Last night we swung by celebrity magnet hotel Chateau Marmont to catch the launch bash for LA blogger Karla Deras' new Roman Luxe jewelry collection, co-hosted by Revolve Clothing. A mix of local blogstars, celebs and tastemakers turned up in droves to marvel over the minimalist 12-piece range, which was creatively displayed on greenery-induced jewelry hangers.
After rehydrating with themed drinks curated by Kanon Organic Vodka (the "Karla's Kanon Crush" was a fan favorite), we scanned the crowd and spotted stars Mena Suvari, Monet Mazur, Jamie Chung and Topher Grace mingling and dancing to the tunes provided by It girl Binki Shapiro. Deras' pals (and fellow big money bloggers) Julie Sarinana of Sincerely Jules, Rachel Nguyen of That's Chic and Olivia Lim of Lust for Life also stopped by to pay their respects—and to take obligatory pretty girl Instagram photos.
