Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig are not known for simplicity or restraint. Their layers of cascading tulle and pleated organza have made the luxurious dresses a red carpet staple. However, their very civilized show at the posh Plaza Hotel was slightly more earthbound. Inspired by a watery painting by artist Ilya Repin, the pair referenced undersea creatures, but many of the dresses looked far more inspired by the 1920s than jellyfish. The platinum fringe dress and art deco-inspired beaded bugle dress were a surprising change of direction -- lacking the usual ruffles and flounce. Fortunately Craig and Chapman also mixed plenty of opulent eye candy into their aquatic journey.
