A Wednesday night at the Chateau? We’re all about it. In fact, we’re so all about it, we had not one, but two fun functions going on there! First, we stopped by the Contrarian New York Trunk Show in Penthouse 54 to visit with Designer Alexis Laken where we got a sneak peak of her Holiday and Resort collections. We loved hearing shoppers “ooh and aah” over the famous backless bibb dress (this hot little number dress has graced many a red carpet) and we can’t wait to get a showroom sample shipment of the adorable polka dot and star prints coming for Resort.
Next, we staffed up and braced ourselves for the Roman Luxe jewelry launch party co-hosted by Revolve Clothing and Karla Deras of Karla’s Closet. Despite a few slip-ups (it ain’t a party until someone breaks a glass), the event went smoothly as we greeted guests including Mena Suvari, Monet Mazur, Jessica Stroup, Beth Behrs, Jamie Chung, Arielle Kebbel, Briana Evigan and our favorite girls about town Brenna Egan, Jennifer Chan, Sydne Summer of Sydne Style, Francesca Vannucci and stylists Rhonda Spies, Stephanie Strate, Lindsay Zir, Saba Salehi, Karen Raphael, Lindsey Dupuis and Cherie Kilchrist. Groups of people were drinking and dancing when they weren’t crowded around the jewelry bar picking out their favorite pieces from Karla Deras’ first collaboration with Roman Luxe, "Power to the Python." We were so tired at the end, we forgot to ask if we could take home one of the beautiful floral displays that had been strewn about the suite dripping in Roman Luxe’s coveted jewels. Our only regret of the evening.
