Hello, Jenny Packham!

I pretty much died and went to heaven last Friday evening.  I was beyond fortunate to attend the Jenny Packham fashion show at the V&A.  The show took place in the room that houses the sweeping paintings of Raphael.  Beneath these grand pieces of art, Jenny Packham's glittery, diaphanous designs came down the catwalk.  The intricacy of the dresses' beading against the gossamer fabrics was really something to behold in person.  I'm officially hooked on fashion shows.
Holy heavens, I couldn't get enough of the these cheeky fascinators the museum volunteers wore!
Blair wore it first: Leighton Meester wore this dress on an episode of Gossip Girl.
Does this look familiar?  While Kate Middleton did not wear this specific dress, she did wear a dress made out of this fabric while she was on the 2011 Royal Tour of North America.
Golden Globes alert!  Sandra Bullock wore this dress to the 2011 Golden Globes.
Fit for a Duchess!  Kate Middleton wore this dress shortly after her wedding to the ARK Gala.
The models were so young, tall and willowy.  I met this model after the show.  We talked for a bit, and I was taken by how sweet, radiant and poised she was.  This picture does not do her justice!
