Georgina Chapman - Owner/designer of Marchesa

This English Rose is my style, beauty and fashion icon. Georgina Chapman encapsulates glamour, sophistication and sexiness, perfectly. 

Georgina Chapman began her career as a costume designer after graduating from Wimbledon School of Art in 2001. In 2004 she launched Marchesa with Keren Craig, who she met while they were both students at Chelsea College of Art and Design. Marchesa was named after the scandalous socialite Marchesa Luisa Casati. Born in 1881, Casati triumphed as one of the brightest stars in European society. Possibly the most artistically represented woman in history after Cleopatra and the Virgin Mary. She was well known for her daring fashion choices including parading nude under her furs and wearing live snakes as jewellery. And so, Marchesa was born.
In 2006, Marchesa was named one of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund's top ten finalists and has dressed many red carpet stars including: Blake Lively, Olivia Wilde, Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson. 
Georgia Chapman is currently a judge on America's Project Runway: All Stars which airs on FOX 8, Monday nights at 8.30pm (AEST). 
I personally love Georgina's style, grace and beauty. She truly defines a modern-day woman who has it all: a thriving career, a family and she does it all looking so glamorous! This is why she is my style, beauty and fashion icon.

  1. I have never been able to pull off the slick back pony tail and seeing photos like the bottom right make me so jealous. I even hired a personal stylist from Coathanger with the main task of finding me a new hairstyle, I want that!
