This Is How L.A. Girls Do Garden Parties

We all love a great summer party, right? But while most people might opt for a backyard barbecue or beach trip, your favorite Instagram stars and celebrities have gone one step further. Last weekend, Lotusland in Santa Barbara, California, was the place to be, where beautiful botanics and vibrant landscapes set the scene for a Valentino garden party.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper West Coast bash without the local style set donning the brand's Bohemian dresses of its F/W 17 collection. From Zoe Saldana in a graphic floor-length halter to Camilla Belle in an ivory, beaded long-sleeve, these women took the less-is-more approach to playing up their fun, intricate dresses. They styled their exquisite gowns with minimal makeup and just a touch of jewelry—after all, Valentino speaks for itself.
