I don't usually write about what celebrities are wearing but Marchesa has been something of a red carpet darling this year, which gives me license to write about Georgina Chapman, Keren Craig, (the company's founders and creative minds), and Marchesa's Spring 2010 collection. Olivia Wilde, Heidi Klum, and Sandra Oh wore Marchesa gowns to the Emmy's this year.
Before its debut collection in Spring 2007, the Marchesa name was building hype off the backs of the big name actresses and starlets who donned the brand's creations at major events. Since then, Chapman has turned into a fashion A-lister and editorial favorite, being interviewed and featured in Elle and Vogue articles.
The house was named after the legendary European satorial icon Marchesa Luisa Casati, notorious for her colorful behavior as much as her style. She wore serpents as accessories. Fierce, no?
