No one embraces the fashion for everyone mantra more than Christian Siriano. He made headlines after actress Leslie Jones revealed he was one of the only designers who would dress her for the red carpet — proving that the best-dressed list is not one size fits all.
"Leslie and I met when I was dressing her for the Ghostbusters premiere," he told LIfe & Style exclusively. "I love her she is full of life such a beautiful person inside and out! We have so much fun in our fittings! It's wild and playful but still, we get the job done and always have great carpet moments together."
For Leslie, who can be seen front row at his fashion shows, the feeling is mutual. "He saved my life,” she said during NYFW. "He loves color like I love color."
This body positive outlook continues in Christian's latest project, the imPRESS Press-On Manicure Siriano Collection, available for a limited time only (and the perfect stocking stuffer). Inspired by some of his favorite collections and garments, the nail designs also include a set that reads, "People are People," which is from his husband Brad Walsh's t-shirt line.

"Fashion should be fun and I want every girl to feel confident about her style, no matter her shape, size or ethnicity and she can do just that with this collection,” Christian said. Along with Leslie, his celebrity clients also include his longtime muse Coco Rocha, Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks, and more recently The Crown star Claire Foy on the cover of British Vogue.
So who does the former Project Runway winner hope to dress next? "I never try to go after one celeb," he explained. "I just hope it happens naturally. Some of the women I dreamed of dressing as a young kid has happened so that to me is all I could ask for."
