Deemed "his generation's Marc Jacobs" by style mentor Tim Gunn after becoming Project Runway's 22-year-old season four winner, Christian Siriano paraded out of fashion's confines in 2008 to become a veritable pop culture darling.
Styled here as an homage to Elvis Presley in Jailhouse Rock -- Number 47 said to number three, you're the cutest jailbird I ever did see -- Siriano has the distinction of being one guest at last year's Out 100 soiree who graduated from attendee to honoree. (Candis Cayne is another.)
A few choice words from when we last spoke:
> ON BEING REASSURED HIS OUT 100 PORTRAIT LOOKS GOOD: "I hope so cause I didn’t like my hair."
> ON CLASSIC CATCHPHRASES: "People say lines from their favorite movies all the time."
> ON WALKING -- OR DRESSING DIVAS FOR -- THE RED CARPET: "I meet these amazing tall bachelors and then it's easier for me to connect with them."
