“One Tree Hill” actress — and environmental activist — Sophia Bush was on-hand at the historical 69th Regiment Armory in New York City last night to support the 6th Annual Charity:Ball benefiting charity:water — hosted by Jessica Biel. charity: water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations.

Sophia added an extra fun splash of color to the red carpet with a brightly hued head-to-toe ensemble from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection by Chris Benz. Chris is one of Soph’s go-to designers and a dear friend.

I’m all about deep colors during the winter season, but I can’t help but love the beautiful prints on Sophia’s rise-and-fall gathered skirt. She paired the skirt with the semi sheer open back orange sleeveless top, but during Chris’ presentation it was seen under a floral-printed camisole. The floral top would have obviously been way too overpowering on the red carpet — despite how artsy it looked on the model.

When it came to her accessories, she stuck by Chris all the way! Sophia wore a cool mixture of beaded bracelets on her right wrist and made a bold move by double-wrapping one of his long sand bead necklaces. I loved all of his jewelry for his spring collection, but I kind of wish she had worn the layered necklaces seen on the model as her selection is kind of distracting me from the rest of the look.

Her shoe of choice was a cool pair of strappy black platform sandals from Chris’ collaboration with Alejandro Ingelmo! She finished off her look with an oversize brown crocodile clutch.

I love that she didn’t play it safe with her make-up! While the the rest of it was a soft palette, her lips were a vibrant pink to match the shade of her skirt. Sophia styled her ombré hair in a low messy bun as stray waving pieces framed her face.
