Michelle Trachtenberg in Marchesa

Michelle Trachtenberg was the belle of the 2011 School of American Ballet Winter Ball in a lilac V-neck silk chiffon Marchesa gown with embroidered bodice.

In true Gossip Girl fashion, the 25-year-old actress topped off her elegant dress with luxe accessories, including a clutch with black crystals, also by Marchesa, and David Yurman Pavé Quad Two-Drop Earrings.

The floor-length number's pale-purple shade perfectly complemented Trachtenberg's pretty matte-pink lips and dark cat-eye lids, while a wavy side-swept ponytail added to the ethereal vibe.
