LOS ANGELES — Activewear maker Avia launched its retro and performance basketball collection last month with a late-night bash at Concorde, a popular Hollywood haunt.
Although the dress code called for sporty old-school gear, hipsters and a few starlets turned out in their own look of the evening — sexy jeans and black tops — as demonstrated by TV types Laura Prepon and Melissa Rivers. There were also stripes galore, from film actress Erika Christensen’s Victoria Secret tuxedo-stripe pants paired with a black tank top or a lesser-known guest in a vintage purple and black striped dress worn with Marc Jacobs pumps.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
