If every girl loves to shop, then the Beverly Hills, Calif., home of The A List founder Ashlee Margolis was exactly what fashionable dreams were made of Thursday night. Uber stylish beauties like Lea Michele, who was in celebratory spirits (“We get invited to a lot of events, but it’s so nice to get to go to ones that you feel so comfortable at,” she told InStyle), stepped into Margolis’s abode for an evening of no-frills girl talk and, of course, plenty of opportunity to nab some new closet staples.
So, what, exactly, was up for grabs? The Imagine Vince Camuto Spring Shopping Soiree featured a glorious selection of goodies, including Vince Camuto’s new Imagine Footwear collection, freshly minted pieces from Michael Stars’s spring line, Caudalie’s new Vinosource portfolio, and customizable gems from Iconery, some of which Michele rocked alongside a fanciful Maya Brenner sharktooth necklace. For the Scream Queens star, the occasion called for a sleek all-black getup that consisted of a plunging leotard, an over-the-shoulder coat, wide-legged trousers (all from her best friends’ nearby store, Switch), and Vince Camuto shoes, naturally.
Michele was on hand with former Glee co-star Becca Tobin (below, right), who spent the day indulging in some R&R with the brunette and rocked a Michael Stars outfit. “We just came from the spa and we had the best time, Tomoko [Japanese Spa], is that how you say it?” Michele quipped. “We loved it! Massages and then they bring you Sugarfish [sushi]. It’s really such a great setup. It’s really amazing. We were like transported. It was incredible.” Tobin kept her soothing energies going with her relaxed leather look. “It’s the most comfortable thing in the world,” she told us. “You’re like faking people into being chic. Their material is so soft and so comfy, and the flowy pants are easy, and you can eat as much as you want.”
Fellow Hollywood favorite Olivia Culpo (above, left) caught up with the duo and turned to pastels in a soft pink wrap dress with a thigh-high slit and pointed-toe pumps. Don’t think she was the only one to turn heads, though. Parks and Recreation beauty Rashida Jones (below, left) spent time with Kristen Bell (below, right), who, together, rung in spring with Jones in a gingham print shirt with matching linen high-waisted pants and Bell in a super easy-to-replicate white sleeveless top with light-wash jeans and sparkly silver pumps.
Emma Roberts (below) wowed, too, and debuted a fresh new red ‘do along with her ‘70s-era ASOS ruffled blouse, Mother jeans, and Vince Camuto pumps. “Tonight we just wanted to do something sleek, and kind of Jessica Rabbit turned into the inspiration for the hair and we deepened the lip color,” she told InStyle. Mission accomplished. As for the festivities themselves, Roberts was nothing but smiles. “It’s just so comfortable and fun,” she noted, adding, “You can kind of catch up with everyone and seeing what’s new. I love when it feels casual and not stuffy.”
Meanwhile, Shameless star Sasha Alexander (below, left) and Undateable’s Minnie Driver (below, right) were inseparable as the two actresses caught up and chatted about their relaxed style and summer plans. Alexander kept it sporty in a caramel-toned Acne jacket, a Michael Stars blouse, distressed Current Elliott jeans, and Jenni Kayne shoes while Driver, who expressed her love for all things Michael Stars, rocked head-to-toe Prada in a white, ruffled dress and a lavender clutch. “[Michael Stars] is super comfortable and beautiful,” she told InStyle. “I have a place at the beach and it’ll be all I wear this summer—that really soft, thin denim is really beautiful.”
Time to prep for warmer days ahead, stat.
