Lauren Conrad isn’t the only TV star showcasing one of her designs at Primetime Emmy Awards. Project Runway‘s Christian Siriano will also be creating a one-of-a-kind red carpet look for a second Emmy trophy girl. “I am honored to design a gown for this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards trophy presenter,” said Christian in a released statement. “It has been so inspiring watching the Emmys every year to see who is going to be the most fabulous diva at the show. It’s wonderful to see what the stars are wearing and which designer takes over the carpet. It will be such an experience seeing my own creation on stage.” We are sure that Christian’s dress will be nothing short of “fierce”. The Primetime Emmys will be aired on Sunday, September 21 on ABC. Tell us: Whose dress are you more excited to see, Lauren Conrad’s or Christian Siriano’s?

I watched Christian Siriano on project Runway and saw him evolve into a fantastic designer. I am really happy for this guy and can’t wait to see what he creates. I think Christian is “Fierce”.

[…] Christian Siriano will join Lauren Conrad in designing a look for one of the Emmy trophy presenters. Aren’t you already itching to see the design disparity side by side? It’s kind of lame that Christian has to design alongside L.C., but we love that the Emmys have so much Project Runway flavor with Heidi Klum co-hosting and all. Oh, we do hope Tim Gunn presents something! [Off the Rack/People] […]

Totally Christian!!

Em on

He is a true designer…proven!

are you serious? no contest! christian. LC is not a designer – only a ‘wannabe’. her looks are so entirely uninspiring and mall-like, it’s embarassing, actually.

Kirsten on

WHO CARES about Lauren Conrad. I am definitely interested to see what Christian designs. He is a “fierce” designer!

I’d like to see one of these celebrity designers make it work on Project Runway. Not sure they can cut it alongside Christian! I was merely curious to see what Lauren would put on the Emmy girls, but now I’m excited to see what Christian will do. Yay!

Mary on

I don’t believe Lauren will create her design on her own for this event. Actually, I sure Lauren gets outside help on all her collections as well.

Dorothy on

Christian’s of course! He has amazing designs-so innovative and sophisticated. I still think that Lauren was a very poor choice to design formal wear her style is very casual and I think her dresses will be very plain and boring.Unless Mary turns out to be right and she gets outside help for the task.

Ummm. Christian, obv.
LC can prtend she’s a designer, but she’s not.

SY on

DEFINITELY LAUREN CONRAD! people need to realize and see that she has actual talent. being a young and beautiful celebrity shouldn’t discredit her abilities as a designer. so go lauren! can’t wait to see what she designs.

Sue on

Congratulations I admire his talent. I am curious what type of market is he aiming for. Just Couture?

Sabrina on

I’m definitely more excited to see Christian’s design!!!! It’ll be fierce, I’m sure.

I can’t wait to see Christian’s design.He is the best!Love his work…I like others think Lauren will have lots of help with her so called design.

TM on

Christian on his own will do a beautiful design….Now Lauren on the other hand will need some help for sure and I’m sure she will get it.
