Christian Siriano, 21, is the youngest winner of Project Runway! But let’s be honest, it’s not really a major surprise, after all he is “fierce.” In fact, host Heidi Klum said he’s “uber-fierce!”
Christian beat out Jillian Lewis, 26, and Rami Kashou, 31, last night on Bravo’s hit series.
Christian chimed in with the press after his win,
“I’m, like, really excited but, let me tell you, I am taking, like, a vay-cay. I need a breaky-break. This won’t be the last of Christian Siriano. I mean, people need to see more of the fierceness.”
I LOVE this kid!!! He clearly deserved to win. I see him going places because Christian’s so lovable, flamboyant, and entertaining. I would love to buy many of his designs. This win was well deserved.
Siriano wowed the judges with his dramatic and elaborate collection, which featured skinny trousers, big belts and a two-tone feathered gown.
The Annapolis, Maryland, native, who won $100,000, a 2008 Saturn Astra and a spread in Elle magazine, as well as an opportunity to sell his collection on Bluefly.com.
But the real praise came from guest judge Victoria Beckham, who told Siriano his collection made her smile. “I would be honored to wear any piece of your clothing,” she said.
