Actress Danielle Brooks Is The Face of Christian Siriano’s New Lane Bryant Collection
It was announced last year that designer Christian Siriano was debuting a collection exclusively for plus-size women thru retailer Lane Bryant. Well the collection drops this month and the first pics, thanks to People Magazine, have me gagging all over it.
“It was fun to be surrounded by all these sexy men holding my dress and tying my shoes,” Brooks tells PeopleStyle with a laugh when they caught up with her and Siriano to discuss the collaboration. “Plus, the clothes helped me to embody the way in which we did the photo shoot—they make you feel sexy, like everyone has their eyes on you. It’s like these are the clothes you want to wear when you walk down the street and want to make heads turn.”
That was exactly Siriano’s goal when he went to create the collection. “I wanted it to be a lot of color,” he explains of the line, which features tops, dresses, skirts and even a full-length gown, all for sizes 14 to 28. “We took a lot of inspiration from 1950s ice cream parlors. I wanted there to be a lot of prints and stripes and textures, but still feel modern, with a little vintage feeling as well. I think the clothes are really great, wearable, fun and fresh, and that’s what we wanted to see.”
The Collection hits stores April 28th!!!
