True to form, Marchesa's Fall 2012 collection was filled with show stoppers, and with award season in full swing, it is certainly fitting. Many a starlet have donned a Marchesa gown on Oscar night and walked away with a golden statue. Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig play to their strengths, crafting beautiful evening gowns and cocktail dresses with breathtaking details and embellishments. A voluminous feathered concoction in white was the stuff of fantasy, but several pieces, the shorter options especially, had a sense of ease in their movement down the runway. A draped dress in bronze was particularly effortless. In the past, the shoes have been a collaboration with Christian Louboutin, and I'm not sure who the ladies partnered with this season, but the footwear was a incohesive distraction. I didn't mind the latticed sandals/boots, but the Victorian looking pumps were a missed opportunity. Shoes aside, I'm sure we'll be seeing a few of these looks when Oscar night rolls around.
