2012 Met Gala – Round Up Part III

Thank God I didn’t like all the dresses spotted last evening on the 2012 Met Gala‘s Red Carpet, because choosing my favorites of the night wasn’t as easy as I would have hoped. With a different story hiding behind every dress, with so many favorite stars and favorite designers in one single place, the task seemed almost impossible.

2012-Met-Gala---03Sofia Vergara stayed true to her gorgeous signature style by sporting a silver-embellished hourglass Marchesa gown from the Spring 2012 collection. The opulent design that featured a strapless bodice, a peplum waist and crystal beading was teamed with Harry Winston jewels. A sleek center part and fuchsia pink lipstick perfected the appearance.

Camilla Belle wowed me as she took on the Red Carpet for the 2012 Met Gala, by channeling the 1920’s Hollywood glamour like no one else could. The actress donned a pearl deco-inspired Ralph Lauren Spring 2012 gown with a daring plunging neckline and a low cut back. Diamond jewels, a silver clutch, a rich plum lip gloss and a sleek side-part chignon provided the finishing touches.

Lana Del Ray joined the A-list celebrities for the 2012 Met Gala as a Joseph Altuzarra guest and obviously wearing the designer’s creation. Her ensemble, consisting of a silver and black hand-embroidered floor length gown and a black silk cape best represented her music and her taste for dramatic, vampy appearances. Minimal jewelry, deep plum colored lips, soft curls and a darker hair color completed the magical entrance.

Beyonce Knowles – People’s Most Beautiful 2012 Cover

It is official, as of today, the super talented singer, songwriter, actress, better yet, the one and only, Beyonce Knowles graces the latest cover of People magazine’s Most Beautiful issue, as the artist has been named world’s most beautiful woman in 2012. Yay !!!

People Magazine May 2012

Beyonce looks nothing but stunning on the May cover, as she strikes a pose in a white opulent Marchesa Spring 2012 gown, paired with the 200-carat Lorraine Schwartz turquoise and champagne diamond necklace.

The beautiful and valuable statement necklace, was previously worn by supermodel Heidi Klum during the 2012 Golden Globes, so it might come across as familiar, even if the jewelry piece has been turned backwards for the People’s photoshoot. Still breathtaking.

Beyonce’s favorite light blue-nail polish, impeccable make-up and a soft up do provided the finishing touches.

Marchesa Spring 2012

New York Fashion Week – Marchesa Fall 2012

After an amazing and exciting seven days, New York Fashion Week closed its doors in style on Thursday, leaving us filled with new wishes, more ideas, some plans, and a couple of dreams, all for the coming Fall, and to think it’s not even Spring yet.

I couldn’t find the right amount of time to check ALL the collections presented during this week, but luckily, I did manage to explore, what some of my favorite designers envisioned for the upcoming cold seasons. Giving it the fact that I’m way behind with everything that I’d like to share with you, I’m going to get straight to the point.

For Fall 2012, Marchesa found its inspiration in William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s dramatic 1878 painting, entitled A Soul Brought to Heaven, in which “the body of a young woman is being carefully carried to the gates of heaven, through a stormy sky.” With such divine inspiration, it’s no wonder the collection itself looked ethereal, vivid, and above all, poetic.

Marchesa---Fall-2012

What I loved most about the collection, well, can I make it short and say … just about everything? No, that I can’t do, so … I loved the sequence of dramatic Oscar worthy gowns; the splendid embroidered silhouettes; the fantastic scenery as the models walk down the runway, strongly resembled them floating above the clouds; the full-on glamour accessories and the subtle sexiness of the sheer garments.

In terms of trends, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig focused on feathers, lace embroidery, gold accents and precious metals detailing for this Fall.

My favorite looks of the collection were almost all of the short cocktail dresses (hint the first two above), but what stood out most, was the dramatic closing piece, a red gown made of a fully embroidered bodice, paired with a huge floor-length puffy skirt. What, can’t a girl love her share of princess worthy ball gowns? I hope someone will do justice to this dress, and rather sooner then later. Maybe at the Oscars?

Marchesa Fall 2012

As far as colors go, Marchesa suggested red, black, powdery blue, gold and ivory for Fall, whilst for accessories, nothing beats the luxurious box clutches with pearls, precious stones and feather appliques, the nineteen century inspired pointy-toe heels, or the glamorous version of the gladiator sandals. Models sported soft touches of make-up and romantically braided updos.

Rachel McAdams – Silver Sparkles In Marchesa

Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows finally premiered on December 6, in Westwood, and it was the perfect occasion for the beautiful Rachel McAdams to shine on the Red Carpet.

The talented actress wore a sexy silver gown from the Marchesa Resort 2012 collection and her silhouette looked amazing in it.

The sequined long-sleeved dress, with an open back, that reminds me a little bit of the ’60 glamor was softly accessorized with Jacqueline Nerguizian jewelery.

An elegant knotted updo and Christian Louboutin ankle boots made for the Fall 2010 Ready-to-Wear Collection by Marchesa finished the look.

Blake Lively – Uniquely Daring in Marchesa

“Gossip Girl” reached 100 episodes and that required a big celebration of course. Blake Lively joined the fashionable cast at the Cipriani Wall Street, in New York City, wearing again something that is different yet not very youthful.

Blake-Lively---Marchesa-Gown

For yesterday’s Red Carpet, Blake chose this unique Marchesa (<3) sheer dress with silver detailing and white tassels. Gold High Heels and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry completed her look.

I think she stole the show last night, with people either hating or loving this look, but definitely buzzing about it.
