CFDA Awards 2013

The CFDA Awards…One of fashion’s biggest nights, so of course the attendees did not disappoint when it came to their attire. I don’t think there was anything that I hated, so I’m not even going to do a worsts on this one. There were a few that weren’t my favorite, but most of these outfits were pretty amazing.

Adriana Lima: Beautiful as always…legs for days.

Candice Swanepoel: ditto to what I just said about Adriana. Candice Swanepoel CFDA

Elizabeth and Mary-Kate Olsen: Not a huge fan of Elizabeth’s big sheet looking outfit…but I love Mary-Kate’s ruffled look. They both look beautiful though.Elizabeth and Mary-Kate Olsen CFDA

Sofia Vergara: Great color on her, but a very familiar shape.Sofia Vergara CFDA

Jourdan Dunn: Only certain people could pull this off…she’s one of them.

Karolina Kurkova: She should never hide her legs…ever.Karolina Kurkova CFDA

Jessica Chastain: Classy and simple.Jessica Chastain CFDA

Joan Smalls: Another simple and classic evening dress…she could wear jeans and a tee and it’d be ok.Joan Smalls CFDAKate Mara: I just think she is darling. Not my favorite dress, but I think she made it cute with simple hair and a cute necklace.Kate Mara CFDA

Nicole Richie: The only thing I don’t love about this is that I wish her hair was a little softer and more Hollywood glamour with this amazing dress. Nicole Richie CFDA2

Linda Evangelista: I really like how dramatic this is and her makeup is gorg.Linda Evangelista CFDA

Lily Aldridge: I LOVE this dress…Not loving the shoes…they make her feet look too big. Nothing about her can be considered big.Lily Aldridge CFDA

Rose Byrne: I am slightly disappointed with this, but I think it could have been 5 times better if she had put her hair up.Rose Byrne CFDA

Hailee Steinfeld: This is probably the only outfit I would have put on a worst dressed…It looks a little prairie to me. It’s just too long, not a great print, and her hair isn’t helping the polygamy vibe Hailee Steinfeld CFDA

Rooney Mara: This would have been on my favorites, but something about the shoes is throwing me off…I LOVE the dress. It’s completely her.Rooney Mara CFDA

Jessica Hart: I should hate this…but I don’t completely. I obviously wish the top didn’t have the cutouts because it looks like a monokini swim suit, but I do really like the skirt, and she looks like she’s glowing. She’s so pretty.Jessica Hart CFDA

Miranda Kerr: This is the cutest dress. I love her in this.Miranda Kerr CFDA

Ashley Madekwe: I wanted to put this on my favorites so bad, but I just don’t like the shoes!!! I wish she had done a cute strappy sandal or even a heavy sandal. I just don’t like the bright white, but I love the shape and color of the dress.Ashley Madekwe CFDA

My Favorites!

I figured I would just do a favorites section for this Awards posts since I didn’t have any ‘worst dressed’. Let me know your thoughts! Of course all of the VS Angels looked fab, but I had to mix it up a little, so here are the people who rocked my socks off.

Jessica Stam: I love how funky and fun this is. The lucite shoes and peplum are very on trend. She just looks like she’s having a lot of fun!Jessica Stam CFDA2

Alessandra Ambrosio: At first glance you might think this is boring, but the fit is so amazing, and I think she looks incredibly gorgeous.Alessandra Ambrosio CFDA

Olivia Palermo: Very Gatsby…This is fabulous. At first I didn’t like the shoes, but they grew on me.Olivia Palermo CFDA

Hilary Rhoda: Black and White is a huge trend this year and I love the twisting of the two colors. Simple shoes and a red lip. Perfect.Hilary Rhoda CFDA

Erin Wasson: She can pull off any trend I see her in. I am obsessed with the see-through cut-out look of this dress. This dress is so crisp and clean. It’s gorgeous. I love that that is how her hair and make-up is also. Amazing.Erin Wasson CFDA

Kerry Washington: I LOVE this color on her. Way to make her stand out. She literally can do no wrong this year. She looks fantastic. Kerry Washington CFDA

Top Ten Spring Fashion Trends

Here is a little cheat sheet for this springs biggest trends according to People Style Watch Magazine!

1. Colorblocking

You can do this trend with your clothing or your accessories for a bold statement! The Marc by Marc Jacobs dress below is a fu way to color block, while Carey Mulligan, Emmy Rossum, Emma Stone, and Olivia Palermo all show different ways to pull off this trend. 

2. Day Clutches

A fun alternative to your everyday handbag. (Plus if you’re anything like me and tote around a giant bag all the time, it will give your shoulder a break!) This spring larger versions of the night clutch are great to carry during the day and more functional.  The first photo shows the Hobo International ‘Katrina’ clutch which goes with anything! Olivia Palermo carries a Hermes day clutch, and while not the best picture of Naomi from 90210, it’s a great example of an oversized clutch. Love the bold color.

3. Ankle-strap Heels

You can opt for a skinny strap or wide, and both with look great for work, casual, or going out attire. Whitney Port shoes a slightly more causal look, while Charlize Theron wears them for a more dressed up look. (also check out the florals section for another sneak peak at some ankle-strap pumps)

4. Mint Green

This pastel color works on almost every skin tone so it is a great trend to pick up! Check out these Hudson Jeans or Cameron in her gorgeous mint mini-dress.

5. Leather

Leather often seems like a winter trend, but Blake Lively shows us a perfect spring jacket and Lauren Conrad proves you can rock it for a night out.

6. Blue & Green Jewelry

This “ocean-inspired” jewelry is gorgeous for the season. Banana republic and Dannijo shown below have amazing collections showing this trend. Eva Mendes wears a beautiful green statement necklace below as well.

7. Florals

You can wear this gorgeous trend on shoes, jewelry, clothing, you name it! It is getting more and more popular than ever!  Check is out on Miranda Kerr, Jessica Alba, and Elizabeth Olsen below.

8. Peplums

Peplums are bringing flirty back! This retro style can be found on dresses, shirts, and skirts! See it on Blake in her cute black and white dress or this printed dress from asos.com.

9. Metallic Heels

You can up your glam factor with metallic heels. Choose from just a tip like Gwyneth Paltrow, to a gold and silver sandals, or a colored shoe like Mila Kunis. The options are endless!

10. Neon

Neon is seriously the best color for summer…it makes you look so tan! Victoria Secret’s site has tons of neon options from this green bathing suit (which fits amazing by the way) to workout tanks to sweats! You can rock the all over neon look like Jennifer Lopez or go for Fergie’s neon pops, with her nails, shoes, and clutch. The neon against black makes it stand out that much more!
