God Help Us, These Christian Siriano Gowns Need a Red Carpet STAT
From the diverse casting (which included Candace Huffine and Coco Rocha) to the ultraglamorous and size-inclusive designs, Christian Siriano's Spring Summer 2020 runway show was nothing short of spectacular. Delivering on high-octane glamour for day two of New York Fashion Week, the pop-art-inspired collection (artist Ashley Longshore's whimsical and playful use of color and texture helped informed the fabrics) is destined for the red carpet, from the shimmering lurex gowns to an aqua suit dusted with rainbow crystals along the shoulders and a lineup of back gowns, party dresses, skirts, and suits all dripping with beaded fringe à la the flapper era.
As the show went on, each look grew more and more dramatic, with liquid yellow cocktail dresses, a voluminous marigold top-and-Bermuda-short set (with a full train!), rainbow taffeta ballgowns, and a magenta mini with the boldest shoulders you ever did see stepping onto the runway, leaving showgoers like myself in complete awe.
And while the aforementioned eveningwear proved as eye-catching as ever, impeccably cut cocktail dresses and sleek jumpsuits in black, white, and mint green had their moment in the spotlight, too, giving minimalists the showstopping after-hours looks they crave.
Ahead, witness every high-impact moment from the Christian Siriano runway for yourself, including a mix of bedazzled denim, lip-print lace, and suits in a surrealist eye motif you'll be dreaming about for days.
