The CFDA Awards (Council of Fashion Designers of America) were held the other night, and the best of the fashion industry came out to play [see last year's post here]. With the awards being fashion’s equivalent to the Oscars, there are always amazing get-ups on display.
Brad Goreski – adorable as ever - in Simon Spurr.
Ashley paired her The Row dress with Manolo Blahnik heels, while Mary-Kate wore a Chanel jacket, The Row skirt, and Louis Vuitton shoes. Both carried The Row bags – which I love, by the way.
Chanel Iman & Lubov Azria, both in BCBG Max Azria. Can’t help but obsess over those bright colours, & the fact that BCBC Max Azria has come out with so many fabulous long minimalistic dresses as of late.
Kerry Washington wearing Calvin Klein Collection. I love everything Calvin Klein, and this is no exception. No frills, just simple, flattering cuts.
In my opinion, Lady Gaga topped the night with a Mugler short/long gown, a highlighter blue bob, and stilts for shoes. She won the Fashion Icon Award, and it was so well-deserved. After walking in the Mugler F/W ’11 show earlier this year, and consistantly turning outfits into art, Gaga has demonstrated that she is more than just a pop star.
Grace Coddington spotted wearing a black shift, paired with some Prada platforms & a miu miu clutch. How can you argue with that personal style? I really applaud her for rocking the fiery hair, and always sticking with her birkinstock-chic type esthetic. Good on her!
Last but not least, Iris Apfel. She has come under fire in the last month after trying to join forces with HSN and sell some knock-off jewelry. But you can’t argue that Iris looks so darn good! I hope to be as stylish when I am her age… Trendy little bugger.
Last, and maybe least…
Here’s Jessica Alba in a DVF maxi dress. Okay, I know it isn’t cool to diss a pregnant lady. And there are so many great elements here. I mean, colour blocking! Who can go wrong with fuschia & orange? And usually maxi dresses + baby bump = safe choice. Maybe it’s just me, but it just seems all wrong.
