No one knows how to assemble a squad like my girl Sophie. She’s gifted with a knack for bringing people together and making magic, whether it’s a birthday party, a ski weekend in Vermont or most recently, this awesome cover story for Modern Luxury’s Beach magazine. It was such an awesome day styling everyone and being featured in the shoot myself. The kind of day that reaffirms “I love my job.” Highlights for me? Seeing Lulu Frost designer Lisa Salzar and her husband, dancer & creative director Marlon Taylor-Wiles decked out in Peter Pilotto and Missoni in a canoe or dodging waves to help Sophie get the perfect self-portrait in a gorgeous and LARGE Carolina Herrera gingham gown. It’s always a fun time with a lot afoot at the Elgorts house in the summer.
Whenever I’m out East, I love disconnecting. Sometimes I have service, sometimes I don’t. And maybe because of this, that quality time with the people I love. I don’t really “go out” here. Friends houses, yea. Maybe an event. Cooking, bottle(s) of wine and really enjoying beach life. Even moreso in the fall! I also feel like a kid again here and have a high propensity for getting into mischief with a close friend Patrick, who’s like a brother to me, whether it’s beaching the car, speeding down back roads or being rambunctious at the Devon fireworks, Hamptons memories with him are some of the moments I’ve laughed the hardest in my life. I have friends that grew up spending their summers in the French Riviera that are so excited to see the Hamptons and I think “Wow, really?!” I guess that’s pretty dope.
Sophie’s story captures that perfectly. Here’s a peak of some of the shots I’m in and my feature PLUS a bonus pool photo that didn’t run. Sophie definitely flexed her director skills coordinating all of us in these groups shots. But be sure to check Beach mag’s digital issue or pick it up at storefronts if you’re out in the Hamptons — trust me, my feature mates’ stories are incredible.
