Meet Christian Siriano's New Boyfriend, Kyle Smith

Who is Christian Siriano's boyfriend? That's been the question on everyone's mind since the fashion designer and Project Runway contestant-turned-mentor announced that he'd found a new love just four weeks after his split from Brad Walsh.

Siriano and Walsh, whom had been dating for eleven years prior to getting married, were only able to make their marriage last for two years before splitting in June 2018. And just four weeks after announcing that he'd split from Walsh, Siriano started dating Kyle Smith, though the couple only became Instagram official back in September 2018.

Let's look at what we know about Kyle Smith, Christian Siriano's new boyfriend. 

1. Who is Christian Siriano's boyfriend? He and Kyle Smith went "Instagram official" in September 2018. 

Although the "Instagram official" post has since been deleted, Siriano had no problem raving about his "fun love" with Smith back in September 2018. The 29-year-old reportedly stole the designer's heart, and most of their dates have been "in-home" chill-out sessions, involving the two of them watching Scandal together and relaxing. Netflix and chill dates for the win!

2. Smith frequently makes loving Instagram posts in support of Siriano. 

Though they've only been dating, officially, for a bit over a year, Kyle Smith has been very supportive of his boo. He frequently makes posts on Instagram sending "love" to Siriano, and addresses the designer with such pet names as "babe." However, Smith has recently made his Instagram private.

3. Kyle Smith lost his sister, Alexis Hope Smith. 

Kyle Smith seems to be very close with his family, so much so that he was devastated when he lost his sister, Alexis Hope Smith, in a tragic car accident where she was the passenger. Her town held a benefit dinner in her memory after she was tragically killed. 

Alexis Smith's Instagram page is still active, however, and people often leave loving comments on her page saying that they miss her.

4. The couple is known for their outrageous fashion sense that complements Siriano's unique style. 

On October 27, 2018, Siriano and his new beau went to the Misshapes Halloween party, where Smith went as a Greek god and Siriano went as "Everything." The couple was noted for their wild and outrageous fashion sense at the party, which was hosted by Ketel One vodka. There were many other celebrities in attendance at this fete, but Siriano and Smith definitely stood out. 

And his over-the-top costume makes sense given Siriano's noted fashion line, as well. Siriano, who studied in London under Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen, has been dubbed "The New King of Old-School Glamour" and has dressed nearly everyone in Hollywood from Janet Jackson to Angelina Jolie.

Most recently, his poufy purple tulle dress has been featured on Harriet star Cynthia Erivo.

5. But no new stories about Siriano's relationship with Smith have been released for a while. 

Even though, it seems, that Christian Siriano and Kyle Smith are still together, no new stories about their relationship have been released since March 2019. So, as of this writing, it's safe to asuume the two are still together. 

6. What about Siriano's ex-husband?

Siriano's split from Walsh reportedly inspired Walsh's latest work, ARTBREAK. That work, which has been dubbed "deeply introspective" by critics, is the closest Walsh ever came to "spilling the beans" about his relationship with Siriano.

At the time of their split, Siriano's rep issued a statement that read, "They were together for 11 years, love each other very much and request privacy at this time." And on Monday, June 25, 2019, Walsh released a statement of his own on his Instagram Story that read, "Bit more than a month ago my husband and I separated. I was contacted by a writer for a website who somehow found out, so rather than let them break it, I’m telling you myself. It’s nobody’s business and I don’t want to discuss, but that’s what’s up.”

So, fortunately, it doesn't look too scandalous.
