Guests were shuttled into the Hollywood Hills for a private New Year’s Eve party that featured a runway presentation of the Bebe Sport collection and a performance by Angelica Bridges and her pop troupe, Strawberry Blonde.
Guests included “The Kite Runner” actor Shaun Taub, Rex Lee from “Entourage,” actors Jeremy London and Andrew Keegan, and Bebe owner Manny Mashouf.
Models walked the catwalk in Bebe’s sexy sportswear—accessorized with pink barbells and bottled water. The looks were glam—plenty of gold and silver metallics, animal prints and satin. The definition of sportswear stretched from color-blocked athletic tops worn with leggings to micro-mini shorts in leopard print.
Highlights included a strapless romper in black satin, a silver motorcycle jacket and a retro fur cubby. Metallic bikinis came in silver and gold and were paired with a black trench coat or with fleece mukluks. And the models toted extra-large handbags in silver metallic or zebra-print fabrics.—Alison A. Nieder
