Celebrity stylists anxiously await Marchesa’s fashion show every season, and rightfully so—every piece from the new fall collection could end up on the red carpet. Inspired by William Adolphe Bouguereau’s portrait “A Soul Brought to Heaven,” designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig produced an angelic collection featuring shimmering gowns concocted from gold lamé, crystal-embroidered illusion lace, and layered tulle. Some designs were so large they skimmed the feet of guests in the front row, which included Rachel Zoe, Stacy Keibler, and Jenna Dewan-Tatum. Even the accessories had a heavenly appeal, from the Christian Louboutin shoes to the Lorraine and Ofira Schwartz jewelry. See our favorite looks in the gallery!
