MALIBU—Model/actress Joy Bryant's globe-trotting ways have translated into her inspired clothing line, Basic Terrain, which was co-created by her husband and travel partner, David Pope. Now the worldly beauty can add the Malibu Country Mart location of luxury boutique Curve (3835 Cross Creek Road) as a stockist of her brand and the shop is celebrating this Tuesday evening with a fashionable event. From 5-8pm, Bryant will be on-hand to launch her line and offer styling tips while a pop-up Urban Decay beauty bar provides guests with mini-makeovers.
