Blasblog: Trenchcoat Teases On The L.E.S.
Jen Brill and Chrissie Miller were a little disappointed when they showed up at the Thompson LES hotel on Thursday night to celebrate the debut of Shoshanna Gruss and Charlotte Ronson’s swimwear collaboration, Made With Love. “Shoshanna promised me that she would be wearing one of the bikinis with high heels and a trench coat. Major letdown,” Brill sighed. Then Miller added, “And now she’s dressed up in a pink prom dress. What a tease.” Perhaps they were the only friends who needed such a guarantee to pound down to the L.E.S., because it seemed as though Gruss and Ronson’s other fans—Lindsay Price, Alexandra Richards, Lissy Trullie, and Ronson matriarch Ann Dexter-Jones, included—were more than happy to see the fully clothed designers. True to the name, the collaboration was an amiable effort. “Not a single fight between the two of us,” bragged Gruss of the fabric research, designing, and fit process. “It was like I was another sibling—which wouldn’t be hard for Charlotte, I guess. Ya know, since she’s one of ten.” Seriously! By the end of the night Miller’s spirits had lifted. “Are you kidding me? Is that Jill Zarin?” she enthused (without a shred of irony) when she spotted the Real Housewives of New York City star. “Someone take my picture with her.”
