From stunning panther-print velvet tunics, to lavish jacquard jumpsuits, & African ball gowns, Christian Siriano united the exotic palette of a jungle’s vibrant foliage with the posh vibe of a Manhattan gala, for what culminated as the ultimate uptown safari.
The show began with tiger, zebra, & leopard printed embellishing expertly tailored coats, dresses, & pants. This steady march of jungle was finished with four head-turning, off-the-shoulder floral ball gowns that left friends & fans gasping for air, while designers & editors alike analyzed each piece to determine the source of his expertly selected materials. Together, the pony hair pencil skirt and blouses, the ostrich feathered shift dresses & gowns, feather applique’s, & smooth taffeta gowns, moved with grace & function across the runway.
Siriano’s celebrity guests Kelly Osbourne, Coco Rocha, Zendaya, Juliette Lewis, & KESHA were even spotted smiling in agreement with his pieces, as if they were daydreaming about which poshevents to wear them to, & who else they could be worn by.
Reminded Us Of: The lavish patterns & structure of Siriano’s show-stopping ball gowns forced us to recall Scarlett O’Hara similarly scene-stealing wardrobe, rich colors, materials, & panache. Notwithstanding, we also were stricken with a sudden urge to book a first-class flight to Cape Town, Africa!
