Evan Rachel Wood In Tome – CFDA/Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Evan Rachel Wood In Tome - CFDAVogue 2013 Fashion Fund FinalistsEvan Rachel Wood was also among the fashion pack at the CFDA and Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists celebration, hosted yesterday evening at Spring Studios in New York City.

The ’10 Things I Hate About Life’ actress was, perhaps surprisingly, wearing a colour other than black, which served her well. She struck a sophisticated pose in a red, plunge-front column gown by Tome.

Adding more visual interest to the simple dress, she accessorized with a Rona Pfeiffer bracelet and Neil Lane earrings. A crimson lip and a swept-back ‘do completed the elegant entrance.

Do you think Rachel is so far making a radiant return to the red carpet?

Allison Williams In Misha Nonoo – CFDA/Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

While Lena Dunham was at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, her ‘Girls’ co-star Allison Williams was across town at Spring Studios in New York City attending the CFDA and Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists celebration.

Wearing what’s swiftly becoming the hottest red carpet Louboutin shoe after the ‘So Kate’ pump, the actress added some dazzle to her look via her ‘Artifice’ pumps, which we recently saw on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Wearing her much-fussed-about hair slicked back into a bun and a bold red lip colour to embolden her look, she donned a Misha Nonoo white cotton oversized blouse with silk-organza panels and a box-pleat back detail from the Spring 2014 collection with a black silk-faille dirndl skirt with a sheer organza panel detail from the Fall 2013 collection.

While the look may be considered too plain on a red carpet full of dressy looks, the sheer panels, lip colour and shoes keep me very interested.

Vanessa Hudgens In Thakoon – CFDA/Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Vanessa Hudgens In Thakoon - CFDAVogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Vanessa Hudgens attended the CFDA and Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists celebration held at Spring Studios in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress wore a sleeveless, white Thakoon Resort 2014 dress with Tabitha Simmons ‘Fitzgerald’ sandals and Irene Neuwirth jewels.

While this is a lovely dress, and the peek-a-boo stairstep paneling on the sides is quite intriguing, it just doesn’t leave me with the ‘wow’ I would have liked.

I love that Vanessa has been taking a break from her usual boho styling recently, but the beehive updo and red lip just make this look seem too mature.

Perhaps a long, sleek ponytail would have given this the extra attitude I’m wishing for.

What do you think–do you love Vanessa’s sophisticated turn, or are you missing her typical edge?

Taylor Schilling In Thakoon – CFDA/Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Taylor Schilling attended the CFDA and Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists celebration held at Spring Studios in New York City yesterday evening.

Like fellow guest Christina Ricci, the ‘Orange Is the New Black’ actress wore a Thakoon design for the occasion.

Her head-to-toe Spring 2014 look consisted of a black camisole top, complete with a sheer lace inset across the front, navy blue trousers, pearl-strap clutch bag, and embellished peep-toe shoes. While this outfit doesn’t strike me as the most exciting combination, it doesn’t quite do it for me as a chic tailored-trouser look either. Although, I have a feeling many of you might disagree.

To finish, Taylor accessorized with little more than a dramatic smoky eye and slicked-back hair.

Christina Ricci attended the CFDA and Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists celebration held at Spring Studios in New York City yesterday evening.

The actress wore a strapless Thakoon Spring 2014 cocktail dress, which featured exaggerated pleating, subtle lace insets, and a crystal chain connecting from front to back.

She concluded her look with a trio of black accents — black tights, pumps, and a textured clutch — and kept the hair and makeup quite subdued.

Does Christina’s take on cocktail dressing work for you?

Anna Wintour In Marc Jacobs – CFDA/Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Anna Wintour In Marc Jacobs - CFDA Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Anna Wintour and CFDA CEO Steven Kolb attended the CFDA and Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists celebration held at Spring Studios in New York City yesterday evening.

The editor-in-chief of American Vogue gave us both a different style of dress, which was not by her usual choice of designer, and a new pair of shoes.

Let’s start with the dress. She donned a tri-colour Marc Jacobs Spring print dress featuring black embroidery down the sides and black short sleeves.

Usually a dress is modified to fit her above-the-knee sheath-dress standard, but she appears to have snagged this off the runway as is.

Next we have to marvel at the shoes. Last time out she opted for a different pair of kitten heels to her beloved Manolo Blahniks. Here we are seeing a black strappy pair which perfectly complements her look.

Is Anna switching up her look? Only time will tell.

Changing her style of dress and shoes is one thing; however, you will need to pick me off the floor if she ever changes that hair style.

Ciara In Calvin Klein Collection – CFDA/Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Ciara In Calvin Klein Collection - CFDA Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Ciara attended the CFDA and Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists celebration held at Spring Studios in New York City yesterday evening.

As always, she has a knack of making everything she wears look uber cool.

She wore a Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2014 look consisting of a Unique vest featuring a high round neck and asymmetric folded peplum waist, with a collarless jacket slung over her shoulders.
I will have to dock her several cool points, however, for the trousers. As a fellow tall gal like Ciara, it is always a delight (relief) to find long trousers, but in this case they are way too long.

Not only are her cargo-style construction trousers with exaggerated cuffs dragging on the floor, they are also creating unsightly folds on the trouser leg.

Jennifer Fisher jewelry completed her look.

Julianne Moore In Tom Ford – CFDA/Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Julianne Moore In Tom Ford - CFDA And Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists

Julianne Moore attended the CFDA and Vogue 2013 Fashion Fund Finalists celebration held at Spring Studios in New York City yesterday evening.

On paper perhaps the Moore/Ford relationship shouldn’t work, but once again she knocked it out of the fashion ballpark with this Tom Ford Spring 2014 bedazzled red embellished number with a high neckline, long sleeves and black trims.

Tom always manages to bring Julianne out of her comfort zone and push her fashion boundaries.

I would never have considered this frock for the red-haired actress, but she surprised me by carrying the look off with ease, with the bondage shoes adding yet more sexy appeal.
