Christian Siriano is my hero. He is just as hilarious in person as he was on Project Runway. Not only are his designs incredible but he also has a huge celebrity following that includes everyone from Victoria Beckham to Whoppi Goldberg, who he dressing at the Tony awards. I met up with him at a Declare Yourself event and asked him how he would dress the political candidates and first ladies. His answers are legend:
"I’ll tell you that Hillary needs a new wardrobe. I just think that Hillary should be a little more fashion forward and be more casual. A boring business suit every day? I know it’s great for Washington but appeal to like the fabulous people like me! Like wear some pumps from Louboutin; wear a fabulous jacket and a feathered something."
"I want him to be in like a motorcycle bomber jacket and like patent leather suit and like crazy really cool jeans with zippers on them. Something crazy."
"That’s a serious situation. Maybe I think his suit just needs to go from like boring businessy suit to like a cool suit like Burberry. More tailored. It’s a little frumpy frump."
"I think she knew she was going to be really in the spotlight so she went really crazy and turned tranny and I think she needs to tone it down."
"Oh my god but I think it’s kind of fabulous (looking like Jackie O). She’s being very Washington DC and I’m from Maryland so I kind of love that. She just needs a pair of boat shoes."
