Christian Siriano is a jack-of-all-trades. Since winning the fourth season of Project Runway, the fashion designer has been dressing A-list stars from Michelle Obama to Lady Gaga, as well as helping break gender norms by creating inclusive,. When he's not busy serving as the current mentor on Project Runway, which is in its 19th season, he's building an empire that spans fashion, bridal wear, custom furniture, interior design, and now - wait for it - mattresses.
"I really think that couples are focusing on getting important staple pieces for their home, whether they're getting married or as a new couple," Siriano told Travel + Leisure. To help, the multifaceted designer teamed up with Beautyrest to create, "a luxurious offering featuring an elegant ruffles top-panel design, with intricate and sophisticated details inspired by his latest bridal collection."

I get why it has 27,000 five-star ratings now. Gallery: 10 Ways You Abuse Your Eyeglasses Without Even Knowing (Reader's Digest) Although many mattresses claim to be cooling, or at the very least temperature-controlling, Nectar's mattress is the only one I've ever felt that's actually cold. That's because the first of its five layers is a cooling quilted layer blended with heat-wicking copper fibers, and the second-which the brand calls ActiveCool HD-is a 4-inch cushy gel memory foam that "dynamically adapts to your sleep temp.

"I feel like it's something that we forget about because we are just used to, you know, going to bed," he explained, adding that people should go to sleep on something "made to perfection." This mattress, using cooling technology and the company's most advanced support spring system, is exactly that. "You don't even want to put sheets on them, they're so pretty."
As a fashion-turned-mattress designer, Siriano has traveled the world showing his designs and searching for inspiration, meaning he has a lot to say when it comes to how we should dress for air travel. "I love when I see women in big hats and all their jewelry, it's so much fun," he told T+L. "But on the flip side, it's really nice to be in. You put it up over your head and no one can see you." On a recent flight to "nowhere fancy," the designer noticed men wearing suits, people toting designer luggage, and plenty of jewelry - reminiscent of the golden age of travel, if you will. "Maybe travelers are into it now," he said.
Casper Just Launched a New Cooling Collection for Hot Sleepers — and It's a Game Changer
I'm a hot sleeper, and Casper's new Cooling Collection has seriously improved how I sleep. As someone who takes her sleep very seriously and is always looking for ways to upgrade those precious eight hours I spend in bed each night, I was beyond excited to test Casper's latest and greatest innovations. Like 48.9 percent of Casper's survey respondents, I too tend to get hot at night, sometimes waking up sweaty and uncomfortable, so I was ready to see if the Cooling Collection would put an end to those too-toasty nights.
Like making sure he has plenty of rest, Siriano uses his own flying time to disconnect and recharge. "I want to use a flight to shut off," he said. "I never buy the internet. I don't look at my emails - it's my favorite thing, even if it's a really long flight. I like to just be [and] watch movies and shows." As for the destination, he'd rather spend time searching for inspiration in new cities than sunbathing on the beach.
Now, during, Siriano is reflecting on what he loves about and its history and importance to the LGBTQIA+ community. "What's so great about New York is that it has such a celebration of people and cultures and diversity," he explained. "And that's why it's such an important place to keep alive and going - there's no other place like it."
