I was overwhelmed by the emotion of seeing our very own Christian Siriano win Project Runway. Was there any doubt in anyone’s mind? Congratulations Christian- you deserved it and your clothes looked STUNNING.
To celebrate, we’re reposting this “Best Of FOF” interview we did with Christian in January, when it wasn’t so clear the outcome of the contest.
Pop open the champagne!

Snip snip! The gayest television show on right now isn’t Ugly Betty, it’s Project Runway on Bravo! The Emmy nominated reality series showcases 12 or more fashion designers compete with each other to create the best clothes restricted by time, materials and a theme.
Giving the viewer a great perspective on the anxieties and challenges of being a working designer in any field, Project Runway is right now one of the hottest shows on television.
One of the most talked about contestants is Christian V Siriano, our featured guest on todays show!
Join Marc Felion and me, Fausto Fernós as we talk with Christian about the challenges of being in a reality-tv show competition, finding inspiration as a designer and if there was any sexual tension happening behind the scenes.
Just what is Tim Gunn REALLY like? Was Christian really fighting that much with Matty over the chocolate brown prom dress? How does he cope with the stress?
If you see Christian walking around the streets of New York City, don’t ask him who won. Because fashion week is in February, the producers of the show waited to decide who the winner is during that time despite the current series being filmed in July of 2007.
Do we think Christian made it to the top three? Will he win? We certainly hope so! Be sure to check out his personal website with tons of images of his fashion designs. Photos of Christian V Siriano by Brad Walsh.
Be sure to check out Project Runway on Bravo every Wednesday, 9pm Central, 6pm Pacific.
Out of the closet but always in fashion- Feast of Fools.
