Project Runway winner Christian Siriano thinks the recent Saturday Night Live parody of him was hilarious. The diminutive diva, 21, responded to the SNL skit featuring Amy Poehler in a dead-on impression, in an e-mail to People Magazine. Luckily, he has a great sense of humor in addition to a great sense of style.
Christian Siriano caught Amy Poehler’s impression of him on Saturday Night Live over the weekend and the Project Runway winner has just one word — an ‘F’ word — for the skit. And, no, it wasn’t “fierce.”
“I thought it was SO FUNNY,” the 22-year-old designer wrote in an e-mail to PEOPLE. “Amy [Poehler] looked exactly like me which is kinda scary, but fabulous.”
Known for his catty commentary and catchphrase, “That’s fierce,” the pint-sized designer wasn’t the only Project Runway personality to be parodied in the three-minute sketch about a hypothetical Runway spinoff, which features Siriano giving someone an apartment makeover. While Poehler played Siriano, the skit also featured guest host Amy Adams playing Runway host Heidi Klum and SNL castmember Bill Hader imitating Tim Gunn.
“The fact that they are even talking about me is so fierce, fabulous and flawless and is such an honor,” Siriano told PEOPLE. “[Poehler] was hilarious and little. It was so crazy that she looked just like me!”
And Poehler didn’t just nail Siriano’s sassy tone — she perfectly approximated his flat-ironed hair. “The hair was absolutely perfect,” Siriano wrote. “I don’t think I could have done it better myself. It was fierce!”
I saw the video clip of the skit, and I agree- it was pretty funny. I have to give serious props to Bill Hader for his perfect rendition of Tim Gunn. His impression is even better than my boyfriend’s! Yes, it’s true- my entire family sits around and does impressions of the people on “Project Runway.” My Heidi Klum is FIERCE.
