Last night, celebrity stylist Nicole Chavez (her first client was InStyle contributor Rachel Bilson) hosted a chic fete for LOFT’s Fall 2010 Style Studio, where she styled three looks. “I wanted to keep it California chic because I am a California girl,” Chavez told us. Kristen Bell and Emmanuelle Chiqri got a sneak peek at the line’s modern architectural shapes, new fabrics (like tweed) and gorgeous feminine floral prints. “I think LOFT has been coming out with a lot of great stuff recently. I love that almost everything is striped and I’m dying to have all the hats,” Bell told us. “There is also a fantastic pair of equestrian over-the-knee boots that I am loving.” Our favorite piece from the collection? The amazing faux fur bolero that LOFT’s Senior Fashion Director, Alia Ahmed-Yahia, wore. Click on the gallery to see what pieces the stars wore from LOFT’s fall collection.
