Emmanuelle Chriqui Designs Baume & Mercier Watch Bands

To actress Emmanuelle Chriqui time is a mystery. “On the one hand, as the seconds and minutes go by without us noticing, we wonder where they went; on the other hand, we have the consciousness that time is slipping by so quickly. This resonates with me in the deepest sense. It is bittersweet.” With delicate features and that infectious smile, Chriqui has charmed audiences in her roles in Entourage, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, and The Mentalist. Currently she has two movies in the works, A Short History of Decay and Omphalos, due out this fall.

A longtime fan of Baume & Mercier and friend of the brand, Chriqui recently embarked on a project to help design specially made watch straps—known for their easy interchangeability and versatility—for its women’s Linea line. Chriqui admits that she has been enamored of watches since she was young.

“My father, who is my hero, had a nice collection, and I inherited my love of timepieces from him,” says Chriqui, who received her very first watch from her father at the age of 14. “It may not have been what he would have chosen for me, but it was what I wanted: a big, clunky men’s two-timezone watch!”

Chriqui says she loved working on designing the new interchangeable straps for Baume & Mercier. Her synergy with the brand has been ongoing since she visited Geneva at SIHH (Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie) two years ago for the launch of its Seaside Living campaign and the then-new Hampton watch collection.

“I was thrilled when they asked if I would like to collaborate on a piece. I visited the factory and spent several days with them talking about my design preferences, and it seemed natural to create a new strap for the Linea line. I said I thought it would be fun to incorporate texture into the look. Having a braided or woven strap is a nice juxtaposition of hard and soft. It’s cool and classic at the same time.”

With homes in both LA and New York, Chriqui travels often. “Being bi-coastal is such a welcome adventure because I love both cities so much.” In Los Angeles, she enjoys weekend mornings the most: “My favorite thing to do in LA is wake up on a beautiful Sunday and get brunch at either Café Gratitude or M Café, followed by a stroll along Larchmont; I check out the farmers market and then see where the day leads. I love having no plans!”

Emmanuelle Chriqui Joins “The Ordained” TV Pilot

Add two more notable names to CBS’ The Ordained pilot.

Veteran actor Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) and starlet Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage) have joined the show. The Ordained stars Charlie Cox (Boardwalk Empire) as Tom, the son of a Kennedy-esque family who leaves the priesthood and becomes a lawyer in a bid to prevent his politician sister from being assassinated.

Neill will play Tom’s father, who’s often called “The Governor” (no eye patch, presumably) while Chriqui plays Tom’s literal girl next door.

Behind the Scenes of Emmanuelle Chriqui’s Charles David Campaign

Emmanuelle Chriqui is one lucky girl. She’s gotten to kiss the adorable Kevin Connolly on Entourage, she has some of the best hair in Hollywood — and she recently got to spend time in L.A. trying on pair after pair of fabulous Charles David shoes. Can we please trade places for a day?

Chriqui is not just the first celebrity face of Charles David, but she’ll also be designing a capsule collection for fall. To kick off the collaboration, she shot her first round of ads in L.A. with photographer Patrick Hoelck, styled by Britt Bardo — and she shared some behind-the-scenes photos from the shoot with PEOPLE. Read on to see the gorgeous pics and hear Chriqui’s take on the shoot (spoiler alert: they “laughed a lot” on set!)

“The shoot was amazing. It all came together beautifully,” Chriqui says of the day-long shoot in October. “Patrick is such a fun spirit. It didn’t feel like a long day at all!”

Of the many gorgeous shoes Chriqui modeled, her favorite were the white “Sway” style, pictured above. They’re “so amazing to throw on with a pair of jeans,” she says. “If I could own every color of the ‘Sway’ pump, I would. They’re super sexy!”
