Molly looked laid-back and summery in a knee-length, watercolor-print dress by Diane von Furstenberg which she accessorized with a multi-chain gold necklace and bauble bracelets from her new collection and a pair of flats.
"Ask me anything," she smiled, "and yes I am single." The all-American model/ actress/ jewelry designer recently split with actor Aaron Eckhart, who was the genius photographer behind the campaign images for her jewelry line.
"When we dated, we used to take lots of pictures together. He is a phenomenal photographer; the Bruce Weber type. When he's on set for movies, he will just shoot pics of Johnny Depp and Nicole Kidman and they are amazing. So I begged and begged him to do my campaign and he finally agreed," said Molly.
Over coffee and muffins, the bubbly blonde shared stories of getting to where she is today; launching the website and creating her new jewelry line, 'Grayce by Molly Sims The Collection,' sold at Henri Bendels, and GraycebyMollySims.Com.
"I will be blogging on the site and I'm very bad at social media. I'm 36, but trying to be cool. There will be daily hair and makeup tips. I want the site to represent me but at the same time be easy to navigate because I often find it hard to buy clothes online. The designing process was definitely difficult."
The collection of funky jewels is aimed to appeal to a wide range of consumers. "I love my pieces because they are really good quality and women can afford them." The price points range from $75 to $250.
"I am definitely not a trend girl in my accessories. I want these pieces to last forever."
Known for her fab figure, we couldn't help but get a little pre-bikini season advice from Molly. Always tan and toned, the veteran model told us she keeps in shape with the Tracy Anderson workout routine, a favorite of celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow and Courtney Cox. "It's really really hard. I have an athletic build and when I go to the gym, I usually bulk up, but this routine has really changed and elongated my body."
Sims then went on to say that she is currently healthy and happy in her own skin. "I have dealt with rejection my whole life; people saying I'm too fat, too thin, my calves are too big, my hair looks bad. I believe that anorexia and bulimia are at an all-time high right now and the media way over-glamorizes these super thin women."
"I remember the days when I ate rice cakes, honey and bananas all day so I have very mixed feeling about the whole issue. I think the internet has really become a virus for it all. It's worse then ever. Look at Heidi Montag. She was a normal girl from Colorado and now she has size F boobs. I feel so bad for her."
Take it from a pro, opt for oversized baubles not oversized boobs!
