Last night, Ashlee Simpson hosted the exclusive launch of Missoni and Havaianas's flip-flop collaboration at Kitson in Beverly Hills. Ashlee arrived looking hippie-chic in a long white maxi dress and sweet flowered headband. The new aunt to baby Maxwell Drew Johnson filled us in on her family's new addition, working on a tween line with her sister, Jessica Simpson, and how having her son, Bronx, has changed the way she dresses. Check out out some of the highlights:
- On her niece, Maxwell: "She is a doll. She's definitely the cutest thing in the whole world and is getting all the good, spoiled love. I got her a Fendi dress."
- On how motherhood changed her style: "I would say I dress for comfort most of the time. I mean, I have a daily lifestyle of being a mother as well, so I know I'm going to be picking up a 42-pound child, so sometimes heels just don't make sense. Although I wish I could be like Sex and the City and wear them all the time. But sometimes I go with a more practical, laid-back vibe. But as far as going out I like to go with my feeling. There is definitely sometimes a feeling that I love, that mod-meets-bohemian style."
- On her tween clothing line with Jessica: "The tween line is adorable and it's so much fun because we get to meet young girls trying the clothes on every day. It's just about bringing a good, fun element and the girls love these things, and it's great to meet them and find that out. I was just asking the other day if I could get all the clothes in my size. Like, can I wear a size 14 tween?"
