Forget what you thought you knew about Christian Siriano's penchant for frivolity and in-your-face glitz. Inspired by the 1933 horror flick The Vampire Bat, the Project Runway winner exercised restraint this season with a darkly subdued fall collection.

Rife with shades of silver, midnight blue and blood red, the clothes winked at the Fay Wray film without ever giving off an overtly vintage air. Swirly tubing on shift dresses and jackets represented bat veins, fluttery sleeves were delicate wings, while an inverted widow's peak neckline was a more direct nod to the film. Leather, sure to be huge this year, gave the simplistic styles a downtown vibe, toughening even the most delicate chiffon gown.

With actresses Mena Suvari and Gabourey Sidibe in attendance, the audience showed its appreciation for the wearable collection with roaring cheers and a standing ovation.
