Disney revealed on Tuesday that filmmakers enlisted former "Project Runway" winner and respected designer Christian Siriano to create the perfect animated ensemble for the latest Tinker Bell-powered Disney Fairies installment, "The Pirate Fairy." Specifically, Siriano is behind the outfits sported by the franchise's newest addition, Zarina (voiced by "Mad Men" star Christina Hendricks).
Siriano's own fashion star was born when he won season four of "Project Runway" in 2008, and he has since become a major player in the world of high fashion with his Christian Siriano label.

"I loved the challenge of this project," Siriano said in a statement. "I haven't designed for an animated character before, and I'm excited to take my skills into Zarina's world. She's a unique and new character and I wanted to help make her memorable and iconic. Disney characters are everlasting and I'm so happy as a young designer to help create a bit of Disney history."
