The 10 Best Dresses of 2010

India, Marchesa

Designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig debuted their first bridal line for Marchesa in April of this year, a moment we anticipated with bated breath. Since Marchesa evening gowns make frequent appearances on the red carpet, from a gold beaded column gown for Sandra Bullock to a black rosette-bedecked minidress for Heidi Klum, we knew we were in for some serious glamour. The whimsical elements—unfurling spirals of plissť tulle, a flurry of feathers on pleated silk organza—came as a surprise, and felt original, spirited, and carefully measured. We chose one standout from the collection to appear on the cover of several Fall/Winter 2010 editions of Brides Local Magazines, while the gown we show here highlights the year's biggest fashion trend: the one-shoulder neckline.
