All the cool kids were up bright and early (well, not that early, 9:30 am on a weekday) for the Dannijo Spring 2013 jewelry presentation at the very hip Standard Hotel. Those joining sister designers Jodie and Danielle Snyder to celebrate their Peter Beard-inspired "Peaceful Warriors + Trippie Hippies" collection included journalist Lynn Yaeger, Man Repeller Leandra Medine, Billy Joel ex Katie Lee, fashion designer Timo Weiland, model/actress Angela Lindvall, rapper extraordinare Questlove and drop dead gorgeous (and super sweet) model-turned-actress Brooklyn Decker.
Early on, we cornered Battleship star Decker—looking beautiful in a silky romper adorned with loads of chunky, stone-encrusted Dannijo pieces—for a quick chat before breakfast really got crazy.
Lucky: So what are some of your favorites from this collection?
Brooklyn Decker: I like everything actually. They have these really great braided string bracelets that are awesome and I actually wear them around my ankles and they’re good for every day. I love all their stuff. It’s just a really fun way to make an outfit much cooler than it already is.
What accessory trends are you looking forward to wearing this fall?
Dannijo and Jennifer Fisher and all these really great desgners that are doing this masculine, tough sort of spin on jewelry. And for a tomboy like me it’s kind of perfect, so I’m really excited to try that out.
Does your husband (newly retired and totally dishy tennis champion Andy Roddick) help you out with shopping tips?
Oh, no….he doesn’t have a clue. That sweet boy. No, he doesn’t have a clue. [Decker giggles.]
What are you plans for the rest of Fashion Week?
I’m actually heading out on Monday. I’m going out of town, so I’m missing it unfortunately. But I’m here for Dannijo today and they’re actually close personal friends of mine, so it’s a really good way to kick it off. And then I’ll let everyone go on their way!
Oh, how did you meet Jodi and Danielle?
We met—actually I follow Man Repeller—the blog—and I had known their jewelry, but I saw it styled in such a cool way on her blog. So I met her and through her I met the girls, and since then we stayed in touch and stayed friends!
