The Fashion Bomb does Reem Acra

Just dipped into the tents...
...for the Reem Acra show where I sat diagonally across from Sanaa Lathan and Ashanti. My pic:
...here's the professional shot...
Much better.
The house was packed with other stars, including Aubrey and DWoods of Danity Kane (and Aubrey's skirted pooch), and the Jays from America's Next Top Model.
The show itself was *beautiful* if not a little all over the place. In my little green notebook, I cited several influences: Indian inspired beadwork to Chinese mandarin collars and Western shirdresses redone in silk...
Competing penchants aside, I was literally floored by the succession of extremely luxe fabrics and details of sequins, brocade, and silk, along with eye popping colors of hot pink, tangerine, iridescent to deep blues, and gold...
...a random choice, but of all the shows, Reem Acra stood out as one where I would unflinchingly wear anything straight from the runway (including the shoes!). Though rich, the collection was wearable and in moments breathtakingly beautiful:
Smootches!
*Dress by Tibi, jacket and cocktail ring from Pieces!
