Before James Cameron’s “Avalon” or Tim Burton’s “Alice,” there was Georgina Chapman, sculpting shooting stars and other “3-D accents” out of tulle. She continues on, this time inspired by willful nineteenth century dancer and courtesan Lola Montez. As the saying goes,  
“Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets,” and she’d surely want any number of the beauties in this line.

Models stood like exotic creatures in perilously high (painful) heels, adorned in feathers, organza, chiffon. A red suede strapless recalls folded Valentine’s Day hearts; embroidered paisley on nude netting looks tattooed on; and tulle pinwheels spring out in all directions.

The best thing? No 3-D glasses required.
