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
