Priyanka Chopra Defends Choice to Wear Marchesa to Bridal Shower

Priyanka Chopra is standing by her decision to wear a Marchesa gown to her bridal shower over the weekend.

After the 36-year-old actress came under fire for wearing gown designed by Harvey Weinstein‘s ex wife Georgina Chapman, Priyanka told Women’s Wear Daily that she did it as a sign of “women supporting women.”

“Georgina’s a friend of mine, and she has been,” Priyanka shared. “And it’s not her fault. And I don’t think it’s right to take it out on a self-made woman what somebody in her life did.”

In October 2017, Georgina announced that she was leaving the disgraced movie producer following allegations of sexual misconduct.

“That’s the wrong attitude,” Priyanka continued. “I’ve known her for years, and that was a beautiful gown, and deserved to be worn by a bride-to-be. And it made me feel like a princess. It was the right choice.”

Back in May at the 2018 Met Gala, Scarlett Johansson was the first star to wear Marchesa after Weinstein‘s allegations were reported.

    Self made?

    Marchesa wasn’t self-made. It was financed by Weinstein and he forced the actresses in his movies to wear their gowns on Red Carpets for publicity. Georgina Chapman was a nobody until Weinstein made her a somebody and gave her money. He even tried to make her a”TV Star” by putting her on the show he produced (Project Runway.) The one thing she is NOT is self-made. She and that company are the products of Weinstein’s ego and abusiveness to women in the film and tv industry.

    You’re right and I refuse to believe she didn’t know about actresses being forced to wear her clothes or how her husband was. As long as it benefited her, she was all on board. She left to save herself.

    it just hows how stupid she is. or, perhaps she still needs some favors to get jobs and is showing her willingness to do anything

  • Wendy

    “self-made” = her (ex)husband financed her and made actresses wear her dresses. She knew who he was and what he did and took the most advantage of it out of all of them, she married the creep!
