British duo Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig launched Marchesa in 2004, concentrating on fairy-tale-like, heavily-embellished evening gowns. The line was an instant hit, drawing fans including Blake Lively, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez (to name a few).

A-List Applause

This season, as Courtney Love, Jerry Hall Murdoch and Alyssa Milano sat front row, the brand showcased celestial-inspired gowns with a predominant color theme of gold, silver and midnight blue.

"Georgina is an absolutely stunning human being and an incredible designer and so I want to support a new friend," said actress Nina Dobrev.

"I think that what the girls do is amazing. Every time I come to their show it's almost like being part of a dream fantasy. To witness it in person is always pretty awesome," agrees model Coco Rocha.

Behind-The-Scenes Beauty

"For this season for Marchesa we are going to be more fashion-forward. We are using the flat iron, the sides, that's going to be the ponytail. The top part overlaps and falls like a cascade to the back. Because as you know Marchesa is all about femininity and it's about being fairy-like," says hair stylist Antonio Corral Calero.
