It was a who’s who of Hollywood on Aug. 13, at the Della Femina ocean front mansion — the most exclusive end-of-summer soiree.

Claire Danes had quite the turnout for the world premiere of her new show Homeland at the screening hosted by Showtime and The Cinema Society. The evening was held at Jerry & Judy Della Femina’s gorgeous and sprawling estate in East Hampton. was there to catch a glimpse of the show’s first episode — and also speak to the star of the evening herself!
Claire plays Carrie Anderson, a CIA officer who she self-describes as “whip smart” — in hopes of uncovering a massive al Qaeda terrorist plot. The gripping 13-episode-season which premieres Oct. 2, comes from the producers and writers of Fox’s hit thriller series 24.

“It’s just so smart,” Claire says of her new show. “The quality of the writing is pretty explosive. I’m just awed with what they’re able to come up with but it’s really exciting and really engaging. The end of every episode is an insanely chilling cliff hanger.”

24 star Kiefer Sutherland, Claire’s husband Hugh Dancy, designer Mary-Kate Olsen, actress Gabourey Sidibe and music legend Paul McCartney were just some of the famous faces at the private event. Guests enjoyed delicious food by caterer to the stars Mary Giuliani while watching the episode on an outdoor poolside projector and continued the celebration at a bonfire on the home’s private beach.
