DESIGNER: Christian Siriano

INSPIRATION: European (especially Parisian) women of the 1960s.

TOP LOOKS: A metallic brocade skirt paired with a sheer blouse with oversized ruffled shoulders; a sharply tailored zipper-front jacket with Siriano's signature "flounces;" a gorgeous asymmetrical tiered chiffon gown in gray.

WHO WAS THERE: Amber Rose, Mena Suvari, Veronica Webb, Leigh Lezark, Bravo's Andy Cohen

ACCESSORIES: Dramatic Christian Siriano for Payless platform pumps and boots with heels modeled after antique furniture from the 18th and 19th centuries; heels with ruffles; glitter-covered sunglasses by Rihanna's shades-maker, Kerin Rose.

WHAT WE THOUGHT:
While Siriano's collection wasn't as young and fun as last season's -- this time he opted for an almost all black palette with shots of navy and magenta and conservative pantsuits -- the looks clearly won over the hundreds of "Project Runway" fans in the audience, who erupted into applause when the dramatic finale gowns came down the runway. Siriano signature"flounces" (or ruffles) figured prominently in most of the collection, but it seems that he's grown up a bit, showing off his deft tailoring skills in everyday pieces such as sharp coats, pants, pencil skirts and blazers that a woman of any age would look amazing, and appropriate, in.
