BEVERLY HILLS HIGH: Lorena Sarbu presented her resort 2014 collection at her Beverly Hills home on Wednesday for celebrity fans Rhona Mitra, Radha Mitchell, Minnie Driver, Odessa Rae, Cara Santana and Cynthia Kirchner. Actors Danny Huston and Topher Grace were also in the mix at the luncheon, cohosted by stylist Deborah Waknin. “I wanted the show to reflect my style, so what better way than at home? I just hope the models don’t have trouble with the cobblestones,” said the designer, who held certain pieces from the outdoor patio presentation for her guests to wear. “It’s very elegant,” said Mitra of her black tea-length dress. Kirchner, meanwhile, already had her eye on a fuchsia gown for an event next week in the Hamptons, and stylist Jessica Paster immediately pulled a few gowns for Christina Applegate. As a parting gift, each guest took home a metal and leather belt used in the show.
