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.

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture – 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Marion Cotillard In Christian Dior Couture - 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Marion Cotillard attended the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 2) in New York City.

The French actress, who didn’t have the best time style-wise at Cannes, was of course wearing Dior on this occasion.

I love this Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture white embroidered silk dress. It’s sweet and playful with nuances which make it a directional piece.

The look was styled with lemon Dior pumps with an asymmetrical white strap, plus Dior Fine Jewelry including a ‘Miss Dior’ white-gold ring with diamonds and aquamarine, plus a Chopard white-diamond collar necklace.

Barely there makeup rounded out her look.

Much improved or much the same?

Blake Lively In Michael Kors – 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Blake Lively In Michael Kors  - 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Blake Lively attended the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 2) in New York City.

As one of the major players at this event, I was somewhat disappointed by her look.

Her Michael Kors Resort 2015 sequinned dress with a scalloped hemline doesn’t quite live up to the glamour of the event.

The barbarella ‘do and clunky Casadei pink suede pumps also get a resounding thumbs down from me, as the styling feels a bit too cheesy for my liking.

It’s like her mojo was left on the red carpet at Cannes.

Lorraine Schwartz diamond hoops and an armful of Lorraine Schwartz natural wood and diamond bangles completed her look.

Rihanna In Adam Selman – 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Rihanna In Adam Selman - 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Rihanna of course had to make the biggest splash while attending the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 2) in New York City as she was honoured with the Fashion Icon Award, much to the bewilderment of most.

The singer, who’s never been shy of showing off her areolas, wore a custom Adam Selman fishnet dress styled with a matching headscarf and gloves, which are all accented with over 200,000 Swarovski crystals.

Her dazzling look was also styled with a pink fur shrug, plus additional jewels courtesy of Jacob and Co.

I have to say I kinda loved it until I got to the back. Areolas are one thing, but bare butt cheeks? Really Ri Ri? What’s next – total nakedness?

Solange Knowles In Calvin Klein Collection – 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Solange Knowles In Calvin Klein Collection - 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

Solange Knowles attended the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards held at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center on Monday (June 2) in New York City.

Her Met Gala look was somewhat of a disappointment, so I was delighted to see a return to glamour here.

The singer channelled her inner Diana Ross, working a voluminous ‘fro, donning a luscious custom Calvin Klein Collection embellished pewter silk dress.

While her gown is more like something big sis Beyonce would wear, this look serves as a refreshing change of pace.

Punctuated by a frosty-pink lip and styled with Jennifer Fisher jewels and a silver box clutch, Solange looked stunning from head to toe.
