Not everyone feels the need to leave the city in July. This past weekend a slew of stylish New Yorkers forwent jaunts to the beach and countryside in favor of a more urban oasis. The Carrera Sunglasses Escape brought the summer scene to the roof of the Mondrian SoHo.
On Saturday night, Gossip Girl'sPenn Badgley stopped by to try on a selection of aviators before taking his seat in the VIP section to talk music and moves. Badgley, who is relocating to his dream bachelor pad on the Lower East Side, plans to produce his own record in the near future. His new sunnies, Venroy Australia board shorts, and SOUL by Ludacris headphones, which he scooped up at the suite, will serve him well on an upcoming trip to Mexico. Glee's Dianna Agron also made her way to the roof in a weather appropriate ensemble--her floral skirt, soft tee, wide-brim sun hat, and navy Carrera frames were perfectly coordinated.
On the fashion front, designer Charlotte Ronson mingled with friends on the terrace as her sister DJ Samantha Ronson spun for the crowd. Christian Siriano had other matters on his mind. After imbibing a UV Vodka Blue Raspberry cocktail, the the Project Runway alum tried on over 20 pairs of shades; he eventually decided on a "hot" aviator style.
And now that they've stocked up on the perfect summer supplies, perhaps this crew will be beach bound by Friday.
