a beautiful friendship

Marchesa co-founders Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig have made a career out of high glamour. Favored by celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway, Sienna Miller and Jessica Alba, Marchesa's dramatic gowns are regular fixtures at red carpet events.

Stila has collaborated with Marchesa for their last four runway shows, creating feminine looks that compliment the brand's delectable gowns. Building further on this partnership, Stila will release The Backstage Beauty Collection this fall. The line includes three limited-edition palettes in pewter, black and red, each accented with a detachable, faux leather rosette. Individual Stila shadows sell for $18 a pop, so with three shadows, a mini kajal eyeliner and beautiful packaging, the palettes are a great deal at $40.

Chapman and Craig also designed a pair of lipsticks that will be added to the permanent line. Craig's color, a soft nude, and Chapman's color, a sheer red, were directly inspired by the look that Stila created for Marchesa's Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear Collection. Each will retail for $22.

The collection will be part of Stila's Fall 2008 Color Collection, available in August, exclusively at Sephora.
