Marchesa Fall 2011

I will never know how but Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig seem to top themselves every season.

Their Marchesa Fall 2011 presentation was every more beautiful than I had imagined. I wouldn’t be surprised if stylists were placing their Oscar selections immediately to secure the best looks.

Every piece had a quiet dramatic quality to it.

We saw lots of tulle, embellishment, mermaid hems, gothic romance and some looks could easily translate to bridal gowns.

If I had to pick one favourite look it’s the dress above. It’s such a shame that the shimmering embroidered details aren’t captured in a photo as it left me breathless.

Key accessories included Christian Louboutin heels paired with lace socks, Miriam Haskell custom accessories and Marchesa signature handbags.

Celeb attendees: Vanessa Hudgens, Eve, Michelle Trachtenberg, Olivia Palermo, Petra Nemcova, Irina Lazareanu and Tinsley Mortimer

Favourites: The embroidered gown with a tulle hem above and black sheer gown with white embroidery

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kerry Washington, Camilla Belle, Diane Kruger, Olivia Wilde, Heidi Klum…the list is endless

    I would die if Nicole Kidman wears that gown. I remember when Marchesa first launched, the girls said that it would be their dream if Nicole Kidman wears one of their dresses and Nicole has yet, too!

    Hopefully dreams will come true at the Oscars!

    Oh my goodness. The main photo is literally making me want to cry It has to be the standout piece from the fashion week. I hope someone (mostly Hailee Steinfeld, of course, or JEnnifer Lawrence) wears it to the oscars and does it justice! I am actually shaking.

    These are all so amazing!
    Is the embroidered ball gown with feathers white or light green? I’ve seen other pictures of it where it looks green but the ones posted on Style.com show it to be white. Either way, its incredible. I love the vintage 1940′s hollywood vibe that in getting from this. Jennifer Lawerence would look incredible in that grey/blue one shouldered dress at the oscars. I cant wait to see these gowns on the red carpet!

    i actually think this isn’t their best collection at all. aside from that stunning red one you featured, their last collection was better for me ):
