CFDA Awards

It was the biggie Council of Fashion Designers of America awards last night and obviously you have to dress to impress.

I’ve just been flicking through some pictures on Elle and JustJared and I must say my favourite so far, surprisingly is, Dakota Fanning. It’s a really girlie girl dress by Marchesa, that suits the 16-year-old perfectly, none of this try hard full length gown but an age appropiate white mini dress with the recognisable ruffle style from the brand.

Alexa Chung was there, obviously, and sometimes I am so mystified by her style choices I wonder if she does it just to be “cool and edgy”. Her dress was by Marc Jacobs, and it fell at an awkward angle just above the ankles, there are not many people that can pull that length off and it appears she isn’t one of them. The intricate detailing is pretty but I’m afraid it just doesn’t wow me. However, she does appear in a picture that I have to paste here, because boy, does Ed Westwick clean up NICE. Wowza.

Then for the models I must say that Devon Aoki looked amazing in a full-length monochrome Zac posen gown, with her hair in a tight ponytail and classic pillarbox red lipstick. How is it possible for Jessica Stam to maintain that very youthful glow? It makes me sooo jealous, she looked sexy but sultry in a full length sheer black gown (I can’t find the designer). And to be fair Gwyneth Paltrow held her own against the models, in a Michael Kors gown, which strangely from the front makes her look wider than she really is but turn her to the side she’s ol’ skinny Gwynny.

Sarah Jessica Parker was there, but I’m a bit bored of seeing her at the moment so I won’t paste a piccy. But she had on an Alexander McQueen print dress that according to Elle was hand-picked out for her by the label’s new head designer Sarah Burton. Anfd I’ll just mention Jessica Biel, because I’m pretty sure it should be about time to sack her stylist, her Diane von Furstenberg dress was gaudy and just not for her she really needs to get the hang of this red carpet dressing if she is going to compete with all the other well-dressed actresses.

One thought on “CFDA Awards

  1. I completely agree about Chung and that dress but having said that the colour suits her surprisingly well. Ed Westwick, well, that man is just in a league of his own. And I do have to say you’re right about the cute Marchesa dress on Dakota – she looks adorable! Although I would have definitely lost the ‘hi I’m 13 years old’ headband, not good.
