Maria, Angelena

-------


Considering the canopy print for pre-fall was created from a photo of the sun setting over Melrose Place, it feels fitting that Maria Cornejo opened her new boutique in Los Angeles. “The way the clothes are and my sensibility in fashion is very laid-back, and I think it really fits the L.A. lifestyle,” the designer said at a fête to toast her newest Zero + Maria Cornejo location last night. Angelenas like Katherine Ross, Louise Roe, and Liseanne Frankfurt, all on hand, seemed to agree. They mingled in the new shop, one minimal enough to let the architectural collections speak for themselves. “There’s enough design in the clothes that the store doesn’t have to super-design-y,” Cornejo (inset, right, with Magda Berliner) explained. “It’s an organic space, and personally, I like spaces like this that can morph and keep constantly changing.”

Fall 2010 was on the racks, but in the spirit of change and evolution, Cornejo already had Fall 2011 in mind. As with seasons past, pics snapped on the designer’s iPhone will eventually become the collection’s prints, and her current mood board suggests the beachy, California state of mind isn’t one she’s abandoning anytime soon. “There’s a picture of the end of summer on my board right now that’s going to be a print,” she said. “It’s this great, nostalgic moment of three girls dancing on the beach at dusk. And since they’re all taken with my iPhone, they’re all very personal.”

Kate Bosworth And Rachel Bilson
Welcome Vanessa Bruno To L.A.

-------

L.A.’s been receiving a steady stream of Euro imports this week. Mulberry’s Emma Hill blew into the Chateau Marmont on Tuesday for a dinner and pool party, and last night at the Chateau, designer Vanessa Bruno and friends were fêting her new West Hollywood store—her first in the U.S. The shop, which will carry Bruno’s collection, accessories, and Athé diffusion line, doesn’t open officially until August 5, but a few high-profile fans can barely wait. “I’m so excited that she’s opening in L.A. I can’t even tell you,” said Kate Bosworth. “She’s so connected to wanting to bring out confidence and inner beauty. It’s a passion of hers and exciting for all of us.”

Around her, Angelenas like Tara Subkoff, Liberty Ross, and Atlanta de Cadenet and fellow Frenchie Julie Delpy sipped Champagne and cocktails. The dress code of the evening? Bruno, of course—”I’m actually wearing one of her skorts tonight—and I’m feeling it,” Rachel Bilson said. Even the guys got in on the act: Stylist George Kotsiopoulos showed off a bowtie that designer Magda Berliner had fashioned for him from a Bruno lace wrist gauntlet. “Men are lucky that way,” he said. “We could be in rags, but you put on a tie and you’re set.”

“I love the fact that different girls, known and unknown, are wearing my clothes and feeling comfortable and confident,” said the guest of honor. “L.A. is a melting of all different types of girls. There’s a real Americana, Californian spirit here.” The real Californians—new and native—tucked into strip steak and halibut and then, at the end, birthday cake—Bruno, it turned out, had more than one reason to celebrate.

los angeles fashion week: bohemian rhapsody in beverly hills

-------

Four-year-old Coco Arquette seems to be a star in the making. Last night, at the Beverly Hills launch of Propr, a new clothing line created by her father, David Arquette, and Ben Harper, not only did she steal the spotlight from the likes of Heidi Klum and Cindy Crawford, but she was the talk of the party thanks to a series of impromptu sashays (with pals Harper and Laura Dern’s daughters) down the runway. Said runway was right by the swimming pool, the better to showcase a display of synchronized swimming—to the tune of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody that preceded the show, which was watched by Vincent Gallo, Magda Berliner, Rosanna Arquette, and Jamie Lee Curtis. As for the clothes, they were streamlined basics for men and women that fell into the space between H&M and Banana Republic.
