Two classic accessories brands, Van Cleef & Arpels and Oliver Peoples, came together for the third year in a row to host their annual Hollywood luncheon, this year hosted by stunner, actress Zooey Deschanel (and co-hosts Matt Costa and Autumn De Wilde). Host Deschanel, even designed her own pair of retro shades, appropriately named after herself. She collaborated with the Oliver Peoples design team and came up with a limited edition pair available for presale for this month and a portion of the proceeds go to her charity, the Jenesse Center. “Doing the Oliver Peoples campaign was amazing because I would never want to be involved with a product unless I actually loved it,” Deschanel told PEOPLE. “And I love their glasses!” she gushed. “I wanted to make a sunglass that was classic and timeless that could be worn by a man or a woman. And it was really fun designing them.” Also at the party, Kate Walsh who caught up with former Grey’s Anatomy co-star Eric Dane, who had a guy’s day out with Balthazar Getty and Johnny Lee Miller — all sporting Oliver Peoples shades, of course.
