What's Christian Siriano's claim to fame? Besides winning season four of "Project Runway" and becoming the series' youngest champ, Siriano has launched his own line (that is sold at Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, no less), created an affordable line of shoes and handbags for Payless and hooked us with news that he's launching a fragrance later this year.
