Marchesa cancelled its planned February runway show at New York Fashion Week and there has been sniping that the label, which shot to prominence dressing starlets who appeared in Weinstein’s movies, may not survive.
But on Monday, A-lister Scarlett Johansson purposely choose a Marchesa gown to wear to the Met Gala, the most high-profile celebrity fashion event of the year.
Chapman told Vogue she has loyal supporters.
“A lot of people reached out and said, ‘Let me wear something’,” she said.
While Chapman told Vogue she doesn’t consider herself a victim, she broke down in tears when talking about her son and daughter.
“What are their lives going to be?” she cried. “It’s like, they love their dad. They love him,” she told Vogue. “I just can’t bear it for them!”
As her marital homes are sold, she now plans to move to a farm in upstate New York with her children.
The interview also revealed that Chapman had bonded with Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s long-time aide whose husband Anthony Weiner is a convicted sex offender, and now in prison for sexting a 15-year-old girl.
“People don’t feel sorry for us, you don’t get that empathy. People think you’re beautiful, you’re thin, you’re rich,” Abedin told Vogue.
