Haute Secrets: Designer Elisabeth Weinstock
If you’re a member of haute Hollywood, you covet Elisabeth Weinstock‘s creations. The LA-based, LA-raised designer founded Coton Blanc, a sexy knit loungewear and sleepwear collection that retailed at Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman and Harrods in 1991 before opening Elisabeth Weinstock Design, an interior design firm in 2002. A premier bag collection followed in 2011. Weinstock’s latest canvas is her new West Hollywood store. Built in the 1930s, it is an enchanting union of Classic European warmth and Hollywood modernity. She counts Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Elton John, Jennifer Aniston, Kerry Washington, Jessica Alba, Mandy Moore, Rebecca Gayheart, Sophia Bush and the biggest fashionista of all — Sarah Jessica Parker — among her celebrity fans. Here are Elisabeth’s haute secrets.
