“Entourage” Season 7 Premiere – Carla Gugino In Ports 1961

The stars of “Entourage” took to the red carpet at Paramount Studios in LA last night, for their Season 7 premiere.

Carla Gugino looked stunning wearing a Ports 1961 Spring 2010 dress.

I’m always gushing about Tia Cibani’s designs. I wish we’d would see more of her work on the red carpet.

Carla’s silver lamé jacquard dress is stunning.

I love the softly draped cascading ruffles which are placed asymmetrically on the skirt, adding a modern finish to the ultra feminine look.

I’m not a fan of mixing metals, so I’ll take of a few points for her gold heels.

7th Annual New Yorkers for Children Spring Dinner Dance – Olivia Palermo In Ports 1961

Olivia Palermo was one of many socialites to attend the “7th Annual New Yorkers for Children Spring Dinner Dance” held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York last night.

I’ve really started to take notice and appreciate Olivia’s style lately, but I’m a bit disappointed with this look.

I love Tia Cibani’s designs for Ports 1961. Her presentations are always visually spectacular, but Olivia drowns in this gown.

The high asymmetrical neckline overwhelms her imo.

I love that she didn’t go wear an obvious designer and that she supported the Ports 1961 label – who may not be that well known outside the US – but I’m not crazy about this dress on her.

It would suit someone much taller.

I do appreciate that she opted for a stand out clutch though.

Do you think she pulled it off?

“Fame” LA Premiere

Kherington Payne wore a silver olive green velvet Christian Cota Fall 2009 asymmetrical dress.

I love this dress. It’s interesting, it’s young and sassy, and Kherington looks to be having fun on the red carpet.

Her look was paired with Judith Ripka jewelry, a black Daniel Swarovski clutch and black strappy Stuart Weitzman heels.

Kay Panabaker’s modified Ports 1961 dress is gorgeous. I love the stunning colours, the one-sleeved effect and that beaded neckline.

What I don’t love are those grey heels.

The colour works, but the heels look a little too big for her.

Naturi Naughton said to herself that everyone’s going to remember ‘my’ name after this premiere.

Whilst her co-stars opted for cute sassy dresses, Naturi went all out wearing a stunning purple mermaid gown which I LOVE.

It’s only seems slightly OTT because of how the others are dressed, but for me she looks amazing.

This is what red carpet dressing is all about. I think I love this so much because if this was my premiere on a major movie, I would dress like this also.

Work it girl.

Ashley Tisdale’s look was super casual.

She opted for a really cute pink playsuit, which is more of a just popping to the mall look than red carpet ready.

Jessica Lowndes wore a sparkling striped skirt with a simple black tee and still looks amazing.

I love the two tone look she has going on here which work on her shoes and jewels.

Ports 1961 Spring 2010

Last season Tia Cibani took us to Indian, after previously taking us to Africa. This season she took us to the Far East, and what an amazing journey we had.

The show had a zen-like calmness to it. Models in very high platforms took to the runway wearing a variety of Asian inspired pieces.

Pants and top were presented, but the emphases was on dresses. We were presented with sheaths, kimono-style dresses, bandeau’s and jersey draped dresses.

Floral prints, obi belts were presented with the colour palette consisting of pinks, golds, silvers, corals and chocolate.

When reviewing the collection again on Style.com, it’s unfortunate that you don’t get to see the glorious prints on the back of the shift dresses and coats, but you can see the detail in the video below.

Ports 1961 Fall 2009


My second to last show at New York Fashion Week was Tia Cibani’s Ports 1961 Fall 2009 presentation. This collection took us on an exotic journey, and that journey was to India.

A Red Baraar Festival!, a Punjabi band started off the show, to get us in the mood.

The models walked the runway with the soothing beats in the background, wearing clothes inspired from Tia’s recent Indian travels. Long, short and glorious lame Sari dresses, Achkan coats, cropped Angarkha jackets, Salwar pants and a stunning ruby ombre jewelled dress were presented.

The exotic colour palette included ruby, henna red, saffron orange, jasmine white, moonstone grey and begonia pink.

The collection took a sophisticated approach on the vibrancy of India’s regal past.

I think a lot of these pieces will be timeless.
