THE PARTY Magsaysay held court inside Phillip Lim’s West Hollywood boutique to fĂȘte her first book, City of Style, and greet friends-stylists and cool kids who exemplify the L.A. looks on its pages. THE PLAYERS Nicole Chavez, Emily Current, Meritt Elliott, Minka Kelly, Mandy Moore, Kristen Bell, Brittany Snow, India de Beaufort, Rachel Smith, Cory Desrosiers THE HIGHLIGHTS The warm summer night brought out legions of Magsaysay fans who exemplified the indie-eclectic, casual-chic and romantic-bohemian looks illustrated inside her paperback guide to neighborhood fashion. Kelly, Moore, and Bell dabbled in all three categories by wearing Lim’s bright pastel summer dresses as they posed in front of the boutique’s maze of undulating white walls. THE ONE-LINER “I’m interested in the style aspects: the crop of their pants, the pop of a collar, how high hair is piled up, how a shirt is buttoned,” said Magsaysay on her fashion observations when she’s out on the town.
