Blog, CFDA Fashion Awards
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.
yeah…i don’t get the buzz about sophia’s look either.
I missing the appeal of Bush’s dress as well. There’s nothing wrong with it, but I forgot about it instantly.
Someone other than Diane Kruger and Zoe Saldana are allowed to top a best dressed list you know.
?????? Not everyone happens to be blown away with Sophia’s LOOK, doesn’t have to do anything with who is wearing it. Confusing comment.
I agree with you, but if they consistently fit the title then props to them and their stylists.
lol I understand where you are coming from.
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
Bored by Sophia. Very bored.
Totally agree, Zoe is the best dressed. Sophia looked like a formula for a best dressed. Zoe was a standout.
Devon should be the best dressed
Dear Glenn, The readers got to vote in the poll http://www.redcarpet-fashionawards.com/2012/06/05/who-was-your-best-dressed-at-the-2012-cfda-fashion-awards/
By saying Devon should be the best dressed, you are basically saying that I am not entitled to my own opinion.
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).
Love the Look of love award. LOL
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!)
“So you do own a hair band” & “The look of love” awards!
You did again FC!!! You got me crying with laughter once again!!!
glad to hear it x
I love every single award. Sophia definitely won.
Lol @ Marc Jacobs, Dakota and Zoe.
I agree with almost everything.
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.
I almost didn’t recognize Marc Jacobs since he’s actually wearing pants.
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!
I thought Zoe looked painfully thin in her gown. It was meant for women with a full set of breasts and hips.
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!
I agree with your best dressed and lol @ Dakota’s award, so true.
‘ 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
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?
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
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.
“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.
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.
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….
I personally thought Devon was the Best Dressed, with Sophia and Zoe next in line. Sophia’s dress is pretty, but rather common-place.
Woohoo Sophia! She looks a-mazing!! Love Dakota’s award and love the picture of Marc and his partner, definitely the look of love
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.
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?
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.
Thank you. You are very sweet and sincere xt
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.
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
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
thank you x
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.
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
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).
carpet is a
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.
Thanks for your support Shaina and you are right it was offensive to others who shared my view that Sophia was best dressed.
I agree. For me Sophia was the best dressed!
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
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
