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.

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!
