The Scoop: Star-Studded Hamptons Happenings At Art Southampton, Super Saturday, & Art For Life

Last weekend was hot but this weekend will be star-studded and popping with champagne in the Hamptons.

ArtSouthampton kicks off the weekend and rounds out a month of incredible art fairs with a VIP opening night this Thursday, July 25, 2013. GRAFF Diamonds, Perrier Jouet Champagne, and Kevin Berlin's "Alien Invasion" are on the must-see list for the opening party that benefits Southampton Hospital.

Kelly Ripa and Donna Karan are back to host the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund's 16th annual Super Saturday, presented by QVC and InStyle. Super Saturday is the "Rolls Royce of garage sales" and for the sixth year in a row, celebrity stylist and designer in her own right, Rachel Zoe, will be curating a luxury designer booth, "Designers A to Zoe."

Sounds Waves, presented by Cadillac at the Montauk Beach House, has a British Invasion this weekend with a DJ set by Roger Taylor of Duran Duran fame; as well as performances by British house music trio Dirty Vegas and DJ Hesta Prynn to open. The entire event is poolside at the glamorous Montauk Beach House with its two central pools, and 10,000 sq foot outdoor grounds.

Grab a girlfriend and head to Montauk for a little pampering. Join us in celebrating summer beauty at a Spatini at Gurney's Inn! The two-day event has plenty of spa giveaways, services, and music by DJ Dodge.

Who doesn't love to see what's behind the hedges and inside the cupboards of the amazing homes in the Hamptons? I know I do and that's why the 2013 Hampton Designer Showhouse presented by Traditional Home is on my list this weekend.

As day fades into night this Saturday gets event hotter with the 9th Annual Hamptons Happening "Feast" benefiting the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation. Maria and Kenneth Fishelin host the culinary extravaganza at their Bridgehampton with celebrity chef and restauranteur extraordinaire Todd English.

The Watermill Center will be another hot spot for art aficionados this Saturday with guests clamoring for tickets to the 20th anniversary gala, "Devil's Haven." Acclaimed actor Alan Cumming will host the evening that features performance artists from across the globe.

Finally, music mogul Russel Simmons turns up the volume and mega-watt star power with the 14th annual Art For Life Hamptons gala to support the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation. This year the event is hosted by Soledad O'Brien, honors the likes of Tyler Perry, and features performances by Estelle, Maxwell, and Rick Ross. This is the A-List event of the summer with a guestlist that includes the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, John Legend, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Hudson, Donna Karan, Aretha Franklin, and so many, many more.
