Positive Vibes at Christian Siriano’s Spring 2018 Collection

Sunlight cascaded into the panel glass windows of Pier 59 Studios Saturday afternoon for Christian Siriano’s Spring 2018 offering. The designer’s husband, singer Brad Walsh, observed how the “white box” setting along the Hudson River would offer a suitable backdrop to Siriano’s colorful collection.
The attendees of the show were equally vibrant. Comedian Leslie Jones, in a striking fuchsia cape by Siriano was more than happy to support the 31-year-old. “I love that he loves women — all women — all shapes and sizes.”
This inclusive philosophy was evidenced in his selection of runways models, which ranged from svelte Coco Rocha to curvaceous Candice Huffine — both receiving supportive applause as they strutted down the runway.
“Everybody should be snapping — work it,” exclaimed an ebullient Jones as the models paraded out before the rapt crowd.
Actress Patricia Clarkson echoed Jones’ sentiments. “I love [Christian’s] views of women,” she remarked from the front row. “He’s inclusive. He views women as individuals. He sees all women. I think he should run for President.”
The 57-year-old, who just wrapped the HBO series “Sharp Objects,” directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, is hopeful for his “Big Little Lies” Emmy nominations. “I’m rooting for him. He’s divine and he’s hot.”
