Along with Rag & Bone and Marchesa, and with the help of the CFDA and Vogue, the brand will be showing this summer in a certain mega global market.
Bridal collections are shown a year in advance, and judging from the looks sent down the spring 2014 runways, brides will be sporting some untraditional looks next season.
The up-and-coming starlet stole the red carpet in her maroon and gold Marchesa gown, and made us totally re-think the idea that the fishtail trend was over. Looking at these photos, we just want to zip up, and spin around, in something equally chic.
It would appear that the lovely Kerry Washington is the latest of a string of starlets to opt for a different gown mere moments before they hit the red carpet.
It has certainly been a big year for Georgina Chapman. Since January, the Marchesa designer has announced plans to launch a lower-priced line, crafted a collection of fashionable football gear (seriously), designed the gown for one of the most-hyped celebrity weddings, and leant her considerable talents to Project Runway: All Stars, where she serves as a judge alongside Isaac Mizrahi and host Carolyn Murphy. Oh, and did we mention she just announced her second pregnancy? Because yep, that too.
One often associates Marchesa with show-stopping gowns and dresses fit for princesses — not athletic wear. But co-founder Georgina Chapman has just launched a limited-edition tee inspired by the New York Jets, and while this is certainly odd, the label has partnered with Playboy before, so stranger things have happened.
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian spoiled us with not one, but two Kimye appearances at New York Fashion Week on Wednesday. Lucky us?
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds made headlines this weekend with their surprise wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. And while some details emerged quickly — Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine performed, Bette Midler serenaded the crowd, and a cake was trucked in from Virginia — the one thing everyone really wanted to know remained inscrutably underwraps, which is to say: what did she wear?
Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron showed up at the London premiere of Snow White and the Huntsman in similar sheer dresses. Did their stylists plan it?
Last month, Marchesa was discussing the possibility of launching a contemporary collection with LF USA, the same group that saved Vena Cava. Now it’s been confirmed that the two are indeed in business together.
Big news: Marchesa is discussing the possibility of a contemporary line with LF USA, an investment and supply chain company — and the same people who saved Vena Cava with a cash infusion just last week. According to WWD, details are still fuzzy, but an announcement will be made soon.
We love Glee as much as the next teen-obsessed fashion blogger, but Dianna Agron and Lea Michele’s appearances on tonight’s red carpet left us sorely disappointed.
We thought we were done with our awesome (if somewhat exhausting!) Emmy red carpet coverage, when we realized we’d inadvertently forgotten to highlight three of our favorite style stars: Christina Hendricks, Elisabeth Moss, and Kiernan Shipka, all of whom work on Mad Men and all of whom wore spectacularly stunning dresses.
Last month Marchesa announced it would be creating a one-off version of the iconic Playboy Bunny costume to celebrate the opening of a new Playboy club in London. Now Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig‘s creation is complete, and it made its debut to an enthusiastic crowd in Britain this week.
Updating a classic costume is always going to be a tenuous operation (just look at all the drama over Wonder Woman’s new getup). So we have to hand it to the ladies at Marchesa for a job well done on their answer to the Playboy Bunny costume, the black one-piece with bunny ears that has been the base of the brand’s image for decades.
Where there’s a red carpet, there’s a Blake Lively, but Thursday marked almost three weeks without Karl Lagerfeld‘s favorite American. And while we were totally prepared to write up Julianna Hough’s ensemble in her stead, we woke up this morning to not one but two Lively looks. In honor of the fourth day of CinemaCon (and her award for Breakthrough Performer Of The Year), Lively spent the day in white Dolce & Gabbana and the evening in a blood red, tutu-inspired dress by Marchesa.
Admittedly, the bevy of expensive gowns at this year’s Oscars wasn’t the most exciting we’ve ever seen, but that didn’t stop a few looks from standing out. And among the ones that did, there were some pretty clear cut trends. Take a look at the colors and ideas that dominated the night and let us know if you see any trends you’ll be taking off the red carpet.
…Olivia Wilde, hands down. As Justin put it, “It’s like a pair of Louboutins swallowed a box of fireworks.” And though they spent most of the night hidden under the big skirt of her super sparkly Marchesa gown, Wilde certainly made a concerted effort to show them off.
The holidays are here and hopefully you’re either already home or en route to celebrate with your family and friends. But if you’re looking for some yuletide inspiration, WWD caught up with fashion’s biggest names to ask them what their plans where, what their wish lists looked like, and what they plan on wearing. Unsurprisingly, the results ran the gamut from the absurd to the kind, to the downright hilarious. Our favorites — made up of Prabal Gurung, Georgina Chapman, Ben Taverniti, and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld — after the jump.
