Jessica Szohr, Alexa Chung And Christian Siriano Attend Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY Preview Party

sonyericsson 791x1024 Jessica Szohr, Alexa Chung And Christian Siriano Attend Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY Preview PartyGossip Girls’ Jessica Szohr, TV personality Alexa Chung and designer Christian Siriano attended the preview party for the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY this week at the Mondrian SoHo. The event celebrated the launch of the world’s first PlayStation certified Android smartphone.

Since its recent opening, the Mondrian SoHo has been a New York hot spot. This event, held in the hotel’s penthouse, was yet another night of fun at the new hotel. The high tech meets indie chic party was an exclusive opportunity for guests to experience the innovative smartphone with real gaming console. Guests had a chance to play while indulging in canapés by Sam Talbot and Grey Goose cocktails, and enjoying a DJ set by Alexa Chung who wore a Lover dress accessorized by Pamela Love jewelry and her signature Chanel staples.

Sony Ericsson’s Xperia PLAY is like your typical smartphone, but then the slide out digital game pad unveils a digital D pad, two analogue touch pads, two shoulder buttons and the four PlayStation icons. Basically it’s a mini PlayStation on your phone. And you thought you were addicted to Angry Birds. Some of the games available for download are Sims 3, Tetris, FIFA and Assassin’s Creed.

Alexa Chung stepped out of the DJ booth for a bit to snap a few shots with Jessica Szohr, while Christian Siriano feverishly played with the PLAY. Chung also posed with Siriano, who she lifted up so he would be her height for the picture.

“Do I love me some touch screen,” Chung said while playing around with the new device. “I love games, I love phones. It’s like a marriage made in heaven.”

Other guests who stopped by the Mondrian SoHo to play were designers Kimberly Ovitz, Cushnie et Ochs’ Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, as well as The Like’s Tennessee Thomas and Harley Viera Newton.

Pamela Love to Collaborate with Topshop on Diffusion Line

pamela love alexa chung Pamela Love to Collaborate with Topshop on Diffusion Line CFDA/Swarovski nominee, Pamela Love, is known for her tough-chic jewelry line, especially for those signature pieces that can turn almost any blasé ensemble from 0 to wow in less than 15 seconds. Just ask Alexa Chung, who counts herself as one of Love’s biggest fans. But alas, “wow” never comes easy or cheap for this matter, as her jewelry comes priced as high as $1,000-and for a bracelet at that. Which is why we were thrilled to hear that Love and her badass baubles will be teaming up with Topshop to produce a more affordable diffusion line.

Love recently gave us a glimpse of her collaboration when she tweeted a page from the April issue of Vogue. The designer, who is more tough claws and cool spikes (see below) than flowers and sunshine, showed a couple of designs that featured…well an unexpected amount of hearts. “When have you seen me use hearts before?” But it works,” Love said via Twitter. But take note- there is nothing sweet about this diffusion line-rather it builds on a tough romance with hints of a baroque-style and an antique finish.

Love, who is a self-proclaimed Topshop devotee, might be just as excited as us for this collaboration. “I always shop there. They are always so in touch with what’s in fashion,” Love told Vogue. Apparently Topshop feels the same way. “We’ve been fans of Pamela’s for a while. It’s important for us to represent new talent,” said Topshop’s managing director, Mary Horner, who has in the past also worked with Christopher Kane. But the Pamela Love/Topshop joint venture marks the first time that our beloved Brit chain store is working with an American designer. And if you’re expecting some sort of British influence on the designs-don’t hold your breath-as Love told Vogue’s April 2011 issue that the diffusion “evokes the spirit of America. I’m their first designer from the States, so I felt it was important to represent that.”

The collection will be released in five parts and is slated to drop sometime in April.
