This Saturday night, The Watermill Center brought together the worlds of art, design, theater, fashion and society for Voluptuous Panic: The 18th Annual Watermill Summer Benefit.

Guests kicked off the night with Bacardi cocktails while perusing the installations and performances spread around six acres on the grounds of Watermill.  Supporters such as Johnny Misheff, Beth DeWoody, Jamee & Peter Gregory, Dakota Jackson, Anne Hearst & Jay McInerney, Carol Mack and Christopher Mason enjoyed a silent auction (including works from Marina Abramovic, Philippe Starck and Robert Longo, to name a few),  a live auction hosted by auctioneer Simon de Pury, performances, art installations and dinner.

‘Voluptuous Panic’ was meant to inspire fashion, and certainly drew a fashionable crowd including Stephanie LaCava and Arden Wohl (both dressed head-to-toe in their summer whites), Blair Voltz Clark,  Darrell Hartman, Fabiola Beracasa, Hamish Bowles and Stefano Tonchi.

The evening concluded with dancing under the stars in the auction tent.
