What Do the Stars Love About Designer Tory Burch? Find Out What They Said at Burch’s Rodeo Drive OpeningJan 15, 2014 @ 3:22 pm
For Tory Burch‘s grand opening of her West Coast flagship store she enlisted a few of her close friends to help celebrate (and even blogged about it!), including Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Decker, Hailee Steinfeld, Emmy Rossum, Jaime King, and Camila Alves, dressed in Burch’s very own designs. With green hydrangeas arrangements placed throughout the 4,700 square-foot space, guests enjoyed Philly cheesesteaks (a homage to Burch’s hometown), spring rolls, and sugar-dusted doughnut bits, while they sipped on Champagne and Tory’s favorite cocktail—the Southside made with vodka, triple sec, fresh lime juice, and a sprig of lavender.
This may be Burch’s fourth boutique in Los Angeles and her 13th store in California, but it’s her very first Rodeo Drive location. “I think Rodeo is such an iconic location,” the designer told InStyle.com. “I never really dreamed of having a store here and when we started this company, we hoped that one day we would,” she added. Not only did she make that dream come true, but she even custom-designed the space with architect Daniel Romualdez and gave the brick and mortar location a personal touch, complete with black and white photos of the Burch family, flea market finds like tables and mirrors the designer scooped up while traveling in Paris and Morocco, and even needlepoint pillows adorned with quotes from Burch’s childhood, including “Everything begets thee to me.”
Within the the three-story boutique, Burch’s entire collection of ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes, jewelry, accessories, including her new fragrance, will be available to shop (not to mention the designer already has a loyal Rodeo Drive following). “I love [Tory's] clothing because it works for the every girl,” Decker told InStyle.com. “You could be a tomboy or an eclectic, crazy quirky style kind of girl or super preppy, and her clothes kind of speak to everyone.” To find what the others stars love about Burch, look through our gallery.
Could they be any more adorable?! Taylor Swift and Hailee Steinfeld were certainly in the holiday spirit yesterday, as the two got together to bake cookies, exchange gifts, and partake in various other Christmas-time activities. Lucky for us, the stars decided to share their merriment with us on Instagram. Taylor shared this photo of her, Hailee, and several mini trees with the caption reading, ”Merry Swiftmas and Hailee New Year” as well as one of Hailee leaning over a batch of freshly-baked cookies titled, ”It’s not possible for her to be cuter or for this day to be more festive.” Hailee posted her own picture of the friends wearing the trimmings from their holiday presents captioned, “That moment when the ribbon from your gift becomes a hair accessory…” We have to admit that these besties are all too cute!
Happy birthday, Hailee Steinfeld! Today, the teen queen turns 17. She’s already been nominated for an Oscar, took on the iconic Shakespeare role of Juliet, and is one of our favorite style muses (who else can make silver nails and hot pink Converse glam enough for the red carpet?). We can’t wait to see what she takes on next!
How will the busy birthday girl celebrate? Most likely on set! She’s currently filming Barely Lethal, a comedy about an international teen assassin who longs for a normal life and, after faking her own death, enrolls in a suburban high school. Due out next year, Barely Lethal will co-star Jessica Alba and Samuel L. Jackson.

The latest incarnation of Shakespeare’s iconic love story Romeo + Juliet hits theaters today, and stars Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth as the beautiful-yet-tragic star-crossed lovers. As you watch the renaissance film, take a close look at the ring the two lovebirds exchange. The bauble is a piece the Swarovski team designed for the flick—they also created the mask Juliet wears to the party—and InStyle.com got an up-close look when the original designs were on display at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. Now, you can be Juliet, too (minus the drama): The jewelry company designed a replica of the ring for R&J lovers, available for $100 at swarovski.com. The piece is just one in their 15-item collection inspired by the movie, complete with hearts, swords and, of course, roses, for which, by any other name, would smell as sweet. Shop the full collection at swarovski.com.

Confession time: Hailee Steinfeld‘s long, shiny strands never fail to give us hair envy, and her new bangs definitely have us considering cutting a set of our own! Earlier this week at the Young Hollywood Party in Los Angeles, the star showed off her wispy fringe, which hit right below the brow. The longer length allows the style to be worn in a variety of ways, and they even minimize the awkward growing-out period — once the bangs pass her eyes, they’ll blend seamlessly into the rest of Steinfeld’s layers. Does Hailee’s new ‘do have you inspired? Click through our gallery for more celebrity fringe ideas!
