Lupita Nyong’o Named World’s Most Beautiful

-------

2014 MTV Movie Awards - ArrivalsLupita Nyong’o has a growing awards collection (including an Oscar), but she “never dreamed” she would be named People magazine’s Most Beautiful Person. The 12 Years a Slave star and Lancôme spokeswoman appears on this month’s cover with her trademark cropped hair, a sparkly necklace, and her perpetual smile. “I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen,” she told People. Growing up, her idea of beauty was “light skin and long, flowing, straight hair…Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess.” Now her natural beauty is not only celebrated but further enhanced by her innate elegance, humility, and originality. Nyong’o joins an impressive roster of past winners including Julia Roberts, Beyoncé, Jennifer Aniston, Halle Berry, and Angelina Jolie.

Elisabeth Weinstock’s New Home for Him, and Her

-------

Informed by the ethos of “him, her, and home,” interior designer-turned-accessory designer Elisabeth Weinstock will bow her first store in West Hollywood on Monday. After years spent working on interiors projects, Weinstock, who counts Jennifer Aniston, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and Naomi Campbell among her fans, branched out and crafted an exotic skin jewelry box. It was this that got her into the accessories biz and, with the help of L.A. store Maxfield, she realized there was quite a market for her high end vision of sleek, understated cases and bags. Her collection, which is produced locally, is one that addresses today’s modern needs—for instance, there are plenty of tech accessories. But there are a few kitsch and novelty items, too. “I love creating things that are off the beaten path—a tampon box, a condom box, even a dopp kit as a clutch,” the designer says.

With her interiors experience at play, Weinstock repurposed a 1930s house to achieve an 1,800 square-foot abode for her thoughtful designs. The new store is divided into three sections: The first is a “man cave,” which features Weinstock’s bestselling dopp kits (most popular in boa and watersnake) and humidors, along with a croc football and anaconda boxing gloves—ideal for the guy who really does have everything. “There’s a customer that’s hungry to find something new, something different that’s made like an everyday object,” she reasons. The more feminine “boudoir” area offers an elevated take on the cosmetics case, a crossbody bag, a wallet, and a clutch in a range of skins. Finally, there’s a home, or “living room” section, where shoppers can find custom coffee tables (one of which is shown in viper), stacking boxes, and the jewelry boxes upon which the brand was built. “Without sounding too cliché, it’s modern and edgy but still everyday,” Weinstock says of the space. Not cliché at all—in fact, it mimics the very spirit of the collection.

Elisabeth Weinstock’s new store will open on Monday at 8159 W. 3rd Street, West Hollywood, CA; www.elisabethweinstock.com.

Bag Lunch

-------

As standard logic goes, being called a “bag lady” is a bad thing. But yesterday, at the sprawling Beverly Hills home of socialite Shanna Brooks (which is also Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s former love nest), the term was one of endearment at the ninth annual P.S. Arts Bag Lunch.

“There are worse ways to spend an afternoon,” mused How I Met Your Mother actress Becki Newton of stylists George Kotsiopoulos and Elizabeth Stewart’s yearly designer handbag auction sponsored by Dior Beauty, which raises funds for the L.A.-based arts education organization. With Jimmy Choo, Mulberry, and Ferragamo bags on offer, starting at 60 percent off their standard retail prices, we would have to agree with the actress. Naturally, Newton and fellow attendees, including designer Magda Berliner, artist Kimberly Brooks, and Two Broke Girls star Beth Behrs all clamored to get in on the for-charity deals.

“I have that sample sale mentality,” Newton explained. “So I kept doing laps to see what I could find and by the time I got back to the ones that I wanted they were gone.” Not everyone left empty-handed. Kristin Davis (pictured), who has lent her name as a host of the event since its inception, went home with a muted blue leather Chanel tote at the advice of Stewart (her stylist and the event’s co-founder). “I have a blue Chanel and it goes well with jeans,” Stewart said of the classic choice. “And I envy it!” said Davis. The most coveted (and fought over) piece of the day, however, turned out to be a brown ostrich bag by Tom Ford, which went for $6,000. By auction’s end, the crowd raised nearly $200,000 for P.S. Arts. And for one afternoon, at least, being called a bag lady was a badge of honor.

Jen’s Jeans

-------

A crowd turned out uptown at Bloomingdale’s last night for the launch of Hoyle Jackson, a new line of denim and basics by stylist twin sisters Nina and Clare Hallworth and costume designer Geoffrey Roiz. Among the group was Jennifer Aniston, who the Hallworths count as a client, along with the likes of Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, Reese Witherspoon, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Kirsten Dunst, to name a few. It was their impressive roster of clients that prompted them to create Hoyle Jackson.

“We created this line out of necessity for clients we couldn’t find things for,” says Roiz, the brand’s founder, who has costumed films like Tropic Thunder and Spider-Man 3. “People are looking for a uniform—something that is simple and clean.” To fill the void, they designed jeans made from Japanese selvedge denim, twill trousers, and a handful of button-down shirts. It looks like a mission accomplished here; Aniston, known for her casual jeans and T-shirt style, looked eager to don denim from the label.
