Do you miss Carrie Bradshaw's fabulous fashion sense?

Then start watching Top Design, because designer Kelly Wearstler, one of the judges on Bravo's interior-design competition show, gives the Sex and the City shoe siren a run for the money with her wardrobe choices: You never know what she'll be wearing each week.

We're talkin' feathers, sequins and berets, and her updos can be so sky high that she teeters on being mistaken for Marge Simpson.

"I never go out, but I have all these great outfits," Wearstler told me the other night at her Beverly Hills manse, where she was hosting a launch party for Domino: The Book of Decorating. "So I was just like, F--k it, I'm just going to wear them."

Wearstler is the designer behind celebrity hot spots like the Tides hotel in Miami's South Beach, the Viceroy hotels in Palm Springs and Santa Monica, Body English nightclub in Las Vegas and the restaurant at the exclusive Bergdorf Goodman department store in New York City. She's currently working on a china collection as well as a bedding line.

Then there's the renovation of the house where the Domino party was taking place. Its previous owner was Cubby Broccoli, the late legendary producer of the James Bond movie franchise. (Unfortunately, we weren't allowed inside the house.)

Wearstler admits she's been approached to star in her own reality show, but she's politely declined. "I don't watch TV," she insisted. "I haven't seen any of the Top Designs. I'm too scared and nervous. I'm shy—honestly!"

Among the night's cocktailing guests around the pool were Gwen Stefani, Arianna Huffington, Lake Bell, Elizabeth Banks, Zachary Quinto, Molly Sims and Domino Editor-in-Chief Deborah Needleman.
