Gustavo Cadile Fall 2009

If Georgina Chapman is my Queen, then Gustavo Cadile is one of my kings of red carpet gowns.

Today I visited the talented designer, to view his Fall 2009 collection. Not long after walking in I spotted many gowns that would definitely be on any Best Dressed list.

The collection included a mix of cocktail dresses and long evening gowns. Some with crystal detailing, and some with dreamy sequins, to add those embellish touches I love so much.

Other details included cascading layers of tulle, silk chiffon, flapper-esqe fringing, jewel encrusted sashes, draping and sweet-heart necklines.

I was immediately drawn to the smoky pink strapless tulle gown, with a tiered skirt, and a satin pink sash, with a bow and brooch detail.

Maybe it was my gushing about how beautiful the gown was, because Gustavo offered the dress for me to try on.

As I put the gown on, I had a Cinderella moment, that I wished would never end.

It was my favourite dress from the collection, along with the navy blue gown above.

Gustavo has an ever growing celebrity fan base, with Eva Longoria and Queen Latifah particular in love with his designs.

I got to see a sample of the dress Queen Latifah wore to the Grammy’s recently, and this dress is part of the Fall 2009, 35 piece collection.

Gustavo’s gowns can be purchased from Neiman Marcus in the US, and from the 15 May, the collection will – for the first time – be available in the ‘Evening Saloon’ at Harrods.

Hopefully we will get to see a few on the red carpet on Sunday night.

    You guys are so incredibly sweet, but I would be to embarrassed to put myself up for best dressed.

    It would be so conceited to put myself up against the celebs
