A Fashionable Life: Rosetta Getty
SEE LOOKBOOK:ROSETTA GETTY
The party is a celebration of her new niche fashion label, Riser Goodwyn. A former model and designer of children's clothing, Getty, 37, first tried her hand at a women's line seven years ago, but life intervened. One marriage to actor Balthazar Getty, 32, and three kids later, she produced and showed her first collection last year. Tonight her friends will model dresses from her Fall 2007 line.
But even in southern California, you can't count on the weather to cooperate. A few hours ago, after several tree limbs started blowing down, Getty brought everything inside — all the square white plates, white and smoky-brown glasses, cymbidium-orchid centerpieces, and 33 Lomo compact-camera place cards created by her friend Brigette Romanek, a bag designer. "But it just didn't work, so I said, "We're doing it outside anyway, and it's going to be okay," Getty says.
After all, she and Balthazar, a great-grandson of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty and star of TV'sBrothers & Sisters,have one of the most spectacular views in all of Los Angeles. At the peak of Nichols Canyon, their modern home overlooks city lights sparkling right to the edge of the Pacific Ocean.
As Getty gets dressed, Patricia Arquette, her best friend from childhood, bursts into the room, gives a quick hug hello, and breaks the news: "We're going to freeze!" Leave it to cousin Jacqui Getty to turn the mood around. She pulls out a goody box of jewelry and shoes, and the women soon forget about the weather. When she spots her Yves Saint Laurent heels, Eva Mendes screeches, "It'sBelle de Jourin a shoe!" Shimmying into her black wool-and-cotton Riser Goodwyn dress with a wide white leather belt, Mendes declares, "It's very tight! I won't be having bread tonight."
Taking their inspiration from the '80s, Riser Goodwyn dresses meld sophistication with punk flair. Boning and corseting provide structure, while molded leather and python add bite. "When I design, I always keep in mind what is going to make a woman feel sexy," says Getty. "However, I don't want anything to be too trashy looking. I want everything to be very classy and elegant, with a little bit of edge."
Speaking of edge, a recently single Selma Blair saunters in with a new haircut, her Dorothy Parker wit intact. "I went nuts with the hair," she says. "People think I've had brain surgery. I wanted the old Linda Evangelista haircut from the George Michael video days, but I got a little carried away.
"Any booze for a girl?" Blair asks, and the ladies start sipping pomegranate martinis and munching on seared Thai shrimp from hot Hollywood caterer Akasha's Visionary Cuisine. Arquette's husband, actor Thomas Jane, enters the room and blanches. "Where are the men?" he asks, and he promptly heads out to the lawn to smoke a cigar. He is soon joined by Phoenix andTerminator 2villain Robert Patrick, guy hugs all around. "The girls look sexy," says Jane. "My wife is looking pretty hot. Maybe I'll get some action. It's all about how a girl feels in something.
