Escapist Fantasy

Celebs including Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley, Glee's Dianna Agron (left) and designers Christian Siriano and Charlotte Ronson avoided mayhem in the Hamptons over the weekend, opting instead for the sky-high penthouse of the Mondrian SoHo, where Carrera Sunglasses hosted a sun-soaked two-day party for VIPs and friends.

Badgley was overheard speaking about his plans to produce a record after he returns from an upcoming trip to Mexico. (Apparently, he can play any instrument but the drums....though we doubt that includes performing on a theremin or a didgeridoo!)

After chillaxing at the Carrera party--a gathering that also included activities such as morning yoga, eyebrow shaping and neck massages, Agron went out to celebrate the birthday of figure skater Johnny Weir with Vanessa Hudgens, Emma Roberts and Susan Sarandon (gotta love that Susan can still hold her own with the youngins). Apparently, Weir's birthday festivities didn't wrap until 7 a.m., so having a pair of sunglasses to hide the inevitable day-after eyebags must have been a welcome comfort for the Glee cheerleader.

The summer celebration, which has become a Carrera tradition, also featured goodies by a host of other luxury brands, including UV Vodka, SOUL by Ludacris and Venroy Australia. New York Insider was there enjoying it all to the bittersweet end, as the sun went down and (sadly) the sunglasses came off.
