At Marchesa‘s fall 2013 fashion show, held at the new York Public Library, dynamic designer duo Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig took their post-show runway bow looking like the epitome of glamorous motherhood. Not only is Chapman eight months pregnant, but Craig just gave birth to her second child less than a week ago. Nonetheless, the unstoppable pair showed an intricately detailed collection of romantic, yet deconstructed looks. After opening the show with a sprinkling of chic day looks, the show gave way to the main attraction: red carpet-worthy gowns featuring standout draping, embroidery, and sheer overlays in rich colors like amethyst, fuchsia, and blood red. Marchesa fans like Naomi Watts and Amy Adams will have plenty of options come Oscar night. See our favorite looks in the gallery!
