You don't have to win Project Runway to reap the benefits of the design savvy show!
Chris March has enjoyed considerable success since his stint on Project Runway, and now his success is even more palpable: a month before Sunday's Golden Globes awards, March was approached to design the awards show dress for for double-nominee Meryl Streep.
What a huge honor! And that doesn't look bad on your resume, either!
Apparently, the designer had originally met the actress through her hair and makeup team, and she requested him to do her look. And we loved the outcome! She looked beautiful and elegant.
"I wanted to faint [when they asked me]! I have always wanted to design something for someone like that, and it was a great and amazing opportunity…. I liked the idea of putting a belt on an evening gown - I think it gives a modern twist. I sketched it out quickly and she really liked it.
She is the sweetest person you can imagine. She's very friendly and welcoming and I wasn't nervous at all. I almost had a heart attack when Colin Farrell read her name. It was very exciting to see her come up on stage wearing a dress that I made with my own two hands. I thought it made her look tall and thin and comfortable and confident. It looked great!"
We agree! She must have been very pleased.
Congrats to the designer and actress on their respective honors!
