Girls aching for a little more coverage: Rejoice! For fashion-forward Marchesa, sleeves ruled. From blousy poet ones and embellished three-quarter lengths to off-the-shoulder styles and sharp, structured sleeves, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig stepped out from beyond the strapless gown this season. One silk-crepe sleeved standout looked minimal from the front, only to reveal a beaded illusion cowl neckline in the back. Despite the daring departure from the sleeveless sweetheart bodice, Marchesa devotees are sure to swoon over delectable gowns (some strapless) with the company's signature feminine flair of delicate frills and oversize bows. See all the dresses from Marchesa's new collection here.
