From the moment I stepped into the bright, polished lobby of the JW Marriot Hotel at L.A. Live for the 4th annual Enzoani Fashion Event, I knew I was in for a treat. And I was so right.

Anyone can scrape together a party, but the folks at Enzoani know how to throw a bash in style. To celebrate the unveiling of their 2011 Enzoani collections, including Blue by Enzoani, LOVE collection and Bridal collection, as well as the North American debut of their Holland bridal line Modeca, hundreds of retailers, media and celebrities gathered for a formal dinner and runway show. I was fortunate enough to receive an invitation to the star-studded affair (actresses like Garcelle Beauvais, Charlotte Ross and Ming-Na Wen were in attendance) where I sipped on lemonade raspberry martinis and noshed on filet mignon and a tiramisu chocolate bomb that was...well, the bomb.

And then there were the clothes. Dozens of exquisite, beautifully crafted, European-inspired dresses parading down the runway one after the other for a total of 78 looks. I didn't dare blink for fear of missing a moment of the show. It's no wonder that Enzoani is one of the most respected brands in bridal fashion. I adored their vibrant colors and attention to detail, from the ladylike pockets on a one-shoulder cocktail number to the intricate beaded sash on a flowing purple dress.

Clearly, the geniuses behind Enzoani have also mastered the art of fit; one of my pet peeves when trying on formal gowns is that my shape gets lost in all the fabric and embellishment. Not so with Enzoani. Each dress is flattering, carefully designed to accentuate its wearer's natural waist and mold to curves perfectly. The result? The kind of gloriously feminine, sophisticated evening attire that every woman needs in her wardrobe for that cocktail party or wedding just around the corner.
