The other day we were musing on the go-to-hell fashions at ultra-fancy Hamptons summer benefits which enliven an otherwise dull sartorial season.

On the flipside, there’s something to be said for the seamier sort of East End bacchanal, the kind where they use any means necessary to pack the joint and drum up publicity, such as the Hugo Boss and Interview magazine shindig at the Kingswood Estate in East Hampton the other night.

With various activities staged around the grounds, party planners employed these roving bands of nubile naiads to point the way. We don’t know their names because to our jaded lensman such scenes are merely classified as “atmosphere,” actual identities being irrelevant — which come to think of it is exactly right.
