Blake Lively in Marchesa Resort 2011
Blake Lively wore this beautiful Marchesa number on the red carpet this week. When I first saw the photo she was standing with Michael Kors, and I assumed he had designed the gown. Then this morning I went looking for the photo and more information on the event. I was stunned to find out that it was Marchesa, as I am not usually a fan of their designs.
Marchesa is brilliant, beautiful, and obviously beloved amongst the Hollywood crowd. However, more often than not, I find the pieces a little too frilly or too ornate. Major points on this print though. Exotic wins over cutesy!
The dress comes from the Resort 2011 collection - which is undeniably stunning. There is a very strong tribal theme which I just love. Best thing I found online today!
