Dress Me Up
If my dream closet suddenly came to life and started posing around an art museum, it would look exactly like Marchesa's Spring '09 collection. Twenty-four carefully curated, beautifully constructed gowns took over the Chelsea Art Museum and proved that Marchesa is more than Hollywood hype. It may quote from other sources (Galliano comes to mind) but it was a stellar showing of gorgeous dresses that anyone with the means will be clamoring to get a hold of.
While the gowns blew me away, I was a little concerned for the models. Were they being actively run with live current? Did they endure hours of rubbing balloons against their heads? Or, was the hair dresser a little too wisp happy? I hope it was the latter.
