Marchesa Magnificence

For Spring 2011 Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig introduced a series of breathtaking evening gowns that left even the most jaded fashion folk speechless. Dramatic hand-painted florals, embroidered butterfly motifs, and laser cut details made for a unique take on evening wear. Marchesa's signature folds, pleats, and fabric manipulation create flattering silhouettes that are both sexy and stylish.

The crowd that gathered at the Chelsea Art museum to preview these glamorous confections were treated to eye candy, champagne, and star sightings. Rachel Zoe snapped pictures of her favorite looks, while Selita Ebanks and Jessica Szohr had their eye on the short sparkling stunners. Come awards season we hope to see these on some of our favorite actresses as they are sure to land the wearer on all best dressed lists.
