Marchesa is already loved by stylish stars like Kate Hudson, Anne Hathaway and Halle Berry, and we can now add Nicole Richie to the list — but was she shopping for anything in particular when she dropped by the line’s presentation this afternoon? Making a dazzling appearance in a frothy white dress by the line, Richie tells PEOPLE, “I truly loved everything.” And while Richie may have stayed mum on her motives for dropping by, other than affirming that Georgina Chapman is one of her favorite designers, the whole Chelsea Art Museum was buzzing about her upcoming nuptials. “I congratulated her on her engagement,” stylist Phillip Bloch tells PEOPLE. “I said, ‘Can you believe he kept it a secret that long?’ And she said, ‘Thanks to good friends.'” And does Bloch think any of the dresses in the Marchesa collection would work as a wedding gown? “Oh, yes. I can see her doing something short, a little bit unique, not the classic. She likes the vintage feel. There was this pink, one-shouldered gown. I bet this is where she gets her wedding dress, because she’s worn them a lot and they’re friendly. I would imagine Marchesa is at the top of the list.” Star-fave jeweler Lorraine Schwartz seconded the thought, telling PEOPLE “Marchesa is the only way to go.” Marchesa designer Chapman, was thrilled by Nicole’s appearance in one of her archive designs. “She looked beautiful,” added Chapman. “She looks beautiful in everything.” And would Chapman like to custom design a gown for the wedding? “Of course,” said Chapman. “Who wouldn’t?” –reporting by Jeffrey Slonim

I think that whatever Nicole picks is going to be amazing. She is truly a fashion icon for the younger generation.

She would look great in Marchesa, but I disagree with Bloch. I think she’ll do something long and a bit more traditional. She’s settled down a bit with kids and I think she wants a true wedding for the kids. Whatever she chooses will be spectacular though.

I have wrote two comments that you will not put on so evidently either Nicole is head of this article or if not then it is someone that must lick her butt.

Glad Jon & Kate Gosselin’s Elizabeth Town, PA. Home was finally sold- at a different price! It sucks that Morgan Freeman still can’t home his right man after that August 2008 Car Crash!

That would be very nice of what Nicole Richie is doing, if it’s true?

Jennifer on

An odd-looking woman with no discernable talent who only has attention because she’s Lionel’s daughter. A truly strange fascination you Americans have with her. Very, very strange.

Besides, who cares about her wedding, when she and her baby daddy already shack up and have two children together? They SHOULD be married!
