NYFW Spring 2012: Tracy Reese Mixes it Up

The Venue: A pastel forest-themed runway backdrop in the Studio space at Lincoln Center.

The Scene: A front row of stars outfitted in Tracy Reese: A brunette Katie Cassidy, Jamie Lynn Sigler, Tikka Sumpter, Selita Ebanks, Louise Roe, Angela Bassett (who looked uh-mazing, by the way), Aisha Tyler, and June Ambrose, who brought her adorable daughter along as her date.

Tracy Reese front row regular Aisha Tyler had a tough time selecting her outfit. “When I was trying my clothes on yesterday, everything just fit perfectly. Everything was just so cute,” she said. “It’s nice when you get a bag of clothes and everything fits you and you’re like, ‘oh, I don’t know which one to wear,' which almost never happens. Usually you try on 10 things and you wear the one that doesn’t make you cry.”

The Looks: Inspired by the "juxtaposition of romance and sport, comfort and flattery," Reese created lacy mixed textures, contrasting floral and striped print combos, billowing floral mullet tops, palazzo pant jumpsuits, fine pastel patterned knits, sporty long anoraks, and Victoriana-influenced tea dresses.

The Pieces We Want to Buy: The candy-hued paper-bag leather shorts and the watercolor half-peplum ruffle dress. The delicately sheer and tiered lace maxi dress at the end was to die for, so we’re hoping it ends up on the sales floor with a modest slip lining underneath.
