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.
