Hilary Duff Is a Jewel at the Avakian Launch Party

A bevy of Hollywood beauties showed up for the launch of the new Avakian Beverly Hills Boutique.

Located in L.A.’s swank Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons hotel on Wilshire Boulvard, the Switzerland-based fine jewelry store has now established its first U.S. presence.

And since diamonds are indeed a girl’s best friend, Gossip Girl narrator Kristen Bell, 28, pop star Hilary Duff, 21, and The Starter Wife’s Debra Messing, 40, couldn’t help but celebrate Avakian’s big night.

Duff, whose Best Of collection was released in November, was recently on hand to bid farewell to MTV video countdown staple Total Request Live.

The “So Yesterday” singer’s voice can next be heard in the upcoming animated feature Foodfight!, which also boasts the vocal talents of Charlie Sheen, Eva Longoria Parker, Christopher Lloyd and Chris Kattan.
