In a time when it's considered de rigor to be undone, Georgina Chapman is like a breath of fresh air. The antithesis of Alexander Wang's and Erin Wasson's too-cool-for-school aesthetic which seems to have infected the entire of Manhattan's fashion set, she brings effortless glamour to the New York social scene.
No one is a better ambassador to Marchesa label than she is. Almost exclusively photographed in Marchesa, she wears the feathers and embellishment that has been synonymous with the brand with ease. To high-octane events she wears couture-like ensembles like those that she outfits her star clientele in. One of my favourite looks was the dress she wore to the MET gala a year ago that seemed to have been dipped in liquid gold.
More oftenly though she pairs short cocktail dresses, embellished in a gamut of ways, with her beloved sky-high Louboutins. While this lady obviously takes immense pleasure in the art of appearance, her outfits are by no means constrained to the fantastical dresses she creates with Keren Craig. For more casual events she demonstrates her ability to blend in with the downtown crowd by wearing in silk pants dripped in beading paired with a basic black tank. What sets her apart from them however is her poise as she puts on even the simplest of clothing with the same grace as when she wears the many dreamy creations from her own label.-Hairin
