Mesmerizing Marchesa

Following a perfectly pastel and watercolor spring collection, Marchesa designing duo Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig showed a dreamy and glimmery gold, white, and champagne palette that sparkled on the catwalk for the final night of Fall NYFW.

The vibe was a mix of  ethereal, sexy and celestial ~ and chock-full of frocks with feathers, lace, gilded corsets and embroidery, and oceans of organza and tulle. I’d like one of each loverly look, and the luxurious lifestyle that goes with it.

Feast your pretty peepers on these fit-for-a-princess pieces!

Love, love, love this frock! Those strappy gold gladiators are bananas.

Backstage beauties: two of my favorite stylistas ~ Olivia and Rachel.

Another dynamic duo ~ the Hubs of designer Georgina Chapman, Harvey Weinstein, with Anna.

Now off to swinging London, lovelies!

Icing on the Cupcake

SJP + Valentino Frock + Jimmy Choos = three of my favorite things!  And the aqua American Apparel tights and House of Lavande jewels?  They’re the icing on the cupcake ~ as in the cupcake that is Sarah Jessica Parker.

When SJP was on Live With Kelly recently (Kelly! Make that four of my favorite things!) ~ Kelly introduced her as “The most gorgeous, and best-smelling lady, the lovely and talented Sarah Jessica Parker.”  Jonah Hill, the guest host, then proceeded to tell the audience that before SJP came on set, it smelled like cupcakes backstage.

Quel cuteness!

Mad For Milly!

I would happily wear a Milly frock every day ~ and after seeing Michelle Smith’s Fall 2012 collection, I want to wear at least two per day ~ starting with the pretty pair below.  The uptown-meets-downtown vibe with a sprinkling of Parisian chic is perfection!

The fabrics for her ladylike designs are in shades of shocking pink, green, yellow and blue. The embellishments are feminine and fun with petal and scallop tiers, taffeta, swiss-dotted bodices and sleeves, Peter Pan collars and hand-cut paillettes.

Here are my favorite looks from the Milly catwalk, kitties.

The hardest part is having to wait ’til Fall for these pretty pieces! So to get your Milly fix, feast your peepers on its recent collaboration with preppy-chic boat shoe line Sperry for spring ~ in stores now!
