Chantal Miller

I dont´t understand why Chantal Miller´s background is so intersting. She is not an official person. If she doesn´t want to speak about herself and to stay very private I think it is fine. Very fine.

Note: the MIller sister were {American royality }10 years ago. There is still a lot of interest you do not see report here any longer.

If a thread is started that would be great!

The Millers were never considered "American Royalty". That title is held pretty much for the members of the Kennedy family and that's it. Actually, most Americans don't even know who the Millers are, even now, after all their glossed-over high profile marriages and divorces. As someone once pointed out on another site, the Millers were really only "visitors" to the US, the daughters having been primarily brought up in Japan and then European boarding schools. Mr. Miller has been an avid anglophile for decades and I believe is now a British citizen. The mother, as we all know, is from South America. Part of the reasoning behind the girls move to England was that they weren't getting enough PR over here in the states, what with the Hilton Sisters pretty much coveting the "celebutante" roles for now. In Britain, mainly because of MC's connection by her marriage to the European royal houses, they are, in effect, treated more like "royalty." Though there's still not much PR for them unless MC is seen at some gala event. There's nothing new on them at all, and I'm sure it's not their idea. And I pretty much believe it's because, not only doesn't the average person know who they are but I don't think too many people care.

I totally agree and maybe this is why MC was ranting against the unexplainable (in her view) popularity of such a nincompoop as Miss Hilton?

One minor disagreemtnt, I'd say the getty family would count as 'american royalty', if indeed Americans would care about these things. Perhaps a slew of Americans on the East Coast would, but here on the west coast people could care less, unless you'd created a cool company, a la Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, etc. Perhaps MC qualifies somewhat here, as she's eating her own dog food and has started her own clothing company. Paris Hilton eat your heart out!

Kennedy, Getty, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Post. . .'American Royalty' is OLD money in my opinion. The Millers were celebrated for a very brief time, in a very small circle because they were young and blonde and rich and there were three of them and designers loved them. Thankfully they never fell to the lows of the Hilton girls.

I have a friend who was on the East Coast at the time of the popularity of the sisters. His mother is fabulously wealthy (new money) and he was friends with some of the Gettys but has no idea who the Miller sisters or even Robert Miller are. And, if they had not appeared regularly in fashion mags. would WE know who they are?

Anyways, I like what I know of MC and would love to meet her in her shop someday. :)

You are so right Aphrodite. I'm on the East Coast outside of the mentions in W mag, no one knew who these Millers were. Even after Pia married into the Getty family, it was like, "Who?" It really wasn't until MC became engaged to Pavlos (Europen royalty, oh my) that anyone sat up and took notice. And then it was really all about the great "matches" the Miller sisters made and the extravaganza weddings of MC and Alex. Now, they've pretty much faded out. Though you have to give MC credit for her business ventures. And, more importantly I believe, she seems like a good mother, albeit high end so there probably are nannies and so forth, but she does seem like she enjoys her children and is bringing them up relatively normal.

The Miller sisters weren't so much American Royalty as Park Avenue Princesses - although, to be fair, the Miller's co-op was on Madison Avenue.

Is Alex still in New York? It always appears she and MC were always together at events. I have not seen photos of Alex recently.

She may not be an "official" person, but her daughters have (some say with the blessing of their parents) strived very hard to be in the spotlight. Interviews. Photospreads. Showing up at the "right" events with the "right" people. And, of course, their "spectacular" marriages ~ two of which have already ended in divorce. If Mr. & Mrs. Miller are going to encourage their daughters to seek the spotlight, then they need to be aware that their own lives will be under scrutiny. Besides, the high-end, somewhat shallow world these people live in are all about gossip and blood-lines. The fact that Mrs. Miller DOESN'T speak openly about her background/family/past only only opens the door to unlimited speculation.

According to something I read a year ago, she's in LA so the kids can be closer to their dad.

She looks really, really bad. She was once the prettiest of the sisters, and since her marriage, she's really gone downhill.

I always thought Pia was the most pretty of the Miller sisters, though she's aged very badly and looks considerably older than she is. They all look older than they are, actually, even MC who still looks quite good.

Thanks Aphrodite, I'll try it again.

I've also noticed that Pia looks considerably older than she is, but,she has also been under a considerable amount a stress with her philandering husband and divorce procedings.

I know Alex got divorced, and I read rumors of Pia seperating from her husband and then reconciling, but I think they're getting divorced as well. The last I heard both have moved to London to be near MC. I always got the impression they were riding her coattails because she made the highest-profile marriage. But we don't seem to hear that much about them in the press anymore since they moved. Socialites are a big deal in the US, especially New York City.

Pia's dovirce is finalized. MC moved into a new house earlier this year and there's been no word of what Alexandra is up to;there just isn't information about them,which is disappointing.Just because they are older than some of these new girls doesn't make them less interesting.

I heard Alex and Alex are not divorced but just seperated but are on friendly terms and still live close by each other for their kids. Boy-Alex was supposedly dating a girl who was the younger brunette version of Girl-Alex. But this was a while back, so not sure what she's up to now.

According to MC's Tatler article, both of her sisters are divorced. She was quoted as saying as much.
