Continuing to draw on their brand's DNA, Chapman and Craig showed a series of soft pink numbers that featured signature rosebud draping. The flirty little cocktail sheath cut from a stretchy silk crepe was a particular standout. That also spoke to Marchesa's increased emphasis on more casual eveningwear and separates. Highlights included embellished peasant blouses and (gasp!) dressy trousers. On the vampier side of the equation was a one-shouldered lace gown boasting a toothsome thigh-high slit; A-list models will be lining up to borrow it for their next major event. Elsewhere, a long black tulle style with sheer sleeves and delicate floral thread-work was just the thing you could picture someone like Eva Green donning on the red carpet.
