It’s always refreshing to see people at Fashion Week that we’ve never encountered before they're like a celebrity sorbet, cleansing our starlet-weary palates and Christian Siriano very thoughtfully gift-wrapped some for us at his show on Saturday afternoon. Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland, wearing white, snagged most of the photographer attention she is as tiny and Kunis-esque as you’d imagine, and seemed sort of shocked by the jockeying mob of journalists but for our money, musician Corinne Bailey Rae looked the best. Her pink Siriano shoes were an unusual pairing with her orange cocktail dress, and the form-fitting above-the-knee frock Siriano provided for her was perfect: "You go into the [studio], there’s racks of things everywhere, it’s amazing," Bailey Rae said of picking it out. "You see all this gorgeous stuff hanging there, and if you see a color peeking out, or a hemline you like, you can try it on. It’s a bit overwhelming." Sounds like a dream shopping spree: all of the retail therapy with none of the credit card bills.
As exciting as the fresh faces were, a couple of other reporters were downtrodden at the prospect of seeing a very familiar one: Project Runway judge Heidi Klum, who posed for pictures with Nina Garcia while making weird hand gestures we didn’t understand it looked like someone pressed pause while the two of them were vogue-ing and stood alone in a black cocktail dress with a skirt that was sparkly up top and sheer on the bottom, making it sufficiently revealing for the woman we often think of as being the mayor of Leg City. "I can’t talk to Heidi anymore," one girl sniffed. "I’ve got nothing left to ask her." Her friend nodded vigorously and responded, "I know. If I get Heidi one more time, I mean We already know everything about her. We know when she ovulates." Well, she might, but we certainly don’t so if we bump into the apparently omnipresent Klum again, there's only one question to ask. Project Uterus, here we come.
