It seems the Ronson/Dexter-Jones’ live by the mantra, “the family that plays together, stays together”. Last night, designer Charlotte Ronson celebrated the debut of her new Sephora cosmetics collection alongside mom Ann Dexter-Jones and half-brother Alexander as well as the majority of NYC PYT’s. It’s no surprise when a Ronson attracts a crowd; Charlotte’s runway shows are usually packed with young Hollywood celebs-from Nicky Hilton to Solange Knowles. Last night’s event, which took place at Hotel Chantelle on the Lower East Side, was hosted by Ronson’s fellow beauties and New York It Queens Dani Stahl, Drea de Matteo, Eleanor Ylvisaker and Shoshanna Gruss who toasted the effortlessly chic designer on her latest success.

Guests like Genevieve Jones, Mia Morretti, Harley Viera-Newton and Cassie Coane mingled amongst the guests, nibbling on the bars tasty appetizers and sipping on signature Kanon Vodka cocktails. It-boys Kristian Laliberte, Shooter Jennings and even our very own Peter Davis feted the collection, while Cory Kennedy, Fabiola Beracasa and Sky Ferreira checked out the goodies in the gift bags.

With fashion week quickly approaching, last night was sure to be the last of Charlotte’s parties before her latest Spring 2012 collection hits the runways in September. Can’t wait to see what she has for us next, but the most exciting part may be who shows up.
