Daydreaming about Chanel.

When actress Hannah Waddingham took the stage at the 75th Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday night to present the Governors Award to GLAAD, she approached the microphone alongside Colman Domingo, gestured to herself, and confidently told the crowd: “You’re welcome.” What can inspire such confidence? Besides the fact that Waddingham is an Emmy winner herself—and was nominated this year for her work on Ted Lasso—she also arrived in a look handmade for the spotlight: a custom Marchesa Couture gown featuring a deep neckline, illusion tulle, and impeccable crystal embroidery, all paired with Marchesa Fine Jewelry. The dress was four months in the making and came complete with tens of thousands of mixed crystals, opals, and bugle beads. As Waddingham told ELLE.com: It’s “the magic of Marchesa.” Watch it all come together, below.


From drawing to dress. The magic of Marchesa!
