Mix one part cozy with two parts elegant and the bohemian-inspired Fall 2011 collection by Tracy Reese is what you get. All eyes were on an unlikely pairing, a look that even the curviest ladies can pull off — chunky knit sweaters and ponchos paired with glittering, jewel-hued gowns and mini-pleated maxi skirts. Love. Pops of fur and beaded embellishments also made an appearance among eye-catching colors like jade, copper, amber and plum.
The hippie-chic models kept it natural with minimal makeup and long, wavy hair of all shades which reflected beautifully off of Reese’s lush RTW pieces.
Front-row starlets included actresses Gabrielle Union and Julia Stiles, along with the Today show’s Natalie Morales, model Veronica Webb, Caroline Manzo of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and celebrity stylist June Ambrose.
