Design house Marchesa has long been like the runner-up for best supporting actress:  stunning and never quite taken seriously. For years, Marchesa's creations have been passed over as so much eye candy. Stars love the gowns, but the fashion elite have been much more reserved ...Marchesa is Hollywood courted, but never haute couture. However, a few forays into Indie style (body suits?) and their long term staying power may finally win Marchesa the Oscar. And based on the Spring 2011 collection, I think it's time to say, "the envelope please!"

Be still my beating heart. Love the first and last ones in particular. It'd be a nice change to see some more pattern on the red carpet -- and these really do show you how you can wear pattern and still look formal/knock it out of the park.

These were just gorgeous. I've long been a fan of Marchesa and have to agree with your "runner up" analogy.
