6. Celebrity sightings

Was it when pop star Katy Perry quietly arrived to a party at South Pointe in Southampton or when actor/musician LL Cool J met with the crowd at Prime in Huntington? Whichever celebrity sighting you consider to be the biggest, 2012 saw a steady flow of reality show stars, classic sitcom actors, pop singers and other famous faces both in performance, doing appearances or just hanging out at Long Island clubs.

On Thursday, June 14, Hamptons Magazine co-sponsored a special event with Prime restaurant in Huntington and actor and hip-hop legend LL Cool J lent a hosting hand.

Called “A Gold Coast Affair,” the night took place at Prime, and included an auto show and a yacht show, as well as jewelry by Simone I. Smith that was presented by Shag (1370 Old Northern Blvd., Roslyn, 516-484-3133, shagnewyork.com) -- with the night benefiting both The American Cancer Society and The American Red Cross.

Of course, with Simone Smith being the wife of James Todd Smith (that's LL Cool J’s birth name) it made perfect sense that the rapper (also currently starring in CBS TV’s “NCIS: Los Angeles”) would take part in the event.

LL arrived with light security and posed for photographers, also making sure to stop, greet and take pictures with just about anyone who asked, moving around and through the crowd with a broad smile almost every step of the way.
