Marchesa was a perrenial red carpet favorite but the label has suffered since allegations against Weinstein were made in October 2017.

No stars have worn the label at a red carpet event since then – until 33-year-old Scarlett’s Met Gala appearance. 

The Avengers actress wore a form-flattering burgundy and pink design with several floral embellishments around the neckline and waist.
