This afternoon I attended one of my favorite shows of every season, Tracy Reese:

Tracy Reese Fashion Show Spring 2010

At 1pm, I walked into the venue…what can I say, it was kind of a zoo!

From pushing publicists to bickering seat neighbors, it seems the super high energy for the show was less focused on fashion and more directed to the celebrity attendees, which included veteran model Beverly Johnson, actress Gabrielle Union, singers Amerie, Keri Hilson, and Kelly Rowland, and reality TV darling Kim Kardashian.

Most celebrity attendees showed up fashionably late, which caused a mad rush of press and cameras minutes before the show’s scheduled start. Once the flashing camera bulbs died down, however, Tracy soothed us with her unquestionably cool collection:

Tracy tends to design prim pretty pieces dominated by nature inspired floral prints that are perfectly suited for a girly twenty something who has a series of garden parties to attend. I was definitely expecting for Tracy to play it safe, but she surprised and wowed by instead presenting flowing, easy dresses in a plain color palette that suggested perhaps a harder edge:

My favorite pieces included a gray bubble dress with a structured bodice and pockets and a spaghetti strap floral number with a sheer overlay that ballooned into a sash and train:

Of course Tracy threw in a floral or two for good measure:


But all in all she definitely evolved her aesthetic, sticking to her ultra feminine silhouettes while adding a dash of mystery and intrigue to her typical fair.


After the show, I went down to the front row to meet and greet a few celebrity attendees:

Ran and caught up with Ciara before handlers whisked her away backstage.

And talked fashion with Kelly Rowland who was feeling my Louis Vuitton Vernis bag.
