Canon’s Project Imaginat10n Film Festival at Alice Tully Hall in New York City was something of a Marchesa fest yesterday evening.
Georgina Chapman: Led by the designer herself, Georgina wore a black Fall 2013 fitted column-style Marchesa tulle cocktail dress with all-over floral embroidery and draped off-shoulder sleeves styled with signature accessories: Christian Louboutin pumps and a Marchesa quartz-clasp clutch. A half-up half-down hairdo perfected this romantic look.
Eva Longoria: As always, I gave a big sigh before writing out a critique for Eva Longoria. What she gives via her lush Marchesa raspberry strapless cocktail dress with 3D silk ribbon roses and bugle-bead twine embroidery along the neckline, she takes away with the oversized floral-print Marchesa envelope clutch.
Dree Hemingway: The model had no such issue, looking heavenly wearing a pale-blue slip dress with asymmetrical organza ruffles with a pale-blue organza collared tee shirt overlay. Opting to go matchy-matchy with the Marchesa clutch and glitter sandals, she added a vampy rouge lip colour to her stunning look.
Abigail Spencer: Rounding out a quartet of dames in Marchesa cocktail dresses, the ‘Suits’ actress wore a red strapless fitted frock with tonal French-knot and chenille threadwork embroidery, which she also styled with a Marchesa clutch, and white pumps to ensure the trend doesn’t die.
I do love each of the looks; it’s such a shame Eva’s styling let the side down, but 3 out of 4 ain’t bad.
Here is a roundup of the rest of the guests who attended ‘The Butler’ New York premiere.
Anna Wintour: The American Vogue editor-in-chief opted for an off-the-shoulder custom-made Dior fitted dress with all her signatures, with the addition of a rarely sighted clutch.
Andre Leon Talley: Dressed in a gold cape, he almost overshadows Anna.
Jesse Williams: The actor looked very handsome in a classic black suit with satin lapels styled with a white dress shirt and a standout plum-and-white bow tie. Those blue eyes are so dreamy.
Georgina Chapman, who dressed the First Lady for the White House state dinner, was also in attendance for the grand event.
Looking gorgeous is a daily occurrence for Georgina, but she looked especially beautiful on this occasion wearing a gown from her Spring 2012 collection.
On the runway, this embellished gown doesn’t excite in grey, but in blue it is breathtaking.
A bejewelled Marchesa clutch and silver jewels completed her look.
Georgina’s in her element. She’s simply radiant here.

Last night designers a few celebs helped WWD celebrate it’s 100 Anniversary in New York City last night.
Designers Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen arrived in matching black ensembles which predictably took over their petite frames.
They also did that pose where they look joint at the hip. *will never get these girls*
Jessica Szohr added a touch of animal magic to her look by livening up her black jumpsuit with Christian Louboutin ankle boots.
Georgina Chapman was a perfect vision – as always – wearing a Marchesa Fall 2010 dress which makes her look like she’s floating on a very stylish cloud.

Georgina Chapman wore a self designed Marchesa crystal encrusted red dress from her Fall 2009 collection to the “Hollyrod Foundation’s DesignCare Event Honoring Michael J Fox” in LA back in July.
Georgina is so drop dead gorgeous, she could wear a potato sack and still wow me.
The oversized bow on the dress is such a nice feature without being too overbearing.
Susan Lucci wore the same dress last October to the “Child Protection Agency’s Gala” in New York.
I like the slightly longer length, which is more age appropriate for her.
She adds a nice choice of earrings to her look which match her silver shoes, along with red lips which is a nice touch.
Tinsley Mortimer is my least favourite in this Marchesa dress, which she wore to attend the “Samsung 3D LED TV launch party” this month in New York.
Without any disrespect to her this is very much a grown up’s dress. It feels too grand for her.
It really hard to beat Georgina in her own threads. She totally owns this look so she wins for me.
If you’re a Gossip Girl fan, you will remember that Leighton Meester wore this same dress on the show during Season 3.
