Breathtaking! That’s one word to summarize Marchesa Spring/Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection. Simply breathtaking. Above, handpainted black on white strapless ball gown; below, beautiful one-shoulder ruffle mermaid gown. Oh so gorgeous!
Caught in a web — hanging embellishments give these pretty white dresses a tougher edge.
Beautiful draping on these mini dresses. Quick, someone needs to wear one of these to a red carpet event.
More short dresses with fantastic detailing. Side note: want the shoes on the left and that clutch!
The entire collection is strangely familiar yet refreshingly beautiful. These two are the bolder pieces from the set - an exquisite purple painted strapless gown and a gorgeous sheer peplum gown trimmed with black flourishes.
The eponymous Marchesa style was also updated using new treatments and fabrics. Look at this unusual beauty, with an almost paper doily-esque quality, featuring cutout detail on large ruffles.
