Kerry Washington In Atelier Prabal Gurung – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

As one of the presenters at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City, Kerry Washington made a striking statement both on the red carpet and on stage.

Art or fashion? Both, in the case of this painterly, luminescent design.

Specially created for the ‘Scandal’ actress, this Atelier Prabal Gurung gleaming gown featured hand-embroidered swirls of lemon, jasmine, and ivory-hinted paillettes with Swarovski Crystal holi powder brushstrokes.

Delightful and dazzling. Would you agree?

The look was styled with Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry.

Janelle Monae In Christian Siriano – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

Janelle Monae was seeing things in black and white at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City.

Although she was rocking her signature, monochromatic colour palette, I love how she reinvented her look with this Christian Siriano Resort 2018 ensemble. Gone were the hair jewels, the hyped-up embellishment, and the high-low silhouettes. In their place, an all-new cool-girl attitude took over.

The asymmetric, half-jacket was rendered with precious refinement here, creating a creatively composed look rather than a haphazard, try-hard one. And, I love the decision to go for pants as opposed to the skirt.

An Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch smartly reflected the striped motif, with Lorraine Schwartz jewels adding sparkle and Karen Walker ‘Disco Circus’ sunglasses serving up funky spunk.

No one could wear this like Janelle, but she sure made me want to try.

Kate Bosworth In Brock Collection – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

Kate Bosworth was also in attendance at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City.

With this luminous, lemony Brock Collection custom slip dress fully embroidered with beads in a floral-camouflage design, her look was a little bit of retro and a lot of radiance.

I love how she used the flash of her Edie Parker ‘Wolf Shard Lock’ gold clutch and metallic heels to further enhance the lustrous mood.

Chloe Grace Moretz, Sasha Lane, Hari Nef, and Rowan Blanchard In Coach 1941 – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

Chloe Grace Moretz, Sasha Lane, Hari Nef, and Rowan Blanchard made up the Coach 1941 contingent at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City, with the young starlets each embracing a unique side of the collection.

Chloe Grace Moretz: Stripped of its puffy coat, Chloe’s Fall 2017 frock was certainly more season-appropriate if not a bit humdrum for the Fashion Awards evening.

Sasha Lane: I would have half-expected Sasha to keep the novelty bomber jacket atop her quirky plaid and floral ensemble in ’70s upholstery hues. But, she put on a contrasting, cross-body mini handbag instead.

Hari Nef: Also wearing a cross-body bag, its mini proportions did nothing to cover the nip slip and knickers seen through this sheer floral dress that seemed amateur at best.

Rowan Blanchard: While this Fall 2017 prairie dress had a distinct homespun vibe, it was easily the most successful of the four looks as Rowan wore it with ease and charm.

Mandy Moore, Ashley Benson & Ellie Kemper In Kate Spade New York – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

The design house of Kate Spade New York had a darling trio representing them, with Mandy Moore, Ashley Benson and Ellie Kemper all donning the label at the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5).

Mandy Moore: Fierce, feminine, and vampy all merged together in this leopard-print look that had Mandy walking on the wilder side—yet still with an underlying girly spirit. She styled the dress with an Edie Parker ‘Fiona’ clutch and Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Maya Pearl’ platform heels alongside that dramatic dark-plum lip that was undeniably ready for fall.

Ashley Benson: Also in a Fall 2017 look, Ashley donned an embroidered floral frock that, while elegantly bohemian, was a rather heavy statement for the evening. A sleeker bun would have made more sense here than her beach-y blonde waves.

Ellie Kemper: The most summery of the trio, Ellie wore a blushing nude, silver-studded dress styled with complementary Kate Spade New York accessories. Here, I think Ellie could have let her hair down in loose waves.

Brit Marling In Sies Marjan – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

Brit Marling channeled her softer side for the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City.

Enveloped in the romantic drape of a dusty-rose, bi-level Sies Marjan Fall 2017 dress, she conveyed a diaphanous ease of form.

However, this is by no means an easy look to pull off, given the looser silhouette in partnership with the clunky, lug-sole platforms.

I can understand why she opted to wear the quirky shoe, though, as this is the night to be more sartorially experimental. At least it was rendered in the tonal pink shade and not the runway’s brown version.

That said, she pulled it all off quite gracefully.
