Georgina Chapman, Weinstein’s ex, sports black in public

Georgina Chapman was seen for the first time since separating from her husband Harvey Weinstein in the wake of the seemingly countless sexual misconduct allegations against the producer.

People reports that the British fashion designer stepped out in England, wearing all black — a long coat, ankle length pants and loose sweater — and no jewelry. In particular, she wasn’t wearing her wedding ring, which she apparently took off after separating from Weinstein around the time of the first wave of accusations.

Sources previously told People that Chapman is laying low as the scandal continues, staying focused on her children and her business, with no public appearances.

However, Us reported that she is returning to another season on “Project Runway All Stars,” along with host-judge Alyssa Milano and fellow designer-judge Isaac Mizrahi.

Meanwhile, Hadley Freeman, columnist of the U.K. Guardian, made an interesting point about whether people should be supporting Chapman’s line, Marchesa.

She says perhaps they shouldn’t because it’s deeply associated with Weinstein, and got a huge boost from high-profile public appearances by stars such as Renée Zellweger, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Mischa Barton and Blake Lively who were in his movies, and ordered to wear the brand to premieres.

NOW IT’S SIZEMORE

Because we can’t go day without a report of alleged sexual misconduct, here’s the latest: Actor Tom Sizemore was banished from a film set in 2003 after being accused of fondling an 11-year-old girl.

The “Saving Private Ryan” actor was forced to leave a Utah set after the girl told her parents that Sizemore touched her genitals, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Months after the incident, the actor returned to a set in Malibu to finish shooting the film, “Born Killers” (shot as “Piggy Banks”). By that time the parents had declined to press charges.

The only comment from the actress, now 26, was that she has retained a lawyer.

Sizemore’s agent Stephen Rice said, “Our position is ‘no comment.’”

QUICK TAKES

Rumors that “Wonder Woman” actress Gal Gadot would not return to the franchise unless accused sexual harasser Brett Ratner’s name was removed from the project (his company helped finance the first film) are apparently untrue; on Monday, Deadline reported that Gadot is coming back and Patty Jenkins is directing. … Taylor Swift’s “Reputation” tour will come to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara on May 12.
