New York Fashion Week: Lil Kim Attends Christian Siriano’s Spring RTW 2022
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES — During New York Fashion Week, American fashion designer Christian Siriano went all in with celebratory looks for spring 2022, with BET and Grammy Award winning rapper turned fashion icon Lil’ Kim front row.
“He’s obviously one of the best, he’s everything,” said Lil’ Kim, wearing a red ruffle puff ball of a minidress to the Christian Siriano show Tuesday night. Her red and black dress was styled with black pumps. Kim’s makeup was well done and her floor-length ponytails stood out.
Alicia Silverstone, Busy Philips, Christine Quinn, Katie Holmes, Coco Rocha and more celebrities were in attendance at Christian Siriano’s NYFW spring 2022 show.
“Things just seemed to fall into place,” Siriano said backstage, explaining how he’s always wanted Lil’ Kim to attend one of his shows. He’s also always wanted to have Marina from Marina and the Diamonds at the mic, and that fell into place, too. Dripping in fringe, Marina Lambrini Diamandis belted out ballads that brought even more heart to Gotham Hall.
On the runway, Siriano went all-in with celebratory looks, from a white satin draped gown edged in eyelash fringe to a resort-ready black sheer lace tunic top and flared pants set, to an enormous neon green tulle ball skirt topped with a cheeky black marabou string bikini, all inspired by photos of his Italian grandma on holiday in Positano in the ’60s and ’70s.
