Blind Item #2

There might end up being a show for this fashion line at NYFW but the creator is going to have a tough time getting any celebrity to show up for the show. It wouldn't shock anyone if they canceled the show a day or two before it is set to happen.

Georgina Chapman

And Marchesa

Don Kieballs said...

Meghan McCain will be the only one there

Do Tell said...

She's divorcing him. I don't understand punishing her for what he did. I really doubt she knew what he was up to.

Sd Auntie said...

He stipulated that they must wear Marchesa or else...

Do Tell said...

I get that, but some of these people were friends of hers.

DonnaMarie said...

@Do Tell-Gimme a break. I KNEW what he was up to and I never met the man and don't share a bed with him.

Georgina Chapman is a strikingly beautiful and creative woman with an extensive art background. She comes from a wealthy English family. How she ended up with Harvey is beyond me, but without her class he would have never risen to the heights he did. That's my personal take, perhaps not yours. Her dresses have always delighted me with their fairy-tale quality and lavishness. I do hope she does not fall by the wayside professionally because of this. Did she know he was carrying on like he was? Of course. She had the beautiful homes, the kids, the career, and foreign trips and Cannes Yachts. She probably preferred he mess with anyone but her as time went on. Everyone is going to suffer on this one.

DonnaMarie said...

She should be hired as Melania Trumps personal in-house designer. Perfect match.

Cole Gate said...

That line of clothing is STUNNING! Lot's of talent there...Wish I could afford it.

I don’t care what she knew I just want to see beautiful clothes

M Styles said...

She knew what was up even before she married him
This is called karma.

Cail Corishev said...

Is she persona non grata because she's associated with toxic Harvey, or because she bolted to Huma's side instead of doing the "supportive wife at his side" thing?

just sayin' said...

cail corishev - huma stuck by weiner for a long time, like hillary did with bill, until the underage stuff came out. that and rape aren't acceptable reasons for a wife to stay by a man's side. she knew what he was doing and stayed with him until the criminal behavior was revealed.

Count Jerkula said...

Her clothes only got over because of Harvey's stroke. Now she's just another ham and egger.

Glue said...

I have a feeling Georgina knew.
Don't know much about her to make an opinion, but I do know one thing: I didn't like her as a judge on Project Runway.

AKA said...

I love her dresses they are so beautiful and feminine. That said I can't imagine any celebrity wanting to be seen at her show.

Don Kieballs said...

If Harvey Weinstein was forcing actresses to wear Marchesa, I can completely understand them not wanting to wear it by choice now. It's a company that was built on Weinstein's dime and promoted by his victims.

Ervin Thompson said...

Siriano (sp) or Marchesa do not forget Michael Kors

Cinabun said...

Or wear her clothing...

Fred LeBlanc said...

Oh she knew what he was doing, but as long as he was funding her business she didn't care. Filing for divorce was about protecting the brand.

Violet said...

Of course she knew he was trading movie parts for body parts, but I doubt she knew he was engaging in out-and-out rape. Slimy deals are so endemic to H'wood, that there was no reason to suspect him of needing or using physical force.

Boo Hearne said...

Meghan McCain will probably have to skip the fashion week due to her father's illness/death. Her breakdown with Joe Biden was just heartbreaking to watch. I cried for an hour.

Sd Auntie said...

It was very sad to see Megan breakdown. It's always sad to say goodbye!

Terry Teratoma said...

Marchesa is some of the ugliest, tackiest shit out there, and I won't miss it one bit if it bites the dust. But while I fully believe Georgina knew Harvey was up to something, I doubt she knew to what extent, and besides, I don't like blaming her for her husband's actions. I mostly just feel bad for the extremely tricky position she's been put in.

BayAreaGirl said...

@Boo, I see what you’re saying but the timeline doesn’t support the idea that he rose b/c of her. They dated & married around 2004? HW had been an A list producer by the early 90’s. Some have said that he was at his peak in the mid 2000’s. He was able to form TWC after Disney pushed him out & didn’t miss a beat. She is pretty & some of her dresses work well on the red carpet. However, she wouldn’t have been able to own & run her own label at such a young age without his backing.

I'm curious how much culpability all of you place on Georgina for Harvey's misgivings. surely she knew so I don't feel that's up for debate. but her not previously divorcing or walking away ,doesn't that somehow signal her approval? what do you do if you are her in this scenario? you ride the wave or dock the ship? I don't feel she should get a free pass in this. is she left being labeled an unknowing moron or a beast? what's lesser of the evil?

Why do women continue to insist on punishing other women for the behavior of men? The female on female abuse must stop!

Snifter said...

Marchesa and Erdem are both terrible, why either brand gets as much attention as they do is beyond me.

@Sandy: Good point; seems it's been that way since the sands of time. She did what she had to do to get ahead, maybe. If the tables were turned we might be saying "Boy, sure took guts to get to the top." etc. Perhaps she'll return to her country of origin for a few years then return. I think her clothes are stunnnning.

Dannette said...

I hope her and her overpriced polyester Cinderella dress success made on the backs of humiliated and cast aside women, flames out painfully and quickly. Wishing for bankruptcy in 2018 and removing her fake smile bony body anywhere but here.

Dannette said...

There are a few commenters here, or maybe just one with several nics, who continually lecture about woman hating woman abuse for holding an unfavorable opinion. Sorry about that, women don't get a pass because they have a vagina. Helpers of abuse have a special place in hell right next to rapists.

micmac said...

Chapman surely knew the talk about Weinstein. I heard about him in early 2001 in London and I have nothing to due with film or tv

Ta dah! said...

Whether she knew or not isn't the point so much as no one wants to hear about or be associated with her anymore. It may not be "fair" but you know what Heidi says about fashion, "One day you're in, the next day you're out!"

She had a good run, but now it's over. It's not like she'll starve, and she could probably use the time to reflect and be with her family.

AngryLiberalKTS. said...

What about Donna Kerin "spelling" didn't she react with the company line when Weinstein was first accused?.

RedDawnHollywood said...

Huma and Hillary will be there. So will Diller's wife. Maybe behind the curtain. Or in the closet.

lucy said...

just to clarify I am not anti-female. my comments are born of my need to seek fairness and justice. it is the libra in me more so than any perceived misogyny.

I took a look at Georgina's dresses and at least half were gorgeous. few bombs but I would say 60% beautiful. too bad she is obvious shitty person and I hope she is as done as he is

Cail Corishev said...

@Just sayin, I wasn't criticizing her for leaving (far from it), just asking an honest question. Harvey is trying to whitewash his image, and I get the sense that some in the industry aren't happy that they had to condemn him to look good for the public. If they're quietly on his side, they might be angry at his wife for not backing him. I dunno, hence my question.

MC98033 said...

Harvey was by all accounts an abrasive bully that threatened and intimidated both men and women into doing his bidding, including forcing actresses to wear Marchesa designs on the red carpet rather than having the freedom to choose a dress of their own liking on such an important night. Whether or not Georgina knew about the rapes, she knew who she married and she was willing to be his accomplice in order to further her own ambitions. She didn't just look the other way, she enabled this vulgar, abusive creature because she too was profiting from his despicable tactics. She is beautiful but certainly not an admirable person in any other respect.
