You’d think a fashion awards show would be peak red carpet, featuring better and more daring lewks than your average awards show.
jumpsuit by Versace, shoes by Stuart Weitzman
Gigi is extremely hit-or-miss for me when it comes to her red carpet excursions, and this Olympic bobsled uniform is definitely not for everyone. But it’s bold, bright, and weird, which is more than I can say for 95% of the CFDA Awards attendees. Keep surprising me, Gigi.
tuxedo by Michael Kors
Sleek, stylish, and sexy. The slicked-back hair, mod eyeliner, and silver watch really tie the look together.
TRACEE ELLIS ROSS
gown by Carolina Herrera
I’m not sold on that shade of lipstick, but everything else about this is, in classic Tracee fashion, adorable and fun.
dress by Michael Kors
It’s very simple, but I can’t get over how great her hair and makeup are. And I would gladly wear this dress every day, which is not something I usually say about Michael Kors looks.
dress by Monse
A few too many stars opted for slightly nonsensical asymmetric dresses, but Dianna was smart enough to pair her blush ensemble with those gorgeous crimson accessories. Honestly, I probably would have hated this dress without them.
dress and shoes by Cushnie et Ochs
Fantastic color, cool neckline, good accessories.
dress and shoes by Sies Marjan
The perm is a lot to handle, but I love the ombre, the shoes, and the Elvisian snarl.
gown by Tommy Hilfiger
Winnie never looks less than glam as fuck in a pretty dress, and this is no exception. But to me, a fashion industry event is where stars – especially models – can really let their hair down and take some sartorial risks. I just we’d seen a little more of that risktaking from Winnie (and pretty much everyone else).
dress by Brock Collection, jewelry by Irene Neuwirth, purse by Tyler Ellis, shoes by Chloe Gosselin
See? Even one of our queens of weird fashion (did you see her at the Ocean’s 8 premiere?) went for something mostly run-of-the-mill. I guess the bauble jewelry is funky, and juxtaposes nicely with the sweet, summery floral, but I’m still pretty underwhelmed.
gown by Jason Wu
It’s pretty and effortless, but effort isn’t always a bad thing. I’ve just seen Karlie in a few too many monochromatic dresses with a little draped or pleated detail, so I can’t get too excited about this.
jacket, pants, and shoes by Sies Marjan
I think with any other shoe, I could have gotten on board with this linen pajama suit situation. But those clunky yellow things strapped to her feet really distract me from the easy-breezy, wind-in-your-pants vibe of the rest of the look.
gown by Zac Posen
It’s a little “my first Tony Awards,” from the cut to the color to the high-low hemline to the Zac Posen label. (And yes, I recognize that the Tony Awards also happened; and yes, I will be blogging them. After I finish the world’s stupidest CFDAs.)
suit by Christian Siriano
Fuck it. It’s bright, it’s fun, and nobody else was willing to take a fucking risk. I’ll applaud it.
dress by Calvin Klein
Finally, a definitive answer to the question of, is there such a thing as too much fringe?
dress by Tommy Hilfiger, shoes by Brian Atwood
Great bathrobe, Alessandra!
gown by Narciso Rodriguez
Claire gets a pass, because she is pregnant and wearing heels and thus gets to do whatever she damn well pleases.
You all know I love me some lady-pants, but this suit just isn’t interesting enough for me. Also, keep an eye on those purses that look like deflated balloons. They are all over the red carpet right now.
dress by Zuhair Murad, jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz, shoes by Sarah Flint
The styling doesn’t make any sense to me. The shoes and bag are terrific, for a different outfit. The hair and makeup don’t work with the aesthetic at all.
dress and shoes by Sies Marjan
Oh, goody, the straightjacket trend is here! What a totally reasonable and not at all logistically confusing way to dress.
jumpsuit by Gabriela Hearst, jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz
She’s stunning, and her necklace is incredible, but the proportions of this jumpsuit wouldn’t work on anybody.
gown by Brock Collection, shoes by Jimmy Choo
jewelry by Tiffany & Co.
Are Maddie Ziegler and Paris Jackson actually the same person, or do all Gen Z-ers look the same to me because I’m old?
gown by Nicole Miller
oh no baby what is you doing
The marigold saloon-wench nightie is bad enough. Did she really have to add almost-but-not-quite matching shoes, and an inexplicable zebra-print purse?
top, shorts, and tights by Alexander Wang
This is very, very dumb.
top and skirt by Rick Owens
I give up.
