Yesterday I attended the Christian Siriano show, where there were (naturally) not only a celebrities but quite a few Project Runway alumns! Here I am with the handsome Jack Mackenroth, who posed for dozens of photos because we didn't know whether or not the camera was working! (If I had been handling it, it would have WORKED.)
And here is your faithful correspondent backstage at the Siriano show:
My beautiful oyster felt hat, trimmed with black ribbon, was custom made for me by Ellen Christine of Ellen Christine Millinery!
And my black two-piece suit with attached collar and cuffs is from Re/Dress New York, a phenomenal plus size vintage and contemporary boutique in Brooklyn! (There is an earlier entry in this blog-thing about their never-to-be-forgotten opening party.)
Their racks are packed full of a huge variety of clothes, from vintage eveningwear to contemporary work dresses, lingerie, all in sizes up to 4X and beyond! I cannot recommend this shop highly enough. During my day there, I felt like a child in a candy store. My driver took me there, but it's easy enough to get to on the (ugh) subway, so I'm told.
During Fashion Week, they are having their own alternative event:
