Party Season. The guests, the gowns, the giddy expectations — what are the ingredients of a perfect party? Here, Tara Summers recollects her parents' legendary parties and their many glamorous guests. When I look back on my childhood it's hard to identify a specific event.

She revealed the links between the film and her own difficult childhood in which she witnessed her mother's addiction to cocaine.
