One of my favorite shows to hit up during NYFW is Marchesa because so many young up-and-comers like to rock their dresses on the red carpet throughout awards season. The Marchesa show is held at The Plaza every year so therefore the crowd is always a little overgrown thanks to the tourists, but once the arrival rush is over and the crowd dies down I usually don’t mind waiting it out until departures.
This year the guest list was a little pale, but there were still some fun Fashion Week sightings like Rachel Zoe, Brad Goreski, and Nina Garcia. There was also the amazon-like Stacy Keibler (unfortunately she was George Clooney-less), and Mrs. Jenna Dewan-Tatum who I included in my NextMovie column last week!
My favorite guest of the show however was former ‘Gossip Girl‘ star Taylor Momsen who can occasionally look a little scary, but the night of the Marchesa show she looked phenomenal! On her way out of The Plaza she stopped for a few pictures but since it was so crowded I waited for her near her car in hopes of getting a picture with her, and I definitely lucked out! When I asked for the picture she said, “Okay, last one!” I imagine she was pretty cold in that lace dress, plus we were kind-of/sort-of in the middle of the street in front of The Plaza, but I was really glad to get the picture! Not only do I love her band, but she is also the last of the original main ‘Gossip Girl‘ cast that I hadn’t met. I now officially have pictures with all of them!
