Marchesa's Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman

Celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Blake Lively and Sarah Jessica Parker love luxe eveningwear label Marchesa's richly embellished dresses. And now, us mere mortals may finally stand a chance of wearing Marchesa creations of our own. The brand's designers, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, are in talks to launch a contemporary line, according to WWD.

Though exact details (like specific prices, retailers and a launch date) haven't yet been released, investment company LF USA is reportedly backing Marchesa's new line. And while Craig and Chapman's slightly lower-priced Notte collection offers Marchesa's trademark gowns and cocktail looks priced in the high hundreds, we're happy that the duo's designs will soon be even more accessible. Prom-goers, start your engines.

Below, check out five lovely—but incredibly pricey—Marchesa looks we hope Craig and Chapman refer to for inspiration as they start their new venture. That is, unless they attempt casualwear....

Now this, ladies and gentlemen, is what a bridesmaid dress should look like if you really love your bridesmaids.
