Nicki Minaj In Christian Siriano – Saturday Night Live

Nicki Minaj was one of the guest stars on ‘Saturday Night Live’ this weekend.

I found myself being totally captivated by her look as she performed her new single, “Right Thru Me.”

She sported a giant pink Big Daddy Kane slanted ‘fro and a delightfully frou frou Christian Siriano Spring 2011 gown.

I had always hoped to see this gown with a frothy tulle skirt worn on the red carpet despite it being a very difficult look to pull off.

I had given up hope, but Nicki wears it well despite her tiny frame.

Christian Siriano Spring 2011

Christian Siriano was inspired by African, Indian and Chinese influences for his Spring 2011 collection.

The silhouettes were varied. Ranging from wide-legged pants, safari shorts to structured cocktails dress to flowing evening gowns.

Siriano presented a lot of snakeskin prints in both red and blue and Safari white looks paired with tan jackets or belts.

Jackets, trenches, leather shorts and impeccably tailored pants were also presented.

The out of place – yet stunning – piece from this collection was a gunmetal grey metallic v-neck gown.

When it comes to dramatic gowns, Christian continues to excel.

The strapless tulle gown with the beaded empire waist and the red one shoulder draped finale gown received a rapturous round of applause.

I was particularly taken by the cognac strapless pleated gown which was paired with a leather belt and leather wing sleeve jacket with a zipper collar.

It not often you see a gown paired with a leather jacket, but it has a regal air to it so that means I can picture Cate Blanchett wearing this look.

Key accessories included towering Payless heels with chopstick inspired wooden heels and African-inspired gold necklaces.

Favourites: All the gowns

Front Row: Maggie Grace, Alan Cumming, Leigh Lezark, Katrina Bowden and JoJo.

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Maggie Grace, January Jones, Katrina Bowden, Christina Hendricks, Emmy Rossum, Adrienne Bailon, Leighton Meester and Miranda Cosgrove.

62nd Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards – Christina Hendricks In Christian Siriano

Christina Hendricks continues to make me proud by maximizing her curves at the 62nd Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

The gorgeous “Mad Men” actress opted for a belted black Christian Siriano gown.

As much as I wish it was in another colour, like green for example, I must admit that the black adds to the drama.

No one does drama quite like Siriano.

A black Judith Leiber clutch and bold red lips complete this look.

2010 Met Costume Institute Gala – Melania Trump In Christian Siriano & Ivanka Trump In Atelier Versace

Both Trump ladies looked stunning at the Costume Institute Gala last night.

Melania Trump looked amazing wearing a Christian Siriano custom-made gown.

The royal blue gown has a draped bodice and a skirt full with tucks and gathers creating a cascading wave.

The dress is very sculptural, but also very romantic.

Manolo Blahnik shoes, a Rodo clutch and Harry Winston jewels completed her look.

Ivanka Trump wore an Atelier Versace gown.

Her beaded lilac gown had a silk chiffon beaded petal train which she wore with silver Versace sandals.

She of course finished her look with her own Ivanka Trump jewels.
