Canon’s Project Imaginat10n Film Festival

Canon's Project Imaginat10n Film Festival

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.

‘The Butler’ New York Premiere Red Carpet Round Up

The Butler Premiere

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 In Marchesa – White House State Dinner

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.

WWD @ 100 Anniversary Gala

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.

Who Wore Marchesa Better? Georgina Chapman, Susan Lucci or Tinsley Mortimer

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.

Who Wore Marchesa Better? Diane Kruger or Georgina Chapman

Actress and red carpet heroine Diane Kruger first wore this asymmetrical Marchesa Resort 2010 dress in red to the “Inglourious Basterds” premiere in Sydney back in August of last year.

Diane never fails to wow me on the red carpet and this bright red mini dress suits her fair colourings so well.

She has paired this Marchesa dress with Christian Louboutin pumps and a House of Lavande Italian bracelet, which is all the accessorising this dress requires.

I would like to have seen her hair completely off her shoulders though as the having it swept sideways like this throws the look off balance.

Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman then wore this dress in black to the launch of the new designers floor at Saks back in September.

Georgina looks stunning as always and I love hows she’s teamed this LBD with purple peep toes and a similar coloured clutch.

Such a tough decision but I think this one goes to Georgina for a great choice of shoe and wearing her hair off her shoulders.

What do you think?

This dress is available to buy from Net-A-Porter.com

Who Wore Marchesa Better? Georgina Chapman or Malin Akerman

Georgina was the first to wear this Marchesa dress to the “White Ribbon Alliance Dinner” in New York last September.

I love this dress and think both girls did it the bare leg justice it deserves.

I particularly love the way that Georgina has teamed hers with matching pink shoes and a clutch.

The satin of her shoes really compliments the high shine of the dress.

I also like the way her hair isn’t too “done”.

Malin wore this dress to the “Couples Retreat Photocall” in Hamburg back in October.

I adore the very slightly peep toe Sergio Rossi heels she’s wearing but somehow the bronze clutch throws this off balance.

Malin looks just a bit too cutesy for me in this dress with her perfectly blow dried blonde locks.

I think that Georgina gets the biggest fashion thumbs up in this floral number.

Who Wore Marchesa Better? Isabel Lucas or Georgina Chapman

Isabel Lucas chose this Marchesa Fall 2009 lace-frill dress for the “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” Australian premiere.

The stunning actress chose her favourite accessory – a headband – plus tights to complete a Gothic look.

Marchesa designer Georgina followed by wearing the same dress to “The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards” event with the same lace Louboutin’s which were worn on the runway.

With a fresh face and non-fuss hair Georgina’s look is the better of the two here I feel.

The dress speaks for itself without any additions like Isobel’s.

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

Jessica Szohr wore the blue print version of this Thakoon Spring 2010 dress to this prestigious event.

I’m glad she picked the darker colour, as I would love to see the lighter print saved for the Spring.

Strappy booties and tamed sleek straight hair complete this look.

What? No ankle boots?

Alexa Chung looks really cute wearing a red Jason Wu Spring 2010 dress with a ruffled neckline.

I love those bold red lips.  It’s very rare that we see her wearing make-up.

Ballet flats complete the look, but I’m also missing the black runway waist belt.

Cassie looked really good on this occasion.

The singer donned an off-the-shoulder black and gold striped Brian Reyes draped dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

The dress was paired with open-toe booties.

Georgina Chapman wore a black Marchesa Fall 2009 dress, which has an intricate embroidered detail all over.

The designer paired her dress with the same Christian Louboutin for Marchesa lace ankle boots as the runway model, plus a black clutch from her Spring 2010 collection.

Coco Rocha looked fierce in wearing this Rodarte Spring 2009 black and white dress on the runway, but Karen Elson softens the look by adding black pumps and bouncy curls.

Many of you hated Nicole Kidman’s last L’Wren Scott dress at the CMA’s.

On this occasion she wore a stunning ivory Lanvin tulle lace gown.

Her boobs aren’t squashed, she not too washed out, the black sash tied to the waist is adorably accented with a white rose.

Love it or hate it?
