2014 CFDA Fashion Awards Models Roundup

CFDA 1

Amid the crush of starlets and designers at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 2), the models definitely had their moment, too. They strutted out a range of dazzling, directional and sometimes daring looks at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City.

Joan Smalls: Putting her statuesque height to good use, Joan worked her midnight-navy Prabal Gurung draped, cutout gown to sexy effect also flaunting an Angelina leg through the thigh-high slit. She styled the look with metallic ankle-tie sandals and a mod fringe bang, but the gold choker necklace was unnecessary here.

Alessandra Ambrosio
: The Victoria’s Secret cat-walker took a red-hot approach in a Nonoo strapless gown featuring a structured bodice with a crossover ribbon tie at the back. She accessorized with Jennifer Fisher jewels, including a sharp, diamond-pointed pair of earrings.

Ashley Madekwe & Ahna O’Reilly In Monique Lhuillier – Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2014 Luncheon

Ashley Madekwe & Ahna O'Reilly In Monique Lhuillier - Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2014 Luncheon

Ashley Madekwe and Ahna O’Reilly attended the Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2014 luncheon held at the Monique Lhuillier Salon at Melrose Place in Los Angeles, California on Tuesday (May 20), with the ladies wearing looks from different seasons.

Ashley Madekwe: The actress went for Spring, wearing a coral re-embroidered lace shell top with a floral Lucite collar paired with a poppy guipure-lace pencil skirt. You can always rely on Ashley for a touch of flair; here she added a pair of multi-coloured Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, Rose+Stone rings and cuffs, with a hot-red lip rounding out her look.

Ahna O’Reilly: Sporting a side-swept twisted ponytail, the actress also opted for a ladylike look, with her black confetti petal-print top and skirt accented with a black patent-leather belt hailing from the Fall 2014 collection. Like Ashley, Ahna didn’t skimp on the footwear, upping the ante of her look with a metallic-gold pair of Jimmy Choos.

I think both looks are very chic and elegant for the occasion. It’s impossible for me to pick a favourite. Can you?

Cheryl Cole In Monique Lhuillier – ‘Foxcatcher’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

"Foxcatcher" Premiere - The 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Cheryl Cole made her first (and only) appearance on the red carpet this evening (May 19) for the ‘Foxcatcher’ Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.

The singer and returning X Factor judge wore a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014 strapless black lurex jacquard gown with a rise and fall hemline.

Like Jessica Chastain, Cheryl’s gown was attacked by the wind, sending her train flowing behind her, which she also handled gracefully.

With her two-tone hair swept up into a chic updo, she completed her look with de Grisogono jewels, and black Gianvito Rossi ‘Carey’ triple-strap pumps I wish were sandals.

Many of you love Cheryl for her penchant for Stéphane Rolland Couture at this event, so does this look delight or disappoint?

It’s a nice enough look, but this the first time Cheryl has failed to wow me at Cannes.

Taylor Schilling In Monique Lhuillier – ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Season Two Premiere

Taylor Schilling In Monique Lhuillier - 'Orange Is The New Black' Season Two Premiere

Taylor Schilling attended the ‘Orange Is The New Black’ Season Two premiere held at the Ziegfeld Theater on Thursday (May 15) in New York City.

Wearing a Monique Lhuillier Fall 2014 high-neck bell-sleeve midi neoprene dress, the look is punctuated with a skull print creating a dramatic effect.

Sombre for spring? Perhaps, but she looks so chic and modern, and the look is so perfectly styled with silver accessories, that I can’t help falling in love with this look.

Anna Gunn In Monique Lhuillier – FOX 2014 Programming Presentation

Anna Gunn In Monique Lhuillier - FOX 2014 Programming Presentation

Anna Gunn attended the FOX 2014 programming presentation held at the FOX Fanfront on Monday (May 12) in New York City.

Dressed in Monique Lhuillier, the ‘Breaking Bad’ actress wore a sexy net lace top and leather A-line skirt accented with a black patent-leather belt from the Fall 2014 collection.

While I know Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals have been worn a lot on the red carpet, a more slender sandal like the aforementioned would’ve been preferred to the open-toe ankle boot she selected.

An Edie Parker gold clutch and pearl drop earrings rounded out her look.
