Marchesa is a brand we have all become very accustomed to seeing at nearly every large event requiring a cocktail or evening dress. She’s a staple for actresses, musicians and socialities and being the first to wear one of her designs on a red carpet is an honour few are given. Marchesa is New York’s couture label. The designer for the brand, Georgina Chapman (wife of the infamous Harvey Weinstein), has time and again made Marchesa one of our top three must see shows in NYC. This year was no exception. And Chapman did not let us down completely, she just didn’t live up to our expectations. This is the problem with an amazing designer. You get so good that sometimes you just can’t get better. That being said, she did supply us with four “to-die-for” gowns. We can’t help but expect to see Blake Lively stepping out in the black strapless lace and sheer number.
