Goodness Gracious! These gowns are to die for … Seriously, Marchesa needs to pack up and move to Paris because that is where they belong- amongst the incredible haute couture houses of our time. Let’s start with the stunning shoulder/neck jewelry on some of the dresses. I love love love the glitz and glamour it lends that only the 1930s did so well ( I also love jewelry built into a dress). Each gown’s hue is so delicate and reminiscent of an elegant ballerina ( we also saw that at Dennis Bosso– definitely the movie  Black Swan is in the air). I’m especially digging the nude and lace gown- some of these gowns remind me of Dior and John Galliano’s couture line over the past couple seasons and also Jean Paul Gaultier’s couture lines from several seasons ago. Identical silhouettes and soft, feminine fabrics- but always flattering on any woman.Anyone who brings on the glamour is A-ok in my book! Yay, Marchesa!!

New York designer Dennis Basso used  ballerina colors for one of the most simple, yet beautiful collections at New York’s Fashion Week. Not many collections stood out since they were mostly a regurgitation of the 1970s, but this collection did because it was actually pretty. I love the fur accents and pale nudes and creams… maybe the movie Black Swan had an effect? Either way, it was a refreshing break from all the FUG  seventies-wear plaguing New York Fashion Week.
