"Gossip Girl" mom Kelly Rutherford attended the launch of MNG by Mango at JCPenney on Oct. 12 wearing a sweater dress adorned with large sequins. The 41-year-old actress paired the dress with basic heels and minimal jewelry.

The Spanish label, known best for their affordable runway-inspired clothing, collaboration with Penelope Cruz and current ad campaigns starring Scarlett Johansson, is JCPenny's latest foray into diffusion lines. (Prior to MNG, the department store partnered with the Olsen twins for Olsenboye and Charlotte Ronson for I "heart" Ronson.)

Singer Janelle Monae performed for party goers including socialite Tinsley Mortimer, "Real Housewife" Alex McCord, "Bachelorette" Ali Fedotowsky, model Isabel Lucas, and chef Katie Lee Joel.
