British denim brand MIH parties in style

March 27, 2009 |  5:01 pm

Thursday night MIH denim designer Chloe Lonsdale hosted an intimate party at the Hancock Park home Boy_88651_3 of celebrity stylist Estee Stanley. It wasn’t the usual fashion crowd, most of Boy_8887_2 whom were probably at Decades Two where Rachel Zoe auctioned off her costume jewelry while being filmed for the second season of her Bravo reality show. The people mixing it up at the MIH party were a low-key bunch, peppered with a few A-list stars.

The diminutive Olsen twins lurked in the shadows of the dimly lighted back patio, sinking way into the couches and smoking the occasional cigarette. Rashida Jones held court in a dark corner by a heat lamp. Servers dressed in MIH jeans and chambray shirts passed trays full of traditional English food such as fish and chips, shepherd’s pie and a delightful, layered dessert called Eton Mess -- all bite size, of course.  

“I don’t have that many friends in L.A.,” said Lonsdale, but the crowd of actors, stylists and tastemakers, including Lonsdale’s sister Tamsin who just held her Supper Club soiree at the Mondrian on Wednesday night, would prove otherwise.
