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
