When designer Charlotte Ronson created her latest I Heart Ronson for JCPenney collection, she wanted it to reflect warm-weather fun. “The inspiration for this line is summer picnic,” she told PEOPLE at a Svedka-sponsored bash celebrating the latest attire. “Summer florals, ginghams and maxi dresses, those kind of free-flowing styles you can wear from day to night. That is my philosophy for everything I design.” The line’s versatility was a big hit with stars like Nicole Richie, Ashlee Simpson and Jordana Brewster, who all came out to The Roosevelt Hotel’s Spare Room in support of Ronson. “You can pair [the dresses] with some flip flops and wear them during the day or dress them up at night with a pair of wedges and a fancy bag,” said Brewster. “They are seamless.” Being that it was June 21, the first day of summer, talk turned to this season’s fashion favorites. For a Ronson-clad Paris Hilton, that includes “definitely a bikini, pretty sandals, big hats and big sunglasses. I love Hervé Léger bikinis and Jimmy Choo sandals.” Sister Nicky Hilton prefers “Paige cut-off shorts, a cute top, rompers, gladiator sandals and wedges,” she told PEOPLE. Maybe with some I Heart Ronson thrown in, for a walk through the city streets? “I’m from New York and that’s where I know Charlotte from,” she said. “It’s a very New York cool downtown vibe.” —Michelle Ward
