Last Friday evening I had the fortune to go to one of Vera Wang's Open House events in her NY flagship boutique in celebration of her Spring 2011 Collection, thanks to the wonderful Deborah Lauren of City Sweets & Confections.

I have to say, I was amazed by the collection. The gowns were not just wedding gowns. They were pieces of art, like a Botticelli.

The detail was beguiling - from the asymmetrical gathering to the ornate bodices, handpainted lace and fluffy tulle.

You couldn't help but stare and touch and desperately desire to try one on and magically start dancing a perfect Viennese waltz like Sleeping Beauty around an enchanted garden or spectacular ballroom.

See the beauty for yourself below...

On a side note, I have to say, Deborah's cupcakes at the event (along with the champagne) were the perfect compliment to Vera's gowns...fluffing frosting and moist cake that was delicious and incredibly addictive.
