Taylor Swift in Christian Siriano

Posted on September 04, 2011

The new ad campaign for Taylor Swift’s fragrance “Wonderstruck” features Taylor in a Christian Siriano gown and an inexplicable garden of chandeliers. Check it:

Not much to say on this one except that they couldn’t have found a more perfect dress for the ad, and congrats to Princess Puffysleeves for once again getting his shit out there in front of the public.

      She looks pretty damned gorge.  And the dress is so Barbara Cartland OTD that its kinda fabulous.

      • Susan Crawford

        She does look fab – and I’ve been trying to pin down a way to describe Siriano’s uber-ruffly, puffy, poufy, explosions for years, but you nailed it: Barbara Cartland! OMG, if that marron glacee of a diva had lived to see a Siriano gown, she would have been all over it like a Regency damsel on a bare-chested cavalier.

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          And you just made me smile so much!  “maron glace’ of a diva” indeed!  The world needs them bless their out of touch little hearts.

      Glad for CS.  And vexed at the state of the show.  I don’t think any of the current crop have the talent previous seasons had.  Dumb old Vincent would win if he were on now.

      • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

        Agreed 100%.  No one to cheer for or be amazed at, as we were with Mondo, Seth Aaron, etc., etc.  I haven’t seen one thing that could hold a candle to past seasons’ favorites.  I don’t even have a favorite yet.  Bland, bland, bland bunch of designers.

          i didnt understand this when i first saw them choose twenty & immediately eliminate four –& this for no discernible design reason. but now i am absolutely positive they chose them for their capacity for combativeness & potential for personality problems: who they seemed to be vs what they seemed to be able to do.

          stuck in a room w/ other people i think becky or bert or julie or oliver or maybe even cecilia would have done much better work than they did {even tho i didnt like cecilia’s portfolio at all, i think even she wouldve done better w/ less poison floating around}. it’s really hard to work amid hostilities, even worse amid rewarded hostilities. i’m pretty sure the ascendance of a few really noxious people is why we’re seeing the very very bad work we are seeing each week on PR. not to mention why we’re seeing all these stupid team challenges.

              Can you imagine naming a perfume with a word that ends in “uck?”  Is there a word for anything pretty, whimsical, glamorous or elegant that ends in “uck”?  Right now I can only think of one other word that ends that way.

              On another note, I am in awe of how many yards or tulle went into making those ruffles upon ruffles.

              I’m feeling over it also.  I don’t even care when I miss an episode, and that NEVER happened with this show on Bravo.  I hate these stupid producers with the fire of a thousand suns for running this show so far into the ground. 

          • Anonymous

            They abandoned all pretense of a show based on fashion and style and went instead for trashy interpersonal drama. Not one of the designers on that show right now can even hold a candle to some of those in the past. The show for me is dead and died when it went to Lifetime. Too bad. May it rest in peace.

      She looks like an alien Barbie to me. Not here..all the time. Nice ad though. Perfect dress for here (which in my book is not necessarily a compliment) – but I love that little elf CS

      Perfect for her and the ad. She looks gorgeous here, although I’ll be a broken record and say how sick I am of the dying-fish, open-mouthed pose. Can that please stop being a thing?

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        It’s unfortunate, but nonetheless true that the “mouth breather” pose is a stock go to look for fashion and advertizing since pretty much forever.  Look at a bunch of classic fashion ads and just count how many times Suzy Parker, Dovima, Twiggy, and other models used just that same expression.

        • Anonymous

          You’re right, but the pics of those other legendary models never bugged me. I just think the expression is more effective if it is employed less often. Or maybe there is a *way* to do it that doesn’t leave the model looking like an idiot, as those others have proven. Because let’s face it, Swift is looking pretty vacant.

          And now I can’t get the Sex Pistols out of my head.

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

            Looking at the image again there is a curious disconnect between us and her.  She appears to be looking at us, but isn’t quite doing so, so the needed connection that strikes the spark is missing. Perhaps that’s the source of the problem.  All those other models I mentioned engaged the camera fully.  When they looked at you, you by god KNEW that you were being looked at.

          • http://profiles.google.com/trashilove { edi } ilovetrash

            as above, but less so w/ taylor swift. they wouldnt dare do that w/ taylor swift, not w/ her fanbase. i think now it’s just so ubiquitous it’s become standard.

        • http://profiles.google.com/trashilove { edi } ilovetrash

          i think it’s the different ways it’s employed.
          in dovima days i’m pretty sure it was supposed to make her look thoughtful, like she was having an ah! moment in her thoughts– or just that she was daydreaming & not concentrating on having a serious face. something like that.
          now it’s supposed to make whoever it is look like she’s just {as my mother would say, excuse my french} pre-blow job. or if she’s supposed to be thinking, that’s where- & whatupon her thoughts are concentrated.

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

            Oh I have been going there about that sort of expression on models for a long time now.  Of course if cornered the ad biz people would say its not a demeaning sexualization of women to imply their readiness to be “orally focused” shall we say; but that its an empowering image of women taking control of their sexuality.  Yeah right, blah blah blah.  And all the sadder when this is foisted on us in the person of a barely adult girl.

          • JillK

            Oh dear, I feel so naive now… I was just about to post that I thought the open mouth was supposed to look like you caught the model right in the moment just before a kiss.  And I worry that I am going to sound like Tyra Banks here, but I think the reason those other models looked good doing it, and so many actresses don’t is that they don’t know that the photo should be taken while they’re actually taking a breath—you know, like you would just as someone leaned in to kiss you.  It’s been quite some time since I felt like my mind wasn’t filthy enough!!

      on the runway, the dress has kind of a coral reef look to it, and it’s interesting.  But I’m really not liking it in the ad.   I think Dumbstruck would be a more appropriate name because poor Taylor always looks kind of confused.

      Let’s take a step back and remember that Princess Puffysleeves himself was on Project Runway. Now, think about this season’s contestants. Can you see ANY of them creating anything this wonderful, or having a career the likes of Christian S?

      • BuffaloBarbara

        Well, none of them have a career on the same track as PPS.  Not because he’s necessarily the most talented of the winners, but because he seems to have an innate sense of how to operate the business of it as well as the art of it.  (Since they’re giving away money to start a line as the grand prize, wouldn’t it make sense for the show to have some business-centered challenges to master?)

        • Anonymous

          Good idea. I think of Trump-style reality shows where in group challenges they have to design, build and market their idea. Hell, even on RuPauls’ Drag Race the girls have to hit to streets to sell something at least once during the show (and not themselves).

          • BuffaloBarbara

            Maybe for one challenge, instead of just giving everyone the same money, they have to sell their idea to various “investors,” and the amount they get out of a general pot is proportional to the number of points awarded by said investors… (ETA, or, they could make it a two-challenge thing. The first challenge is “design your own outfit for meeting with important investors. The second is to wear said outfit to a meeting and get the actual money for the next challenge.)

            I just remember hearing an interview with PPS where he was talking about all of his corporate collaborations, and he said, very sensibly, something like, “Well, if I don’t make some money on shoes and ready-to-wear, I can’t afford to make couture collections and keep people working for me.”  So not what I expect out of artsy types that I almost fell out of my chair.

        • Anonymous

          In Season 1 they did have more business-oriented challenges–for example, in one challenge they had to design a look based on the emotion “envy” and market it to a bunch of fashion savvy shoppers in NYC.  In another, they had to get the attention of the Page Six editor by selling both their design and themselves.

      It does look like a doll dress/Disney princess dress, etc–but I like that about it.  It’s a pure fantasy gown pulled out of a cartoon and into the real world, which gives it a neat, magical feel, like it’s not quite of the world.

      And it certainly photographs well in the ad!

      The dress is definitely a confection, one made for adverts such at this. It’s cotton candy.

      that said:
      it’s a truly nice dress. i really like the color even if i’m not crazy about the early 60s glitter ribbon & the bodice, tho they’ll certainly do. the skirt is fabulous. she always is pretty. the chandeliers are photoshopped in, for what reason i cannot fathom.

      Nice to see a PR winner staying in the business. Though I wasn’t a fan of his work, he seems to hold the most promise of all the show’s alum. He could whip up a garment even with the time constraints without making the clothes look sloppy. The gown looks perfect for the ad campaign and the look Taylor was made up for which to me is a softer, sweet, girly aesthetic. The model though has the signature “fierce” Christian Siriano stamp.

        II agree. When Nicki Minaj wore it the dress had more of a modern edginess to it. Not so with TS. I suppose it has a lot to do with how they were individually styled, but most importantly the girl in the dress. I think I prefer it with the Nicki twist.

      Everything is beautiful, a little mouthbreathing notwithstanding. Her hair and makeup are gorgeous. I’m just happy when a young woman in the music business does not look like a cheap slut.

      Well there’s one perfume I won’t be buying. But don’t worry, PP, it has nothing to do with your lovely dress.

      It suits Taylor more than the model. I think that makes it an amazing ad.

        I agree – it’s a gorgeous gown, very “Taylor”, and it’s a beautiful ad.  Nicely done all around!

      Here’s a little interview with Christian in relation to this dress and the Biz. Funny thing, I can totally hear his voice in the answers. You’ve got to give it to the guy…he knows himself and he knows the game.

      Christian Siriano is Project Runway’s Kelly Clarkson

      the dress is gorgeous — and just perfect for this ad.  as annoyed as i would get with PPS for his snarky remarks about other contestants and his self-confidence/arrogance during his season, at least he has the talent to back it up – a fact with which i could never argue.  the current crop of designers can’t hold a candle to him or so many of the other previous contestants.  i agree with those who are speculating that they are casting more for personalities (particularly those who will create high drama & conflict) over actual design talent.  i think i am clinging to the past by continuing to watch this show…..

      More Barbie. Cheap looking netting, too.

      Yikes! The very definition of frou-frou!

      They cropped the dress just right for the ad, as it’s hideous on the runway, but just enough ruffles show in the photo to make it dreamy and ethereal. Plus they seem to have used a Photoshop ‘haze’ effect to make the ruffles less distinct, almost like foam.

      But really, who’s buying the gallons of these cheap, terrible perfumes? When every lame singer and actor has scented water on market shelves, who’s dumb enough to keep buying this junk?

      I think she’s very pretty and even somewhat uniquely. But — and I realize this is a cliche, but in this case it applies — I would really like to see a photo of her with her mouth shut.

      Will this fragrance be sold at Kohl’s? Because everytime I’m in there, her music is playing. It never ends.

      No one’s success makes me as happy as Christian Siriano’s does…his designs reminds me so much of Alexander McQueen and in a good way….
         and did I mention the dress is breathtakingly beautiful and as you guys mentioned perfect for the campaign….way to go Siriano
