Georgina Chapman

"It would be like being asked to give up one of your children."

While a student at Chelsea College of Art & Design, British born Georgina Chapman met Keren Craig (the other half of Marchesa). In 2004 they launched Marchesa, named after Marchesa Luisa Casati an Italian aristocrat best known for walking around Venice naked underneath her furs. Casati saw herself as a work of art and to some extent Chapman identifies with this sentiment which is evident in her designs and personal style. Her dresses typically feature built-in corsets, elaborate beading, and/or hand placed feathers. Within a few years of starting Marchesa, the company was named one of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund's top ten finalists. The designs are now being worn by some of Hollywood’s leading ladies including, Jennifer Lopez, Cate Blanchett, Jessica Alba, and Renée Zellweger.

Life Facts:
Multitasking is second nature for Georgina Chapman, who can list model, actor and fashion/costume designer on her CV. For Chapman, 'it's all about acting and clothes and to choose between the two is difficult; 'it would be like being asked to give up one of your children,' says the 29-year-old. 'And it works well: one seems to feed off the other.' In 2004, Georgina met her future husband, Harvey Weinstein, cofounder of Weinstein Co. and Miramax.

I loved Taraji P. Henson as well. She looked flawless from head to toe. I also liked Jaimie Alexander, it was different and fun. What was Heidi thinking? Her dress was definitely my least favorite.
Hey what was your favorite and least favorite dresses from the Emmy's? One of my favorites was Taraji P. Henson and I'm sorry but Heidi Klum's dress was a hot mess!
And if you really want to be dapper in your suit, match the tie to a handkerchief. Your shirt can also be a bold color or print. Have fun with your outfits!
I think the tie is the one place the man can show some individuality and style, so I would say go ahead an wear vibrant colors or fun, funky prints, whatever. I think it would be fun!
