Improv Everywhere's 'Black Tie Beach 2011' (VIDEO)

It may be Fashion Week in New York, but bold sartorial statements aren't limited to the bounds of the white tents.

Improv Everywhere held their second annual Black Tie Beach this past weekend at Rockaway Beach, and invited people in different cities around the world to join in. Folks from Venice Beach, California to Sydney, Australia all donned their finest evening-wear and hit the waves, much to the confusion and enjoyment of observers.
