Homecourt Hand: Meet the Chandlers
Kimberly Chandler — recent New York Fashion Week front-row ubiquitor, mother of three, Hurricane Sandy relief effort organizer and owner of one of the chirpier personalities in the borough of Manhattan — learned something about her social resilience earlier this month when she attended The Costume Institute gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art by herself.“I was so impressed with myself after it was over,” she says a few weeks later. “I feel like if you can walk that red carpet by yourself…I was like, ‘Oh, I’m good for anything else. I’m golden.’ I had a bit of a meltdown and then I pulled myself together.”It’s a few weeks after she donned a Rodarte dress and strode that red carpet solo. Chandler is sitting in an oversize leather armchair in a faux living room at Canoe Studios on the west side of Manhattan on a humid, occasionally rainy May weekday. Today she wears a white collared Suno dress with black and blue geometric accents on its shoulder and skirt. Though her chair is several times too large, her posture is finishing-school straight. A few feet away, her husband, Tyson Chandler, the 7-foot, 1-inch starting center for the New York Knicks, has no trouble filling out his matching seat.  For More
