Lela Rose recently invited us into the "Red Carpet" closet of her Tribeca home for a piece we wrote for Rue La La, which you can read here. She walked us through her wardrobe, which includes a dress collection that runs into the hundreds, some seriously cool kicks—many from her own Payless collection—and covetable sunglasses and bags from Marni, Calvin Klein and Moschino (to name a few). Colorful, quirky and fun, Lela's closet is much like the designer herself. She employs what she terms "hanger hats" (linen thingies) to cover her garments and give her closet a uniform look. And her homemade biscotti's pretty yummy, too. It was a really fun outing, as you can see from these photos of Lela, her closet and her beloved pup, Stitch.
