Yeah, we know what you're thinking. Femme, perhaps, but since when has anything Christian Siriano ever sent down the runway been demure? Well, a quick look at his new video lookbook (boyfriend Brad Walsh produced it and provided the tunage!) for spring 2012 shows that, while the young designer is still whipping up his share of frilly, red-carpet showpieces, he's also managed to work sophisticated, understated wearables into his new collection. His simple white jacket, gauzy chartreuse skirt, and striped, sleeveless top certainly belong in the R29 shopping list, and other, more ambitious pieces here – worn by the ever-beautiful, ever-eye-catching Mena Suvari at NYC's own Soho Grand – are more than worth a try. Siriano may still be "fierce", but it seems he's willing to relax a little too.
