English designer Jenny Packham has made a name for herself in the fancy fashions circuit, and with good reason. Much to our predicted delight, it was gowns galore at her Fall 2013 show during NYFW. Celebs Vanessa Hudgens and Katherine Heigl were seated front row, snagging the best view of the glamour.

The dresses were draped with romance, adding sensuality with sheer overlays. There were moments of old Hollywood style and grace; it’s no wonder the label has become a red carpet favorite. Feminine forms ranged from sleek and fitted to full skirted elegance. Ornamented with embroideries, beading, and encrusted embellishments, turned more simple looks into stunners. Dreamy shades of peach and sea green get bold with rich red and royal blue.

Low ponies tied off with plain ribbons by hairstylist Jeanie Syfu for TRESemmé complimented beautifully. Make-up artist Talia Shobrook used Laura Mercier products for a dewy glow. Even the nails enhanced the appeal as Essie nail artist Gina Edwards went for a glittery creation to capture extravagance.
