Watch: Christian Siriano Throws NYFW Runway Show in His Backyard

Fashion designer Christian Siriano thinks celebrities will pull back on the red carpet glam at the virtual 2020 Emmys.

On Sept. 17, Christian premiered his spring/summer 2021 "Collection 37" at a social distanced runway show in his backyard, with stars like Emmy winner Billy Porter—whom Christian famously dressed in a tuxedo gown for the 2019 Oscars—in attendance. Christian's runway show isn't the only major event of the week: While the Emmys were originally slated to be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sept. 20, due to the spread of COVID-19, the event will be held virtually.

In an interview with E! News at the exclusive, mask mandatory event, Christian shared his predictions for Emmys style with host Zanna Roberts Rassi.

"I think it's a mix of classy, fabulous pajamas, or elevated suits that are comfortable. Maybe a few slippers," he explained of how the stars would turn out for the virtual award show. "I think actors and actresses right now, they want to be themselves, and a little more who they are. I think that's really nice to see."

Best Dressed Stars Ever at the Emmys

As for dressing his loyal client Billy for the ceremony, where he's nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, Christian shared, "I told Billy anything he wants on the runway today, he can take it!"

"It's always so hard when Fashion Week merges into awards season," he continued. "It can be tough, and I think this year is the toughest. It's the weirdest awards season ever in the history, but honestly 2020 bring it."

As for his current fashion endeavors, back in March, Christian's sewing team made masks for healthcare workers in New York to combat the PPE shortage during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. Christian is now making masks for another cause: He recently shared on Instagram that he is selling masks with the message "VOTE" on them in order to spread awareness about the importance of casting a ballot in the 2020 election.

"As a designer our clothes are our voice," Christian shared on the social media platform. "Yesterday we showed our collection with a message to VOTE VOTE VOTE!"

The masks are available for purchase at ChristianSiriano.com. Hear more from Christian and Zanna's convo in the video above!
