Hollywood Trend Watch: Mara Hoffman's Hot Prints
Love colorful looks, but find florals too femme? Take a cue from these Hollywood A-listers who are huge fans of designer Mara Hoffman's bright, graphic line of clothing and swimsuits.
"I was inspired by travel and fantasy," the designer tells Us Weekly of her bold tribal patterns, which have grabbed the attention of Amy Smart and Kim Kardashian.
Smart wore this blue and black patterned frock in Santa Monica on May 1 while Kardashian rocked a Mara Hoffman maxi dress in Studio City on June 22, saying that "I'm obsessed with this Aztec-print dress. It's fun and I love the colors!"
In terms of Hoffman's swimwear, Ashley Tisdale rocked a "Chieftan Story" bandeau bikini at her 26th birthday bash in Malibu on July 2. Weeks later, Whitney Port showed the designer some love in her summer-white embroidered bustier two-piece after stepping out at Hoffman's runway show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami.
Recently, Hoffman brought her talents to the beauty industry and teamed up with Skintimate to create a limited-edition line of colorful shaving cream cans. So even you can't swing to spend over $200 on one of her amazing bikinis, you can make your shower look way more stylish for around $3. Our pick: Skintimate Signature Scents in Strawberry Tangerine Twist.
