2015 CFDA Fashion Awards

Welcome to the fashion industry’s favorite self-congratulatory ego-fest! 

Best Dressed: JANELLE MONAE
dress by Tadashi Shoji, purse by Edie Parker, shoes by Christian Louboutin

Be still, my heart. Janelle brought it 1000%, and she is giving me all the Ellaria Sand from Game of Thrones caped realness I could ever want.

Runner-Up: DIANE KRUGER
gown by Prabal Gurung, jewelry by Monique Péan, purse by Edie Parker

It is impossible to go wrong when you combine Diane Kruger, Prabal Gurung, and a major fashion industry event. Always a recipe for jaw-dropping fabness.

Honorable Mention: AMANDA SEYFRIED
dress by Rodarte, jewelry by Monique Péan, shoes by Christian Louboutin

One more embellishment and she’d look like a craft store explosion, but this manages to just barely stay on this side of fabulous. It helps that the makeup is impeccable. Amanda Seyfried is TOO goddamn beautiful.

MICHELLE MONAGHAN
gown and purse by Monique Lhuillier, jewelry by Irene Neuwirth

As tall, thin, and art-deco-fabulous as the mother-fucking Chrysler building.

TARAJI P. HENSON
gown by Vera Wang, earrings by Maxior, shoes by Gianvito Rossi

The dress is actually not that remarkable, but I forgot that for awhile because Cookie is selling the ever-loving SHIT out of it.

COCO ROCHA
gown by Banana Republic

Love the wintery pale gray of the dress juxtaposed with the dark lipstick. Also: pockets in a gown! A favorite of practical bitches everywhere.

KARLIE KLOSS
gown by Diane von Furstenberg

The styling is only okay, but the gown is damn near perfect for her. I can’t even comprehend how long her legs look. They may actually be infinite.

JULIETTE LEWIS
gown by Christian Siriano

It could use a touch more polish in the fit of the top and the styling, but it’s fun and exuberant and Juliette Lewis just always looks like she’s having a great time while laughing at everyone around her. It’s extremely endaring.

JANUARY JONES
jumpsuit by J. Mendel, jewelry by Irene Neuwirth, purse by Rauwolf, shoes by Paul Andrew

I know I should hate this, because those pants are a yo, ho, ho and a bottle of rum away from being a pirate costume, but she really brought this look together with the styling. The casually twisted knot of the bodice is sexy as hell, and the necklace brings a touch of rocker chic flair.

PETRA NEMCOVA
gown by Max Azria Atelier

Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty

A fantastic color (though Cookie wore it better). Cut-outs might be overdone, but at least these are a little bit interesting.

ALEK WEK
gown by H&M

Not the most memorable dress, but a quietly gorgeous look.

BRITTANY SNOW
dress by Rachel Roy + RVN, purse by Edie Parker, shoes by Casadei

At such an industry-insider event, Brittany is a bit out-ranked in terms of red carpet slay-ability. Maybe that’s why she kind of seems like she’s playing dress-up someone else’s clothes.

VANESSA HUDGENS
gown by Sachin & Babi

Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty

Hate the illusion top; love the two-tone skirt.

JOAN SMALLS
gown by Calvin Klein, jewelry by Jennifer Fisher, shoes by Aquazzura

It’s official: a sideboob addiction epidemic has swept the fashion industry. See also: 95% of the Cannes amfAR Gala attendees.

NATASHA POLY
gown and shoes by Michael Kors, jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz

Necklines will get lower and slits will get higher, until one day, they meet in the middle, and the red carpet will finally become the nudist colony it has always longed to be.

EMMY ROSSUM
dress by Dion Lee, purse by Lee Savage, shoes by Paul Andrew

Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty

I’ve seen this dress six thousand times this season.

LILY ALDRIDGE
dress by Thakoon, jewelry by Eva Fehern, purse by Lee Savage, shoes by Tabitha Simmons

Photo: Andrew H. Walker/FilmMagic

Make that six thousand and one.

NINA DOBREV
top and skirt by Lela Rose, earrings by H. Stern, purse by Lee Savage

Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty

I hate her hair so much, it actually hurts.

KATHARINE MCPHEE
vest by Amanda Wakeley, top and skirt by Paule Ka, glasses by Leisure Society, purse by Lee Savage, shoes by Rene Caovilla

Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty

Katharine McPhee’s definition of “nerd chic” is apparently a sleeveless labcoat, boring clothes, and Harry Potter glasses. I do not approve.

KATIE HOLMES
gown and jewelry by Ralph Lauren

Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty

My eternal reaction to everything Katie Holmes wears:

CHRISSY TEIGEN
gown by Solace London, jewelry by David Yurman, purse by Swarovski, shoes by Stuart Weitzman

Basic.

KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST
Kim’s dress by Proenza Schouler

Do they ever wear anything else? Also, Kayne’s slippers look cozy.

JEMIMA KIRKE
top and skirt by Rosie Assoulin

Photo: Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty

Two words: Rotting pomegranate.

ASHLEY OLSEN and MARY-KATE OLSEN
ensembles by The Row, shoes by Chanel

Does anyone have a spare sense of humor lying around? These two look like they could really use one.

Worst Dressed: JULIANNA MARGULIES
gown by Michael Kors

I would rather have my eyes gouged out slowly with a spoon than look upon this travesty for another moment. GOOD DAY.
