Every artist has a muse, but designer Charlotte Ronson counts lots of Hollywood gals as her inspiration -- and luckily, they love a good party.

Nicole Richie and Charlotte’s sister Samantha Ronson welcomed Kidada and Rashida Jones, Nicky and Paris Hilton, Lake Bell and Mindy Kaling to West Hollywood’s Il Sole on Wednesday to celebrate Charlotte’s new beauty collection, girly fare inspired by and named for her famous friends.


Richie glowed with a blond updo in a black romper with brass button detail, holding court at her table with the likes of Monet Mazur during a sit-down dinner in the eatery’s private dining room. Rounding out the group were a mix of fashion folks and peeps from Sephora, where the line will be carried.

Though the beauty goods were inspired directly by ladies including Rashida, Richie and even the Ronsons’ mother, Anne Dexter Jones, it turns out funny lady Bell wasn’t among those tapped for a product name.

‘What the hell?’ Bell cracked.

So what would a Bell-inspired, say, lip gloss be called? Oh my -- turns out the name would include, um, something unprintable.

‘'[Something Unprintable]. That’s What I’m Talking About. Period.’ That’s what it would be called,’ Bell said.

Quite a name, and perhaps we understand now why her concept wasn’t included in the collection. But we’d totally wear that.
