Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Greatly missed on the red carpet for last month’s Met Gala, Zoe Saldana returned to the world of high fashion, attending the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City last night.

Walking the red carpet alongside Prabal Gurung (in custom Antonio Azzuolo), Zoe showed off her slender figure in a slinky black gown with sheer panels from the designer’s Fall 2012 collection.

Zoe has the honour of being the first star to appear in this particular gown, and now that I’ve seen her, I cannot imagine anyone else doing it such justice.

The actress wisely chose to remove the shiny leather belt from the runway version, providing a sleeker, more romantic look.

Cartier jewels, slicked-back hair and smoky eye makeup are the perfect accents to this moody ensemble.

Zoe was the first celebrity to ever wear a Prabal Gurung dress and they continue to work so well together.

Following an unfortunate showing at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night, Julianne Hough quickly bounced back at the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held in New York City on Monday night.

Julianne looked stunning wearing a Kaufmanfranco Chinese red stretch-crepe gown.

Flashing some skin in a plunging neckline, the petite actress manages to look both sweet and slightly sexy – just the right fit for her bubbly persona.

I’m glad that Julianne ignored the urge to add a sparkly necklace to her bare collarbone – diamond earrings and a gold box clutch to match the metallic belt buckle are just the right amount of bling.

A purposely messy updo and smoky eyes complete the look.

Leandra Medine and Hilary Rhoda attended the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards, held in New York City on Monday evening, alongside designer Rebecca Minkoff.

The trio looked perfectly coordinated as they walked the red carpet wearing complementary blue dresses from the designer’s eponymous line.

The ‘Man Repeller’ blogger, who has previously walked in the designer’s runway shows, wore a vibrant cobalt dress with pink and green accents.

Never one to shy away from some edgy styling, Leandra tops off the dress with a silver-and-white moto vest. Strappy yellow Rebecca Minkoff sandals, a Rebecca Minkoff box clutch and fair share of jewelry accessorize the look.

Rebecca herself chose a casual watercolour print dress from her Resort 2013 collection, paired with a bright yellow Rebecca Minkoff clutch and strappy Rebecca Minkoff sandals.

Hilary opted for a more formal look, wearing a navy, azure and sky-blue colour-blocked Rebecca Minkoff gown with a thigh-high split and cut-outs under the bust.

The model accessorized with simple Rebecca Minkoff sandals and a white Rebecca Minkoff box clutch.

With matching centre-parted, tousled brunette locks, these ladies could easily be sisters – or have the same hairstylist, at least.

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.

Here is a look at some of the other 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards attendees.

Shenae Grimes: The “90210″ actress opted for a Rebecca Taylor bustier with black pants. I don’t like this look because of the bricks she has on her feet.

Whitney Port: The beautiful young designer opted to wear a look by other designer. Her Pamella Roland one shoulder ivory pleated gown is sensational. I love the spiral beading and organza floral appliqués.

Emmanuelle Chriqui: The beautiful “Entourage” star was in my Top 10. She looked stunning wearing a vibrant yellow David Meister with a chiffon train. Kudos to her stylist for picking those amazing purple Manolo Blahnik Kioko sandals with rhinestone embellishments. They are such a perfect way to top off this gorgeous look.
