Sarah Moffat has been blogging about fashion and beauty for years, and she had surrounded herself with a supportive, body-positive community online. But when she went to plan her wedding this summer, she came face to face with the negative, fat-shaming attitude she’d worked so hard to eliminate from her life since she was a teenager.
Designer Christian Siriano has a new book out called "Dresses to Dream About," which gives an intimate look into his design process and how he begins each dress with a simple sketch.
Slogan T-shirts are a powerful political tool. They instantly say something that the wearer wants to convey, and in the Instagram-obsessed world, they provide messages that are easily shared, reposted, understood.
Just a few days after she went HAM while cheering on Christian Siriano at his New York Fashion Week runway show, Leslie Jones has stepped out on the Emmy red carpet in one of his formalwear gowns.
Leslie Jones said she treated the Christian Siriano fashion show like a baseball game because she was so excited about the clothes and plus-size models.
Calling all newly minted fiancées, soon-to-be brides, and just sheer wedding eye-candy fans — the Bridal Fashion Week Spring 2018 collections are finally here. One example is the trendy off-the-shoulder top look reworked as a wedding dress. At Lela Rose, a model wore a long, crisp white gown featuring an off-the-shoulder panel made of tiny, perfect, delicate white pearls. White gowns were still the majority, but black wedding dresses seem to be back.
Christian Siriano is known for celebrating body diversity, and that he did at his Fall 2017 runway show.

The third day of fashion week hit high notes with the likes of Alexander Wang, Christian Siriano and Rebecca Minkoff. Dora Fung, our Style Market Director, and Dana Oliver, our Beauty Director, have teamed up to share the best looks of each day. Here are their picks from Day 3.
Her fitted dress with an A-line skirt and puff sleeves was the quintessential casual look of the decade, alongside the little pillboxes hats that she was prone to wearing when not adorned with a big bow. The polka dots that sometimes covered her dresses have been in and out of fashion throughout the centuries, but it wouldn’t be out of line to say that Minnie had a hand in bringing them back. When it comes to patterns, polka dots are the most whimsical and carefree, and they certainly have a child-like characteristic about them — it’s no surprise that clowns love them! The design was initially popular in the late 1800′s, and surely it was Minnie’s stylish ways and playful allure that made it the pattern of the 1950’s. The look was the perfect compliment to the “peachy keen, jelly bean” attitude of the wholesome, all-American family.
Finding an apartment in New York City is no easy feat, and it looks like Christian Siriano found himself a keeper. The designer takes the cameras inside his home, which he shares with his boyfriend, giving the world an inside look at his inner sanctuary – which, we would like to point out has not one but two skylights, a rare find in this city.
Yet Christian Siriano has learned to manage his own lofty expectations. If they don’t wear it, you move on.” Siriano’s eased nerves could also have something to do with the fact that he is closer to being guaranteed a spot on every major red carpet than pretty much any other designer featured on Vogue Runway’s dropdown menu. For this year’s Emmys, he dressed Orange Is the New Black Stars Laura Prepon and Danielle Brooks in custom gowns. Solange Knowles chose a mock-neck cape top and matching pant for the 2015 Oscars.
