Even before Sia showed up and surprised the audience with two live songs for the finale, Christian Siriano’s show was star-studded and action-packed.
Among the dignitaries attending the show were Janet Jackson, her second time attending Siriano’s show after her first appearance last fall; Kesha and Avril Lavigne, who talked the whole time; Quinta Bronson; Laverne Cox; Padma Lakshmi; Laura Linney; Rosie Perez; Sarah Hyland, Alicia Silverstone,
“I think we might consider him our friend,” Leni said, motioning to Perez next to her, of their relationship with the designer. “I think every woman here considers Christian her boyfriend. He’s so kind and incredibly talented, and I love that he sees beauty wherever he looks.
“I think when you meet him, it becomes an experience and then it becomes a relationship,” Perez added. “You become friends, you text, you call, you go out to dinner, you hang out, and it’s not normal. He doesn’t have a big ego.”
Siriano was celebrating his brand’s 15th anniversary that afternoon; When asked how they celebrated their favorite birthday, Leni replied, “She had a lot of birthdays.”
“The 11th was a good day,” she said, “and I would choose the 11th.” “There was chocolate cake and some wax lips.”
For Perez, Christmas is the best day of the year.
“Every birthday is my favorite holiday, my birthday,” she said.
While attending the show, Silverstone sat with her hand on Lenny’s knee, and they were both impressed. Hyland was wearing a particularly delicate dress, and she had both hands on her cheeks, and was on the verge of being shocked.
