Emmy Rossum: Carolina Herrera's a hoot

Emmy Rossum

Emmy Rossum praised Carolina Herrera at an event for the designer's Archive Print collection.

The 27-year-old actress attended the designer's Archive Print luncheon in Los Angeles earlier this week. Carolina's latest collection features flamboyant pieces, such as a structured high-waisted light blue skirt with a print featuring sketches of women in swimsuits standing on lilos.

Emmy, who donned an ensemble by the fashionista herself for the luncheon, was happy to support her creative pal at the event.

“They should do swimwear in this print,” Emmy told WWD, pointing to her vibrant bird-print shorts. “I love a little retro... [Carolina] has a wicked sense of humour. We were at a party together a couple weeks ago in New York and we started taking the centrepieces apart together and wearing them.”

Glee star Naya Rivera was also at the event, held at the Beverly Hills hotel. Guests enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere around the poolside as items from the line were laid out to view.

“Where’s my Carolina Herrera swimsuit?” Naya mused as she looked at the water. “I was just joking to my manager, like, ‘Now that it’s summer vacation, all I want to do is be a Lady Who Lunches.’”

Although Carolina wasn't present, her daughter Patricia Lansing was on hand to give an insight into the inspiration behind the pieces. She hosted the luncheon alongside Jessica Joffe.

“Our brand has so much history and so many prints,” Patricia explained. “This collection gives a little taste of that back to the public - and this is a totally different price point. You can have your first Carolina Herrera, so to speak.”
