Designer Georgina Chapman and cofounder Keren Craig launched Marchesa in 2004, seizing the opportunity to dress Renee Zellweger for the premiere of Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. Since then, Chapman told People Magazine, the label has rarely missed a red carpet event.
Pretty much everything Marchesa designs is show-stoppingly gorgeous, and more often than not ends up on the Best Dressed lists. Jennifer Lopez‘s slink gold gown at the 2009 Golden Globes? Marchesa. Blake Lively‘s red confection at CinemaCon 2011? Marchesa.
The list of celebs who call up the New York showroom come awards season (or even just for a premiere) goes on and on and on. Mischa Barton was a Marchesa darling back in her glory days (perhaps they’ll return again), and now the label has made prom queens out of Stacy Keibler and Viola Davis.
