What Do the Stars Love About Designer Tory Burch? Find Out What They Said at Burch’s Rodeo Drive Opening

For Tory Burch‘s grand opening of her West Coast flagship store she enlisted a few of her close friends to help celebrate (and even blogged about it!), including Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Hailee Steinfeld, Emmy Rossum, Jaime King, and Camila Alves, dressed in Burch’s very own designs. With green hydrangeas arrangements placed throughout the 4,700 square-foot space, guests enjoyed Philly cheesesteaks (a homage to Burch’s hometown), spring rolls, and sugar-dusted doughnut bits, while they sipped on Champagne and Tory’s favorite cocktail—the Southside made with vodka, triple sec, fresh lime juice, and a sprig of lavender.

This may be Burch’s fourth boutique in Los Angeles and her 13th store in California, but it’s her very first Rodeo Drive location. “I think Rodeo is such an iconic location,” the designer told InStyle.com. “I never really dreamed of having a store here and when we started this company, we hoped that one day we would,” she added. Not only did she make that dream come true, but she even custom-designed the space with architect Daniel Romualdez and gave the brick and mortar location a personal touch, complete with black and white photos of the Burch family, flea market finds like tables and mirrors the designer scooped up while traveling in Paris and Morocco, and even needlepoint pillows adorned with quotes from Burch’s childhood, including “Everything begets thee to me.”

Within the the three-story boutique, Burch’s entire collection of ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes, jewelry, accessories, including her new fragrance, will be available to shop (not to mention the designer already has a loyal Rodeo Drive following). “I love [Tory's] clothing because it works for the every girl,” Decker told InStyle.com. “You could be a tomboy or an eclectic, crazy quirky style kind of girl or super preppy, and her clothes kind of speak to everyone.” To find what the others stars love about Burch, look through our gallery.

Meow! Miranda Kerr, Heather Graham, and More Celebrate Animal Print at the Opening of Roberto Cavalli’s New Boutique

The Just Cavalli store was awash with loud prints and a very fashionable crowd last night at the flagship boutique opening in New York City. Guests including Heather Graham and Miranda Kerr sipped on cocktails made with Roberto Cavalli Vodka while DJ Mad Marj spun tunes by M.I.A. and Katy Perry.

Designer Roberto Cavalli arrived with Kerr on his arm, and everyone flocked to congratulate him on the boutique’s grand opening. “Just Cavalli is so sexy, so young looking. I’m excited to see the young, bright American girls wearing Just Cavalli. They will understand it,” Cavalli told InStyle.com exclusively.

“He just has a great spirit about him,” Kerr, dressed in a floor-length animal-print Just Cavalli gown, told us. “His clothes fit and are wearable, but still sexy.” After exploring the store (which features one wall covered in floor-to-ceiling fringe and a suspended flight of stairs covered in transparent python print), guests took in the pre-fall runway show that followed next, where models emerged from the lower level, making a loop around the store and then outside onto the street for passers-by to see.

The collection was signature Cavalli, featuring richly colored leather and striking patterns, including animal print. “It is the usual for me. It is my beginning,” the designer said of why he often uses the vibrant pattern. “I take my animal print from the real photo of the animal that I shoot. That is the secret to my animal print!”
