steven_spielberg1The Hampton Classic this year has been a lot of fun, especially with an all access VIP pass courtesy of the Hamptons Resorts & Hotels. The competitions have been fun to watch, well, almost as much fun as the great shopping and celebrity spotting. The week started with seeing Kelly Ripa and husband hanging out a few tables down from us. Got exceedingly better when Bruce Springsteen showed up and was within touching distance (had to restrain myself). Friday, after a long walk through the Boutique Garden, I decided to stop at a bench and there I was sitting next to Steven Spielberg and his wife. Could it get more surreal? Saturday, the rain just would not let up, and we spent most of the time in the VIP tent. The Boutique Garden merchants were hating the rain, meant very little foot traffic for them. The celebrity highlight was Robert Duvall and his beautiful wife Luciana. Other sightings included James Lipton, Sebastian (NYC Prep) and yes, Kelly Ripa. Oddly no sightings of the Housewives of NY. The fashion highlights were embellished tunics, colorful rain boots and Havianas.
