Jayma Mays In Rebecca Minkoff – Smurf Week Kick Off Ceremony

Jayma Mays chose this adorable summery outfit whilst attending the Smurf Week Kick Off Ceremony in New York City yesterday.

The actress wore a sleeveless Rebecca Minkoff ‘Tatiana’ blouse in a pretty cabbage rose print, which she paired with coral Rebecca Minkoff ‘Hali’ shorts.

Jayma finished her look with nude Aldo ‘Filary’ pumps and Jamie Wolf rose gold ‘Aladdin Flower’ earrings.

At the World Premiere of “The Smurfs” movie, Jayma switched up her hairstyle by wearing it pin straight. She opted for swept up pretty romantic curls for this occasion.

This is such a cute outfit on her and totally perfect for a daytime event.

The pinky shades all look lovely against her skin and hair colour.

Thumbs up on the lip colour on this occasion.

Lauren Conrad In Rebecca Minkoff – Rebecca Minkoff Shop In Shop Event

Lauren Conrad attended Rebecca Minkoff’s Summer Cocktail event at Confederacy in LA last night wearing a pretty Rebecca Minkoff two-tone dress from the designer’s Spring collection.

She’s seen here modeling a Rebecca Minkoff bag from the event, but she arrived carrying a mustard crocodile print shoulder bag.

I fell in love with her trademark beachy waves.

Lauren was incredibly sweet and spoke to me about fashion, hair and her favourite summer trend.

On what she loves about Rebecca Minkoff: “She’s lady-like but with a hip factor, her style is very her.”

On trends she is currently excited about: “Seventies summer romance… sheer fabrics, long dresses, very romantic.”

On her favourite hair and make-up trends: “I just stopped by my hair stylist before coming here because I’d had tie-dye hair for about a week but since I was coming to a nice event, I thought I should tone it down, so there are tiny blue streaks in it right now. I was wondering if anyone would notice! I painted my nails tonight in the ombré style (dark to light shades of blue) and I know the trend of painting the ring finger a different colour to the rest of your nails. I like to carry nail polish strips when I travel in case they get chipped and then they’re so easy to repair. I feel like with nails, anything goes!”

Jayma Mays In Rebecca Minkoff – Rebecca Minkoff Shop In Shop Event

Jayma Mays looked super chic and on-trend in a purple Rebecca Minkoff outfit the Shop In Shop event in LA to celebrate the designer at Confederacy in LA last night.

She wore a fitted Rebecca Minkoff ‘Becky’ jacket and a Rebecca Minkoff puckered skirt.

Her accessories included an Elegantly Waisted orange snakeskin belt, a Rebecca Minkoff black crocodile clutch and black Jimmy Choo peep-toes.

Jayma chatted to me about what she loves about Rebecca Minkoff; sharing that she loves the bright, happy colours in the collection. She thinks Rebecca does the best pieces in flattering prints, which she’s found hard to find.

The ‘Glee’ actress and her stylist Ilaria Urbinati were kind enough share some insights on Jayma’s style:

On her favourite designers: “Burberry, Reem Acra, Brian Reyes, Brian Atwood shoes and Ippolita jewelry.”

On her favourite fashion moments: “Custom Burberry Prorsum at the 2010 Emmys , a chartreuse Brian Reyes dress at the Costume Designers Guild Awards and the outfit I wore to Fox’s All-Star Party 2010, which was just a cute plaid shirt with a hunter green skirt, neon yellow belt and gold Jimmy Choo’s. It was a fun look!”

On how her style changed since moving from Virginia to Los Angeles: “In Virginia I would wear jeans, vintage t-shirts and flip-flops all the time, it was horrible! I was just trying to look cute with no money so it was either Converse or flip flops. Now I feel like, if you have the opportunity to dress up, why not? I hardly ever do jeans anymore.”

Ilaria Urbinati describes Jayma’s style: “Jayma has really good personal taste, so that makes it easy! It’s quite East Coast Preppy, but now we’re a little dressier.”

On her summer essentials: “A Kate Spade basket weave bag that has a black bow on it that I carrying everything in – I use it almost every day, black ballet flats that are just classic and I can’t get enough of crisp white button-up shirts that are so essential because I can just throw them on and not think too much about it.”

Last night, I attended Rebecca Minkoff’s Shop in Shop/Summer Cocktails event at LA’s hip clothing store Confederacy.

Co-hosts Rebecca Minkoff and Agyness Deyn mingled with guests who browsed the newest collection of bags, shoes, clothes and accessories whilst sipping on yummy Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Rosé drinks.

In attendance were some of Young Hollywood’s finest, including Lauren Conrad, Shenae Grimes, Katie Cassidy, Jayma Mays and Busy Philips. Ashton Kutcher, Giovanni Ribisi and Chris Pine rounded out the men who came out to support their friend Danny Masterson, who co-owns Confederacy.

Rebecca’s cool collection of bags run the gamut from mini studded clutches in traffic light red and turquoise blue to cross-body bags in bright orange and stone grey featuring zippers and oversized tassels. I fell in love with her iPad and laptop cases, especially a turquoise one reading ‘nerd alert’ in fun gold writing.Read More…
