Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Padma Lakshmi attended the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City last night.

The TV host was seated directly opposite me during the Naeem Khan Fall 2012 presentation, so I’m not surprised she snapped up this stunning gown.

I also had my eye on this navy-and-black abstract-beaded georgette trumpet gown with a jet fringe beaded bodice, but it was on my wish list for Emily Blunt.

Padma more than does justice to this gown, so the sighting of it on the red carpet fills me with joy.

A braided updo and barely-there makeup provided the finishing touches.

Solange Knowles was a burst of bright colour on the red carpet at the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City yesterday evening.

Not one to shy away from a bold hue, Solange stood out in a white-and-yellow Marni Spring 2012 dress.

From a distance, the v-neck shift looks like a classic tweed, but the patterned dress is actually created by large paillettes.

Adding a funky touch, Solange accessorizes with a bold patterned Marni clutch and knit Missoni sandals with clear straps and a cylindrical heel.

Her signature fro and bronzed makeup complete the look.

Jessica Pare was one of the presenters at the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City yesterday evening.

The ‘Mad Men’ actress wore a Jason Wu Fall 2012 dress.

This is the first time I am seeing Jessica outside of the 60s attire worn on the hit TV show, but I love this modern look.

She teamed a black silk devore velvet shirt paired with a hot-pink skirt embroidered with Swarovski Elements and velvet inserts.

Her black Jason Wu black velvet “Lily” pump work with the formal feel of this look.

I would’ve loved her to have opted for a pretty pink lip colour, but she opted to go bare.

Black tassel Tiffany & Co earrings and side-swept updo completed her look.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen took home the ‘Womenswear Designer of the Year’ award for their line, The Row, at the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at the Alice Tully Hall in New York City yesterday evening.

I almost fell off my chair when I found individual pictures of the sisters.

As walking spokesmodels for their winning brand, both designers looked gorgeous wearing looks from The Row Resort 2013 collection.

Debuting a brunette look, Mary-Kate went for a darker look, wearing a long-sleeved black silk dress with a high-low hem.

The dress was accessorized with a statement Sidney Garber necklace and Louis Vuitton black suede peep-toes, plus a black The Row purse.

Ashley wore a rarely seen burst of colour, standing out in a violet silk dress with a simple ruffle running down the front.

Like her sister, Ashley accessorized with a black The Row bag, Sidney Garber cuff bracelets and Manolo Blahnik heels.

A slick, centre-parted bun completes the look.

Jessica Chastain attended the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City on Monday evening, where she handed out the award for Womenswear Designer of the Year.

The actress wore an ethereal white Prabal Gurung Resort 2013 dress.

With a voluminous skirt and sheer metallic overlay, this gold-beaded dress becomes overly girly.

The modest, knee-length dress would have been better suited for a younger star, like Elle Fanning, Hailee Steinfeld or Kiernan Shipka.

Harry Winston jewels and gold Nicholas Kirkwood for Prabal Gurung quadruple strap pumps completed her clutch-free look.
