LAST RESORT: Lubov Azria invited starlets and stylists to her Beverly Hills home on Tuesday for a presentation of the BCBG Max Azria resort runway and ready-to-wear collections and Hervé Léger by Max Azria. “In New York we just present these looks on the hanger, and they’re really meant to be seen moving on models, so it made sense to do something at home, plus I love to entertain,” said the creative director, who narrated each look as models came prancing out of the pool house and around the patio. Guests like Disney star Debby Ryan and Emmanuelle Chriqui were offered their choice of straw hat to shade their faces from the late-afternoon sun. “It makes me want to go on vacation,” said Ryan, although she doesn’t have a break between filming her show “Jessie” and producing and recording her first album, which she described as a mash-up of Western and rock ’n’ roll. Chriqui is also having a productive summer, having just wrapped her first French-speaking role in “C’est Compliqué” and getting ready to launch an all-female action series she produced for Sony’s digital network Crackle.
