Marchesa's Resort 2009 Collection
Marchesa's Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig took a trip down the Nile for Resort. Keeping the palette simple—ivory, black, blush—they applied gold Egyptian-style embroideries to striking pleated and draped dresses and gowns, two of which came in a dramatic marble print. Though Chapman and Craig clocked serious tabloid time this weekend dressing WAG Coleen McLoughlin for her wedding to Manchester United soccer player Wayne Rooney, this collection was less headline-making. Still, the characteristically pretty dresses should make any woman feel like a latter-day Cleopatra.
