Move over, Eloise. A new fable unfolded at the Plaza Hotel on Tuesday afternoon when celeb-loved fashion house Marchesa took over the storied spot, creating a fashionista’s fairytale in the elegant Palm Court.

Supermodels such as Karen Elson wore tulle and chiffon confections, gliding and weaving slowly between paths of ballroom chairs filled with the likes of Rachel Zoe and Rodger Berman, Naomi Campbell, Emma Roberts, Mandy Moore, Michelle Trachtenberg and Kelly Osbourne.

“I loved how elegant every detail was … every aspect, every detail in those dresses is just insanely beautiful,” Osbourne told PEOPLE after the show. “Ah-maz-ing … that’s three words,” stylist Brad Goreski added. “Gorgeous setting, great music. Every single details was perfect.”

Tuesday marked the first runway show in a while for co-designers Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman — recently, they’d held presentations, where models stand still. “I think it was really smart for them to show the gowns moving,” Goreski said. “On this caliber of model, like Karen Elson, Karolina Kurková, Karlie Kloss, Jordan Dunn, it’s amazing to see the gowns moving, to be seen the way they need to be seen.”

From the sounds of it, Osbourne hopes to be seeing the gowns on herself sometime soon. “Yes, I want all of the dresses,” she said. “They are the kind of dresses you want to put on and just dance around your bedroom for hours and hours and hours, knowing that you have a dress that beautiful.”

The first dress is just strange. The second one would be fine if it had a better torso. The third one is just gorgeous.
