I have to hand it to them. Marchesa do know how to make modern style prom dresses suitable for any red carpet event.
I guarantee that at least one celeb will wear one of their Autumn/Winter 2009 creations to the Oscars.
So here's what I would recommend if I were a stylist.
I would love, love, love to Chloe Sevigny or Maggie Gyllenhaal turn up in this fabulous jumpsuit.
Keira Knightly or Marisa Tomei in . . . .
Emma Watson in this dress but loose the bow and go for a thin belt or long necklace.
And I'd like to see Gwyneth Paltrow showing of her lovely legs in this little number . . . .
