NEW YORK, May 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- This Memorial Day Weekend, DuJour Publisher Jason Binn along with Aurae Lifestyle, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City and Zenith Watches, toasted summer cover star Dakota Fanning out in the Hamptons at the magazine's annual Memorial Day Kick-Off party.
On the heels of George Filopoulos's purchase of Gurney's Montauk Yacht Club and Resort on Saturday, May 26, the annual summer bash offered celebrity guests light bites such as mini quiches, crab cakes and sliders, along with Whispering Angel Rosé, provided by Paul Chevalier that was flowing the whole day. Music by Coco Robert, aka Coco The DJ, kept party goers dancing for hours. The soirée served as a viral campaign ahead of the launch of Jim Allen's Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, set to open June 28.
The true star of the party, Fanning, was sparkling in a floral-printed Cinq à Sept dress and Christian Louboutin heels, offering a sophisticated and sweet summer style. CEO of Swiss watch manufacturer Zenith Watches, Julien Tornare, presented the Alienist star with an elegant Elite Ladies Moon Phase with Diamonds wristwatch, which she kept on her wrist while posing for pictures and mingling with guests throughout the party. Notable attendees included Fanning's boyfriend Henry Frye, designer Andrew Warren and former Commissioner of the NYCPD Raymond Kelly.
The summer cover was photographed by Francesco Carrozzini and styled by Deb Watson in New York City. It was shot shortly before the June release of Ocean's 8, which Fanning stars in alongside Sandra Bullock, Rihanna, Cate Blanchett and Anne Hathaway. Fanning has also been getting rave reviews for her role in The Alienist, which she plays New York City's first female police detective.

Since 1865, Zenith has been guided by authenticity, daring and passion in pushing the boundaries of excellence, precision and innovation. Soon after its founding in Le Locle by visionary watchmaker Georges Favre-Jacot, Zenith gained recognition for the precision of its chronometers, with which it has won 2,333 chronometry prizes in just over a century and a half of existence: an absolute record. Famed for its legendary 1969 El Primero calibre enabling short-time measurements accurate to the nearest 1/10th of a second, the Manufacture has since developed over 600 movement variations. Today, Zenith offers new and fascinating vistas in time measurement, including 1/100th of a second timing with the Defy El Primero 21; and a whole new dimension in mechanical precision with the world's most accurate watch, the 21st century Defy Lab. Energized by newly reinforced ties with a proud tradition of dynamic, avant-garde thinking, Zenith is writing its future… and the future of Swiss watchmaking.
