The cult of personality continues in the madcap world of mags (and online publishing; this is 2011, after all). Thanks to Racked, the faces behind fashion's biggest bylines, chicest party-hopping editrices and plummest placements on the masthead are being pitted against one another for the site's debut Hottest Fashion Editor Competition. Kind of reminds Chic of Gawker's digital throwdown of the (already dishy) gossip reporting scene six years ago. Whether you're jazzed by Elle's Joe Zee, think Marie Claire's Zanna Roberts Rassi is where the glossy mag's zeitgeist is at, or are very loyal to a fave Voguette, cast your votes through July 20! We're keeping our bets under wraps for now...

If there was any doubt that Montauk has emerged as the ne plus ultra of East End partying (sorry, Cyril's!), it was assuaged on Saturday, July 2, when the Bens (as in, Watts and Pundole) hosted the annual Shark Attack Sounds Fourth-ish of July bash outdoors at Rick's Crabby Cowboy Cafe. The DJs were many—Chelsea Leyland, Kieren Taylor, Plastic Plates and MC DIN 525—but then again, so were the revelers: Liev Schrieber, Danny Fuller, Jessica Hart, Stavros Niarchos, Dylan Lauren, Rogan Gregory, Bridget Hall, Jenne Lombardo, Ric Pipino, and too many more to count. Kanon Vodka (which hosted an equally raucous party the following evening at Ruschmeyer's) ensured that the dance party (co-sponsored by Milk and Kanon Vodka) was well-lubricated, while gratis Warby Parker sunglasses were gifted as party favors. Shady? Not in the least.

Alessandra Ambrosio hosted the second annual "Follow The Sun" summer party at SL in East Hampton on Sunday night. Kellan Lutz (he's everywhere these days!), Luciana Gimenez, Jamie Mazur, Lorenzo Martone and Gossip Girl's Matthew Settle joined our fave Brazilian bombshell, who according to our spies danced the night away until "leaving the venue through the back door to avoid chaos caused by fans at the entrance." Another quiet evening in the Hamptons...

Betsey Johnson and her beloved, the drummer Bobby Reynolds, recently celebrated their first anniversary together. The Daily Dan got the scoop on the happy couple. 


Where did you meet?
Betsey: At the Ritz-Carlton on Central Park South. Long story short, he thought I was a masseuse! 

Bobby: I thought, “Who is this beautiful woman?” I assumed she was there to give a massage, but she was there to get one. We exchanged numbers and had our first date, and she said, “You really don’t know who I am?” 

Betsey: I love it when nobody knows me. I actually love it when they do and love it when they don’t! 

Bobby: None of my guy friends knew who she was, but their wives or girlfriends were like, Betsey Johnson!

Betsey: Don’t these guys ever unzip their wife’s dress and see my label? 


Did you kiss on the first date?

Betsey: Oh, we did! 


Care to elaborate?

Betsey: No!
