Brangelina fly in for Katrina party

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie hit the Hamptons this weekend. Tribeca Film Fest co-founders Jane Rosenthal and her husband Craig Hatkoff threw a dinner party at their Hamptons home to help promote and raise funds for Pitt's efforts to help rebuild Katrina-devastated New Orleans. The intimate four-hour soiree was attended by about 70 people, including Christie Brinkley, Ellen Barkin, Donna Karan, L.A. Reid and Andre Balazs. The New Orleans-inspired buffet menu included crabcakes, salmon, lamb, lemon pound cake and grilled peaches. Jolie was in white pants and a matching white long-sleeve top, and Pitt wore all back, including a tie. Cocktails started at about 7 p.m. on the deck, followed by dinner under a white tent. As dinner wound down, Pitt made a speech. Pitt and Jolie were the last to leave at about 11 p.m., leaving the Hamptons the same way they arrived - by helicopter. "It was lovely," a fellow partygoer said. "It was very low-key. It was just a great way for Brad to promote the great things he's doing."
