Models @ The CFDA Fashion Awards 2012

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.

Sidewalk Style – Elettra Wiedemann In Prabal Gurung

Elettra Wiedemann joined Zoe Saldana in the front row of Prabal Gurung’s Fall 2012 presentation during New York Fashion Week.

She teamed her Prabal Gurung violet paint-drip lame pants with a white Monika Chiang blazer and a white shirt.

Monika Chiang grey pumps and an Yves Saint Laurent ‘Cabas’ bag completed her look.

I adore this look from the ankles up. It’s so effortless and clean with the star item being the pants.

Elettra Wiedemann Rosselini In YSL – Vanity Fair’s ‘Man of the Year 2011′ Awards

Elettra Wiedemann Rosselini was in Madrid, Spain last night to attend the Vanity Fair ‘Man of the Year 2011? Awards.

She wore a YSL Spring 2011 strapless dress.

This is quite possibly the worst dress to hit the red carpet this year.

I’ll take Bryce Dallas Howard’s ‘I’m not pregnant’ Reem Acra dress over this flamenco-inspired look any day.

It’s too long, it’s too literal considering where she is, it’s too cheesy, the shoes work on the runway, but not on Elettra – and the belt looks like it’s suffocating her.

This should’ve been left as a runway piece.

2010 American Ballet Theatre Annual Spring Gala – Elettra Rossellini Weidemann In Toni Maticevski

American model/actress Elettra Rossellini Weidemann looked stunning as she arrived for the 2010 American Ballet Theatre Annual Spring Gala in New York last night.

I’m a huge fan of Toni Maticevski, so I was delighted to see her look so ethereal wearing a dress from his Fall 2010 collection.

I was really disappointed by how Abbie Cornish styled her Fall 2010 look recently, but this restores my faith that the collection is wearable off the runway.

The face of Lancôme rightly kept her make-up and accessories simple as the stunning detail on the bodice should be the focus of this look, but I just wish she’d done something different with her hair.

Who Wore Marc Jacobs Better? Mischa Barton or Elettra Wiedemann

Mischa Barton had a blast during New York Fashion Week. She was front row a many shows, and she also enjoyed hanging out at some of the hippest parties.

One of those parties was the Marc Jacobs after-show-party held at Hiro in New York.

To that party she wore a black embellished Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 mini dress with lace sleeves and a studded wrap-around belt, plus tights and black flats.

Elettra Wiedemann wore the same dress a few day later when she arrived at “The Burning Plain” premiere at Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema in New York.

She wore a pair of sexy strappy sandals, which I preferred to Mischa’s flats.

As much as I want to give this to Elettra, I really don’t like the way the bottom half of the dress hangs down exposing the lace underlay, which as a result gives the look a maternity feel.

So once again I’m giving a win to Mischa by default.

Selma Blair wore a similar one-sleeved version of this dress to the Costume Institute Gala.
