Tibi Fall 2011

When & Where: Tuesday, February 15 at 7 p.m., the Stage, Lincoln Center
Runway Recap: Tibi's show notes described the looks as a mixture of '90s minimalism and Rococo-inspired prints, two things that couldn't be more unalike. And yet, it worked. The show began with daytime looks, chiefly in black and gray but styled with neon pink accessories in kind of a cute, post-grunge way. Once the prints started popping up, the nighttime looks began entering the runway, with party-friendly frocks in glittery brocades and ornate prints. As someone who relies heavily on Tibi for my own nighttime wardrobe, I started making a virtual shopping list for next fall's events, day and night.
Standout Look: My favorite Tibi silhouette tends to be of the shift variety, but this look really caught my eye--a gold jacquard dress with a silk chiffon overlay at the bust. The shape is much more fitted, and the overlay gives it a sexy, boudoir-ish quality.
Bonus Points: Vanessa Hudgens and Olivia Palermo sat in the front row, and, amusingly, once I tweeted that, several Vanessa Hudgens auto-bots retweeted it. Ah, technology.
