Gwyneth Paltrow poses with Stella McCartney and models at her garden party.

Gwyneth Paltrow hosted a genteel garden party in the Hamptons to celebrate her first capsule collection with fashion designer Stella McCartney (Paul’s daughter). She posted a video of the event. Ever wonder who gets invited to these things?

Paltrow, 40, threw the “English Garden Party” last month before returning to Los Angeles and nearly getting killed riding her Vespa motor scooter.

The party was sponsored by her online company “Goop,” which specializes in food and nutrition. She posted a video from the event and it’s amazing to see the faces in the crowd.

Among the attendees were ex-Beatle Paul McCartney, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cameron Diaz and stylist Rachel Zoe.

Obviously, the video helps with the business tax deduction, but it also provides a rare glimpse into the lives of the rich and famous as they play lawn games, down English snacks and drinks and cavort with family and friends.

The collection includes blazers, jeans, trousers, handbags and shoes, buttondown shirts and cashmere sweaters. Prices, well, they’re a bit steep. A blazer will set you back around $1,900 while “exclusive black and navy jeans” cost around $700.

Back in Los Angeles, Paltrow created a heart stopping moment when she pulled out in front of a school bus on her Vespa scooter without looking and was nearly clipped. A fast-acting bus driver slammed on the brakes to avoid the collision. Her daughter was riding on the back.
