Christian Siriano has had a crazy few days. First, he showed his spring 2017 collection last week at New York Fashion Week, where his runway presentation was applauded not only for the clothes and Jackie Kennedy-inspired nails and eye makeup, but also for casting five curvy models. Then, without taking any time to catch his breath, the designer dressed a total of eight attendees at the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, possibly breaking a record for the most number of women dressed in one single brand for an awards show. Lauren Adams, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Neve Campbell, Anna Chlumsky, Leslie Jones, Niecy Nash, and Maura Tierney all called on the Project Runway alum to make them look and, even more importantly, feel their best on the red carpet.
