The Kennedy clan held a button-down rehearsal dinner Friday night ahead of this weekends wedding of Robert 'Bobby' Kennedy III and former CIA spook Amaryllis Fox.
The shindig at the historic beachside Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port on Cape Cod lured about 200 family members and hangers-on who munched on oysters, seafood and tuna freshly fished off Cape Cod and sipped Corona beer from the bottle in a tent built after day-long rains.
The Cape Cod chic dress code included blue jeans, beach shorts, sandals and sun dresses.
While it was an intimate affair, there were still plenty of boldfaced names in attendance, including Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and Bobby's stepmom Cheryl Hines.

The house was donated for use as an education center? To inspire public service?
Or to inspire liberalism? To inspire global warming zealots?
Ain’t liberals wonderful?
Amaryllis Fox? Really, baby? Shag now or shag later?
Hugh Hefner should have donated the moldering Playboy mansion for use as an education center. The taxpayers could have spiffed it up in perpetuity, and he could still have scheduled parties there.
That's because their motives and intentions are so pure!
Just ask them.....
As if anyone gives an Obama.
Good for them. Another couple of generations and young Kennedys might once again rediscover useful work. Reversion to the mean. In fact, I imagine many of today's young Kennedys already have, but they're not the ones we read about in the media because they're working rather than being celebrity dilettantes.
It is hard for trust fund families to instill a work ethic in rising generations. This is a very old story: shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves and all that. I understand the problem. Working for relative chump change at something you don't love is torture when your trust fund checks just keep rolling in. The pay isn't the problem; the problem is boredom when the spur of necessity is absent and you're looking at 40 hours of tedium a week at some task you really don't care for and don't need to do.
Status competition often becomes the substitute motivator. People will work ferociously hard to gain prestige, but that leads to its own problems and leads to nothing but futility and frustration if it's not coupled with genuine talent.
I have great respect for trust fund kids who bury themselves in a library and emerge decades later as distinguished historians, who live in a lab and do useful things in science, or who at least open up a creditable crunchy granola business in a little New England town. But for those of mediocre talent, wealth can be a trap. The Kennedys have provided too many examples.
Maybe they can add a wind farm offshore...
Wait, they IDed a spy? Who leaked? Plamegate 2 Kennedy Boogaloo
Status competition by mothers destroys the kids
How much money did Joe make running rum that it lasts four generations, spread out among god knows how many little cockroaches?
Scintillating prose. It sings.
Kids aren’t supposed to be trophies?
To get a big tax write-off, while retaining a lot of the functionality for the Kennedys.
You're just mad because you weren't invited. On the other hand, I was invited. And I had a wonderful time. Here's a picture of some of the swell Kennedy people I met there.
Well put. Your comment rings true.
The Chappaquiddick movie killed the Kennedy name forever!
