AT LAWRENCE SCOTT EVENTS 'MORE IS MORE'

****
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
****

Lawrence Scott Event



A signature Lawrence Scott Event offers guests a chance to enter a magical environment that allows them to escape and connect in a magnificent space unlike any other. Event themes are limitless and have covered weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, birthdays, charity galas, corporate events, sports themed events and more – no challenge is too big for this events guru and his team of skilled caterers and party planners.



Customized events are offered all over the tristate area and the East End, and past clients include the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s annual ball An Evening of Wishes, Hamptons Magazine’s 35th anniversary fête, thrown at the stunning Sculpture Fields of Nova’s ARK Project in Bridgehampton, and the UJA-Federation’s Summerfest cocktail party, featuring a glittering array of private soirées. Lawrence Scott has a long undisclosed list of loyal A-list celebrity clients that keep rehiring him for his bespoke events and discreet and personable approach.

A Event Your Never Forget


Lawrence Scott has always believed that “more is more” and nowhere is this approach better showcased than in his awe-inspiring displays and gourmet food offerings. There are as many varieties to the delicious dishes and drinks served as there are event themes – all in order to add to the event’s overall visual impact and playful possibilities.



Part of what sets Scott’s style apart is his innate understanding of his guests and making everyone feel included. To him it is all about the mix — the high and the low, the formal and the relaxed — that comes together to make a truly standout celebration. And as they say, timing is everything. Perfect timing coupled with exacting choreography are what Larry’s signature invasions are all about. An adrenaline pop at just the right moment, the invasion gives the party life and smiles and unforgettable memories!



In addition to his state-of-the-art events reputation, Scott is equally known for his charitable efforts. With a long standing commitment to the community and decades of support for charity, Scott is viewed just as much as a philanthropist as he is events guru.

Because of this lighter flavor, Manhattan Moonshine can make an almost endless variety of cocktails, from Manhattans to Mint Juleps to Margaritas, meaning it can easily replace the liquor in your father's drink of choice. Pick up a bottle today and if you are lucky, maybe he will share!

IT GIRL AND ACTIVIST MAYA HENRY @ CFDA AWARDS

****
HIGH FASHION
****

Coco Rocha With Maya Henry



Teen It girl and activist Maya Henry attended the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Fashion Awards recently, along with the likes of Beyoncé, Michael Kors, Heidi Klum and Naomi Campbell. The annual event, which took place at the Hammerstein Ballroom in central New York was hosted by comedian Joel McHale and in collaboration with Swarovski. CFDA is a non-profit trade association whose membership consists of more than 400 of America’s foremost womenswear, menswear, jewelry and accessory designers.



Fashionista Maya Henry looked radiant in a full length semi-sheer Etro gown with long sleeves and a floral pattern, matched with jewels by David Webb. Maya sported a trendy triple braid hairstyle by expert hair stylist Laura Polko and makeup by celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta. This fashionista became an overnight sensation because of her $6M Quinceañera earlier this year - that featured performances by Pitbull and Nick Jonas.



Guests at the event included some of the biggest names in fashion, including: Anna Wintour, Adriana Lima, Irina Shayk, Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Laverne Cox, Ryan Seacrest, Jay Z, Blue Ivy Carter, Ciara, Harvey Weinstein, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Brandon Maxwell, Olivia Wilde, Monique Lhuillier, Rachel Zoe, Jason Wu, Doutzen Kroes, Alexa Chung, Taylor Hill, Jessica Chastain, Victor Cruz, Claire Danes, Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Dwayne Wade, Vera Wang, Tommy Hilfiger, Coco Rocha, Jonathan Cheban and Jennifer Hudson.



The CFDA Fashion Awards is the most important annual event in the calendar of American fashion, and one of the few times a year that so many different fashion influencers come together in one place at the same time. The evening’s Award Winners included: Brandon Maxwell (Swarovski Award for Womenswear), Alex, Matthew and Samantha Orley of Orley (Swarovski Award for Menswear), Paul Andrew (Swarovski Award for Accessory Design), Imran Amed (Media Award in honor of Eugenia Sheppard for The Business of Fashion), Alessandro Michele of Gucci (International Award), Thom Browne (Menswear Designer of the Year), Marc Jacobs (Womenswear Designer of the Year) and Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel of Mansur Gavriel (Accessory Designer of the Year). Additionally, Michael Kors presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to Norma Kamali, and Calvin Klein presented the Founder’s Award in Honor of Eleanor Lambert to Donna Karan.



The evening’s greatest surprise was Beyoncé. Guests had no inclination that the superstar was at the event when CFDA Chairwoman Diane von Furstenberg presented Beyoncé with the Fashion Icon award. Beyoncé, who was visibly moved by the awards, said that her mother Tina Knowles has long been her inspiration. “When we were starting out in Destiny’s Child, high-end labels didn’t want to dress four black country girls,” she told the audience. “We couldn’t afford designer dresses. My mom was rejected from every showroom in New York. But like my grandmother, she used her talent and creativity to give her children their dreams. My mother and my Uncle Jonny designed all of our first costumes and made each piece by hand. And when I wore these clothes onstage, I felt like I had an extra suit of armor. It was so much deeper than any brand name…my mother and my uncle and my grandmother were with me…I couldn’t fail.”



As a great finale to a great event, Jennifer Hudson took to the stage with a medley of Prince’s “When Doves Cry,” “The Beautiful Ones,” and “Let’s Go Crazy”, which had the fashion crowd on its feet and ready to continue the night at the event’s after party.




About Maya Henry



Maya Henry is the daughter of Azteca Henry and top national injury lawyer Thomas J. Henry. In San Antonio, Maya Henry’s name is synonymous with philanthropy and community engagement. Following in her father’s footsteps, she has worked with numerous charities including the San Antonio YES Foundation where she helped distribute school supplies to children in need throughout the San Antonio area. Maya also launched Maya’s Corner in 2010, which is an endeavor to promote and assist causes benefitting children. Maya is determined to pursue a career in international human rights in the future.



This young lady has also demonstrated wisdom and drive well beyond her years in her athletic success as well as her interest in politics. Although only a freshman in high school, she has already positioned herself as a regular on the Texas Tennis Championship circuit. Maya Henry is also an avid supporter of the Hillary Clinton 2016 Presidential campaign. Maya has put her expansive social media presence to use with the hashtag #teensforhillary, from which she hopes to mobilize her 40,000 Instagram followers in support of the Hillary Clinton campaign and to bring awareness to issues involving female empowerment and opportunities for Latina America women. Maya has had the opportunity to meet Hillary Clinton on several occasions. She hopes her own political activism will show her peers that even if you aren’t old enough to vote, you can still make a difference. She strongly encourages teens to use their social media reach to spread Hillary’s message of opportunity and hope.

The Inn also offered gift bags filled with this summer’s bestselling beach books and other goodies from HamptonGiftBag.com, a division of Madison & Mulholland, to Memorial weekend hotel guests. Over 100 guests attended the event.



Notable attendees included: Jonathan Cheban, Dina Lohan, Victor de Souza, Leesa Rowland, Bradford Rand, Katlean de Monchy, Terry Sarro, Dawne Marie Grannum, Liz Rose, Steven Carl, Vlad Wilson, Denise Dean, Christopher Dean, Philip Gotthelf, Paula Gotthelf, Delaina Dixon, Bianca Paradis, Eric Purcell, Ron Burkhardt, Mark Massone, Thomas Crawford, Lucia Hwong Gordon, Brad Shaheen, Sara Herbert Galloway, Larry Wohl, Jasmine Parks, Cynthia Ott, Dr. Jeffrey Rosenthal, Rohina Bhandari, Gregory D'Elia, Tony Bowles, Christina Madden, Xavier Tourne and Elena Ayot.



At Southampton Inn, guests can make the most of the acres of lawn space that appeals to many interests. The private gardens are ideal for reading or quiet contemplation, while the all-weather tennis court, heated 50-foot swimming pool, shuffleboard court, Ping Pong table or green spaces for croquet, volleyball, or badminton will appeal to athletes of all ability levels.



With an on-site, well-stocked game room, the Southampton Inn is welcoming to families and guests of all ages. Pets are also welcome (for an additional fee) in one of the Inn’s specially designated pet-friendly guest rooms. At the end of the day, guests can retire to their well-appointed guestrooms that include Tempur-Pedic mattresses, upscale linens, Gilchrist & Soames toiletries, complimentary Wi-Fi internet access, and flat-screen televisions with more than 100 channels.



Another exciting update this year is Southampton Inn’s new in-house restaurant Café Klyde, headed up by Chef Scott Andriani, which will stay open for breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the season. Southampton Inn will continue to serve up Dan’s Paper’s “Best of the Best” Breakfast at Café Klyde restaurant. Café Klyde is open for lunch daily, offering delectable seasonal dishes such as the Gin Cured Salmon Sashimi, Braised Spring Lamb Meatballs and Klyde’s “open faced” Lobster Roll.



Café Klyde serves up dinner specials such as the Locally Caught Grilled Bass served with cous cous, olives, roasted tomato, black kale and lemon; a signature Hampton Clam Chowder; and the fresh Summer Salad, featuring local leaves, strawberries, feta cheese and shaved whole wheat. Pair with draft beers, a selection of wines, or signature drinks such as the Southampton Mojito Float. For those with a sweet tooth, the Chocolate Flourless Mini Cake with Fresh Raspberries and the Strawberry Trifle are not to be missed. The restaurant’s club-casual décor creates a relaxing, non-pretentious atmosphere where guests can enjoy a true Hamptons dining experience with style and ease. Café Klyde will also offer catering to serve all kinds of corporate functions, retreats, cocktail parties, luncheons, rehearsal dinners, weddings and more! The catering service pulls from the classic breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus.



The property’s 6,000 square feet of flexible indoor meeting space, which includes a conference room, ballroom, on-site restaurant, and proximity to transportation to and from New York City, also make the Southampton Inn an ideal location for corporate meetings, retreats and conferences as well as social gatherings.



Southampton Inn continuously develops relationships with new restaurant and shop owners each year to ensure they have the most up to date menus and most exclusive coupons to offer their guests. Southampton Inn works with the Hamptons Visitor Council, the Southampton Historical Museum, and the local news outlets to make sure everyone is working together to make Southampton the most exciting vacation spot on Long Island.
