is the subject of a new DelMonico Books tome that came out last week, “Blue Dream and the Legacy of Modernism in the Hamptons.”
The modernist marvel was just profiled in the Wall Street Journal’s Mansion section.
We hear the event was in celebration of Taubman and Summers’ May wedding, and that guests included society architect Peter Marino, former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, former Sears CEO Eddie Lampert, John and Susan Hess, billionaire developer Steven Roth and his producer wife, Daryl, Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Dr. Dana Blumberg, Chicago tycoon Neil and Kimberly Bluhm, and former Barney’s chairman Richard Perry and his designer wife, Lisa, among others.
Spies said the party cost a cool $1 million.
“There was a tent in the garden with a singer and a classic big band,” said a source. “Champagne flowed and huge tins of beluga caviar were everywhere. A fun after-party was held in the house.” And, “because of the high-profile guests, there was lots of security.”
Blue Dream was the brainchild of Taubman’s beloved late art collector wife, Julia, and named after a strain of weed favored by her author pal, Elmore Leonard.
Summers did not respond to a request for comment from Page Six.
Taubman’s father was mall magnate and art collector, A. Alfred Taubman, who famously bought Sotheby’s in the ’80s and took the biz public, and was also caught up in a subsequent auction world scandal.
