Last night at the SoHo House in West Hollywood, Calif. the stars came out to celebrate Eric Wilson, InStyle's Fashion News Director. Hosted by the West Coast Editors of InStyle, Kiernan Shipka, Kelly Osbourne, Aimee Garcia, Amber Stevens, Sophia Bush, Brad Goreski, Sosie Bacon, George Kotsiopoulos, Cody Horn, and more were on hand to fête the occasion.

Guests gathered to toast to Wilson in the glamorous library-esque space, filled with white hydrangeas and roses. "Everyone looks so chic tonight!" Shipka (in Mary Katranzou) says. "I’ve always been super into fashion and always loved dressing up and flipping through magazines, so it was really fun to meet Eric." "I always feel a little star struck anytime I meet anyone someone like Eric," says Horn. "I always think ‘Oh my gosh, I have to really think about what I'm going to say and use big words!’ So it's exciting."

While many expressed their excitement to speak with Wilson, others were eager to ask him all their burning fashion questions. "I want to know one classic bottom piece that I would be able to wear with a bunch of tops. Would it be cool pants, or long skirt, or shorts? I want one piece for summer," Garcia says. Osbourne had more of a request for Wilson: "Can you please make all those ridiculous gladiator heeled boots go away? They try and make a sporty heel out of something that was never meant to be a heel. It is a boxing boot and does not need to be a heel—they are flat for a reason."

With giant picture windows overlooking Sunset Boulevard, it was hard not to get lost in the gorgeous view. "I'm really a child of both cities, New York and Los Angeles," states Bush, who was thrilled to share a piece of her other home with WIlson. "I love both places and I'm always happy when New Yorkers come here and get a taste of Los Angeles."
