren Arpel and fifteen perfect summer friends. I was in a panic as to how to make a bonfire on the beach though. But, have no fear, I called my metrosexual friend Rob Seigel and sure enough you straight guys are good for something. He showed up with wood and his Boy Scout skills to light up the sky. We enjoyed everything from lobster to fresh corn and s’mores. originalAll the pretty ladies… The next night I was invited to a very chic dinner in Amaganset. I can’t mention the name of one of guests, a supermodel, but you all know her. After she bounced back from a huge scandal, she’s had more fashion campaigns then in her previous incarnation. The evening ended up rather bare: all naked in the pool playing chicken. Needless to say her body is still flawless. I then went to a fabulous birthday party for Emma Snowden Jones, my new love, which may prove to be a problem in Season 4 of “The Real Housewives of New York City”…just kidding Jill! Jill Zarin will always be my love and one of Bravo’s number one housewives. Happy birthday Emma! Here’s to a great Autumn filled with champagne and a new, perfectly dressed Red Carpet Goddess.On Sunday I attended a great Hamptons disco party in an all white modern house in Bridgehampton where I’m doing the interiors. It turned out to be a great way to test the flow of furniture placement with over a hundred guests, a DJ, two stations, as well as a full sushi bar! That’s the way to roll. And how was your weekend?Fashion Week Survival Tips…As you know, we are enjoying Fashion Week here in New York. Sharon Haver and I will be covering all the backstage beauty and celebrity gossip as well as the spring makeup and fashion trends that her feet can handle!

Hamptons Gossip and the Best Early Halloween Costumes- It’s Two of a Strange and Dishy Kind

Brad Boles is still on the loose making and collecting gossip in the Hamptons before the summer season comes to an end. Brad did take some time away from the luxe set to fine-tune some Halloween costumes that are about to hit the stores. It may seem early for you to start thinking about what will be the biggest Halloween costumes trends but if you look in the aisle next to school supplies, you’ll see that Halloween costumes are already hitting the shelves in the big box stores! I always say, you better look good becuase ‘ya never when that costumed photo of you will reappear… Case in point: The costumed photo of Brad and me below. We still look super glam and crazy fabulous too! — S.H.Queen on Queen…Polo finished its sixth week with some Miami heat and that dreadful queen from the Real Housewives of DC. His name fails me, but between the skinny-leg jeans and the flash dance t-shirt, I thought my metrosexual friend Rob Siegel was going to loose it…and he did! I’m not sure if Rob has recovered from this all-to-recent episode. But, we have to talk about the DC queen’s hair thing: think Dionne Warwick! Dark back and frosted front piece combed over, looking a lot like a very fem version of James Brown. And what about shine? Honey, has he ever heard of blotting paper? I don’t recommend you guys out there try this look. It doesn’t work in the Hamptons and sure as h**l doesn’t work in DC! I will say though, that seeing Nacho Figueroa helped to sooth my nerves. He’s the sweetest guy on the planet and his wife Delphinia is so sexy. She rocked the look at polo!The beautiful morning talk show princess…The following day proved to be much softer on the eyes at The Hampton Classics. I ran into Kelly Rippa and her beyond-gorgeous husband, Mark Consuelo. The good thing about going out with a metrosexual is that there’s no competition when one vies for someone’s attention!Kelly is as funny in person as Mark is hot! I ran into them boating a few weeks back with Bravo’s very own Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper (I guess she likes her guests to have matching initials). Just think. They would never have to change the monograms. And how was your weekend!

All Hamptons… All Gossip… A Socialite and A Pink Birkin Bag

Brad Boles remains on the lose in The Hamptons spilling the bean$… and, yes, the overuse of the color pink can make me cringe, expect on Brad, of course. — S.H.Action, Lights, No Camera…Polo in The Hamptons proved to be very interesting for me with the pink Birkin… ostrich of course. I know Sharon is probably upchucking the the thought of pink, but we both agree that the color can be chic on a MAN!I bumped into Tinsley Mortimer whom I haven’t seen in a few months so I was very surprised to hear that she is not shooting any more for her reality shows We had a good laugh about what living your life in front of the camera is really like… finally, somebody I could talk to about how it feels when people come up to you like they know you. She agreed that what people see is a very small glimpse into your real life. Six Degrees of Separation…largeTinsley in person is very sweet and her boyfriend Brian is so sexy! Topper, Tinsley’s ex-husband, is dating Meredith Olstrom, daughter of the fabulous decorator Barbara Olstrom. Barbara is the one that did the interiors of Russell and Kimora’s saddle river mess! It’s six degrees of separation, as Meredith dated Nick Rhodes from Duran Duran after Julie Ann Rhodes, my close friend, divorced Nick. He went on to Meredith and, together for six years, they’ve lived in London.

Khloe is the Hottest Kardashian this week, Surfer Style Do’s and Fashion Don’ts from Brad Boles

The Hiltons (as in Kathy and Rick) continue to enjoy the summer heat out East. I ran into them the other night enjoying a quiet dinner at Bobby Vans, so we had a few minutes to catch up. We had a good laugh about Paris Fashion Week and the wonderful dinner on a boat on the Seine we all enjoyed for Dior years ago.Ivana Trump (think Joanna Lumley as Patsy from the fabu TV show ABFAB) was seated with us at the dinner dressed in a glamorous large, soft brimmed black hat shaped like a man’s Borsalino with a shocking pink scarf at her throat. And, the best fitted box jacketed Grey bombazine suit you’ve ever seen! The Grand Master himself, John Galliano, loosely adjusted her scarf all evening. Now that was a dinner to remember!mediumKhloe Kardasian is looking very hot…Polo turned out to be so much fun, with perfect weather. Rob Siegel and I headed to the VIP SWAGG Lounge at the Bridgehampton Polo Challenge at Blue Star Jets Field enclosure and ran into the ever-perfect and slimmed-down Khloe Kardasian… how gorgeous does she look? Her washboard flat stomach is amazing!The Hamptons are a pit stop as Khloe’s bags are packed and she’s following her husband, Lamar Odom, on a tour of Turkey and Greece. I sent a kiss to mama Kris Jenner, whom I adore and had lunch with recently in LA!LISTEN TO SHARON HAVER AND BRAD BOLES ON FOCUS ON STYLE- TALK RADIO:

Money Matters- Cultural Clash In The Hamptons From A Countess to LL Cool J and One Supermodel

“Breathless Brad Boles has been busy rubbing some very ritzy elbows this weekend and is more than happy to share the dish. Me? I wish I was really on vacation! –S.H.Friday night saw a return to Almond, the tony East End, boy’s-night-out hotspot in the Hamptons where I dined with Catherine Saxton (the fabulous PR maven who handles all of Ivana Trump’s ups and downs) who is a houseguest of Cathy and Rick Hilton.FYI… the Hiltons have done an amazing job reinventing their glamorous Fordune estate in Southampton. It is completely bathed in white and teal and flooded with light. When I was there recently, I had a wonderful encounter with TINKERBELL – yes, you heard me right – as in Paris Hilton’s famed Chihuahua! Bling to ding…After dinner it was off to Lilly Pond for a sexy performance by none other then my “The Real Housewives of New York City” titled babe, “The Countess” Luann de Lesseps. The best part of the evening: LL Cool J had a banquet room filled with his posse. Go figure…those two in a room so small from Bling to Ding?Don’t ever believe that the rich aren’t still rich.On Saturday it was off to Polo… for some perfect weather and perfect people! It’s one big cocktail party with nobody really watching the game. On one arm, I had the ever-divine Adrian Arpel, and on the other, her time-challenged daughter Lauren Arpel. I was trying to get Madame Arpel to buy a helicopter. As everybody knows, the Montauk highway is a nightmare in August. Can you imagine if we had landed on the Polo field?LISTEN to Sharon Haver & Brad Boles on Focus on Style Talk Radio:

Hamptons Happenings From Blowouts to Baggy Pants, Color Blocking, Rompers, Super Saturday Shopping and Polo

Sweeties, Breathless Brad Boles has been roaming about with more dish to share… S.H.Meow, meow, it may be Gay Night but there are some be-atchy boyz out there..Gosh, I know I can have a sharp tongue but I never make the obvious rude attempt to talk about someone behind his or her back when they are actually right smack in front of me. So tacky.I started my evening off dining at Almond in Bridgehampton with my ever-fabulous friend Lauren Arpel who is no stranger to the world of beauty and some other friends. Then the cattiness ensued…To my shock, I was recognized from “The Real Housewives of New York City” by a pack of be-atchy queens! The place was all a flutter with crazed hairdressers and their tired comments. A table within earshot was LOUDLY dishing-rudely-about ALL the RHONYC ladies. Some mad queen even demanded to know where Lauren got her blowout and really started snipping his scissor tongue at all of us! Get a life, Blanche!And, we’re outta there… We made it out of there within an inch of our lives and their Tom of Finland tanks, then headed to Madame Tong’s in Southampton where we bumped into Mary Alice Stephenson– the fab fashion consultant. She joined us for a few rounds on the dance floor. You must know that I can’t dance from Season 2… what a sight it must have been, but I had fun!

“The East End was crawling with Bravo camera crews this past weekend.originalOn Saturday alone, I was involved in two shoots one starting at 11AM involving a potential NEW Housewife for “The Real Housewives of New York City!” This was NOT a set up. I just happened to be doing the interiors of this hottie’s Bridgehampton home when the doorbell rang. I answered it to the shock and amusement of the camera crew!Needless to say, the maybe new Housewife pulled it off without a hitch, even though there were tractors and workmen in the background. And there I was directing the workman not the camera crew… brick by brick! All the while, the potential new Housewife was dripping in diamonds and 5-inch Louboutins!Gorgeous, equally yummy, half-naked staff then served a sumptuous lunch… ooh baby! Now, if that is not what makes a Housewife, I don’t know what does.

How big is your match?That evening I found myself at the Bravo filming of “Millionaire Matchmaker” in the tony Southampton home of a very sexy and powerful millionairess. Believe me, there were more lights and cameras than the East End has seen in a while.The crowd consisted of a very beautiful mix of single ladies and eligible men. My metrosexual guy friend Rob Siegel and I ran into another Bravo family member at the party- Indrani, who was a guest of Jill and Bobby Zarin. We had a great time gossiping about Indrani’s “Double Exposure” show and what goes into those over-the-top photo shoots! And you thought my life is crazy!”

Jill Zarin and Kelly Killoren Bensimon see each other. I even spot Camille Grammer. There are celebrities and Housewives left and right out here this weekend, and I have the dish!he Fourth of July cover of “Social Life” magazine is a big deal out here. Smart of them to choose the super-gorgeous, Kelly Killoren Bensimon of “The Real Housewives of New York” as this week’s cover girl. The inside of the magazine isn’t too bad either as there happens to be a fabulous picture of me at the art opening of “Social Life” creator and man about the Hamptons, Justin Mitchell.

Hold tight kiddies, because in the weeks to come, Brad and I will be chatting away with you! S.H.There is something about warm weather and beaches that brings out the sexy in all of us.There’s no better “Housewife” then the Countess Luann de Lesseps who gave a great radio interview with my very sexy friend Judith Regan of SirusXM. The Countess remained a lady through all the hard hitting questions about Kelly Killoren Bensimon apparent breakdown on ‘Poison Island,’ at least she was smart enough not to end up in that hot mess of a house!Even sexier is my metrosexual friend and Hamptons cohort, the travel guy, Rob Siegel.
