I’ve got some great photos from the Blue Jacket Fashion Show, benefitting the Prostate Cancer Foundation, which was held in the city on Wednesday, February 1, at Pier 59 Studios. The event, held during New York Men’s Fashion Week, was held in partnership with Johnson & Johnson and brought out the big crowds–and lots and of our own famous faces from the East End.

Those walking the runway wearing one-of-a-kind blue jackets included actor Mario Cantone, musician and model Ian Mellencamp, New York Giants Wide Receiver Victor Cruz, TV personality Carson Kressley, science educator and host of the forthcoming Netflix series Bill Nye Saves the World Bill Nye, New York Yankees Pitcher CC Sabathia, New York Post’s Richard Johnson, model Alex Lundqvist, and CNN Anchor Don Lemon. Several of the specially designed jackets modeled during the show will be auctioned off with proceeds going to the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

Those who attended included: Nicole Miller, Mario Cantone, Ian Mellencamp, Victor Cruz, Carson Kressley, Bill Nye, CC Sabathia, Richard Johnson, Alex Lundqvist, Don Lemon, Bonnie Pfeifer Evans, Gustavo Moscoso,   Omar Sharif Jr, Jack Griffo, Lee Tergesen, Maggie Norris, Melba Moore, Meredith Ostrom, Mary Snow, Ty Hunter, Charlii Sebunya, David Barranger, DJ Xavier, Alessandro Mele, Frederick Anderson, Valesca Guerrand Hermes, Larry Leeds and Jan Haber.

And here’s your Hot Pick for today:


A scene from “The Money Shot,” now staging at the Southampton Cultural Center. 

There are only two opportunities left to watch “The Money Shot” at the Southampton Cultural Center–tonight and tomorrow afternoon. I’m finally free to go see the show, much later than I would’ve preferred but the calendar never stops even in January and February. Will I see you in the crowd tonight? I hope so.

Need more info? Here ’tis:

Center Stage at Southampton Cultural Center will present the Long Island premiere of  Neil LaBute’s The Money Shot through Sunday, February 5th at Southampton Cultural Center’s (SCC) Levitas Center for the Arts. The Money Shot, an acid-tongued showbiz satire by Neil LaBute  premiered at the MCC Theater at the Lucille Lortel Theater in New York in 2014.

The Money Shot takes place in the  Hollywood Hills home of couple Karen and Bev.  Karen  and Steve  are glamorous movie stars with one thing in common: desperation. It’s been years since either one’s had a hit, but the latest movie by a hot shot European director could change that. The night before filming a big scene (that seems destined to assure them a spot back on the pop culture radar), Karen, her partner Bev, and  Steve and his aspiring actress wife Missy meet in order to make an important decision: how far will they let themselves go to keep from slipping further down the Hollywood food chain?  Sexy, daring, darkly hilarious―and LaBute’s first officially billed comedy―The Money Shotlands as sharp and hot as a paparazzo’s camera flash in a starlet’s eye.

Joan M. Lyons makes her solo directorial debut.

The Money Shot features Bonnie Grice, Joseph Marshall, Tamara Salkin and Kristin Whiting.

Performances will run on Saturday at 8 pm and Sunday at 2:30 pm on the stage of The Levitas Center for the Arts, 25 Pond Lane, Southampton, across from Agawam Park.  General admission is $22 and student (under 21 with ID is $12).  Group rates, -brunch/theater and dinner theater packages available at or by   calling 631-287-4377.  Reservations are encouraged.
