Stars Fete Catherine Malandrino's New L.A. Boutique!
Catherine Malandrino celebrated the grand opening of Catherine Malandrino Maison in West Hollywood on Monday night surrounded by family and close friends — including famous fans Mary J. Blige, Rosario Dawson (whose boyfriend, Mathieu Schreyer, was DJing at the event), Perry Reeves, Dita Von Teese, Keisha Whitaker and Garcelle Beauvais Nilon, who left her one-year old twins home with a sitter to attend. “The kids are dressed, in the high chairs. I got them their food and was like, ‘bye!’” the actress laughed to PEOPLE on her way inside the event. “I’m not supposed to [shop]. I’m supposed to be good.” Inside the party, Beauvais Nilon joined Malandrino, Blige, and Von Teese in a candelit outdoor VIP area where they enjoyed cocktails, appetizers, and girl talk. “She’s a lot of fun,” Blige told PEOPLE. “She’s worked so hard and made so many beautiful clothes, but Catherine is so much fun. That’s something only her friends know.” If you can’t make it into the gorgeous Los Angeles boutique, click here to shop on the Catherine Malandrino website. – Shayna Rose Arnold
