When Gwyneth Paltrow, a glistening pile of hay and angel tears, does something, she does it right. So it should come as no surprise that the garden party she hosted in the Hamptons this summer — as some sort of promotional something-something between her lifestyle website Goop and the designer Stella McCartney — was an affair for the ages.

Welcome, would you like something to drink? (Imagine being a waiter at that party. Imagine!)

Here are your hosts, Gwyneth and Stella.

Enjoy yourself! There's much to do! There's croquet.

There's also dance-croquet.

Or you can play badminton with Naomi Watts.

Lots of fun people are here! There are models.

Who like to pose.

Sarah Jessica Parker is having a grand old time.

Chris Martin says hello.

Rachel Zoe has a hat.

There's a live band!

Gwyneth and her mom, Blythe Danner, are dancing to the music!

Cameron Diaz thinks these tiny beers are wonderful.

Hey look who showed up.

OK, time to go. The hosts kiss goodbye.

What a lovely garden party! Here's the whole thing:
