Super Saturday 13

Wow!  Super Saturday was amazing!  With beautiful weather in the Hamptons, the super tag sale featuring just about every major designer you can name off the top of your head (Carolina Herrera, Calvin Klein, Catherine Malandrino, Charlotte Ronson, Diane von Furstenberg, Elizabeth & James, Giorgio Armani and Ralph Lauren etc.) makes you feel good all the bargain hunting  raises funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

This year was Alex Woo’s fifth time participating in the event and this time it was co-hosted by actress/model Ashley Greene, Kelly Ripa, Donna Karan and In Style magazine.  Created in 1998 by Donna Karan, the event since its founding has all net proceeds raised go directly to OCRF’s research programs.  Last year, Super Saturday raised over $3.7 million for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

Ashley Greene, most famous for her recent roles in the Twilight series as Alice Cullen, stayed fashionably cool in a smart white dress and was a gracious host taking photos with her many younger fans.  Nominated by People Magazine as one of the “World’s Most Beautiful Women of 2010″ and “The Style Icon Award” at Hollywood Life’s Young Hollywood Awards this year, she is the “It girl” of the moment and we hope it lasts a long time.

In the inset photo, is InStyle’s Fashion Director, Hal Rubenstein.  He has been an integral part of InStyle since its launch and established the magazine as the authority on celebrity style.  Counted as an expert in countless TV shows, he is also the author of  Paisley Goes With Nothing: A Men’s Guide to Style, a sharp and witty resource for men who need look better, feel better and behave like a gentlemen and is currently working on his next book Killer Dresses: 100 Looks You Can’t Forget to be published in 2011.

Gracie Mansion and Mayor Bloomberg

At Gracie Mansion for a special event after Independence Day, Alex Woo meets up with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.  Gracie Mansion and its surrounding land hold an important place in
the history of both New York City and the United States well before the House was designated the official residence of the Mayor of the City of New York in 1942.  But it was only in 2002, that Gracie Mansion was again restored and declared the “People’s House” by Mayor Michael Bloomberg with everyone being given increased access to the House. 

Alex enjoyed a special tour of the mansion, admired the detail of the Compass Rose Motif on Trompe-L’oeil painted floor in the Historic Foyer and the cocktails and food.
