Neil Gaiman wrote this fairy tale short film about a girl that can fly
Yahoo News - over 3 years
In an effort to promote its DSLR cameras as filmmaking tools, Canon launched a promotion called Project Imagination with the help of director Ron Howard. As part of the challenge, several high-profile celebrities stepped behind the camera to make short films of their own, with fashion designer Georgina Chapman directing A Dream of Flying. Written by none other than Neil Gaiman, it's the story of a young girl with the ability to fly — a skill that she's admonished for exploring rather than simple accepting her station as an ordinary human being. ...

Alyssa Milano Lands A Very Fashionable Hosting Gig
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Alyssa Milano may not be known for her fashion expertise, but the "Who's The Boss?" star sure knows television. That's why it makes (some) sense that Milano is the new host of "Project Runway All Stars." The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reveals that Lifetime has tapped the actress for the third season of the "Project Runway" spinoff series. Milano will be joining our favorite chatty designer, Isaac Mizrahi, and the oh-so-glam Georgina Chapman of Marchesa, who both are returning judges. Since "Project Runway" has become a household TV staple, Milano has big shoes (stilettos?) to fill -- models Angela Lindvall and Carolyn Murphy have each hosted the previous two seasons of "All Stars," while Heidi Klum has hosted the entire 14-season run of the original show. So unlike the typical runway-walking host, Milano's fashion resume might seem a bit skimpy. (She does have a clothing and jewelry line, though.) Perhaps a little Hollywood star power is just what the show needs t ...

Marchesa Designer Reveals Her Secrets To Creating Gorgeous Gowns
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
For Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, being pregnant has changed her design process completely. Chapman, who debuted Marchesa's fall 2013 bridal collection in October, told CultureMap Houston Thursday that she has felt an "incredible rush of creativity" while pregnant (she's expecting her second child with her husband, studio executive Harvey Weinstein, any day). "I am dramatic in my design approach to begin with, but when I’m pregnant, I tend to unleash even more of that fantastical thinking," she said. She also revealed that she never designs bridal gowns with trends in mind, preferring instead to focus on inspiration, mood and the overall silhouette. The Marchesa aesthetic of feminine touches, dramatic flair and attention to detail are applied to both her red carpet and bridal gowns, she said. "I think about everything from structure, style and fabrics, to how the gown will look in photos and the style of wedding," Chapman said. "We do work with themes in our ...

Kerry Washington Ditched Custom-Made Marchesa Oscars Gown at the Last Minute
US Magazine - almost 4 years
Anne Hathaway wasn't the only starlet who made a last-minute dress swap on Oscars night. Django Unchained actress Kerry Washington also had a change of heart -- or, rather, of clothes -- before walking the red carpet at L.A.'s Dolby Theatre on Sunday, Feb. 24. PHOTOS: What the stars wore to the 2013 Oscars Washington, 36, was a hit in a coral satin strapless gown by Miu Miu, with Swarovski crystal embellishment on the bodice.

'Project Runway: All Stars': Redesign On The Runway
Huffington Post - about 4 years
It was a first -- and an incredibly high pressure situation for two of the contestants -- on "Project Runway: All Stars." When the judges couldn't decide which of the bottom two designers to eliminate, they decided on an impromptu challenge. It would happen right there on the runway. The designers were given one hour to deconstruct their dresses and repurpose them into entirely new looks. The judges hoped that this daunting task would help them make their decision. It didn't. Instead, both designers simply blew them away with what they were able to accomplish in that extraordinary situation. "My mouth just dropped to the floor when both of your looks came out, because for one hour it’s just kind of extraordinary what you’ve done," Georgina Chapman said. Cynthia Rowley took it one step further with her comment, saying, "I think it’s a hilarious f*ck you to all of us, I’m sorry!" In the end, Uli Herzner managed to avoid elimination, making it into the Final 3. For Jo ...
