Mena Suvari praised for fashion ad

Mena Suvari is "stunning" says Christian Siriano.

The actress has been cast as the star of the designer's Spring/Summer 2012 campaign and is modelling upmarket creations in his first video lookbook.

The blonde beauty can be seen strutting down the corridors of a posh New York hotel in an Audrey Hepburn-esque combination of black sunglasses and a lime-green fitted dress.

In another scene she shows off her stunning looks in a dramatic coral-coloured evening gown while gallivanting in a luxury suite.

Christian was thrilled to work with the Hollywood star.

"She is stunning, an amazing actress and I really wanted this video to have real-life emotions and feeling behind it, which I don't think I would have been able to capture with just a model," Christian told US publication People.

"I wanted this video to feel elegant and dramatic but still have a chic downtown vibe. I also really wanted to show the collection in a different light than just a typical runway show."

Mena shot to fame thanks to her role in US movie franchise American Pie but has also developed a career in fashion.

She is a face of Lancôme cosmetics and print ads for Lancôme Paris Adaptîve.

The 32-year-old has also featured in several fashion blogs and magazines such as Vogue.
