What to Know About Michael Rubin’s White Party in the Hamptons

It’s hard to name just one noteworthy guest who attended the Fourth of July White Party hosted by the business mogul Michael Rubin and his fiancé, the model Camille Fishel, this year. Tom Brady, Kim and Khloé Kardashian, Megan Fox, Drake and Emily Ratajkowski were only some of the celebrities in bright white outfits who flitted about the couple’s sprawling Long Island estate on Thursday, rubbing elbows and generating content galore.

It was the fourth edition of Mr. Rubin and Ms. Fishel’s annual Independence Day bash in the Hamptons where bodycon dresses reign supreme. Paparazzi had lined up outside their property’s manicured hedges to catch a glimpse of the black SUVs ferrying A-listers who came to fraternize on the tennis court, which had been transformed into an ultraexclusive nightclub for the event. Reporters, including from The New York Times, were not permitted to attend, and organizers hired their own photographer.

“Imagine walking into Liv Miami,” Ms. Fishel, 33, said in an interview. “You don’t even know you’re on a tennis court.”

The Gatsby-esque soiree was held at the 2-acre, 8,000-square-foot oceanfront mansion in Water Mill, N.Y., that Mr. Rubin bought for $50 million in 2021, according to the Real Deal. The property is flanked by views of Mecox Bay on one side, and ocean vistas on the other.

Some 400 people made the cut for this year’s guest list, 300 of whom received invitations in the form of lithographs designed by the visual artist George Condo. (Ms. Fishel met Mr. Condo in 2013 as a hostess at a West Village restaurant where Mr. Condo was a regular.) A much smaller group received invitations that were framed, personally painted and addressed by name by Mr. Condo.
