Supermodel and actress Amber Valletta is definitely no stranger to having all eyes on her, and Thursday night, she was the center of attention as she made her designer debut with the launch of her collection Amber Valletta for Monrow at the Ron Herman Melrose store. Although the supermodel-turned-actress (and now fashion designer!) may not be strutting her stuff on the catwalk anymore, she was runway-ready as she dazzled the crowd in a stunning black long-sleeve mini dress from her collection. The sleek star worked with stylist Lia Davis to design a collection that she describes as “classic with an edge but accessible,” she tells PEOPLE. Pieces like the ivory fringe cape, and gold ’50s high-waisted boy shorts give the collection an edgy vintage touch. The collection is already being worn by stars like Rachel Bilson, who turned up to support on Thursday night, and Jessica Stroup. Guests couldn’t stop raving about the collection as they enjoyed some bubbly from Perrier-Jouet and Crumbs cupcakes — if only it was available online already!–Tiffany Matloob
