Vicki Gunvalson, Ramona Singer, Cynthia Bailey, And Kristen Taekman Attend Jill Zarin's Fourth Annual Luxury Luncheon

Lee Fryd

Jill and Bobby Zarin seem to love every minute of their fame filled lives, thanks to the love they received as part of the original Real Housewives of New York City. To share the perks to which they became accustomed to, Jill came up with a luxury luncheon concept. Once a year, those who flock to the Zarin's sprawling beachfront Shinnecock glass and concrete estate, come home with thousands of dollars worth of goodies and luxury beauty services. When we get home and start opening the goodie bags, it's truly Christmas in July!

This year, Jill Zarin's 4th Annual Luxury Ladies Luncheon brought out Real Housewives Vicki Gunvalson (The OC), debuting her new perfume; Cynthia Bailey (Atlanta), Kathy Wakile (New Jersey), and Ramona Singer, Kristen Taekman, Kelly Bensimon, and Cindy Barshop (New York City). Jonathan Cheban, Olivia Caridi of The Bachelor, Lisa Wexler, stylist Phillip Bloch, country music star Jon Stone, Rita Cosby, President of Douglas Elliman, Dottie Herman, President of Macy's Stores, Jeff Kantor, Fox News' Kimbery Guilfoyle, recent RNC Star Lynne Patton, world famous artist Domingo Zapata, and champion drag racer Joe Amato also made the scene.

Gourmet food was designed and served by Carlyle Off the Green & Pat La Frieda Meats with Celebrity Chef Adam Banks, a chocolate truffle bar from Voila Chocolat, rosé provided by Studio Wines Boisset and Blue Ice Vodka cocktails.

And the gift bag? Valued at over $5,000, it was filled with goodies from M Cushion, Xtava, Quilted Koala, Ralph Lauren, COOLA Suncare, LuMee, Spongellé, Supersmile, Justin's and V-Spot Medi Spa.

The "beauty bar" included free gifts for women including Radha Beauty, Kiss USA, Ageless La Cure, Cane +Austin, Clio/Mumsie, Poo-Pourri, on-site personalized bags from GiGi New York and Le Bebe Coo. Health & wellness brands included Alkaline expert Dr. Daryl Gioffre of Alkamind, Super Detox Me, the body restart cleanse, and Juvly Aesthetics.

There was a nail bar from Pop of Color, a braid bar hosted by rpzl, a Sania's Brow Bar, and on-site massages!

Attendees looking to spend in honor of The Eric Trump Foundation for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital were treated to discounts from designer trunk shows like Love-Thirteen, Chic Boutique, Hallow + Plank, Palaso Aspen, and Lyla Renai.

Let's not forget the Zarin Fabrics pool-side cabana and lounge and the boat rides on Shinnecock Bay — and for one afternoon, we got to live the vida loca — Zarin style!
