Ryan Kwanten, Anthony Kiedis, Rachel Bilson, And More Line Up For Phillip Lim


Every dude has his day—and the guys got theirs yesterday at Phillip Lim. “We’re so used to going to women’s events, so we wanted to turn it around and have women be the plus-ones tonight,” Lim said at a party for his Fall 2010 men’s collection at his West Hollywood boutique. Cue the typically abstruse inspiration statement (“This collection is bringing the wild into the city with a sense of adventure,” said Lim), the worth-the-drive draw (folk rocker Devendra Banhart, on hand to spin tunes), and the sustenance (cocktails and “Tuscan-themed” barbecue: lasagna cupcakes, ricotta mac ‘n’ cheese, pulled pork sandwiches). As for those cocktails, a little advance planning was in order. “I’m going to go to the bathroom now since I’m in a jumpsuit and I see lots of drinks,” joked host Cameron Silver, who recently wore a custom Phillip Lim tuxedo to the Met gala. Silver and guests like True Blood‘s Ryan Kwanten and Anthony Kiedis took in an intimate presentation of the men’s collection—but if they want pieces for themselves, they’d better be ready to fight for them. “I almost stole the backpack off the model’s back,” said Rachel Bilson (pictured with Lim). “It takes a real man to wear these clothes.” Or a woman?
