What PJ said about Christian Siriano:
Before the show started, I ran around trying to take photos of celebrities on my crackberry and uploaded them to @BettyBuzz. I was able to get a photo of Leigh Lazark and JoJo, tried to get a few more and got stepped on! I think I make a bad paparazzi… or is it paparazzo?
The worst thing about the Christian Siriano show was trying to decide what to look at: the shoes or the clothes. Christian designs sexy shoes for Payless, so not only is he showing off next season’s dresses and separates, he’s also showing off shoes, bags and accessories.
Oh the shoes! Oh the clothes! Christian’s palette ranged from pure white to caramel with bursts of red and pink. I loved his shorts — they had inverted pleats and the leg was roomy. Waists on dresses either had crystal/stone accents or cute fabric ones.
I fell in love with a caramel colored sheath that was either faux leather or leather… simply cut with a u-back. Stunning. He mixed African, Chinese and Indian influences for spring and came up with soft abstract prints in turquoise and caramel grayish brown, pink, red and white. There were sexy day looks and his ball gowns were full of froth, organza and tiers. One evening look paired a cropped caramel swing jacket with a paler shade silk gown.
