Oh you simply must remember Christian Siriano, that pint-sized, kookily coiffed character with huge amounts of attitude and talent who is, arguably Project Runway’s most colorful winner to date. He won season four, beating out, among others, Long Island’s Jillian Lewis and making words such as “fierce” and “tranny,” well, household.
Tonight, catch up with him in an hour-long special airing on Bravo at 10 PM called “Christian Siriano: Having A Moment.” You may recall that Project Runway no longer airs on the network, which lost it in a, (sorry), fierce legal battle, to Lifetime.
But hey, that didn’t stop Siriano from returning to the place that helped make him famous, though he has certainly evolved. Since the win, he has shown three collections at New York Fashion Week (garnering very decent reviews), sells to major department stores, has a deal with Payless shoes and dresses some celeb types including Tori Spelling, Estelle and Mena Suvari.
And, he’s replaced the old lingo with some new, more fashion designer-y – stuff like, “J’adore, genius,” and yes, “having a moment.” New words but still hilarious. Tune in tonight to watch Siriano do his thing. For a sneak peek go to http://www.bravotv.com/videos/moved-on-from-fierce.
