Krysten Ritter: The Cool Story Behind Her Navy DressJul 3, 2012 @ 2:00 pm
Every dress has a story, including the stretch navy dress with Swarovski crystals-studded shoulders that Krysten Ritter wore to DJ at Dentyne’s Split2Fit event last week. “It was custom-made for me,” the actress told InStyle.com. “It’s pretty amazing, and it’s like wearing Spanx!” The body-conscious design is by Chauncy Villeroy, a Los Angeles company so new it hasn’t even put out a collection yet. “We’re so happy that she loves it, it brightened our whole week,” said Alexandria Hardesty, the label’s senior designer. Hardesty first met Ritter as the wardrobe supervisor on Ritter’s film L!fe Happens, and reconnected at a chance meeting in Bed Bath & Beyond. “I was shopping with my mom and ran into her, and she told me she’d love to get a dress,” Hardesty said. She picked out this look for the star, which earned a spot in our coveted Look of the Day section. Soon you can get your hands on it, too: Chauncy Villeroy will release its first collection for December. Learn more at chauncyvilleroy.com.
