Chris Benz Gets Inspired By Memphis and Eternal Hottie Cheryl Tiegs In Sweatpants!

Chris Benz's cheerful collection was the perfect match for yesterday's sunny afternoon, with attendees smiling all around—including Elettra Wiedemann, Eva Amurri, and J. Crew's Jenna Lyons. Inspired by Memphis and the early '80s, the clothes were perfectly designed for splashy springtime celebrations and garden parties through a fun mix of color, sequins, and feathers. Benz told us the leggy white-hot Cheryl Tiegs played a big role on the inspiration board, imagining her "at a party, in a luxe-y sweatpant, sequin jacket, lying by the fire." If you can go there, we commend you, but Benz had smartly included pieces for all walks of life, from flirty and young (a rainbow feather shrug stole the show) to tailored pieces (yummy spring suits). He also debuted the launch of his lipstick collaboration with Lancôme, so now truly anyone can get a kiss of Benz's candy-colored spring vision.
