It seemed particularly appropriate that as New York City was blanketed by snow (and shoe-ruining slush), the makeup notes for Christian Siriano’s Fall 2013 show cited “the coldness of Russia” as inspiration.
Diane Kruger and a handful of entertainment folk attended the screening of Farewell, My Queen last night in New York. Naturally, Kruger (and dreamy Joshua Jackson) stole the show, and we have pics!
The holiday season is officially upon us, and Barneys knows just where you want to shop: Gaga’s Workshop.
We don’t know if it was the frozen treats or the affect of being in the presence of the Kaiser, but the spirits at last night’s Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Karl Lagerfeld‘s Magnum ice cream shorts were high. Seriously, everyone we talked to was such a delight!
This week Scott Schuman and Britney Spears got in trouble, Dolce & Gabbana got out of trouble, and Jessica Simpson just got paid. Christian Siriano and Rachel Zoe made headlines, too. Also, Legos!
Yesterday we wrote a post saying that we didn’t quite understand why designer Christian Siriano would go to the trouble of showing his collection for a second time during Nashville Fashion Week. The response to this post is bigger than anything we’ve seen since John Galliano said “I love Hitler.” Siriano himself has even weighed in at this point, explaining his decision to haul his gowns 902 miles south from the Big Apple to Music City.
Nashville Fashion Week is a thing that exists, and Christian Siriano is its headliner. (Betsey Johnson is showing, too.) While hundreds of cities around the world hold fashion weeks — seriously, from Atlanta to Zagreb and beyond — it seems strange that designers who show in one of the Big Four (New York, London, Milan, and Paris) would choose to put on an additional show in a seemingly random location.
The folks over at HuffPost Style sat down with Christian Siriano recently, and he dished on Project Runway, gay rights and… what he would be like as a woman. We loved his last collection, and it’s always fun to hear what the irreverent designer has to say.
In case you missed it, Halloween fell on a Sunday this year, which means that everyone and their mother spent Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night in costume. We saw Brad Goreski as Tavi and Anna Dello Russo, Lady Gaga as Cruella deVil, and Anna Dello Russo as Lady Gaga, but the one party everyone’s been waiting for happened last night at Lavo in New York City.
When you think of Christian Siriano, the words “hot tranny mess” come to mind. To many, the irreverent designer may be better known for his outrageous personality than for his clothing. We think that’s about to change.
Christina Hendricks used to lament that only actresses who could fit into sample sizes, like Lea Michele, were the only ones who could get designers to loan them dresses. But now that she’s a game-changing star, we don’t think getting a dress should really be all that much trouble for Hendricks.
The Annual Creative Arts Emmys is not generally thought of as the height of red carpet season. But last night, Christina Hendricks upped the for the event, and we wouldn’t be surprised if the attendees of next year’s event look a little more refined than they did this year.
How long can you look at one website before you get bored? Right now, I’m going on an hour at Bluefly.com after watching four short video clips and scrolling through a number of photos on their new Closet Confessions feature.
Crain’s magazine’s annual 40 under 40 feature is a veritable list of who’s who in New York. The list includes honorees from industries as varied as finance, hospitality, politics, and new media, but it doesn’t often highlight the up and comers in the fashion industry — which is why it was a pleasant surprise to see Project Runway alum Christian Siriano featured right up top.
