Liv Tyler hosts a kiddie party at the Stella McCartney for GapKids pop-up shop

November 5, 2009 |  1:00 pm

OpenSlide Liv Tyler hosted the opening party for the new Stella McCartney for GapKids temporary store on Robertson Boulevard on Wednesday. Tyler was joined by pals Amber Valletta, Jessica Capshaw, Monet Mazur, Jennifer Meyer Maguire and Sasha Alexander, who all brought their tykes.

The former Gap 1969 denim boutique was converted into a kid-friendly space offering face paintings, balloons and red velvet cupcakes and other sweets.

Tyler acknowledged that when it comes to picking children’s fashion, “it’s probably what the parents like best.” Her Stella McCartney for GapKids favorites? “The Sergeant Pepper jacket and the sweater with the tiger on it -- it’s kind of a famous Stella piece," she said. (It’s actually a leopard.)

Tyler adds that she's in L.A. to film a new superhero comedy called “Super” with Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page next week. And she admits not tuning in to “The Rachel Zoe Project,” where she had a guest appearance last season.

OpenSlide-1 “I can’t watch myself on TV,” cooed the actress. “I watched a few episodes before I did mine and I got really upset because I didn’t understand Taylor [Jacobson] and Brad [Goreski]. They were so different from how I knew them. Taylor is really nice. Brad is so smart and lovely. I was really confused by how they were on the show.”

As you might expect, many adults were squeezing into the larger-sized kid’s clothes (a Gap rep talked me into buying a $28 boys XL cashmere beanie).
