At the back of Christian Siriano's new book Fierce Style is a short glossary of Siriano terms, from expired ("When something, usually an outfit, piece of clothing, hairstyle, shoe, or accessory is totally over and no longer stylist") to work ("Short for 'Work it out, tranny' or 'You better work!") While Amy Poehler taught us all how to talk like Christian in her Saturday Night Live parody, we'd like you to go her one better. After the jump, please find all of the words in his glossary. Make a sentence using as many as possible and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org—the person who sends us the sentence using the most words/phrases by Tuesday morning wins the book. (Fine print: You must be able to pick it up at Racked's East Village HQ. If we get two sentences with the same number of words, we'll pick the funnier one.)
