Gibson is known for her subtle, delicate use of decoration, and she was clearly out of her element with the plunging necklines, paillette-covered pirate shirts and microscopic miniskirts that she showed. An embroidered bikini, a pleated miniskirt worn with a beaded jacket and a glittering tuxedo complete with top hat added to the confusion.
On the upside, some pieces, like the simple geometric-print dresses and optical halter tops and sweaters, will be a worthwhile addition to any closet. But as a whole, the sexy, edgy mood that Gibson tried to achieve simply was not there.
