Blake Lively In Chanel – 2010 CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

We’ve had many discussions about whether Blake Lively uses a stylist, but so long as the final result is good who really cares?

For me she makes a lot of great choices – excluding her Vivienne Westwood look.

At the 2010 CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Awards last night her Chanel Spring 2011 dress was stunning.

She wore her black knit Chanel dress with maroon Christian Louboutin pigalle pumps.

Trust Blake to find the sexiest dress in the collection.

This is why I love her.

As great as the dress is she didn’t follow my mother’s rule which is, ‘always wear matching underwear’.

Had she matched her underwear she wouldn’t have been wearing a flesh coloured bra which is exposed under the photographers’ flashbulbs.

The crochet and feathered details on the skirt is exquisite.

Leighton Meester In Prabal Gurung – 2010 CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

Leighton Meester always gives us something interesting on the red carpet.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ actress wore a gorgeous custom Prabal Gurung mini dress last night at the 2010 CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Awards.

Her white asymmetrical Swarovski crystal encrusted dress was paired with black Roger Vivier ankle boots.

I normally would frown on this kind of footwear with such a pretty dress, but as the dress is quite edgy they kinda work for me on this occasion.

I would’ve loved a super tight ponytail with the look, but I still really like this look.

Carey Mulligan In Chanel Couture – 2010 CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

Carey Mulligan was one of the many stars to attend the 2010 CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in New York City last night.

She arrived wearing a Chanel Fall 2010 Couture dress.

The chocolate sequin embroidered dress with a tiered bodice was worn with the runway cropped jacket which has a beautiful brooch detail and gold trims.

Whilst the look feels a bit too mature for Carey, I do like it from the ankles up.

Unfortunately she wore the worst pair of shoes I have seen on the red carpet in a long while.

How could she wear those suede muddy brown ankle boots with Chanel?

She completes her look with a Judith Leiber clutch.

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

Jessica Szohr wore the blue print version of this Thakoon Spring 2010 dress to this prestigious event.

I’m glad she picked the darker colour, as I would love to see the lighter print saved for the Spring.

Strappy booties and tamed sleek straight hair complete this look.

What? No ankle boots?

Alexa Chung looks really cute wearing a red Jason Wu Spring 2010 dress with a ruffled neckline.

I love those bold red lips.  It’s very rare that we see her wearing make-up.

Ballet flats complete the look, but I’m also missing the black runway waist belt.

Cassie looked really good on this occasion.

The singer donned an off-the-shoulder black and gold striped Brian Reyes draped dress from the Spring 2010 collection.

The dress was paired with open-toe booties.

Georgina Chapman wore a black Marchesa Fall 2009 dress, which has an intricate embroidered detail all over.

The designer paired her dress with the same Christian Louboutin for Marchesa lace ankle boots as the runway model, plus a black clutch from her Spring 2010 collection.

Coco Rocha looked fierce in wearing this Rodarte Spring 2009 black and white dress on the runway, but Karen Elson softens the look by adding black pumps and bouncy curls.

Many of you hated Nicole Kidman’s last L’Wren Scott dress at the CMA’s.

On this occasion she wore a stunning ivory Lanvin tulle lace gown.

Her boobs aren’t squashed, she not too washed out, the black sash tied to the waist is adorably accented with a white rose.

Love it or hate it?
