To true fashion lovers like myself, The CFDA Awards are one of the most highly anticipated red carpet events of the year. The CFDA or The Council of Fashion Designers of America are a non-profit organisation who’s mantra and mission is to “strengthen the influence and success of American Fashion Designers in the global economy”. Because these awards are strictly about celebrating fashion, as opposed to other award ceremonies which are usually all about music or film, the people of the industry tend to really “up their game” and go all out to really wow on the carpet. This year, surprisingly, there wasn’t one main stand out outfit that really shocked everyone- I think we all remember Rihanna’s not so subtle sheer embellished gown from last year. If not, you can check out last year’s post here. I struggled to narrow them down but I eventually got my favourites down to a mere top ten, although not in order because that would be asking far too much of myself!
Amanda Seyfried in Rodarte
Vanessa Hudgens in Sachin & Babi
Gigi Hadid in Michael Kors
Emmy Possum in Dion Lie
Diane Krugar in Prabal Gurung
Michelle Monaghan in Monique Lhuillier
Katie Holmes in Ralph Lauren
Natasha Poly in Michael Kors
Janelle Monae in Tadashi Shaji
and finally….Karlie Kloss in Diane Von Furstenberg
I think if I had to pick my number one I would have to choose Amanda Seyfried in Rodarte- absolutely stunning as always!
Of course, I can’t not congratulate my favourite girls and fashion idols Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen on taking home one of the most acclaimed awards of the night- Womenswear Designer Of The Year- for their always on point and exceptionally chic brand The Row. Seeing as the duo only established their brand a short nine years ago in 2006, it is amazing to see them achieve such heights so early on in their designing careers but very well deserved! Who was your favourite look of the night? I’ll be uploading my second travel diary from Marbella next week so be sure to keep an eye out for it! Hope everyone had a lovely bank holiday weekend!
