Last night Thursday (August 22), in West Hollywood, Lala Anthony celebrated the one year anniversary of Courvoisier Gold at Bootsy Bellows. For the event, Lala looked bright in a $575 MSGM Neon Lace Dress accessorized with matching $795 Christian Louboutin Un Bout 12MM heels in neon yellow which she last wore here.

Lala Anthony recently launched the Fall 2013 collection of her 5th & Mercer jumpsuit line, a collaboration with her stylist Jason Bolden. The twosome officially launched the line last year (December 2012). Kelly Rowland, Gabrielle Union and Tamar Braxton have already been seen wearing a 5th & Mercer jumpsuit. Mary J Blige, Cassie and Rachel Roy have also co-signed the line. The collection is sold exclusively on Shopbop.com. Lala stated that she created 5th & Mercer to combine the classic uptown style with more edgy downtown detailing at smart and reasonable price points.

“I wanted to share this line to give women a variety of options, whether it’s a fun look with the printed sweatshirt or a more dressed up style with the pencil skirt. There is something for everyone in this collection and I’m so excited for it to launch,” said Lala.
