The CFDA AWARDS: Fashion’s biggest night
Story by Brittany Dobbins
TWO WORDS… FASHION HEAVEN. New York gears up for their most fashionable event of the year filled with glitz, glamour or maybe a few fashion mishaps…and that my fashionistas is The CFDA awards (which took place on June 1st at Lincoln Center). Most importantly it is a night honoring the ‘crème de la crème’, the best of the best in fashion….the designers of course! From my favorite kooky and let’s not forget the very flexible (no-pun intended) fashionista Betsey Johnson who received the lifetime achievement award (much deserved!), to Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Alexander Wang as well as the Olsen twins. Just an FYI: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen created a collection called ‘The Row’ it’s basically a mix between bohemian and vintage #Obsessed. Now let’s get back to the most important part of the event….the FASHION duh!
Nina Dobrev. I mean…BEYOND GORGEOUS. The feathered skirt was mesmerizing! She was styled by the incomparable ilaria Urbinati wearing a Lela Rose two-piece ensemble paired with Kurt Geiger shoes, a glam Lee Savage clutch and H. Stern earrings.
*Shine bright like a diamond* the detail is exquisite & her hair…OMG #HairGoals
Karlie Kloss looked chic in a long polka-dotted V-neck dress by Diane Von Furstenberg on the red carpet. If you look at a close-up photo of Karlie, you can see how FLAWLESS her complexion really is #ThatMakeupThough #RedWineLipstick #BeyonceReference. Oh and she’s wearing flats btw… FLATS. I know what you’re thinking, how the hell did she pull that off?! Well she did and looked fabulous doing it! And she didn’t even wear a necklace! #Amazing
Karlie looks ravishing in red. #MatchingClutch #Flats #PolkaDots
Gigi Hadid showed up to the #CFDA’s looking like Marilyn Monroe’s long lost sister in a metallic sequin jumpsuit by the exquisite Michael Kors. Two words: GLAM SEXY. #Swoon
Gigi always knows how to look sophisticated but add that sexiness to her outfits! #ModelStatus
Kim Kardashian slayed the red carpet in a custom-made Proenza Schouler dress…Bow Down baby. Bow Down. No, but seriously she looked fly as hell on that carpet. Oh and she’s pregnant with her 2nd child…BOMB DROPPED. #TheWests #SheLooksBeautifulPregnant
Victoria Beckham made quite the bold fashion statement wearing an “LBD” = Long black Dress from her own collection to the #CFDA’s and paired it with some vintage-inspired statement necklaces. She has that sexy elegance every woman wants and desires.
John Legend’s wife aka Chrissy Teigen…the queen of twitter stepped up the sex appeal in a white high-slit Solace London gown. MARVELOUS. JUST MARVELOUS. Even a small wardrobe malfunction (which she called the “highest caliber” of wardrobe malfunctions) can’t stop her from walking that red carpet like nobody’s business! #WERK #ShesMySpritAnimal
And last but not least…..is the beautiful blue-eyed Blondie Amanda Seyfried… her last name is pronounced “sigh fred” not “say freed” and no it’s not “fried” like a French fry. Get it? Got it? Good. Now that we’ve gotten that over with, back to the DRESS. She stunned everyone in a sequin low-cut Rodarte dress (from his fall 2015 collection) paired with some gold glam Christian Louboutin sandals and wait for it….Monique Pean jewelry. #ShortAndSexyIsBest It seems as though we have a theme going on here. #Sequins #Rodarte
Here’s a close-up of the dress, isn’t it just magnificent?! #OldHollywoodGlam
I really wanted to capture every moment of the #CFDA’s…in writing of course! So for your viewing pleasure I am going to include a bunch of photos from the #CFDA after- party, just to give you an inside look of how the STARS party it up! #MixingBusinessWithPleasure A little pleasure never hurt anybody…especially in fashion.
