fantasy friday: marchesa fall 2010

7 years ago

When I saw the photos of Blake Lively in this blue Marchesa number at the Met Gala last week, I was immediately forced to see what else {the oh-so-chic} Georgina Chapman had been busy designing.

Marchesa is absolutely my number one choice when it comes to showstopping ensembles and gowns. I've never met a piece I wasn't 100% in love with, and the dresses are always my favorite among any event or awards show. Everything Marchesa is grand, grand, grand - and always a work of art. The craftsmanship is sheer perfection, and the designs are anything but ordinary.  I'm always *in love* with the all of the fanciful details - the feathers, the outrageous ruffling, and the most intricate beading.

You want to make a statement? Marchesa is the only way to go, dolls.

Below are {some of} my top picks among the Fall 2010 Collection. I think the first dress masterpiece is my favorite - black and white is always chic, but this showcases the classic pairing in such a fresh, never-been-seen-before way. I also included the shot of the blue dress Blake wore so that you could see it on the model. I personally think the always stunning Ms. Lively wears it better, but that may be because I'm unfairly obsessed with her - I have a very close friend who I swear is her twin, and seeing Blake always makes me think of her. And just take a look at the black and white number - I am not a tattoo person by any means, but that is artwork, darlings.

“We're women designing for women. We know how they feel in a beautiful dress. That's our focus right now.”
