Clinton rubs shoulders with the stars
The Clintons have celebrity friends in high places
Far away from the political heat in Washington, President Clinton has spent the weekend mixing with celebrities from the world of fashion and entertainment in New York's Long Island.
Celebrity guests included the singer Billy Joel, actress Julie Andrews and film maker Blake Edwards.
At an informal reception, which included live music from Hootie and the Blowfish, the Clintons hugged each other in front of 1,500 guests.
And Mr Clinton told his audience that he believed he was doing a good job in the White House.
Actor and host Alec Baldwin said: "I'm a loyal Democrat, I hope to die a Democrat."
Earlier, guests had paid $5,000 each to attend a reception for the Clintons hosted by orchestra conductor Jonathan Scheffer and his companion Christopher Barley.
The testimony will be relayed live on video from the White House to the federal court house, and will also be recorded for those jurors who cannot be present.
There have been reports that Miss Lewinsky has handed over crucial evidence to the investigators.
Mr Clinton has said he will answer prosecutors' questions about Monica Lewinsky "completely and truthfully".
