Christian Siriano's fall 2014 collection was an homage to the mid-century model. The silhouettes were culture-inspired and looked as if they were plucked out of Irving Penn's photos.

Siriano didn't reach far beyond his initial reference, but it was hard not to like the clothes. The result: he executed it better than in past seasons. "I still want her to looked dressed," he said of the oversize eyelet tops and tea-length skirts.
