New York Fashion Week has officially wrapped. Before we leave the city that never sleeps its time to look back at another show from NYFW. This time its a designer with luxurious and the most stunning gowns that I’m sure we would all love to have in our wardrobes. It is of course Marchesa. Known for their extravagant and beautiful gowns made perfect for any red carpet, this collection does not disappoint.
This collection had a very elegant and feminine feel with a vision of the 1920s running through it. The beaded and embellished gowns and tops would not look out of place in the 20s era and the looks definitely had the old Hollywood style glamour theme. The hair and makeup also matched with the models sporting a soft curled look and a sultry feminine dark berry lip.
Marchesa is known for their floral designs and their wide tulle silhouettes. These norms did not escape in this collection. There was a heavy focus on poppies throughout the show with many looks incorporating the embellished floral design as well as following a red and black agenda. In addition there was also no escaping of their usual fuller sized dresses with the odd couple of sizeable gowns but other than that the collection was primarly sleek and embellished to the nines. Well Done Georgina and Keren! Check out the rest of the collection here.

Are you a fan of this collection? What was your favourite NYFW show?
Last night was the SAG Awards in Los Angeles and of course forgetting the winners our eyes were cast on the gowns of the night. So here is the Best dressed of the night. Credit to ladderedtights10.blogspot, ibtimes and celebuzz for images.
My first favorite and probably favorite overall was Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara in this breath taking fuchsia strapless gown by Marchesa . I really can’t explain how stunning this dress is the picture says it all. It has a ruched designed bodice which flows into a draping skirt. The dress looks perfect on Sofia and shows her amazing figure.
My next favorite is The Help actress Viola Davis in this white Grecian style gown by Marchesa aswell. The gown has a golden embroidered strapless bodice which comes into a flowing white skirt. This dress is beautiful and has been well accessoried by keeping it simple with a basic bangle, earrings and a small clutch keeping the attention to the gown.
My third favorite is Kelly Osbourne. This actually seems quite a shock to me as comparing this look to her previous looks including her Golden Globe gown which didn’t go down too well this gown just looks amazing and so sleek and polished on her. The white gown was designed by Badgley Mischka which had beautiful detail on the shoulders aswell as the gathered waist from the gold and white tied belt that looks gorgeous and gives it the finishing touch.
Sorry for the lateness in this post! I have put together 4 of my favorite looks from the ceremony. The first is Mila Kunis who looked amazing in this Elie Saab haute couture dress, Mila also looked amazing at the Golden Globes so maybe she is a future style icon. Scarlett Johansson also looked fab in this gorgeous Raspberry colored lace Dolce & Gabbana gown aswell as Jennifer Lawrence who was wearing a fiery red Calvin Klein number. Is it just me or does she look so much like Stephanie Pratt from The Hills ? And to complete the list the wonderful Halle Berry who stole the show in this dazzling Marchesa gown.
Who do you think was the Best Dressed ?
P.S I wont bother do a worst dressed post as there wasn’t actually that many worst dressed.

As the oscars are coming up this weekend its time to look back at previous Oscar Awards to see who made the best dressed list. The first one on the list is Carey Mulligan who also made the Best dressed of 2010 list in this gorgeous detailed Prada dress at the 2010 Oscars and Keira Knightley also makes the list when she wore this stunning Vera Wang gown back at the 2006 Oscars. Katherine Heigl adds to the list as she oozes with Hollywood Glamour in this very glam Red Escada gown and to finish the list of course we have the fabulous Sandra Bullock who looks dazzling in this metallic Marchesa gown.
Who is your favourite ?
