All of the charm and delicacy of Lorry Newhouse’s evening looks were here, the best being knee- or tea-length flowy dresses in beautiful printed floral silk chiffons and French lace. But some of the longer pastel confetti looks and ruched tulle ballgowns seemed a bit overwrought, which made her addition of daywear all the more appealing. She showed pieces like shorts, albeit satin, with a lace blouse and a long printed pleated skirt with a nude chiffon shell. However, it was the Gatsby-ish white linen suit with its midcalf-length skirt, shaped jacket and printed tie shirt that was the strongest. Less understandable for any time of day or night were the baby-doll dresses with huge glitzy sunglasses delivering a decidedly Lolita message.
