The always-lovely Sophia Bush graced the red carpet at the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday evening, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

Sophia stood out in a draped David Meister Signature dress.

The bright-orange hue is especially on-trend, as ‘Tangerine Tango’ was named the 2012 Pantone Colour of the Year.

I love that Sophia chose to add an extra pop of colour via her Christian Louboutin ‘Echasse’ blue-and-orange sandals, rather than a pair of more expected gold heels.

A Daniel Swarovski gold crystal ‘Lana’ clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewels adds some sparkle to the ensemble.

Beachy waves and skin-kissed makeup finish the summery look.
