Tracy Reese presented a Spring collection yesterday that would make any gal swoon. Sweet sundresses, voluminous tunics, flirty swimsuits, ladylike parasols and a healthy dose of sexy thanks to a few transparent pieces.

The front row was just as impressive. Angela Bassett, Selita Ebanks, Beverly Johnson, Solange Knowles, Susan Fales Hill and June Ambrose were just a few of the celebrities in attendance.

Looking sensational in a hot pink suit, Ambrose completed her ensemble with her most famous accessory of all--her lovely daughter Summer. She was eager to praise the collection ("I loved the light pastel colors this season. Very fresh!") and spill the beans on that "big" secret she's been keeping. Our prediction was right, she confirmed to HuffPost BlackVoices that she will be staring in her very own reality show on VH1 this winter. The show premieres on February 20, 2012, so mark your calendars.

Bassett, who is currently performing in The Mountaintop on Broadway has been getting into the fashion scene lately. She made an appearance with co-star Samuel L. Jackson at the Giorgio Armani boutique during Fashion's Night Out.

We caught up with Bassett after the Tracy Reese show where she told us that she "loved everything in the collection and can't wait to wear all the flowy dresses." Agreed.

Since the show was scheduled on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Reese and her show partners (Mally Beauty and Laforce + Stevens) made donations to Action America and Families Of Freedom. Tres Chic!

Here's a look at the collection and VIP attendees.
