Born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, Sutton is a southern debutante-turned-Beverly Hills-socialite. In her early 20s, Sutton moved to New York City as an aspiring professional ballet dancer. She eventually became the Cunningham Dance Foundation’s Director of Development and the Augusta Ballet’s Executive Director. Sutton sits on various boards in New York City, Los Angeles, and Augusta, including the prestigious American Ballet Theatre. She was also named by The Salonierre as a Top Party Host in America, alongside Oprah and Michelle Obama. Sutton married childhood friend Christian in 2000 and they have three children: daughter Porter and sons Philip and James. Sutton and Christian divorced several years ago, and she is making the most of her newfound freedom. In addition to owning and operating a boutique in West Hollywood called, appropriately, SUTTON, she recently moved into her new home in Bel Air and, staying true to her Southern roots, purchased an all-electric pickup truck.
