Christian Siriano – the designer who dominated the Oscars 2018
The Oscar’s may be long gone, but what always remains trendy and enters the fashion history is the red carpet. Someone says that the red carpet is, in fact, a bigger event that the ceremony of awards itself. The moment when all famous persons arrive at the event is a worldwide phenomenon that is always live covered. Actors, musicians, producers, directors, celebrities are walking the red fashion runway looking at their best self. The Oscars ceremony is an event that many designers eagerly await so that they can present their creations of the bodies of some of the most beautiful and famous people in the show business industry. Some vintage, some custom made, every outfit speaks for itself and transfers the designer’s idea. No matter if that is an elegant gown or regular suit or tuxedo, some designs enter the fashion history as the most iconic ones. This recognition is a huge award for the designers themselves. One of the designers who dominated this year’s Oscar’s red carpet is Christian Siriano.
Although this Oscar’s subtly suggested the required attire considering the fact that #TimesUp movement was still going strong, the black outfit dress code was not strict. There were many sparkling colorful and bold attires, but there were those who were a bit toned down but extremely elegant. Those were the creations of the designer who celebrated the 10th anniversary of his brand. In the last few years, Siriano has opted for more diversity and inclusivity on the runway and on his creations too. Seventeen women decided to reward the designer by wearing his creations.
Whoopi Goldberg entered the red carpet wearing a floral gown with a belt. Underneath it, she wore combat boots. Laurie Metcalf and Kelly Ripa wore more elegant gowns, one in blush with sequins and the other black one with a pink and green back. Jane Mock looked divine in a white gown and Lindsay Vonn sported sexy look in a black sheer one with cut-outs. Keala Settle wore two gowns that night, one on the red carpet and one on the after party. A pretty outstanding design was the attire that Janelle Monae wore. It was a red suit with a huge skirt overlay. Abbie Cornish and Busy Phillips wore gowns with a ball skirt, one with flower motif and one with silver sequins. Alicia Silverstone decided to bring some color and appeared in a high neck gown in vibrant fuchsia. Patricia Clarkson also stunned in a midnight blue gown, covered in sequins. Those who decided to honor the movement and choose the black attire, the designer got them covered too. The celebrities on that list were Amy Adams, Jessica Williams, Rachel Bloom, Holland Taylor and Sarah Silverman.
Siriano decided to send the message through his dresses and it was a strong one – all women should be represented in the fashion history.
