Guests including Molly Sims, Jessica Alba and Nicole Richie came out to get the latest curated box from designer Rachel Zoe.

Rachel Zoe’s Box of Style subscription is on a roll. To celebrate the launch of the winter edition, Zoe invited her closest girlfriends to an intimate dinner at the Chateau Marmont on Wednesday evening.

The dinner, held in one of the hotel’s massive bungalows, had an air of ‘70s glamour as members of Zoe’s blonde posse were decked out in Zoe’s signature metallic prints and wide-leg pantsuits. Zoe herself wore a black-and-gold glitter jumpsuit paired with a silver cat-eye that created the look of a perfect holiday season host.

Guests including Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie, and Molly Sims, happily modeled Zoe’s latest collections.

Alba wore a wide-legged pinstripe suit that could have been taken straight out of The Get Down wardrobe. Erin Foster wore the head-to-toe pink bismuth suit with flared pants and a ruffle blouse from Zoe’s newest 2017 Resort collection. Soleil Moon Frye wore a drapey black blouse and pants that could easily transition from work to cocktail hour.

“The women in this room are the women I design for. I design for women that love fashion, love style, but don’t have a whole lot of time to deal with it. They’re multi-hyphenates. They’re all working. They’re all doing a million things,” said Zoe. “It’s just very hard for people to take the time to think about it. So I design in a way that they can throw something on and feel good and make it easy.”

Could the future first lady fit that bill? When asked if Zoe would design for Melania Trump she replied, “Oh, I don’t know. I haven’t even thought about it.”

The designs were so effortless, that some billowing selections could even double as maternity wear. Molly Sims showed off her baby bump in in an open-shoulder gold-lame gown with a high-collared neck bow. 

“I design things for people to wear when they ate too much, or when they’re detoxing,” Zoe said proudly of her forgiving designs. “But I don’t detox!”

Zoe's trendsetting guests were gifted with a Dylanlex custom crystal necklace from the winter box. Many wore the necklace throughout the evening, and Alba and Kelly Sawyer both modeled it as a choker in numerous selfies.

Dylanlex jewelry has been a hot-ticket item ever since Beyonce donned the mile-high silver chains in her video for ‘Formation.’ 

The winter Box of Style also features items from Sunday Riley, Clinique, D.L. & Co and Soia & Kyo, among other gifts. The box can be purchased as a one-off for $100 or $350 for a yearly subscription of four seasonal boxes.  

When asked what Zoe most wants for Christmas this year, she replied “Twins,” laughing. “The thing I most want for Christmas this year, outside of anything my kids make for me, I would say is this amazing very thin diamond Anita Ko choker that she happens to be wearing tonight, or a trillion cuff by Jennifer Meyer.” Take note, Rodger.
