We’re big fans of Christian Siriano here at HelloGiggles. And now we love him even more, because Christian Siriano just filled his runway with curvy models.

Of course, he’s one of our all-time favorite Project Runway contestants. We die every time we see one of his gorgeous creations on the red carpet. And we’ll never forget that time Leslie Jones couldn’t find a designer to make her a Ghostbusters premiere dress and Siriano jumped at the chance to dress one of the funniest ladies on Planet Earth.

Siriano has a rep for being able to make women of all shapes and sizes look like superstars. In 2016, he collaborated with Lane Bryant on a plus-size collection. And his runway collection for this season’s New York Fashion Week just further confirms that Christian Siriano makes everyone look like a superstar.

Christian Siriano hosted his runway show at the Plaza Hotel this Saturday, utilizing a plethora of awesomely curvy models. And holy moly did his show deliver.

We can’t decide what we like more, the luxe turtleneck/high-waisted skirt combo, the bug brooch, or the bold as all get out petal pink/orange-red color combo. We want to try the latter for Valentine’s Day, we’ll probably mess it up, but whatever, Siriano is inspiring us to take risks!

Speaking of white-hot Valentine’s Day looks, we are dying over this suit combo with a black bustier. It’s super ’80s, but the ’80s are totally back, right? (And the ’90s, and the early ’00s, and the mid-’00s…)

Ugh, we love this metallic take on an LBD with the fancy neckline, and we love one of our most favorite models Candice Huffine in it!

This structured silk slip is bringing us Old Hollywood realness, and we are HERE for it.

Making curvy girls look, to quote Siriano, FIERCE, isn’t the only way the designer was progressive at NYFW this year. His husband Brad Walsh designed this awesome “People are People” shirt and 100% of the proceeds are going to the ACLU. This is what the term “relationship goals” was made for.

Keep fighting the good fight, Siriano, and keep making girls look fierce as heck in the process!
