Lupita Nyong’o In Jason Wu – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

Lupita Nyong’o stood out for all the right reasons at the 2017 CDFA Fashion Awards on Monday (June 5) in New York City.

The ‘Black Panther’ actress wore a pale gold custom Jason Wu Fall 2017 dress, which looked breath-taking against her skin tone. The asymmetric neckline added a point of interest to the otherwise simple gown.

Channelling Grecian goddess vibes, the actress complemented her elegant look with a regal up-do. The Paul Andrew’s shoes were another masterstroke, adding subtle intrigue without screaming for attention.

This look was positively luminescent. It didn’t fight for attention amongst the other embellished CDFA looks, but it was quietly captivating.

Nicole Kidman In Oscar de la Renta – 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards

With Nicole Kidman’s masterful turn at Cannes Film Festival is still fresh on everyone’s mind, she continued her fashion crusade at the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City on Monday (June 5).

The actress’ Cannes looks were romantic and whimsical, but her CDFA Fashion Awards style showed us a return to old-school Hollywood glamour.

It was nice to see fashion’s first lady refine her look, but her Oscar de la Renta Fall 2017 gown was let down by poor styling choices.

I would’ve loved Nicole to have taken note from the catwalk styling. A slicked back hairstyle and dramatic drop earrings would have injected some much-needed drama.

Lacklustre hair and uninspired Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Dionne’ sandals did little to bring cohesion to what seemed like a confused ensemble. I can’t wait to see a return to Nicole’s daring Cannes style.

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.
