CFDA Awards Best And Worst Dressed
Known as the “Oscars of Fashion”, the CFDA Awards celebrated its 50th Anniversary at New York’s Lincoln Center. The red carpet was full of fashion risk-takers, and though many risks paid off, just as many fell flat.
Lily Collins in Marchesa: The actress’ innovative turtleneck dress embellished with a golden bird was accessorized with gold Zanotti pumps and Swarovski jewelry. Props to her for taking a chance!
Zoe Saldana: Accompanying designer Prabal Gurung, the actress wore a plunging black draped Prabal Gurung dress with sultry mesh cutouts and long sleeves, leaving her hair simple. Gorgeous!
Devin Aoki: The model stunned in a red and black peplum alice + olivia gown with a long train, accessorized with black drop earrings and a low chignon.
Hilary Rhoda in Rebecca Minkoff: The model arrived with designer Rebecca Minkoff and wore a geometric cutout dress in shades of blue that popped with a white clutch and strappy tan heels, both by Rebecca Minkoff.
Stacey Bendet: The alice + olivia designer worked a colorful full skirted gown and a black sparkly belt, finished off with a voluminous topknot bun and a radiant smile. Clearly, this designer doesn’t need to take herself too seriously to be a red carpet success.
Gretchen Mol: The model’s pastel blue and yellow dress was ill-fitting and frumpy, and her black strappy suede heels dragged the dress down even further. She’s a beautiful woman, but this look was one of the worst of the night.
Busy Phillips: The actress’ Martin Margiela jumpsuit was unflattering, and the fringed scarf didn’t help. Her green dangle earrings were lovely, but didn’t fit with the rest of the look.
Heather Graham: Periwinkle is a beautiful color for summer, but the actress’ ruffled high-low dress was just too casual for an awards ceremony. Hopefully she can reuse it to wear to the beach.
Doutzen Kroes: The model’s Sophie Theallet halter gown fit her perfectly, but the matching black choker was distracting and ruined the outfit.
Jessica Chastain: Her floaty white Prabal Gurung dress would have looked better on a younger starlet, and made the redheaded actress look as if she was trying too hard.
