The day after his girlfriend’s audition tape surfaced online, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Ricki Noel Lander were photographed Thursday walking arm in arm into the Allen & Co. Media Conference in Sun Valley, Idaho. As it does every year, this week’s event attracted an A-list roster of media, business, and tech moguls, including News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch, Microsoft’s Bill Gates, Washington Post Co. CEO Donald Graham, Hewlett Packard CEO Meg Whitman, IAC/InterActive-Corp.’s Barry Diller, DreamWorks Animation boss Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Universal Studios president Ron Meyer. The noticeably slimmer Kraft, 71, looked more laid back than usual, swapping his usual blue suit and pocket square for a golf shirt, jeans, and a pair of aviator sunglasses. Lander, 32, meanwhile, who was clad in a leopard-print bikini in the audition tape, was more demurely dressed in jeans and a jacket.
