The Fashion Oscars: CFDA 2013 Awards

The most prestigious awards in the fashion industry took place this Monday, at the Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center. The CFDA Fashion Awards recognizes the outstanding contributions made to American fashion by individuals from all areas of the industry and related arts. And what better occasion for a real fashion expression and style display than this one? So, after cheering for some of the biggest names in the industry, honored with an award nomination, I couldn't help but analyze the different outfits worn by the celebs on the black & white carpet. Below are some of the looks that caught my attention.


I'm absolutely a fan of Jessica Chastain's personal style. She always dresses up for the occasion, without trying to hard to impress. For the CFDA Gala, Jessica kept it chic and simple with a lovely LBD by Givenchy.
Another stunning lady, Alessandra Ambrosio chose white with her sexy sleek dress by Kaufmanfranco. Also on the black & white elegant side of fashion, was Hilary Rhoda who looked gorgeous in her Rebecca Minkoff dress...and that lovely pair of sandals!
Constance Jablonski was J. Mendel's muse, for which he created a divine goddess-like gown, while Candice Swanepoel inspired Probal Gurung to design the perfect dress for her.
The much needed splash of color on the black & white carpet was brought by Miranda Kerr, who looked fresh and bubbly in a lovely Proenza Schouler dress. The accessories and the red lips completed and complimented her look.
Sofia Vergara surely knows how to accentuate her voluptuous figure, and this time she stole the attention in a Herve L. Leroux green mermaid gown.
With two of the most attractive persons as parents, is not hard to explain why Ireland Baldwin is such a beautiful teenage girl. At only 17 she looked absolutely stunning in a red hot David Meister signature dress.


Is it Halloween yet, or maybe a witch gathering? That was the exact feeling I got when I saw this "tragedy of style" on the CFDA carpet. Let's start with the most horrific look; Michelle Harper, I'm talking about you! I know that Michelle likes to be different and eccentric, but this is too much and really, has no excuse.
When I saw Marina Abramovic photo on the CFDA carpet, I had to check and double check who was the creator of this fashion atrocity and still can't believe that Givenchy could be responsible for this.
All she needs to complete her look is a witch hat! It was a really dark night for Jemima's style; and somebody, please stop the see thru/ visible underpants trend!
I really don't know what to say about the Olsen sisters and their fashion sense, and I always thought Elizabeth was different, at least with more reality based style. Unfortunately, their outfits are just a big black nonsense.
It's hard to put a stylish lady like Linda Evangelista in the same pot as Michelle Harper and Betsey Johnson but I really hate that gown on her, it doesn't do any justice for her fit figure. I had the same problem with Teresa Palmer, who is such a young and beautiful girl and usually has a great style, but still chose to wear her grandma's dress to the gala.
We all know that Betsey Johnson is a real life character, but for a 70 year old woman, the Barbie style shouldn't be an option any more.

  10. My favourite is Miranda Kerr, who is perfect as usual :) It's too bad that the olsen sisters were dressed like this, they usually have an amazing sense of style and here it's just a black mess!
