The Charlotte Ronson x JC Penney summer BBQ party last night was, in a word, pink. From the volleyball court to the food (cotton candy and blush-tinted drinks), the hue put everyone in a rosy mood. Lovely ladies Zoë Kravitz and Mischa Barton showed up in matching florals, Eva Amurri and Chris Benz circulated arm in arm, and the Ronson clan took turns DJing while showing off their matching leather ensembles. Guests were given a (wait for it) pink ticket on arrival that let them shop "Charlotte's Closet" to peruse the wares from the latest I Heart Ronson collection (we all picked the same feather-print dress—stay tuned for who a "Who Wore It Best" feature). And as late arrivals Alexa Chung, Olivia Thrilby, and Sean Lennon arrived, guests migrated outside to take in views of the Jersey shoreline (no snickering...it was actually really pretty). Barbecue, shopping and waterside conversation? Tell us this wasn't the perfect ode to our favorite season!
