LOS ANGELES — American Eagle Outfitters celebrated the opening of its Santa Monica, Calif., flagship last Thursday with a young Hollywood-filled shindig featuring T-shirts designed by Kirsten Dunst, Johnny Knoxville, Zach Braff, Mila Kunis, Jamie Kennedy and Elisha Cuthbert.
Kunis, Erika Christensen, Gabrielle Union, Brittany Snow, and Vanessa Lengies attended the bash, deejayed by "That 70s Show" star Danny Masterson. The event featured AE cookies and fruity cocktails, plus a clothing customization center and digital photo booths, both of which are available in the store year-round (sorry, no more open bar). The printed T-shirts, flip-flops, jeans and khakis were on full display in the 10,500-square-foot store, the company’s largest of its 698 stores nationwide.
"They’re totally getting me ready for spring break," raved Union as she shopped the racks.
Ten percent of sales of the 5,100 celeb-designed shirts, which sell for $19.50 for the next two weeks in Santa Monica, SoHo and San Francisco, will go to Jumpstart, a nonprofit learning program.
@zacposen's go-to holiday gift? Cookies! "I'll usually bake cookies and send them as a gift," said the designer, who recently released his cookbook "Cooking With Zac: Recipes from Rustic to Refined."

For @monsemaison’s pre-fall 2018 collection, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim honed in on the brand’s many signatures — men’s wear, which was tweaked and feminized through deconstruction, proportion play and lots of bare shoulders. See the rest of the photos on WWD.com #wwdfashion (📷: George Chinese)
On Friday night, @yohjiyamamotoofficial received the Design for Asia Lifetime Achievement Award in Hong Kong. The 75-year-old designer has been celebrated for many years and is best known for his dark and avant-garde tailoring. “In my long career, in design, architecture, [I’ve been to] so many parties, this is the very first time that I have such a warm feeling, I really appreciate this,” Yamamoto said. #wwdfashion (📷: @dominiquemaitre)

“I’m always a big champion of a female rapper, and I’m glad to see a new voice that feels unique and authentic that’s coming up, and I think we’re going to see more great things from her,” said @itsjeremyscott about @iamcardib, who performed at @moschino’s Art Basel Miami Beach party last night. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
@janellemonae’s “What’s Your Frequency?” room in @refinery29's #29Rooms made its debut this week at the opening of the Los Angeles art exhibit. “It’s about the ongoing conversation around mass surveillance, the weaponization of technology and cultural uniformity. My space was created so that we can come together and talk about the complexities of our humanity,” said Monáe. #wwdeye (📷: @bucknerphoto)
@pantone announced their Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet. Nearly 20 months after the musician Prince’s death, fashion is having a purple moment. Varying shades of purple appeared on spring or fall runways, from @christopherkane to @calvinklein. @gucci’s Alessandro Michele bathed his fall runway in ultra violet-colored light at one point. Pantone 18-3838 is meant to “push the boundaries of what inspires us to look upward and outward to the future.” #wwdnews #wwdfashion (📷: @kukukuba)
