Fine. Let’s just get this over with. Midway through the show, Tom said with no small amount of alarm to Lorenzo, “You realize we’re going to be in every single picture taken of this collection, right?” After panicking for a moment, Lorenzo replied,” Yeah, but no one’s going to notice us.” That’s not entirely true, since we just went out of the way to point out our presence in all the pics, but Lorenzo meant that the collection is so eye-catching that no one in their right mind would be distracted by our big, busy heads in the background.
It’s safe to say that Christian Siriano has grown up as a designer right in full view of everyone, maturing with each collection he puts out. We could say that this collection represents his French period, since it’s deliberately and successfully calling back to classic Dior and Saint Laurent. Dramatic, feminine, sophisticated and chic, this is Christian’s best collection yet.
