Marchesa Fall '09

The Marchesa show is always one of our faves: It has gorgeous Oscar-worthy gowns, celebs galore and the best champagne. It no doubt helps that designer Georgina Chapman (below right, with co-designer Keren Craig) is married to Harvey Weinstein.

The presentation featured lots of tulle and ballerina-inspired looks:

The models were fed peanuts throughout the hour long presentation, so the girls didn't pass out.

Marchesa's clothes are tailor-made for a presentation and the designers have been doing it that way for years.

And these Cinderella-inspired Louboutin's:

Annie was most excited to see Gossip Girl's Taylor Momsen:

While Hope appreciated the more old school Helena Christensen:

We're with you on Helena Christensen, Hope! She's an all time fave! And love love love Marchesa.

We venture to guess that if Cinderella had been in those Loubitins they would have both ended up in her closet at the end of the night. What girl would leave one of those behind????
