Inspired by Francisco de Goya’s “Portrait of Maria Teresa de Vallabriga on Horseback,” and bearing the Marchesa brand name, this collection was bound to be opulent and romantic, and it definitely did not disappoint on either front. It’s never subtle or underplayed with Marchesa; it’s always big: dramatic silhouettes, the very finest materials, impeccable craftsmanship. It’s all showy and attention-seeking, which is why we’d love to see plenty of these gowns on an Oscars red carpet. They’re perfectly suited for it and you can’t take your eyes off them.
