INSPIRATION: Inspired by the Mariinsky Theater in Russian, Siriano created a collection that his muse would wear to the Russian opera: full of elegance, opulence, and a cold, strong aesthetic.
FASHION – The Christian Siriano Fall/Winter 2013 collection incorporated ornate beading, thick faux furs, black velvet, brocade and lots of gold. From slouchy pants in leather and silk, to intricate shift dresses, short capes, fur trimmed coats, cigarette pants and a hint of structured peplum, Siriano dressed his muse from day to night. Trends included luxe jogging pants, brocade heels, and ethereal, sheer fabrics.
HAIR – The hair was parted in the center, and tightly fishbraided down each side before twisted into an updo at the nape of the neck. Antoinette Beenders, the Global Creative Director at Aveda, created the look to compliment the rich, luxiourious clothes.
MAKEUP – The makeup look at Christian Siriano was created by makeup artist Polly Osmond, and featured a dark smoky eye and contoured cheek, in order to keep with the cold, strong, Russian inspiration.
