(NEW YORK) Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman has spoken to the press easily and often about Marchesa Lusia Casati, the namesake behind her line of mostly-evening apparel. Glenda Bailey was sufficienly intrigued to explore that relationship literally in the upcoming March issue of Harper's Bazaar. Gussied up as the Marchesa herself, Chapman shows off her latest confections with the help of an equally photogenic cheetah. Photographer Peter Lindbergh captured all the fun.
"She squandered all of her money. Millions and millions," Chaplan confided to writer Jenna Gabriel Gallagher, presumably not while a snake slithered around her neck. "It's a good take on what's happening now [in the world]. Her life was one of complete excess; then she had to reassess everything."
While Chapman remains relatively mum about her home life, she does dish about Harvey Weinstein's legendary capacity to emote. "I think my husband might be a bit upset if I walked the cheetahs out naked in the West Village at night," she said. Unsurprisingly, Marchesa's co-founder Keren Craig does not appear in the images. The March issue of Harper's Bazaar, which features Sarah Jessica Parker on the cover, hits newsstands February 17.
