The Surf Lodge‘s private summer dinner parties are majorly VIP. This weekend, model Hilary Rhoda and her stylish pro-jock fiancé Sean Avery hosted a soirée by the lake for their cute collaboration with Solid & Striped. The capsule collection is simple and chic. “It was so fun to work on something with Sean,” Hilary told me. “And the collection is for guys and girls so all our friends can wear it.” Kelly Bensimon arrived with her two daughters sporting a gauzy, long Solid & Striped white beachy thingie that Hilary designed. “I would wear this everyday if I could,” Kelly said. “It’s so me.”
Isaac Ross, Solid & Striped’s main man, had a well-stocked ice cream cart that everyone made multiple trips to. Andy Cohen, in an embroidered denim shirt and flip flops, licked a grape popsicle that turned his tongue purple which he stuck out for a few Insta-worthy snaps. Also chez-Surf: Natalie Joos, Tommy Saleh, Leandra Medine, Andre Saraiva, Peter Smith (who surfed Big Rock that morning), Ronja O’Kane, and Dria Murphy.
As guests ravished plates of local heirloom tomatoes, grilled steak, tile fish, and other delish dishes, fireworks exploded across the moonlit lake. “I did this just for you Hilary and Sean,” Jayma Cardoso, Surf Lodge’s charismatic, sexy owner announced to the crowd as Sean and Hilary sat holding hands on a wood log as the sparkly night sky lit up their oh-so very, very pretty faces.
