(Long Island, NY) Sexy Hamptonites attended the third annual St. Barth Hamptons gala in Bridgehampton. The event took place at the Bridgehampton Historical Society on July 19, 2014, from 6 PM to 10 PM in a billowing white tent under the stars.

The French-isle inspired fete celebrated the American beauty’s July cover story of Brooke Shields in the luxury lifestyle publication, Social Life Magazine which hit newsstands that same day.

Brooke, there to promote her cover story in Social Life Magazine, is an American actress, model and former child star. She was born in 1965. Brook Shields started her career as a child model and quickly gained critical acclaim for her leading role in Louis Malle’s controversial film “Pretty Baby” filmed in 1978. In this role Brooke played a child prostitute in New Orleans at the turn of the 20th century. The role garnered Shields widespread notoriety, and she continued to model into her late teenage years and starred in several dramas in the 1980s, including “The Blue Lagoon” in 1980, and Franco Zeffirelli’s “Endless Love” in 1981.

In 1983, Shields abandoned her career as a model to attend Princeton University, where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in French literature. In the 1990s, Shields returned to films appearing in minor roles in films starring in the titular role of the sitcom “Suddenly Susan” which ran for four seasons between 1996 and 2000. Most recently, Shields has made appearances in other television shows, including “That ’70s Show” and “Lipstick Jungle.”
The event was sponsored by Escada, St. Barth Properties, St. Barth Tourism, Brahmin, Cezanne, Nest Seekers, Alex & Ani, Shannon Limeburner and Khari. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Bridgehampton Historical Museum.
