CFDA Awards 2011

Jun 7, 2011

The CFDA awards were yesterday, and I couldn't be happier with the winners! Proenza Schouler was my first choice for Best Womenswear Designer of the Year, and I am delighted that they have won. Proenza Schouler's collections are always incredible-their attention to detail shows through every runway look from their Spring and Fall collections. Their use of color, craft, and culture has definitely been noticed by the fashion world, and thankfully, deservingly recognized. The designer duo told Harper's Bazaar UK, in their April 2011 issue, "...We try to make things that are uncopiable and feel special and honest. We try to approach the opposite-approach things that are not cool. Our clothes come from a place of integrity." Well, their way of taking things that are "not cool" and transforming them into the most coveted-after looks on the runway has worked brilliantly.

On another fashion note, this year's style turnout was beautiful. I think minimalism was the key here, but color went right along with it. However, there was a equally stunning group of people who went for patterns and prints-on my best-dressed list, Liv Tyler, in Proenza Schouler,  was a favorite.  Alessandra Ambrosio and Chanel Iman wore shocking shades but went minimalistic with detailed accessories. Liya Kebede dressed perhaps the simplest of them all, but was my absolute favorite in Derek Lam. What do you think of my picks?

What did you think of the CFDA Awards? Who was on your best-dressed list?

  21. So glad Proenza won, really well deserved. There were so many well dressed people there, impossible to choose a favourite

  22. Lots of people were well dressed - I think they should have been better fed. Personally I thought there were a few too many overly thin people. Maybe this was just my opinion....

  23. Wowie they all look gorgeous!

  24. I too was delighted to see that both Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang won.
