‘Runway’ look for ‘Eloise’

'Project' winner Siriano takes on 'Paris'

Eloise is getting a fierce wardrobe.

Christian Siriano, winner of last season’s “Project Runway” and self-described “fierce” designer, will create the couture collection that will be showcased in HandMade Films’ upcoming “Eloise in Paris.” Academy Award-winning costume designer Milena Canonero has come on board the film as visual consultant.

Siriano’s designs will be featured in the culminating scene of the Charles Shyer-helmed film, when Eloise (Jordana Beatty) and Nanny (Uma Thurman) attend Paris Fashion Week.

Stefania Cella is the production designer and costume designer on the film.

“Eloise in Paris,” which is based on the series of classic children’s books written by Kay Thompson and illustrated by Hilary Knight, begins principal photography Sept. 8 in Paris, New York and the south of France.

Siriano was the TV reality series’ youngest winner ever at age 22.
