The fashion world’s top models flocked to the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City on Monday evening.
Elettra Wiedemann: The model puts her best foot forward wearing a gorgeous burgundy Rachel Roy crepe twist drape dress with cut-out details. She accessorized with a Kotur for Rachel Roy multi-graphic tweed clutch, Lulu Frost jewelry and Rachel Roy ‘Farrah’ leather architectural open toe metal tri-colour sandals. I want to own every piece of this look. She is my favourite on this page.
Dree Hemingway: Her Creatures of The Wind black and gray silk abstract jacquard empire-waist dress teamed with a cropped jacket is also one of my faves. I love that she sticks to her laidback style here. We all know she can go glam when needs be. I just love her Tabitha Simmons for Creatures of The Wind silver boots.
Crystal Renn: I would’ve expected a gown from the striking model, but she opted for a Zac Posen cocktail dress. The Fall 2012 Kiko print lame cocktail dress was styled with black strappy sandals, bright green earrings and silver bracelets.
Candice Swanepoel: The Victoria’s Secret Angel looked quite apropos, wearing a heavenly light-blue lace Valentino Spring 2012 dress. Walking the red carpet alongside shoe-master Brian Atwood, Candice makes those dainty white shoes work, wearing a pair of Atwood’s ‘Melly’ ankle-wrap heels. A sweet braided ‘do tops the look.
Joan Smalls: Michael Kors’ date for the evening was stunning in a white tank dress with a high-low hem from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection. Opting to wear the look belt-free, Joan glams up her ensemble with gold accessories. A sleek ponytail and bright-pink lippie complete the look.
Jessica Stam: Perhaps Karlie Kloss was busy, as Jason Wu attended the awards with another top model as his date, rather than his usual red-carpet BFF. Jessica effortlessly filled the part, wearing a blue sleeveless gown with black lace underlay. Love this stunning Jason Wu gown, but am not sold on Jessica’s hair and makeup choices. A space-age ponytail and yellow eyeshadow don’t exactly scream chic. A Roger Vivier ‘Retro Cerniera’ clutch and Roger Vivier ‘Sadale Cage’ sandals accessorize her look.
Karolina Kurkova: The leggy blonde model went for a sleeveless Tommy Hilfiger dress with several conflicting patterns rolled into one. A bold Erickson Beamon statement necklace accessorizes the already busy look. Bright tangerine lips and black-and-gold sandals finish the confusing look.
Doutzen Kroes: The model can seemingly do no wrong when it comes to the red carpet. Doutzen looked beautiful in a sheer black Sophie Theallet silk gown with a choker detail neckline. An upswept hairdo and heavily lined cat-eyes complete the look.
Erin Heatherton: Doing Greek goddess to the max, the Victoria’s Secret model was beautiful in a bright-green Michael Kors Resort 2013 halter gown, which was presented this morning. Matching the dress’ gold neckpiece to gladiator-esque sandals and matching cuffs, Erin looks every bit the part.
Selita Ebanks: The gorgeous model looked elegant in white, wearing a half-bandage, half-draped Hervé Léger by Max Azria gown. While so many details might have looked cheap on others, Selita makes the ensemble look expensive, adding complementary silver accessories.
Shu Pei: The model wore a Vera Wang saffron silk jacquard sleeveless dress. It’s not often we see this bold colour on the red carpet. I love the dress, but I’m not too crazy about the clunky nude platform heels.
Karen Elson: The redhead bombshell wore an on-trend Proenza Schouler crop top and high-waisted A-line skirt look. The emerald-green hue is perfect for her pale skin and red hair. An Eddie Borgo clutch, a black clutch and deep Tabitha Simmons red T-straps sandals provide a rich finishing touch.
Arizona Muse: This Diane von Furstenberg puffy sequined dress is given a rock chick feel thanks to model, but I’m not a fan of those black leather boots. A DVF ‘Catena’ clutch completed the look.
Liu Wen: The model wore a printed Suno layered panel dress. Her printed frock was styled with a slick back bun and Nicholas Kirkwood for Suno booties with lavender laces.
