Mary Kate & Ashley Launch Bags, Party with InStyle

elizabeth-james-cheetah bag

InStyle celebrated Mary Kate and Ashley’s latest handbag collection for their Elizabeth and James line last night at the Penthouse of The Chateau with lots of LA’s familiar faces, along with a few from NY. The bag line looks great, which is no surprise as the girls have proven over the years time and time again they have a flawless eye for style. Below, some pics from the shindig, where I spent much of my night eating cupcakes (yes, cycling be damned!) and waxing poetic about Fruitvale Station, my favorite film from this year’s Sundance Film Festival, with the film’s lead actress (another fellow New Yorker) Malonie Diaz. Our old friend, Lina Kutsovskaya, who is now the Creative Director of Sephora, showed up as well, turns out Sephora is doing a perfume with the twins!

The amazing film directed by 26 year old new director Ryan Coogler. Impossible to watch without bawling like a baby. Even the trailer…
