Hosted by CW's "90210's" Jessica Lowndes, organized by Matters On Design (MOD), sponsored by Kia and Elle Magazine, Bebe's Spring 2010 Fashion Extravangza ignited Spring with a bang.

Actually, it's a will of good gesture to Bebe's loyal shoppers at The Grove, West Hollywood's outdoor mall.

They laid out a red carpet as the catwalk with a sound stage at one end, next to The Park.

People were mesmerized by a plucky aerialist acrobat twirling above their heads, signaling the start of the show.

The first segment of the runway show was the Prints and Pastel line.

The pastel garments suggest an easier, looser fit to relax during Summer's humidity and heat.

Bold florals pack a punch.

The Zodiac Show's Burlesque Dance Troupe doing The Charleston.

To truly see the clothes in action, Bebe lent an unexpected surprise-the vaudeville perfomers from The Zodiac Show, as intermission for the models, really pushes the collection to its limits.

Cute tops with ribbed knit midriff inserts keeps it sexy and slender without pulling or falling out of place.

Ruffle mini-skirts flounce with the skips and the beats.

The Summer White cotton bustiers keep the goods suggesting, not exposing.

Pink Ruched Satin Cocktail Dress in the Pin Up Girl Line.

It was fitting that a retro burlesque troupe kicked off the second segment, The Pin Up Girl Line of satiny sirens in Old Hollywood Glamour gowns and cocktail dress.

Stilt Dancers doing the Paso Doble.

This fashion extravangza celebrates what is California apparel excels in-comfortable but stylish knits that keep everything in place and the tradition of Hollywood talent and glamour.

Yes, Virginia, there is arts and culture in Hollywood; and Bebe brought it out of the old Studio System then brought them out on stage for everyone to enjoy and gasp.

The Zodiac Show's stilt dancers really pushes the art of stilt walking and Bebe's bustiers and cocktail dresses to their limits.

They tangoed, Paso Dobled, twirled, twisted, lifted, and grooved in the brand's separates and dresses, showcasing the durability in its stitch and seams and construction.

If they can survive tangoing stilt dancers, they can do fine in the night club.

After that jaw-dropping performance, things become more comfortable, more causal but no less chic with the Rock and Roll Line.

May be inspired by Late Seventies' Lower East Side New Wave, by the likes of Blondie, but they're the new classics.

Timeless black and white striped tees paired with sleek black leggings, ballet flats for Spring then boots for Fall.

Draped one-shoulder jersey dress with neon tights.

The v-neck black tee stretch into a Little Black Dress, another closet staple.

A rock duet and rock guitarist capped off that night's activities, blasting Bebe Spring 2010 into the atmosphere.

What a way to launch a new season.
