Look beyond them, however, and Webb did have some clever propositions. First and foremost were the jackets cut from gray marl, a savvy riff on the designer sweatshirt trend. Another smart look combined a white silk ruffle-front dress with a tailored knee-length gray vest: business on top, party underneath. Webb is most at home working in black and white and shades of gray—she's a Manhattanite, after all—but she did toss in some print and color at the end. The floral organza was a bit muddy. The pink was of the moment; we're expecting to see a lot more of it this week. That leaves the red, which was easily the best. In a vivid shade of poppy, a cropped V-neck and a matching floor-length skirt encapsulated Webb's message about looking cool without sacrificing comfort.
