Shannon Purser is starring in the campaign for Christian Siriano’s new fragrance.

The actress, perhaps best known for her roles in TV shows Stranger Things and Riverdale, has been tapped by the fashion designer to front the imagery for his feminine perfume, Midnight Silhouette.

Snapped by Shane LaVancher in Paris, Shannon poses in a dramatic black ballgown for the photoshoot, and accordingly, she had a blast working on the project.

“Maybe one of the most surreal things that’s ever happened to me. Christian has been an inspiration to me for a while now,” she wrote alongside one of the campaign photos on her Instagram page. “He made the first dress I ever wore on a red carpet and it meant the world, especially considering how rare it is to find a designer willing to dress you when you’re plus size. It’s amazing to work with talented people, but even better to work with *good* talented people who are actively making positive changes in the world. All this to say, thank you so much for this opportunity @csiriano.”

Midnight Silhouette has top notes of bitter orange and pomelo, heart notes of freesia and immortelle, and a base of musk, praline, and vetiver.

And Shannon insisted she is a big fan of the Midnight Silhouette scent.

“I actually wear this fragrance all the time and it smells lovely, so give it a try if you’re looking for a new signature scent,” the 22-year-old added.

Christian posted a string of images from the photoshoot on his Instagram page too, writing in the caption: “Celebrating this beauty and her silhouette for our new fragrance!”

And a number of his celebrity followers were quick to praise the imagery, with Christina Hendricks commenting, “Takes my breath away,” and Lili Reinhart praising, “The Lord has blessed us on this day.”

Christian Siriano has played with fringe and metallic fabrics for his spring/summer 2020 collection.

The American designer unveiled a line as part of Paris Fashion Week for the first time on Wednesday, with the spectacle at the Place Vendome drawing in celebrities such as Karlie Kloss, Alicia Silverstone, Larsen Thompson, and Shannon Purser.

“A little finale in Paris, what a dream! Thank you everyone,” Siriano wrote alongside a video of models parading the runway on his Instagram page, adding: “Can’t believe we just showed our collection in Paris! Thank you everyone for all the hard work!”

Coco Rocha opened the presentation in a mint green metallic ensemble with draped sleeves, with the outfit followed by a number of looks in a light green, black, and white colour scheme.

Siriano, a vocal advocate of inclusivity in the fashion industry, cast a diverse range of models in the show, including Marquita Pring, who rocked a black jumpsuit, 71-year-old Maye Musk, who dazzled in a gold suit with eye motif print and oversized belt, as well as Precious Lee, who turned heads in a shiny purple crop top and a rainbow striped skirt.

Partway through the presentation, Siriano dropped in a line-up of black evening outfits complete with glittery fringing.

Other key outfits included iridescent raincoats, pink glitter suits, evening gowns in hot pink and marigold taffeta, and a series of dramatic ballgowns, such as the black tulle dress with huge skirt which was worn by Daniela Aciu.

Accordingly, Siriano’s celebrity friends were quick to praise the range, with Kloss writing on Instagram, “Proud of you and your Paris debut,” and actress Christina Hendricks adding: “I’m so jealous!!!!!!! I love you guys.”
