Hurricane Irene is ruining everything! Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller were all set to host a party for the premiere of Tanner Hall, a new film starring the soon-to-be-Dragon–Tattooed Rooney Mara and written by the designer’s daughter, Tatiana von Furstenberg. There was to be a screening, followed by dinner at Nobu, and a party at Capri, that Southampton hotel made up to be a super-spiffy motel or something. We were excited!
Alas, it was not to be. The weather is moving in and it looks like everything this weekend will be, um, a wash.
At least we got a nice correspondence from the hosts.
Dear Mr. Nate Freeman,
Unfortunately, due to the predicted hurricane, we have all agreed to cancel the TANNER HALL screening and dinner in Southampton this Saturday.
We are very sorry for any inconvenience and are equally disappointed not to be able to show you this wonderful film.
Diane and Barry
And to think, by tomorrow night we could have been hunkered down in a hotel room, slamming whiskey with Jay McInerney as the world washed away. Another time, perhaps.
