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.

2010 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards – Miranda Cosgrove In Christian Siriano

Falling Perfectly Award
Miranda Cosgrove opted for an autumn plum colour on the red carpet at the 2010 Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards yesterday.

She wore a Christian Siriano Fall 2010 dress, which is based on the runway version recently presented.

I think her asymmetrical tiered version was the perfect choice for her. The runway version may have been slightly overwhelming for her with that big floppy bow detail.

I can picture someone like Renee Zellweger wearing the runway version.

The teen actress paired her gorgeous dress with Christian Louboutin Numero Prive glitter slingbacks and Neil Lane jewels.

Earlier this week Shaun asked, “Why are celebrities and stylist rotating clothing so quickly as they’re already wearing Fall 2010?”

Although I often question why when we have so many Spring 2010 pieces we’d like to see on the red carpet, I do like to see the odd Fall piece, especially when it’s an exclusive piece like this.

I think it keeps the red carpet interesting, especially as we’re seeing so many repeat looks.

“ECCO Domani Fashion Party” – Emmy Rossum In Christian Siriano

It’s been a very long while since we saw Emmy Rossum on the red carpet, but she was out in New York last night attending the “ECCO Domani Fashion Party”.

Christian Siriano Spring 2010 collection was one of my favourites, and I really wish we would see more pieces on the red carpet.

Emmy wore a very lady-like ice blue sheath dress from Christian Siriano’s Spring 2010 collection which she zipped down just a little.

I love the colour against her milky complexion.

Her look was paired with platinum Christian Louboutin heels, and a beige python Ferragamo clutch.

The colour of the clutch doesn’t quite work for me, but that doesn’t stop this look from being a BDOTW contender.
