Lawren is a longtime fan of Marchesa designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, and though it was a few seasons past, the duo's Fall 2013 collection — with its Far East influences and intricate embroidery — spoke to the stylist.
"We have always been huge fans of Georgina and Keren," she says. "I traveled to London in early August to meet with Marchesa. We have long wanted to work together, and the 2014 Emmys were the perfect fit. I Instantly fell in love with this dress for Christina. I remember seeing it on the runway and just loving the regal feel it had."
So what did Christina think of the choice?
"I showed it to Christina with the pitch that it was contemporary but still embodied a classic royal dress," she reveals to us. "She loved the appliqué because it reminded her of a sash or uniform. So we ran with it."
