Fashion Week: Tracy Reese Gets Edgy for Fall 2010

It’s official. The Tracy Reese uptown lady has left the tea party and headed to the gritty downtown streets. The designer, whose line is synonymous with all things airy, elegant and dainty, has a new daring attitude for the Fall 2010 season.

The dark turn, which incorporated touches of black lace and dark shades, did nothing to take away from Tracy’s ubergirlie style. Instead, downtown girl edge was weaved effortessly into her posh and prim aesthetic, most brilliantly in a pink tulle A-line dress paired with black lace tights, a black statement necklace and booties by Highline United for Tracy Reese.

Though silhouettes were a little more form-fitting than previous seasons, pieces like a sky blue printed dress and a pink cardigan with sparkling embellishments were still quintessential Tracy. Texture and print was a prominent theme with plaids, jacquard, fur trim and tweed jackets taking centerstage. Reese also gave the fashionista plenty of ways to stay warm this Fall: black leg warmers, fingerless opera length gloves, chunky scarfs and cozy cowls.

At the show, models like Georgie Badiel and Gracie Carvalho stormed the catwalk to One Way’s “Cutie Pie” with plenty of sass to match the tough luxe fashions. The beauty looks were equally edgy: wild, curly ponytails, smoky eyes and lace fingernails! Tracy Reese tweeted that the nails weren’t Minx, but rather lace overlay on top of polish. I LIVE for them.

The crowd, including Julia Stiles, Kristen Bell, Adrienne Bailon and Michelle Williams (who looked gorg in a Tracy Reese trench, floral dress and leather gloves), erupted in applause when Tracy took to the runway at the finale.

Tracy did the impossible with this latest collection: she made being a girly girl cool again. I, obviously, am obsessed with the look! Check out the pics below and let me know what you think of the new bad-ass Fall 2010 collection. Should Tracy stick to pretty and posh? Is the new edgy direction a breath of fresh air? Discuss.



Beyonce Heats Up Union Square With Fragrance Launch Party

Hey Glamazons! The creme de la creme of the beauty world mingled alongside our fave songtress Beyonce last night at Union Square for the launch party of Bey’s first fragrance, Heat.

Everything was decked in red (including Beyonce who wore a cute little flouncy dress by Marc Bouwer) and at some points felt like maybe you were in the pits of a nicely fragranced, celeb studded hell. Little sis Solange was on deck as the DJ and other celebs that showed up to show support included Usher, Michelle Williams, Sherri Shepherd, mom Tina (daddy Matt was nowhere to be found) and of course, the huz Jay-Z (who so cutely declared his love for Bey when asked what he thought about the new fragrance!)
Have any of you purchased Heat yet? If so, let us know what you think!
Beyonce and Michelle Williams. Um, is it just me or does Michelle look crazy?! I was NOT feeling this look on her….
