Project Runway alum–turned–New York Fashion Week regular Christian Siriano is a true success story. And his Spring 2015 Collection? In icy arctic blues and greens, sharp laser-cut patterns, and crystal embroidery – inspired by the diffusion of light and reflective transparency of Sergio Redegalli’s glass sculptures – well, it’s par for the course.

Makeup artist Polly Mellon helped bring the vision to life, with models batting glittery eyelashes as they strutted around the set’s tall framed mirrors. We suspect shimmering lids will be a beauty trend with staying power (and one that would look particularly good on front-row guest Coco Rocha). So we connected with Polly to get the scoop on how to bring the iridescent look home.

After winning Project Runway season four in 2008, Christian Siriano went on to create a super-successful label designing clothing for A-list celebrities. But now he’s headed back to his reality-TV roots as one of the hosts of Threads, a new Lifetime competition series about, you guessed it, fashion design. The show will follow teen and pre-teen fashion designers showcasing their talents (and, I can only imagine, their drama).

I’ve been a huge fan of Christian since his reality-TV debut, so you can bet I’ll be glued to my flat screen every week – no matter how much teen angst is in store.

New York Fashion Week has come and gone, leaving us with plenty of style inspiration for the fall. From the tonal dressing at Christian Siriano to the bold furs at MILLY, we can’t help but start planning our autumn wardrobe (even if September is six months away). But since translating runway trends into wearable, everyday outfits isn’t always easy, we asked Rue Assistant Stylist Emma L. for a little help. Below, she gives us her real-world interpretations for two of our favorite Fashion Week looks.

Christian Siriano. Today, we know him as Project Runway’s youngest – and most successful – winner. Pieces from his eponymous label can be seen inside the likes of Italian Vogue and all over the red carpet. But before he conquered the fashion world, did you know he was a hairdresser? Fact. And it’s just one of the reasons Sebastian Professional lead hairstylist Anthony Cole wanted to work with the designer on his highly anticipated Fall/Winter 2014 show.

Fashion Week is all about details, from the brilliance behind the hair and makeup trends to every seam and stitch on the runway. And one thing that should most definitely not be overlooked? Those to-die-for manicures that have stolen the spotlight. So take note of these tips. They’re straight from celebrity manicurist Lisa Logan, whose client roster includes such mani mavens as Beyoncé and Mary J. Blige.

For the Christian Siriano NYFW show, Lisa used products and colors by Red Carpet Manicure, an at-home LED gel manicure system. So all the looks weren’t just runway-ready, they were also completed backstage. No salon trip needed.

Run: For your life! Dinosaur Photoshop is coming to a wedding album near you. Romantic photos? So overrated.

Know: The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) inducted 32 new designers (including Christian Siriano). Oh, to be a fly on the wall during one of those meetings.

Check Out: The winners of the 2012 Fragrance Foundation Awards. Ahh, the sweet smell of victory.
