Models @ The 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards

Here’s a look at my favourite models who graced the red carpet at the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards last night.

They just made picking a Top 10 for this event almost impossible.

Alessandra Ambrosio: Prabal Gurung walked the red carpet very proudly with his supermodel date for the night. Alessandra was unbelievably breath-taking in her Prabal Gurung Fall 2011 gown. She blew everyone out of the water at this event as she worked every seam in this amazing gown.

Karlie Kloss: Jason Wu also dressed his favourite model in red. Karlie’s jewels were more subtle and she added a black clutch and a black belt to her sophisticated look.

Gwyneth Paltrow In Rachel Roy – “My Father’s Daughter” Book Signing

Gwyneth Paltrow still loves her edgy heels with a minimalist dress look which works so well for her.

She added a bright pop of colour to her look yesterday at Williams-Sonoma in Beverly Hills for the signing of her new cookbook, “My Father’s Daughter.”

This is a bolder hue than we’re used to seeing from Gwyneth, but I love it.

She works the bright block colour Spring trend with this figure-hugging short sleeve satin pencil Rachel Roy dress which is surprisingly below the knee.

Spunky Camilla Skovgaard platinum sandals, a Giles & Brother necklace and big bouncy hair completed her look.

Gwyneth’s second look, which she wore for her appearance on the ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ was a much simpler LWD by Yigal Azrouel.

Her black strappy Jimmy Choo ‘Eramus’ sandals and perforated belt added the edge to this look.

I love that Gwynie is constantly giving us amazing footwear on the red carpet when most stars stick to the same two pairs of pumps.

Yigal Azrouel Fall 2011

I dragged my tired self to the 9am show for Yigal Azrouël’s Fall 2011 presentation. It was well worth it.

The energetic vibrant collection was just the Cup of Joe I needed to wake me from my fashion week fatigue.

The menswear inspired collection celebrated the strength and power of artistic femininity.

We saw many outerwear pieces in this collection. I especially loved mandarin orange opera coat paired with a grey pullover and ivory cropped pants.

We saw very well tailored looks, oversized knit tails, coats rested on shoulders, starched white shirts, cropped cigarette pants and a few gowns on a colour palette of salmon pink, jade green, mandarin orange, grey, ivory and black.

Key accessories included black bow-ties, gold ties, headbands, leather and suede wedge ankle boots plus skinny belts.

Front Row: Vanessa Hudgens

Favourites: Check shearling vest, jade Swarovski crystal encrusted blouse paired with salmon pants and salmon dress with tux shirt and gold tie

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Chloe Sevigney, Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth, Ginnifer Goodwin, Liv Tyler and Thandie Newton.

“Despicable Me” London Premiere – Miranda Cosgrove In Cut 25 by Yigal Azrouël

Tonight in London Miranda Cosgrove attended the premiere of her new computer-animated 3-D comedy movie, “Despicable Me” which also stars Russell Brand.

The young actress wore a Cut 25 by Yigal Azrouël Camo sequin dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

The camouflage micro sequin mini dress is from Yigal Azrouël’s contemporary, younger capsule collection which has an edgier vibe.

I love her Giuseppe Zanotti black suede lace up booties which I think gives the mini dress even more energy.

Miranda is one of those teen stars who’s moving into an edgier more grown up direction on the red carpet, but it never feels forced.

She always carries herself with great confidence and never tries too hard.

I love this look.

Yigal Azrouël Spring 2011

Yigal Azrouël’s Spring 2011 collection was fresh, feminine with a bit of an edge.

The collection focuses on the concept of layering as an illusion, where subtle contouring and precise definition frame elongated and linear silhouette.

On a colour palette of mostly white, grey, lemon and black we were presented with drawstring leather shorts, sharp-shouldered white blazers, a black tuxedo and lots of sheer camisoles.

I love every piece.

I can imagine models and downtown hipsters wearing this collection next summer.

Key accessories included thonged sandals in white, black, and yellow and pearl necklaces.

Front Row: Greta Gerwig

Lemon silk crepe de chine cropped blouse over a lemon silk dress and the oyster blouse with grey shorts

Who I See Wearing This Collection:
Erin Wasson, Chloe Sevigny, Christian Ricci, Cameron Diaz, Leighton Meester, Kristen Stewart and Taryn Manning

“Wet Republic Ultra Pool” – Ashley Greeene In Yigal Azrouël

Ashley Greene hosted “Wet Republic’s Ultra Pool” at the MGM Grand Resort in Las Vegas.

The “Twilight” actress partied poolside with her friends keeping cool wearing a Yigal Azrouël Resort 2011 dress over her aqua bikini.

Her white asymmetrical dress was paired with nude Alexandre Birman sandals and a matching belt.

I prefer the dress without the belt on the model, but the dress works perfectly with the belt on Ashley.

Without the belt Ashley’s dress may have ended up looking like shapeless and less interesting.
