My favorite look was one of the most simple, a perfect white belted dress:
What I wouldn't give to wear this look. It's stunning in its simplicity. Of course the fierce shoe helps add a touch of edge- so Siriano, don't you think? Another one of my favorite neutral looks was this suit:
The asymmetrical ruffle detail on the jacket is one that popped up more than once in this runway show. I like that the ruffle is soft and fluid and cut in such a way that it's part of the front of the jacket, not just attached to it. Genius.
After a dozen luxe looks in white, brown and grey, Christian finally introduced a colorful print, but not just any print- an absolutely stunning turquoise and brown:
That Christian sure does know drama. This gown wasn't the first look utilizing this print, but it was my favorite. I'm a sucker for a gorgeous gown. The bright pop of color was followed by another group of neutrals, but in darker shades, beautiful metallics and rich prints. My favorite was this look:
The gown itself is absolutely stunning, but the leather jacket addition is so chic. I can just hear Rachel Zoe gushing over the brilliant combination of the two. I'm in love. Next up came a group in fiery reds, but still following the same esthetic of asymmetrical ruffles and impeccably draped dresses, gowns and separates. I loved these cocktail dresses:
I also loved this suit (there's that shoulder ruffle detail again!)
The finale of the show included two major show-stopping gowns in true Siriano-over-the-top fashion:
I am afraid that having seen Christian's collection first, it will be hard to find another collection that can live up to it. You can bet that if and when I do, I'll be blogging about it. In the meantime, if you want to check out the rest of Christian's collection, go here. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone!
