It’s all about Melrose Place — no, not the show — the actual street! Monique Lhuillier, the favorite of A-list actresses and brides alike, has relocated to her new West Hollywood boutique to just down the street from Oscar De La Renta and Marc Jacobs. “I’ve had such great Hollywood support since we started 9 years ago,” Lhuillier tells PEOPLE. “So to have a flagship store that is this beautiful and big allows us to show the whole Monique Lhuillier lifestyle and brand.” The new 4,200-square foot store features her new line of handbags as well as a bridal section and racks of couture gowns. Sure to be a popular spot during awards season, the store also boasts a VIP entrance and fitting rooms. Stars like Kristen Bell, Becki Newton, Rebecca Gayheart and even First Lady of California Maria Shriver came out to support the opening. Wearing a daring ruffled black and white dress, Kristen Bell said, “Monique knows how to design for petite women like me, because she’s small. Her dresses are so feminine and delicate but still bold.” After walking in, Maria Menounos added, “there’s nothing boutique about this. It’s a mini luxury department store!”

I agree they all look cute and all of the looks are different.

All three of these ladies look amazing, but I especially like Rebecca’s dress!

I like Becki Newton’s dress and jacket the best. Love her shoes as well. Rebecca is so pretty. She has such stunning features and I love her husband, yummy, haha. I like Rebecca’s dress also. However, I like Kristen Bell and she’s beautiful and all, but I hate her outfit. Her top is fine, but she should have chosen a better skirt. The skirt makes her too heavy at the bottom and makes it look like she’s got a big butt. A much more fitting pencil skirt would have worked better. Also change those shoes. I do love her hair and make-up, her earrings are nice too.

I don’t like Kristen’s dress, but I love how Becki paired a leather jacket with the sequined dress. So cute
