Bravo revealed today that it's giving Christian Siriano his own reality show which will feature the season 4 winner of Project Runway as "he sets up a new shop and markets his clothing line." Last night, however, Siriano was at Juliet, Todd English's new supper club in Chelsea, where he attended Moskova Affair, a party to celebrate the launch of Stoli's newest flavor of vodka, Gala Applik. As Jessica Szohr, Chace Crawford, Kelly Bensimon, and Richie Rich took in a performance by The Vau de Vire Society, an "acrobatic and aerial avant cabaret troupe," nightlife reporter Douglas Marshall took a moment to chat with the designer/realty TV personality (pictured here with his boyfriend, Brad Walsh) about New York's nightlife scene and how many gays it takes to make a venue too gay.
Q: So we're at Juliet, a club that hasn't officially opened yet. Have you been to any new spots recently? Would you say you're a big New York nightlife person?
CS: I like to go wherever there's a free cocktail! I'm more about new, fun places which are special and more downtown and small. And I like to do things that are artistic. I like the atmosphere here. What they're showcasing is very different.
Q: Would you hold a fashion show here?
CS: No, I probably wouldn't. But I could have my Halloween party here. That would be really good, right?
Q: That would be awesome. Do you know what you're going to be for Halloween yet?
CS: I do! But it's a secret. I'm going to be a Disney character and I am going to be a girl. But that's all I'm going to say.
Q: So there are a handful of hot spots this fall. Have you been to the Ballroom at Jane Hotel?
CS: No, what's that? [Pointing to a woman nearby] Look at her legs! Look at those! Those are not normal!
Q: Have you been to the Boom Boom Room yet?
CS: No! What is it?
Q: It's the new lounge at the top of the Standard Hotel.
CS: Ohhhhhh! Yes, we were there! But before it opened. For the Alan Cumming thing.
Q: Did you like it?
CS: It was fun. But it was way too crowded and there were a lot of gays.
Q: Do you not like that? Would you prefer there to be more gays or less gays?
CS: I just like... normal! I like it when there are a few gays, a few trannies, and few models. It's all about the mix!
