From WWD - February 10, 2018

Christian Siriano was in good company Saturday afternoon as he celebrated the 10th anniversary of his label with family and friends, who filled the opulently appointed Freemasons Grand Lodge in New York for the unveiling of his fall 2018 collection.

In this industry, 10 years goes by quickly, said Coco Rocha. While everyone is getting rid of shows, the fact that he can produce a show like this is amazing. The model, a close friend of Sirianos and his husband musician Brad Walsh, was joined at the show by her two-year-old daughter Ioni Conran, who last month joined her mother on the catwalk of Jean Paul Gaultiers spring 2018 couture show in Paris. She loved it, added Rocha. Even right now shes asking if shes on the runway. I said No, not this time babe. She loves the runway and performing, though.

While Sirianos brand has evolved over the past decade, so have the style choices of some of his celebrity fans. Rocha admitted, Back then I literally didnt care and Id wear the same thing everyday, but I still dont have style. This opinion prompted a stern objection from actress Larsen Thompson, who revealed shes recently learned to ignore critics and embrace a bold approach to dressing. I dont care what people think, really. Im not scared to wear socks and sandals on the red carpet.

Laverne Cox, wearing a canary yellow Siriano frock, watched as Cardi B and her entourage made a grand entrance just ahead of the show, which featured 72 looks in total. The rappers appearance caused a stir as she willingly posed for selfies with fans, but once again kept mum with press, as was the case when she sat front row Thursday at Jeremy Scotts show. Meg Ryan, several seats down from Cardi, was also a silent Siriano supporter.

I have a stylist now and 10 years ago I did not have a stylist, admitted Cox, who enlists the talent of Christina Pacelli for her public looks. I also have amazing hair and makeup people now, whereas 10 years ago I did everything myself.

This was the first opportunity for the actress to attend New York Fashion Week in three yearsif you can believe itsince a busy work schedule has continually kept her away from the festivities. Beginning at the end of February, Cox will appear as a judge on a new competition show called Glam Masters, which showcases beauty bloggers and makeup artists. Whether youre into makeup or not, I think youll appreciate the artistry, she added.

Molly Shannon has seen her own style evolve considerably since gaining public exposure on Saturday Night Live beginning in the mid-Nineties. Back then I wore red tights with these cheap dresses from I dont even know where, said the Divorce actress. Suddenly I could afford nicer haircuts and I started going to Oscar Blandi. Then my style evolved. [SNL costume designers] Tom Broecker and Dale Richards would tease me, but I learned so much from them about what looks good on my body. Im much more into fashion than I used to be.
