Giuliana Rancic In Christian Siriano – 2011 Oscars

Giuliana Rancic is hosting E’s Live from the Red Carpet at the 2011 Oscars tonight wearing a Christian Siriano Spring 2011 gown.

The strapless aqua printed gown is gorgeous. I have longed to see it worn on the red carpet.

This is a lot of dress for Giuliana, as she usually wears more fitted or shorter styles as not to compete with the stars she’s interviewing on the red carpet.

It’s the Oscars, why not go big and long?

I’m not usually a fan of what she wears as she often loves to shop at Tackyville, USA but I like this look a lot.

Chopard jewels completed her look.

Christian Siriano Fall 2011

Christian Siriano took a walk on the dark side for his Fall 2011 collection.

The mostly black collection was anything but boring. The textures were luxe and rich. The shapes and structures were fascinating. The details were outstanding and blazers were tailored to perfection.

The dark collection did have some other beautiful colours add like rose pink and forest green.

Amongst the jackets, skirts and pants were the designers’ signature beautiful dresses and fantasy gowns.

The breath-taking heels were created as part of the designers ongoing collaboration with Payless.

A model took a tumble on the runway, whilst another walked the finale with only one shoe on which you can see in the video below.

Both Gabrielle Union and Mena Suvari had no such problems walking in their heels as they took their front row seats.

Front Row: Alexa Chung (in Deyrolle pour Opening Ceremony dress with Debenhams shoes), Gabrielle Union and Mena Suvari

Favourites: Black turtle neck paired with a black satin tulip skirt and the black feathered top paired with black satin pants

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Mena Suvari, Camilla Belle, Rosario Dawson, Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, January Jones, Katrina Bowden, Emmy Rossum and Leighton Meester

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.

Rosario Dawson In Christian Siriano – 2010 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards

Rosario Dawson was radiant at the 2010 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards last night in LA.

She’s the first celeb to wear a look from Christian Siriano’s Spring 2011 collection.

Her strapless white silk chiffon gathered dress is exquisite.

Christian continues to prove what a truly talented designer he is.

Rosario added Brian Atwood nude heels and a Jimmy Choo ‘Lisa’ clutch.

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.
