Sweet Sweet Marchesa

We've never seen a couture dress in person - at least not that we were aware of - but we always imagined it'd look a little something like the dress at left. Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig showed their Fall 09 Marchesa collection at the Chelsea Art Museum this afternoon. The girls, all of whom looked about twelve, were split into triptychs and apparently instructed to look miserable. No matter, the clothes spoke for themselves. There were a couple of recycled Marchesa ideas but who really cares when recycling looks like that? We spotted a few McQueen inspired dresses, lots of sequins, shimmer and lace. Their inspiration? "Fairytales," said Keren. The shoes, square toed platform satin ballet slippers from Christian Louboutin had us practically swooning into the arms of Matchbox 20's Rob Thomas. We can't imagine having a reason to wear such frothy gowns, but thank goodness we've got six months to justify the shoes. Oh, and for the record, Little J's raccoon eyes are so back.
