    Soooo…in other news…look at Marc Jacobs and his porn star boyfriend! Hot right? :))

    But seriously, I may not agree with FC about her choices but it doesn’t give me a right to harass her about it. It’s her blog in the first place so RESPECT 🙂

    Just wanted to voice my support for you FC! Please keep doing what you’re doing–this is my favorite blog and I don’t know what I’d do without it! Sometimes I agree with your choices and sometimes I don’t, but THAT’S FINE! We’re both entitled to think what we want and I hope that I’ve never voiced my opinion in a mean-spirited way. I’m so grateful for your expertise, your professionalism, and your classy sense of humor. Don’t let the naysayers and the disrespect get to you!!! 🙂

      thanks Emma x

    I agree. For me Sophia was the best dressed!

  4. Shaina June 7, 2012 at 17:21 #

    I’m shocked at some of these comments! I too think Sophia was the best dressed, I also voted for her in the poll.

    I understand people having another best dressed but the comments are so harsh. It is your opinion and many people shared it. They are not only being offensive towards you, but everyone who shared your same opinion.

    I agree with all your awards. In fact, I was very happy to see Sophia as your best dressed because I feel she deserves the credit for a completely flawless look and beautiful presence.

    • Fashion Critic June 7, 2012 at 17:44 #

      Thanks for your support Shaina and you are right it was offensive to others who shared my view that Sophia was best dressed.

    i apologize if the tone was disrespectful because honestly u are one of the only blogs that is on it in every positive way. ur updates are constant and it is always a joy to find a break in my day to come here and see ur slightly sarcastic BUT ALWAYS well informed opinion. i am probably too sassy for my own good and in a comments section i just appear to be crazy (hence why I have only commented twice).

    both Sophia and Zoe’s looks are not doing it for me but I like Sophia better.
    My personal fave are : Joan, Solange and special mention to DVF

  7. Jones19 June 7, 2012 at 13:02 #

    What is with the comments? This is FC’s opinion and she’s entitled to it for goodness sake! Anyways I agree on every award for once 😀 I loved Zoe’s look but she needed a pop of color IMO. Sophia’s look is my favorite.

  8. yesaya June 7, 2012 at 12:09 #

    Although I disagree that Sophia is the Best Dressed, i think everybody has an opinion and we should respect that.

    And btw FC, you always fascinated me with the round-ups. XO

    • Fashion Critic June 7, 2012 at 13:00 #

      😀 thank you x

  9. adralina June 7, 2012 at 10:46 #

    FC thank you so much for this post! as usual it is spot on and my favorite to read! i agree with you Sophia looked amazing and please dont listen to what others have to say, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. i love your blog and please dont get offended by these impolite readers. thanks again for the (as usual)amazing coverage 🙂

  10. anita June 7, 2012 at 09:33 #

    Aww this was fun, I love when you do this. You have a great sense of humor. Sophia does look wonderful. I was just thinking – wouldn’t Jennifer Aniston look fab in Sophia’s outfit, too? Your blog is a great escape for me, so thank you.

  11. Fer June 7, 2012 at 09:06 #

    I’m stunned, sometimes people forget that this is a PERSONAL blog, and that you are giving US the pleasure of getting all this fashion news in time, and all the red carpet events we love as soon as possible, but THIS is YOUR blog, a personal BLOG, and Jesus, this is your WHOLE opinion. PEOPLE start to RESPECT, and appreciate FC’S work, she gives us plenty of joy, and always reads our opinions and gives us one, in the best dressed polls, and in this comments, so PLEASE , PLEASE RESPECT. JESUS.

    • Fashion Critic June 7, 2012 at 09:12 #

      Thanks Fer.

      As I said to another kind reader I’m shocked by the comments on this post. It has made me not want to bother doing this again as it was suppose to be fun, but the mean spirited comments have taken the fun out of it so why bother?

      • Fer June 7, 2012 at 09:35 #

        NOO fc, this posts are amazing, really, you just don’t have to pay attention to haters, let them speak, just do it because you enjoy it, and because as me, there are thousand of others that loveeee this kind of post. Sometimes we forget to say how gratefull we are for something, and… really FC, i don’t know what would i do without this page, and for that i will always be grateful with you.

        • Fashion Critic June 7, 2012 at 10:01 #

          Thank you. You are very sweet and sincere xt

  12. Jess2 June 7, 2012 at 06:27 #

    Woohoo Sophia! She looks a-mazing!! Love Dakota’s award and love the picture of Marc and his partner, definitely the look of love 😀

  13. Tina June 7, 2012 at 04:24 #

    I personally thought Devon was the Best Dressed, with Sophia and Zoe next in line. Sophia’s dress is pretty, but rather common-place.

  14. CreoleLady June 7, 2012 at 02:49 #

    Yep, Sophia just — and I mean just — beat out Zoe at the wire for me too. Sophia’s shoes were a touch of stylistic genius. Cracking up over the love look and the hair band….

  15. bm June 7, 2012 at 02:40 #

    My choice also Sophia Bush.
    I don’t get it why people here are really offensive about their choice not match with yours. This is fashion we talking about, and it has a million opinions.

    • Fashion Critic June 7, 2012 at 07:51 #

      “I don’t get it why people here are really offensive about their choice not match with yours.” – I don’t get it either. I have found some of the comment to be quite offensive. It’s like people are saying I’m wrong or not entitled to my own opinion. I say each to their own.

      • CreoleLady June 7, 2012 at 11:14 #

        I started grinding my teeth as I read some of these comments. It’s not the disagreeing, it’s the tone. I disagree all the time — and so I apologize right now if my tone or expression has ever been offensive or suggesting that you are not entitled to your opinion.

        Brush the dirt off your shoulder and keep doing your thing ;). I respect your opinion, enjoy your rapier wit, and appreciate your tireless work ethic.

  16. jb June 7, 2012 at 01:31 #

    ummmm, what??? FC I love u girl but Sophia’s dress is ill fitting and the split is oddly placed. the shoes cut her off at the ankle u said the other day that someone reminded u of a WAG what is this look other than WAG-alicious? Nothing original and its not even well executed. Again I just read in silence normally but with Devon, Joan and Solange all looking great u say the average (that is being polite) Sophia is best dressed?

    • Fashion Critic June 7, 2012 at 08:26 #

      JB…I gave the readers a chance to vote, these are my choices.

      I wish your response had been a LOT more respectful.

      I don’t have to like what you like and visa verse

  17. pg June 7, 2012 at 01:11 #

    ‘ knocked it out of the ball park’

    Im confused, sophia looks ‘nice’ in a conventional boring way but i agree with other comments as she doesn’t really look fashionable. Quite dated actually…. that hair?

    Zoe represents a new celebrity who understands fashion and how to make clothes work for her.

    I would pick devon Aoki before Sophia

  18. justme June 6, 2012 at 23:33 #

    I agree with your best dressed and lol @ Dakota’s award, so true.

  19. Jessica June 6, 2012 at 23:17 #

    I also voted for Sophia! Love the colour of the dress and how she accesorized it. Plus those shoes! Love everything about this look, she looks radiant!

  20. Dhppy June 6, 2012 at 23:10 #

    I thought Zoe looked painfully thin in her gown. It was meant for women with a full set of breasts and hips.

  21. Hailie June 6, 2012 at 22:33 #

    I always love your round up posts FC, they always make me laugh – Thanks! 🙂
    I loved, loved Sophia’s outfit. I have had a soft spot for her for years now and I just think the orange was so fresh and she just looked flawless, in my opinion anyways!

  22. Emmeline June 6, 2012 at 21:42 #

    I almost didn’t recognize Marc Jacobs since he’s actually wearing pants.

  23. sara June 6, 2012 at 21:40 #

    It’s not a popularity contest, it’s a fashion one and I am glad Sophia won cause it was def the best look of the night.

  24. Yeliz June 6, 2012 at 21:36 #

    Lol @ Marc Jacobs, Dakota and Zoe.

    I agree with almost everything.

  25. Odette June 6, 2012 at 21:33 #

    I love every single award. Sophia definitely won.

  26. Foteini P. June 6, 2012 at 21:31 #

    “So you do own a hair band” & “The look of love” awards!
    You did again FC!!! You got me crying with laughter once again!!!

    Thanks 😀 😀 😀 !!!!

    • Fashion Critic June 6, 2012 at 21:36 #

      😀 glad to hear it x

  27. EmmaWoodhouse June 6, 2012 at 21:31 #

    Always enjoy reading these, even if they aren’t my choices 🙂
    Devon, Paloma and Stephanie were my favorites! Hopefully Dakota keeps experimenting with her hair! (LOl @ the award you gave her!)

  28. mm June 6, 2012 at 21:22 #

    Love the Look of love award. LOL

  29. Nat39 June 6, 2012 at 21:21 #

    On-trend Devon with most flawless presentation equals Best Dressed in my book.
    I could’ve considered ‘best boy’ worthy if he’d at least opted for solid black pants and allowed the printed jacket to be the focus (it looks rather silly and comical when paired together).

  30. Carla June 6, 2012 at 21:06 #

    FC I disagree with you, I don’t think Sophia should win ‘Best Dressed.’ Her outfit, although pretty, is not necessarily fashionable. I find her dress dress to have a somewhat common silhouette, nothing groundbreaking, whereas Zoe’s dress is unique in both the silhouette and the styling.

    They both look beautiful, I just don’t think Sophia was as groundbreaking as one expects CFDA attendees to be.

    • christine June 6, 2012 at 21:14 #

      yeah…i don’t get the buzz about sophia’s look either.

      • Dhppy June 6, 2012 at 23:12 #

        I missing the appeal of Bush’s dress as well. There’s nothing wrong with it, but I forgot about it instantly.

    • Zerina June 6, 2012 at 21:18 #


    • Lauren June 6, 2012 at 21:27 #

      Someone other than Diane Kruger and Zoe Saldana are allowed to top a best dressed list you know.

      • Foteini P. June 6, 2012 at 21:32 #


      • Nat39 June 6, 2012 at 21:39 #

        ?????? Not everyone happens to be blown away with Sophia’s LOOK, doesn’t have to do anything with who is wearing it. Confusing comment.

      • Carla June 6, 2012 at 21:44 #

        I agree with you, but if they consistently fit the title then props to them and their stylists.

      • justme June 6, 2012 at 23:32 #

        lol I understand where you are coming from.

    • MattBer June 6, 2012 at 21:31 #


      • marie June 6, 2012 at 22:12 #

        this! sophia’s look is standard, boring, anyone could wear it and make it look good whereas Zoe’s was one of a kind, working a dress that would look trashy on anyone but her

    • Amy June 6, 2012 at 23:43 #

      Bored by Sophia. Very bored.

      • Kimmy June 7, 2012 at 03:31 #

        Totally agree, Zoe is the best dressed. Sophia looked like a formula for a best dressed. Zoe was a standout.

    • glenn June 7, 2012 at 07:45 #

      Devon should be the best dressed
