This Memorial Day Weekend, DuJour Publisher Jason Binn along with Aurae Lifestyle, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City and Zenith Watches, toasted summer cover star Dakota Fanning out in the Hamptons at the magazine’s annual Memorial Day Kick-Off party.
On the heels of George Filopoulos‘s purchase of Gurney’s Montauk Yacht Club and Resort on Saturday, May 26, the annual summer bash offered celebrity guests light bites such as mini quiches, crab cakes and sliders, along with Whispering Angel Rosé, provided by Paul Chevalier that was flowing the whole day. Music by Coco Robert, aka Coco The DJ, kept party goers dancing for hours. The soirée served as a viral campaign ahead of the launch of Jim Allen’s Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, set to open June 28.
The true star of the party, Fanning, was sparkling in a floral-printed Cinq à Sept dress and Christian Louboutin heels, offering a sophisticated and sweet summer style. CEO of Swiss watch manufacturer Zenith Watches, Julien Tornare, presented the Alienist star with an elegant Elite Ladies Moon Phase with Diamonds wristwatch, which she kept on her wrist while posing for pictures and mingling with guests throughout the party. Notable attendees included Fanning’s boyfriend Henry Frye, designer Andrew Warren and former Commissioner of the NYCPD Raymond Kelly.
Fanning is slated to appear in this summer’s highly anticipated blockbuster hit, Ocean’s 8, a heist comedy spin-off of Steven Soderbergh’s trilogy, due out June 8.
