Christian Siriano designs three dresses for Met Gala


Westport resident and fashion designer Christian Siriano designed three dresses for Monday night’s Golden Age-themed Met Gala.

According to the fashion designer’s Instagram, he has designed dresses for singer Normani, designer and influencer Alexa Chung and tennis player Caroline Wozniacki.

This year’s theme was Gilded Glamor and White Tie dress code, meaning attendees were encouraged to approach late 19th century clothing through a modern lens.

As for Normani, the all-black look featured a full skirt with a drop waist, puff sleeves and a headpiece. “No corset needed for QUEEN #Normani tonight in custom Siriano silk velvet giving you 1875 #gildedglamour modernized at the #Metgala tonight,” Siriano posted.

Speaking with host La La Anthony, Normani said she loves collaborating with Siriano.


“I love this look,” Normani told Vogue livestream host Anthony, according to Yahoo. “[Siriano] was so patient with me. I know I can be a bit difficult, but we really collaborated and I feel so beautiful.

She also said working with Siriano was special because he was willing to break the rules with her, referring to her bare midriff, which is a bold take on the theme.

Siriano also designed a “silk elegance” gown for Chung’s 10th Met Gala.

He posted on Instagram, “My Goddess Alexa Chung Chic in silk elegance simplicity tonight at #metgala. It was such a dream to dress up Alexa for a time like this. Love you my friend . #alexachung”

During an interview for Vogue with Emma Chamberlain, Chung said she was lucky to have the dress because she didn’t know she would be attending the event until Friday.

“So it was a real tight-knit moment together…he nailed it,” she told Chamberlain.

Siriano designed a dress in two different shades of blue for “her tennis star” Wozniacki.

“My Tennis STAR @carowozniacki in Siriano tonight at #metgala! This woman is so fabulous and so talented! #carolinewozniacki #metgala @voguemagazine,” he posted.
