All eyes have been on the streets and runways of New York Fashion Week, but another city caught our eye as well. Celebs flocked to Canada for photo calls and premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival – and as always, they brought their red carpet A-game.

The Rue holiday party is fast approaching, and the entire office is abuzz with one seemingly simple question: What are you wearing? But – as any girl can tell you – that question is most definitely not simple. Finding that perfect dress is far easier said than done.

Unless, of course, you have the help of, say… a couture designer. Like Georgina Chapman of Marchesa.

That’s right. We’ve teamed up with luxury charity auction site Charitybuzz – which has raised more than $65 million for nonprofits worldwide by auctioning exclusive access to the world’s biggest celebs and brands – to offer a fashion lover’s dream experience: an intimate shopping and styling experience with Georgina herself.

Included? A dress from Marchesa’s line (which Georgina will oh-so-expertly style), a custom fitting with an in-house seamstress, dress delivery, and more.

Finding that perfect dress is suddenly yesterday’s news. And better yet, net proceeds benefit Rose Children’s Home in Delhi, India, a charity which provides a long-term, safe haven – as well as education, healthcare, and livelihood skills – to abandoned and vulnerable girls under the age of 18.

Now, that is glamour you can feel good about.

Personal Styling by Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman opens Monday, December 10, at 11AM ET.

When we heard “vintage couture,” we had to sit down with the woman responsible for finding these iconic treasures and delivering them to our Members. Here, Judy talks about her love for vintage and gives us an insider’s guide to shopping these must-have heirlooms.

Rue La La: We dream of waking up and owning a fabulous shop like Madison Avenue Couture. How did that come to be?
Judy: One day I decided to leave the corporate world behind and embrace something I always loved:  fashion. I would spend hours searching for fashion treasures, be it from current collections or from the past. I looked at the art of fashion and why certain designers have a place in history and why some of their pieces are truly special. I became a collector of pieces from certain designers and fashion eras. Initially, our shop sold only contemporary couture, but we found that many of our clients loved to add vintage pieces to their wardrobe. I will admit that I often don’t want to part with the pieces, as they are truly special. But, our clients share my pleasure of owning and wearing the pieces they purchase.
