Alexa Chung gives good party.
I know because my husband and I attended last week’s party celebrating her collaboration with AG Jeans. Chung played hostess at professional man of mystery Jimmy Goldstein’s house in Benedict Canyon.
We were shuttled in a golf cart from the valet stand to the private home with Catcher In The Style blogger Thania. She was sweet and friendly and told us that Goldstein founded Treats magazine, a rumor I can’t seem to confirm, and that he once tried to get her email.
Upon arrival we headed to an inside bar and ordered a “Peach on The Beach,” one of several yummy but not-too-sweet Ciroc cocktails being served. We decided to skip the fried chicken and waffle sliders and instead headed out to the pool. Comparing sweeping hilltop views in Los Angeles is like comparing beautiful bodies in Brazil, but it’s easy to understand why Chung selected Goldstein’s abode as the location for the event. Jimmy has a pretty sweet perch from the David Lautner-designed and restored home that he’s owned since 1972, and it provided quite the backdrop for the stylish evening.
I chatted with stylist Anita Patricikson and bumped into the adorable Nathalie Love, who was there with her sister, Laura Love, and Gia Coppola. All the while DJ Myles Hendricks played throwback tunes like Skeelo’s “I Wish” and Frente’s cover of “Bizarre Love Triangle.”
Chung showed up looking cute as a button in her AGxAC Julie Chambray shirt dress, and just in time for L.A. indie rock band Warpaint’s set to begin.
If I bought every piece from AGxAC, I’d feel pretty set with my spring wardrobe. Stylish basics like boyfriend Tees, dresses with snap button closures, and—my personal holy grail of clothing—overalls round out the capsule collection, which is available now.
