As stunning as the Duchess of Cambridge【跑狗图每期27码 大全 】 was, more in command of the room, according to some, was anothe【今天开特马几号 】r Brit, Georgina Chapman.

In contrast to th【帝霸 sodu 】e 【2020年50期跑狗图玄机 】Duchess’ smart but rather somber black attire, the Marchesa designer’s pretty flower-print dress, tanned legs and ballerina-style, lace-up pumps were pure New York. With husband Harvey Weinstein very much in the background—“I’m the plus one!” he joked to one guest—Ms. Chapman dazzled with her infectious, easy smile.This holiday season, the 38-ye【跑狗图正版猛虎报 】ar-old founder of red-carpet favorite Marchesa【香港最快开奖结果2016 】, celebrated a banner year. In September, h【跑狗图历史图片 】er fashion line passed i【官方一尾中特网站 】ts 10-year anniversary by showing in London for the first t【750333财神爷心水论坛 】ime. She was soon after rewarded with an appointment to the board of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).“It was a dream of ours one day to show in London where [Marchesa co-【管家婆点特玄机图 动画 】founder Keren Craig] and I started out,” Ms【3的阿福图库 】. Chapman says. “Every show is emotional because you put so much work into it and everyone’s so tired. You’ve given birth to a collection and it’s always a high. But it was a big deal to show in London in front of so many friends 【精准不改料三肖王 】and family.”But this year is only slightly more remarkable for Ms. Chapman than the ones that have gone before. Th【02cm香港马会开奖 】e daughter of millionaire businessman B【2017年134期跑狗图资料 】rian Chapman and journalist Caroline Wonfor was given every advantage from the start, from elite schools to world travel. The curse of many privilegedchildren is that【东方心经a版加大版 】, by virtue of their serendipitous circumstances, they never develop the discipline and drive that made their parents successful. This fate did not befall Ms. Chapman. A creative spirit, arts and fashion design captured her attention early on. By age 13 she had taught herself to sew and began making her own clothing.(Photo by Shea Roggio/For New York Observer)At 18, she whipped up enough money to bounce around Australasia for two years including, in what has now become a famous tale, an ill-advised trek into the Himalayas in flip-flops when she struggled with walking and the insect-life th【2017年51期香港跑狗图 】anks to her footgear. When she returned to London, she threw herself

into studyin【2017年44期新版跑狗图 】g costume design at Wimbledon College of Art and took on three part-time jobs to make ends meet—one as a waitress, one as a coat check girl and one sharpening skis. These jobs didn’t last long after she caught the eye of a modeling agent. She even dabbled in acting, appearing in Shanghai Knights and Match Point. Poised to become famous for her looks, she steered away and stuck to her goals【怎么下载106旧版 】. If her incredible good fortune is enough t

hat Ms. Chapman is clearly appreciative of all the opportunities she has had.“Modeling was fantastic; I studied while earning money in an in【王的妃子一肖 】dustry I wanted to become an important part of. Having the opportunity to wear all th【2020年跑狗图62期图料 】ose incredible dresses helped solidify my feeling that fashion was what I wanted to do.” Acting was part of that baptism, too, and now, years of【98期跑狗新报图 】 red-carpet experience have given the designer an added, unique insight into her 【尾边九作字打一肖 】product.“Part of being a woman designing for a woman means【2016三肖刮刮卡 】 I understand how it must feel to b【财神猛料三肖中特 】e analyzed by thousands of people. At Marchesa, we wan

t women to feel beautiful,” Ms. Ch

apman says. “I understand the pressure these actresses are under. They’re scrutinized from every single angle. It’s a crazy thing.”An empathetic nature accounts in some way for Ms. Chapman’s success. As a judge on Project Runway, she was frequently less harsh than her co-judges, finding positives in even the most ridiculous student creations and encouraging the losers at crunch-time. She often spoke on the show of【港正挂牌小鱼儿玄机 】 recognizing the ambitious spark in contestants that drove her own career.(Photo by Shea Roggio/For New York Observer)Ms. Chapman scored highly as soon as she arrived in New York to promote Marchesa in 2004. From persuading powerful retail

ers to stock her new clothing range, to meeting her notoriously prickly husband Harvey Weinstein, everything more or less just fell into place.【111期:四不像[一肖彩图]已公开! 】 The two met when Mr. Weinstein approac【中特合数公式规律 】hed Ms. Chapman at a party, according to Vogue. “I had no idea who h【2020高清跑狗图1000000人看 】e was,” she t

old the fashion tome. “【香港赢彩网四肖中特 】He’s not a per【彩卷网免费图库 】son you can sort of ignore or brush off. He’s incredibly charming and so charismatic, it sort of draws you in.”The tabloids were quick to credit powerhouse producer Mr. Weinstein for Ms. Chapman’s bur【香港皇家博彩应用 】geoning success. Mr. Weinstein had just spl【马经开奖直播香港结果 】it from ex-wife Eve Chilton, with whom he had three daughters when he met Ms. Chapman in 2004. Outsiders sniped it was certainly convenient for the aspiring designer.But this false assessment ignores the fact that Ms. Chapman is utterly not the type to serve as arm candy. She had already established fashion connections in England before she met Mr. Weinstein, New Yorkers would have bought Marchesa anyway. It could be said that legendary British fashion eccentri

c and star-maker Isabella Blow was Marches【御魂狰二四六 】a’s first fan. Ms. Blow was seated with Ms. Chapman and Ms. Craig at a Louis Vuitton dinner in England wh【二四四天天好彩 玄机图 】en the two were preparing to launch a line of loungewear in the early ’00s. Ms. Blow, who was known for her keen eye for talent, took one look at Ms. Chapman’s self-designed gown, said she and Ms. Craig were crazy to design anything but eveningwear【六肖中四肖多少钱 】 and requested a dress of her own, making it Marchesa’s first commission. Then, Rene Zellweger wore the newly minted British fashion line Marchesa to the 2004 London premiere ofBridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. Her classic, romantic but sexy outfit sent a wave of A-l【九龙图库资料软件下载 】ist actresses running to Ms. Chapman for red-carpet looks. Marchesa designs we【狗引洞中仙打一生肖 】re voluminous and full, reminiscent of Charles James, interrupting the post-grunge, experimental a【丰收论坛 】nd extreme body-con looks on the red carpet at the time.But,【跑狗正版四不像特肖图 】 however you credit the earliest success of Marchesa, the outcome remains the same—the line has grown into an empire including diffusion collection Notte by Marchesa, contemporary line Voyage, plus bridal, handbags, beauty, fine jewelry, fragrance, stationery and tabletop home decor. Her relationship with Mr. Weinstein has also born fruit. The two married in 2007 and have【生财有道图库 】 two children, daughter India Pearl and son, Dashiell, whom she lovingly calls Dashy. Despite the couple’s high profile, their children are kept completely and deliberately out of the spotlight.Ms. Chapman’s star now shines as bright as her husband’s in their respective industries. Her recent appointment to the CFDA board, which brought the total number of board members to a mere 26, provides official recognition of Ms. Chapman’s talents.“I was a little taken aback, I wasn’t expecting it,” she confesse

s. “When we first brought Marchesa to New York, the CFDA helped us find a home here. It’s an incredible honor for me and the CFDA is just an unbelievable organization. I hope this gives me the opportunity to give other 【国家证件综合网查询 】young designers a feeling of a home in New York.”New York is certainly home at this point for Ms. Chapman, a West Village resident

. “For me, it really is about family this time of year,” she says. She recently took her children and a gang of friends to the Jingle【公牛玄机网一句解一肖 】 Ball concert at Madison 【天下彩免费资料大全彩 】Square Garden, which she jokingly calls a “kiddie mosh pit.” The family will spend the holidays in London this year and feast on a Christ【2018年18期马会跑狗图 】mas dinner full of British classics. “I’m quite traditional, I always make mince pies, an English delicacy you can’t really find here. I do a Christmas pudding we pour brandy over and set on fire, which the kids love. We have crackers on the table; instead of a turkey we might do a goose. We sometimes spice up pre-dinner cocktails with a ly【买单买猪中属马打一肖 】chee martini,” Ms. Chapman says. “It’s a time to be indulgent and I’m always a great believer in taking opportunities to be glamorous,” she confesses. “My daughter loves dressing up, too.” The love of glamour is obvious in Marchesa’s clothing; there is a touch of B

arbie dolls about the whole Ch【今晚开什么生肖20201 】apman package, in fact. However, unlike the famously plastic doll, Ms. Chapman’s glamour errs totally toward good taste. Few designers have clothing that spans such a wide range as

Marchesa. Daring, sexy upst

A fashionable end to a fabulous year.
