Christian Siriano Slams 'The Hills'

Christian Siriano Slams 'The Hills'

Project Runway champ Christian Siriano dissed The Hills stars Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port at the TAO Beach Season Two Grand Opening in Las Vegas on April 12. Apparently their fashion lines aren’t good enough!

Christian told Life & Style, “It’s really sad that if I didn’t win Project Runway, I probably wouldn’t have the sponsors I have now. I would have never been able to do what they have done because they all have disposable income, and yet their work still isn’t that great! I mean, it’s fun and flirty and young, but they’re not innovators. None of them will ever be an innovative designer. Buyers and editors are looking for longevity, and hopefully they will see that in me.”

OUCH!!!!!

In other Project Runway news, a spin-off that the Weinstein Company developed is called Models of the Runway, which, according to The Hollywood Reporter, will be a series looking at Project Runway from the models’ eyes. The spin-off, which will air on Lifetime, will follow the models who wear the designers’ clothes. Season six of Project Runway will also air on Lifetime.

FIERCE!!!!

It’s also been reported that Nina Garcia left (or got fired) as fashion director at Elle. But she may stay on the masthead as editor-at-large because of Project Runway, which has made Nina a household name and raised Elle‘s profile. Garcia will reportedly stay on for at least one more season.

YEAH!!!!!

He’s RIGHT! I am glad that I am not a struggling designer, because if I was I would be pissed! The only reason they have their own lines is because they are “celebrities” from a reality show. Not to mention that they all clearly come from money to begin with. There is something seriously wrong with our society for treating these girls like royalty.

YES HE IS RIGHT. YOU CALL LAUREN CONRAD A DESIGNER?! WTF. A SHAME.

# 3

i read that in Christian’s voice…

# 4

HE’S RIGHT

CUE THE IDIOTS WHO WILL REFUTE THIS

# 5

i agree with everyone posts above

# 6

Oh, and he was VERY classy in the way he said it AND realistic.

# 7

Yes, because it is always good in life to slam others to promote oneself, be credible and have some class.

# 8

As annoying as he is, he is correct. Someone needs to let the air out of shows like the Hills aka the Hillbilies.

Nins will bunce back as Elle realized they made a mistake. Everyone wants her now. she’s very high profile and knows fashion unlike so many .

It’s slander when it’s not true. So all critics do is “slam” people rather than speak the truth/ make an honest observation? Please review the English language. He is credible because he has worked with the likes of Alexander McQueen and won out in a crediable competition and I’m pretty sure he can actually sew HAUTE COUTURE unlike Ms. Thing 1 and Thing 2.

If you buy from a “celebrity” line, you should be embarrased

The only designer/actress that makes the cut is Georgina Chapman, the designer of Marchesa and married recently to Harvey Weinstein.

He shouldnt only slam the Hills Girls. Every other celebrity is getting their own clothing line and lets be honest.. they arent designing them. Its not about designs its about the name. The list is endless…….

At least Lauren went to fashion school. I don’t even think Mariah Carey or Jessica Simpson even finished high school.

HE IS SO SPOT ON.
I LOVE CHRISTIAN

and as much as i secretly enjoy watching the hills, lauren should stick to her job working backstage at shows because her designs can be found at forever 21 for a much lower price.

The difference is, those people aren’t pretending they are designing the clothes and have not quit their day jobs.

And the thing is, if Lauren and friends are, it’s just further proof to what he’s saying. I’m all done here. Everyone has said what needed to be said.

so true. I agree with everything that Christian said.

TRUE THAT CHRISTIAN.

I was very sad, that he even made the finals,the other two were very talented…it’s NOT innovative if your clothes look like costumes…I’ve seen your stuff thousands of times before and it’s ugly!!!!!!

BTW Lauren’s clothes aren’t cute either, but some of them are wearable…

ummm lauren is not studying fashion design at school – she’s studying merchandising/marketing which she switched to from product development…she is less than qualified to have her own line and christian is right, he has major talent and is not as popular as the dimwits on that stupid mtv show….lauren’s line is a joke…she needs at least 10 more years training before she should even consider having a line! she’s an insult to the fashion world. as for whitney’s line…….what-ever….she doesn’t deserve success based on the fact that she’s a horrible person!

GOOD FOR HIM!

He’s absolutely right.

I’ve been saying this about L.C. from day one. Just another reason why I love Christian. =)

I agree with Christian its seems as if everyone from the hills is suddently a designer Lauren may have went to school but Heidi give me a big break.

Finally someone got the balls to say the truth!
It’s just a little funny that it was him :D But he is right.

Now I wonder what he’s going to say about Victoria Beckham. After all, he design shoes for her *LOL*.

Funny thing is…most of you slam Lauren for only being famous cuz of a reality show….I wonder why hes a designer…oh wait thats right A REALITY SHOW….promote yourself for your clothing line not by dissing other people…this isn’t a political race.
