Is Marchesa Ready for a Comeback?
It’s been three months since Vogue ran a puff piece absolving Harvey Weinstein‘s now-ex-wife Georgina Chapman of any guilt after her husband was felled by the #MeToo movement. Chapman’s brand, Marchesa, was implicated in the scandal when it was revealed that Weinstein bullied multiple actresses into wearing Marchesa gowns on the red carpet. However, in an article published by WWD earlier this week, multiple celebrity stylists are quoted suggesting that Marchesa is ripe for a red carpet comeback during next month’s Emmy awards. Micah Schifman, Sarah Silverman’s stylist is quoted as saying, “The bottom line is everyone loves a comeback, especially in Hollywood. We are the quickest to turn our backs and even quicker to open the door on them.” We’ll just have to wait and see. (WWD)

Now, the company has emerged with a reorganization plan that involves widening its appeal to Gen Z by hiring one of its most stratospheric stars. According to a statement from the brand, Hadid represents “the natural choice to meld the iconic essence of the brand with the modern view of its future.” (WWD)
