Tibi Fall 2012

Amy Smilovic served up an unexpected, understated menswear-inspired collection for Tibi’s Fall 2012 presentation during New York Fashion Week yesterday evening.

I was expecting girlie tea-length dresses but instead I saw cropped pants, oversized outerwear, menswear-inspired blouses, slouchy knits, boxy wax jackets and double-breasted jackets.

It wasn’t all menswear inspired. We did see some A-line dresses, sleeveless peplum blouses, floaty skirts and chiffon flowy tops.

The pieces which stood out were the shimmering blue-and-green looks plus the pretty bird prints.

Models wore comfortable men’s shoes in black and white, their hair was styled into a low messy ponytail, their faces were kept natural and their nails were painted white.

What I love about this collection is that it is easy, chic and very wearable.

Front Row: Olivia Palermo

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Olivia Palermo, Shailene Woodley, Emma Roberts, Whitney Port, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Carey Mulligan and Liv Tyler

Sketched by Amy Smilovic of Tibi

I was just opening my mail when I discovered three beautifully sketched cards by Tibi designer, Amy Smilovic.

I’m incredibly touched that the designer has sketched looks from my New York Fashion Week adventures.

On the left she sketched my look from 5 day. The middle is my look from day 8 and on the right my look from day 4.

As if by chance, these were my favourite looks so the sentiment is even more touching.

This is the best Christmas gift ever.

Hayden Panettiere In Tibi – 2011 MTV European Music Awards

Hayden Panettiere joined her fellow American stars Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Selena Gomez on the red carpet at the 2011 MTV European Music Awards on Sunday in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The actress wore a Tibi Rococo cap sleeve dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

Her black and white Rococo printed cap-sleeve dress was teamed with Christian Louboutin black satin knot detailed platform pumps.

Silver statement earrings and a matching clutch accessorized her look.

This is quite a typical look for Hayden, short with no surprises.

Unlike Evan Rachel Wood, Hayden often struggles to come up with new and interesting ways to style her cropped hairdo.

On this occasion she opted for a curly perm.

Mena Suvari In Tibi – ‘A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas’ LA Premiere

Mena Suvari donned a very festive frock on the red carpet for the LA premiere of ‘A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas’.

She wore a Tibi Pirouette Party dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

The head-turning fiery halter dress with a bold print and a unique cut-out back was teamed with black Ruthie Davis ‘Avatar’ pumps and a matching patent black clutch.

Her bob was pushed back behind her ears so we could see her gorgeous black earrings.

I don’t think I’ve ever owned black earrings, but these teardrop beauties work perfectly with her overall look.

Kohl-rimmed eyes, silvery eye shadow and glossy lips completed her super-cute red carpet look.

You can buy Mena’s dress from Shopbop.com and Saks.com.

Olivia Palermo In Tibi & Markus Lupfer – “Talent Store” Opening At Fidenza Village

Olivia Palermo attended the ‘Talent Store’ opening At Fidenza Village in Fidenza, Italy yesterday wearing a Tibi top we’ve seen her wear once before.

The socialite wore a Tibi ‘Easy’ blouse from the Fall 2011 collection with a Markus Lupfer fox print skirt.

A black furry gilet, a gold belt and Jimmy Choo ‘Ghillie Tie’ sandals completed her look.

This is yet another eclectic mix of colours, textures and prints from Olivia.

I would look like a hobo if I tried to replicate this look, but Olivia pulls it off with such ease.

Kristen Bell In Tibi – The Nature Conservancy “Style And Beauty For The Planet” Launch Event

In New York City on Monday, Kristen Bell attended The Nature Conservancy ‘Style And Beauty For The Planet’ launch as the Neutrogena Naturals Brand Ambassador.

The actress wore a nude Tibi strapless dress with pleated ruching details.

She matched her gold Salvatore Ferragamo box clutch to her gold Casadei platform pumps.

The fresh-faced beauty kept her makeup natural and opted for sleek, straight locks.

I usually love what Kristen wears, but this look is missing something.

Maybe a necklace or some other jewelry to stop this look from feeling so empty.

I also don’t like the heavy pumps.

Julianne Hough In Tibi – ‘Footloose’ LA Premiere

Julianne Hough took to the red carpet last night for the ‘Footloose’ LA Premiere.

I’m not usually a fan of what Julianne wears on the red carpet, but I do love this Tibi Fall 2011 ensemble.

The actress/dancer wore a red organza top with gathered neckline and sheer sleeves, with matching high-waisted shorts.

I’m so glad she didn’t over-accessorize the look as she only added gold earrings, nude pumps and a large cocktail ring.

Beauty-wise, she’s flawless.

Sweeping, tumbling waves and glossy nude lips completed her look.
