Kristin Davis, Hailee Steinfeld and Michelle Monaghan were among the guests who celebrated Burch's success in the fashion industry and even revealed a few of the designer's hidden talents. "I would take advice from her any day," said longtime friend Davis. "And she's such a great traveler. You've got to look at her blog." Extracurricular activities aside, what's next for the Tory Burch brand? "We're talking about creating a fragrance and a collection for the home," the designer told us. "I have three sons and three brothers, so I'm also definitely feeling the pressure to do a men's line!"
