Marchesa Fall 2008

By Fashion

Marchesa's Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig are red carpet queens and they know just how to create red carpet magic.

The collection they showed on Wednesday was full of drop-dead gorgeous dramatic numbers, although for me it was not as strong as previous seasons.

These ladies are strictly evening gowns and cocktail dresses, so no day-wear here.

The colour palette was mostly black, purple, red and ivory, with the one pale blue one-shouldered gown. Ruffles, rosettes and lace adorned the gowns to enhance the beauty of these creations.

They did not have a runway show, instead models were on blocks, as guests got the chance to walk around the models as though they were mannequins or works of art, taking in all angles of the beautiful gowns.

I especially loved the deep v-neck sequined lapel jumpsuit, and the more dramatic ruffled red carpet gowns.

You can see the whole collection here and here.

Jennifer Lopez will no doubt get more publicity than the dresses for her humongous baby bump. She looks cute enough wearing a silk teal embellished mini dress with a Fendi bag.

Anne Hathaway is wearing a gorgeous peachy pink Marchesa Spring 2008 dress, but it is a shame we can not see it properly as she covered it with her leather jacket.

She poses here with actress Eliza Dushku, who is wearing a black strapless number.

Kate Walsh shows her support for the Marchesa girls wearing a black feathered cocktail dress.

As does Rebecca Gayheart, in a ensemble very similar ensemble to the designer Keren.
