Rose Byrne In Thakoon - 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Rose Byrne attended the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards, hosted last night in New York City at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center.

Quite a few short, cocktail frocks took to the CFDA red carpet, and the ‘Bridesmaids’ actress flaunted one of them in her party-girl dress by Thakoon.

The plunging, black matte paillettes bodice transitioned into a fancy apron-like overlay for the printed and pleated crinkle lace skirt underneath.

Chunky, Ferragamo mauve satin pumps were another puzzling contrast.

She was the presenter for the Accessories Designer of the Year (Phillip Lim took the prize), and I wanted to love Rose’s outfit. But in the end, I was less than thrilled by the way it photographed.

It is hard to argue with a ravishing red-orange lippie. But the tousled hair, with bangs twisted and pinned back at the top, seemed a bit too casual to carry off the rest of the look.

Rona Pfeiffer jewels provided the finishing touches.
