Tibi Spring 2013

Tibi’s Spring 2013 collection was very refreshing as Amy Smilovic served up easy-street-chic, uber-feminine, everyday pieces we will no doubt see on celebrity fans such as Olivia Palermo and Lauren Conrad.

The collection mixed menswear-inspired loose, low-slung tuxedo pants, light-coloured denim jeans, boxy tops and two-tone pants with playful feminine shirt dresses, crop tops, pleated skirts, drop-waist dresses, short skirts and fit-and-flare dresses.

The majority of the collection was classic black and white with delicate pops of lemon, cream and pink with punchy abstract prints which are the designer’s signature.

Leather waist-cinching belts, leather miniskirts and peplum tops, and sheer crochet pieces gave this collection a contemporary edge and a sporty flair.

The clothes were beautiful, but the shoes were divine. We saw a selection of strappy sandals. I love the part-leather, part-PVC shoes and the two-tone sandals.

Front Row: Olivia Palermo and Solange Knowles

Favorites: Abstract print dress and crop top with colour-block skirt

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Olivia Palermo, Solange Knowles, Malin Akerman, Emma Roberts, Whitney Port, Lauren Conrad, Elizabeth Olsen and Maggie Gyllenhaal

Malin Akerman In Tibi – The Today Show

Malin Akerman was spotted headed to the NBC studios this morning for a guest appearance on the Today Show in New York City.

The Swedish actress talked about getting up close and personal with Tom Cruise in their new movie, ‘Rock of Ages’.

Malin wore a Tibi look which featured a ‘Jewel Orchid’ tank top and a sexy high-waist leather skirt.

Black Christian Louboutin ‘Neuron’ cage sandals completed her chic morning show look.

Olivia Palermo In Tibi – Gala Spa Awards

Olivia Palermo looked graceful on the red carpet at the Gala Spa Awards at Brenner’s Park Hotel in Baden-Baden, Germany, this weekend.

The keen follower of fashion wore a Tibi ‘Arabella’ v-neck dress for the occasion.

Her dress, with an on-trend ruffled peplum at the waist, was styled with a gold cuff, a platinum clutch and a matching ring.

Although I love it when Olivia is more adventurous with her accessories, she made the right decision to stick to low-key pieces which complemented her dress rather than upstaging it.

Olivia has had a long-running relationship with Tibi, so it’s not a surprise to see her wearing a dress from their collection.

Light waves and glossy pink lips completed her look.

Vanessa Hudgens In Tibi – 5th Annual Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party

Vanessa Hudgens was one of the many beautiful stars to attend the 5th Annual Women in Film Pre-Oscar cocktail party, held at Cecconi’s in LA last night.

The actress, who is turning into quite a well-turned out young woman, looked gorgeous wearing a Tibi silk sleeveless gown.

Her tangerine gown, which is divine against her olive skin, was teamed with complementary gold jewels which helped maximise the bright hue.

Hot smoky eyes and natural wavy tresses completed her look.

Let’s hope the boho phase is truly behind her now, because this is more like it.

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.

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.
