Christian Siriano For Payless 2.0

So, is it fierce enough for you?  Christian Siriano of “Project Runway” fame is continuing his collaboration with Payless Shoes. If you remember, the budget shoe company sponsored Siriano’s spike studded footwear for his fashion show during New York Fashion Week back in February. His runway shoes have inspired his Fall 2009 collection for Payless which will be in stores this August and retail between $30 and $50. Egyptian hieroglyphics are a strong inspiration for the collection which will feature metallic fabrics, chain metal details, and teals and turquoise tones reminiscent of the Nile. Like the designer himself, the shoes sound a bit dramatic — but I think they are actually cute. This teal “Slither” bootie is one of several styles in the range and will retail for $49.99. What do you think? Ferosh or hot tranny mess? Keep reading »

Christian Siriano For Payless Looks Dangerously ‘Meh’

And I do mean dangerous! Those spikes could mess a bitch up! The “Project Runway” winner just showed at Fashion Week, but chances are, his upcoming line for Payless is the only Siriano-approved hot tranny fierceness the average woman can afford. Expected to be priced at an affordable $25-$45 per pair when they come out in fall, the line of budget footwear is conceptually aligned with Siriano’s fashion line, which used a lot of brown and turquoise. The shoes are certainly fashion forward for Payless, but they’re also a little underwhelming considering the source. Still, when these hits stores, I’m going to check them out in person. They’ve got to be better than the hideous styles designed by Patricia Field and Alice + Olivia. [NY Mag] Keep reading »

“Hot” Is No Longer Hot

Christian Siriano must be pissed. In Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, grammar/language columnist William Safire wrote about the adjective “hot” and how it is falling out of fashion as an indicator of cool. Apparently “Fierce is where it’s at.” Professor Connie Eble at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill took a survey of students and found that fierce no longer means “ferocious,” and has replaced “hot” as the word to use when describing something extremely attractive. Throughout his whole discussion, Safire neglected to share why “fierce” has risen in popularity — through Christian’s use of the word on Project Runway, of course! In our opinion, “fierce” won’t replace “hot” until people of both sexes and all sexual orientations use it. Have you ever heard a straight men say “fierce” in a non-joking manner?

Project Runway: Why Don’t We Hate Tim Gunn Yet?

Every reality show has a breakout star — Lo or Whitney on The Hills, Nicole Richie on The Simple Life, etc. — but usually that star has a fall from grace, once everyone has tired of his or her eccentricities. Just look at Christian Siriano — even we’re sick of saying “fierce” all the tme. But this is not the case with fellow Project Runway star Tim Gunn. I don’t think anyone expected Tim to become the show’s most beloved cast member, least of all Tim, but five seasons in, how is it that we still love him so freaking much?! Check out the clip from Wednesday’s episode above. We want to smack Blayne, but Tim is just adorable as always. He’s so stylish and handsome and cultured, yet he reminds me so much of my grandma when he says, “Holla atcha boy!” Keep reading »

Christian Siriano’s Bluefly Collection: Fierce In A Bad Way

Christian Siriano, last season’s “fierce” winner of Project Runway, is everywhere these days. He’s designed prom dresses for avatars and small collections for Puma, and he’s gearing up to show at New York Fashion week come September. Yesterday, his nine-piece collection for Bluefly, which was part of the PR prize package, went up on the site. For some reason, you can’t buy any of his clothes yet — either that, or they sold out in a day. (They all have a note that says “We’re sorry, this item is not available” next to them.) But as much as I love Christian and all of his hot tranny mess-iness, I don’t think I’d spend almost $400 on this jacket. More photos after the jump… [NY Times, Bluefly] Keep reading »

Poll: Was The Project Runway Finale In Or Out?

The Daily Hotness: Christian Siriano

Tonight is the finale of Project Runway Season Four, and while our heart belongs to contestant Chris March, we’re gonna go out on a limb and say that Christian Siriano will take home the prize as the winning designer. Christian may have worn out the term “fierce” over the course of the season, but he has seriously ruled the runway with his innovative designs. Sure, we’re not exactly his “type”, but we’d love to have him as our gay BFF, especially if he let us borrow his mega-watt flat iron. Check out his fiercest moments here. [Bravo TV]
