Couture fashion is truly an art form and nobody understood that better than Marchesa at this years' recent New York Fashion Week. Featuring a variety of cocktail dresses and evening gowns, each creation was done in frothy fabrics, sheer lace and gauzy silks. Expert draping and intricate cut-outs were at once elegant and edgy and showed the true genius behind Marchesa designs. Extremely feminine, elaborate designs were featured in a soft palette of creams and whites with hints of faded jade and anchored with black and punches of purple and blue. Each piece was a uniquely creative look with jaw dropping, lust-inducing details with strapless minis and floor-sweeping gowns alike each more breath taking than the last. Differing in design with short hemlines, overwhelming ruffles and tiers and peek-a-boo lace jumpsuits, all pieces were individual but a cohesive collection in direction and beauty and head-turning awe.

After plenty of sleepless nights and countless flights across the world to promote "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" with costar Taylor Lautner (sounds like a good time to me!), all of Kristen Stewart's hard work finally paid off in a series of successful premieres and screenings across the nation. And while she's known for appearing rather, um, unenthusiastic, she has nevertheless become a fashion icon. This time around, she kept things monochromatic (surprise, surprise), but still managed to inject a little variety into her series of minis. In Rome, it seemed as if she would be completely be overpowered by the intense ruffles across her Marchesa one-sleeved dress, but she unexpectedly looked more cheerful than ever. Then in Los Angeles, she switched it up with a textured Elie Saab white dress, paired with suede Louboutin pumps. Later, in New York City, she brightened up considerably (but not in disposition, apparently!), debuting her newly-lightened locks and an RM by Roland Mouret long-sleeved mini.
