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.

Runway To "Seven Pounds" Rome Premiere & Photocall – Rosario Dawson In Ports 1961 & Bottega Veneta


After wearing a lot of bright vibrant colours this week, Rosario Dawson opted for a navy Ports 1961 50s style dress, when she attended the Rome photocall of her new film Seven Pounds yesterday.

The taffeta dress has exposed pockets, which she wore with black patent heels. The actress opted out of wearing the contrast bow which was presented on the runway.


For the premiere, Rosario brought out her not so secret weapon.

Her deadly curves. Those delicious curves hugged every inch of this Bottega Veneta Fall 2008 dress, which is the shorter version of the same dress Sarah Michelle Gellar and Christina Ricci wore last year.

Despite all her colourful dresses, this is the best she has looked all week.
