True fashionistas overwhelm scribe

Author gets her first taste of red carpet

HOLLYWOOD — “Fashionistas” author Lynn Messina found herself temporarily at a loss for words by Tuesday’s book launch party at Fenix Restaurant at the Argyle Hotel.

“I’m just the writer, so it’s beyond surreal to be on the red carpet,” Messina admitted. “The first 20 minutes here have given me enough for another book.”

Producer Christine Peters, who has film rights to the comic tale of a New York fashion designer with Lindsay Lohan attached, hosted the jam-packed soiree. “It’s all about building excitement for this project,” Peters noted.

Attendees included Par execs Pam Abdy and Wendy Japhet, Paris Hilton, Natasha Henstridge, Michelle Rodriguez, Lacey Chabert and Neil McDonough.
