Hillary Clinton has announced her intention to ‘shuffle the pack’ to help the beleaguered middle classes but when it comes to Hillary Clinton’s own fundraising efforts the deck seems pretty firmly stacked in favour of the rich and powerful.
These exclusive pictures taken by Daily Mail Online show guests arriving at the Water Mill, Long Island home of Selma and Artie Rabin who hosted a fundraiser for Mrs Clinton on Saturday evening. Rabin is an apparel company magnate and the co-owner of the Brooklyn Nets basketball team.
Mrs Clinton arrived first with her entourage in a blacked out SUV that turned out to be by far the most modest car of the day.
While some guests opted for a limousine drop off, a Maserati, a Bentley, a vintage Mercedes worth $150,000, a Jaguar and a Porsche were among the impressive array of luxury cars to roll up at the Rabins’ imposing home. Photo Macfarlanes for MailOnline.com

Irina Kolesnikova. St Petersburgh Ballet Theatre at the London Coliseum. August 2015.

The renowned St Petersburg Ballet Theatre continues its 2015 international tour with its London Coliseum season. Internationally acclaimed Irina Kolesnikova brings together guest artists of the Mariinsky Theatre, the Bolshoi Theatre and the Royal Ballet’s own Vadim Muntagirov in a spell-binding production of Swan Lake. Surely the most famous and beautiful of all classical ballets, Swan Lake is the classic love story between Prince Siegfried and the Swan Princess Odette. From the iconic lakeside 'white act' to the visually stunning palace ballroom, this is the story of lovers divided by the villainous sorcerer Rothbart and true love conquering all. Classical ballet at its best, wrapped in Tchaikovsky’s glorious and unforgettable music, this full-length ballet is accompanied by The St Petersburg Ballet Orchestra. With lavish costumes, beautiful sets and a company of 55, this magnificent production is not to be missed.
