There is no doubt that Georgina Chapman here is very pretty, and very accomplished, and very organized — seeing as we saw her at the Marchesa show in September three weeks after having a baby — and when she was on Project Runway this season, she came across as a thoughtful and smart judge. It’s always interesting to me how people come across as judges. Some — like January Jones – do themselves no favors, and don’t seem to have anything to add to the conversation. But then you take someone like Rachel Roy, about whom I was previously neutral, and she does herself nothing BUT favors because she’s clearly so very smart and thoughtful and is obviously coming from a place of expertise.
