Coco Rocha, model fulfilled an item on her bucket list this month—horseback riding in Australia’s Blue Mountains.

“My husband James and I stayed on the 4,000-acre Wolgan Valley resort, which feels sort of like a luxury Australian safari in the middle of the outback. I’d recommend a stay here to anyone looking for beautiful surroundings and a little bit of adventure. Overlooking the three sisters in the Blue Mountains of Australia, you wouldn’t believe that we are only a few hours outside of the city of Sydney here, on our way to Wolgan Valley ranch for a two-day retreat.”

“On horseback in Wolgan Valley, which is nestled between the Wollemi and The Gardens Of Stone National Parks. Yes, I demanded that my horse have the same hair color as me. What I didn’t expect was that his hair would be in way better condition!”

Kyle DeWoody, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Grey Area enjoyed some time in the Hamptons with friends.

“Here, a family portrait pre-Liberace party featuring, from left to right: Carlton DeWoody, yours truly, Laura Flam, Joe Sheftel, and Ruffian designers Claude Morais and Brian Wolk. Thanks to my vintage stash in the attic everyone here and the guests who joined us were appropriately sequined, ruffed, tasseled, ascoted or kimonoed.”
