Jaime King loves to pick out clothes, which is why she creates every look herself, sans stylist. “I’m such a fashion person that I love to choose things myself,” the Hart of Dixie star told InStyle.com at our annual Summer Soiree in Beverly Hills this week. “I look at my favorite designers and I choose and I pick, and then I call the designers.” And that includes the one-shoulder ruffle Marchesa design she wore to the event, which she spotted after looking at the label’s new resort collection. “For this one, I called Marchesa because I loved this dress,” she said. “I said I would really love to wear it.” She did the same with her Jimmy Choo heels. “I put it all together,” she said. “It is important to do the research yourself. Then you are not just showing up to a fitting hoping people pulled things you like.” See more of Jaime’s best looks (all her own!) in the gallery.
