So the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards (CFDA) took place this week in New York and it is one of the biggest events in Fashion – it is the Oscars of the US Fashion World. Many famous celebs attended the event including Jessica Chastain, Rooney Mara and Hailee Steinfeld.
I’ll write about who won what at the end of this post but first let’s look at the photos for style inspiration. With this being the CFDA Fashion Awards, stunning outfits are expected but there were a few in particular which caught my eye . . .
Miranda Kerr did not disappoint in her glimmering dress featuring blue and green hues in dark tones. The eye-catching dress had a rectangular neck and offered a demure glimpse of her long legs. The top fashion and lingerie model accessorised with a metallic clutch and paired the dress with black stilettos so the focus was maintained on her stunning frock.
Sofia Vergara’s vivacious figure was shown off in a green gown designed by Herve L. Leroux. Although the ‘Modern Family’ star is known to overdo things when it comes to outfits, the vivid, grassy colour and the figure-flattering draping accessorised with Lorraine Schwartz jewels sure made her stand out. A collar of emeralds and diamonds drew attention to the actress’s neckline (not that she needed much help!), while matching earrings and a chain finger bracelet on each wrist provided even more bling.
Olivia Palermo looked divine in an ethereal gold and ivory ensemble with a fringed skirt by Dennis Basso Spring 2013. Styled with a Zara clutch and Zara lace up sling-back booties the look was super pretty and this eclectic style was paired with a gold waist band and gold leaf choker to enhance the look.
These are probably 3 of my favourite outfits from the CFDAs but I am sure you all want to see the weird and wonderful outfits of the night as well . . .
