I was going to blog about fashion at the MTV Movies Award, but since I fancied none of the outfits there and the CFDA happened, obviously the CFDA was way more fashion-worthy to blog about. It's a bit iffy that both Oscar de la Renta and Preonza Schouler tied for the Designer of the Year Award, but oh well.
First off, two of this year's hostesses were Mary Kate and Ashley. The two brilliant businesswomen are wearing clothes by their own brands -Ash was wearing a long black jacket by The Row and MK was in a cream dress by Elizabeth and James (their new brand which I'm really looking foward to.) I'm not too sure about Ash's outfit, but I really MK's dress and her accessorising (many many braclets, rings and an oversized Miu Miu clutch).
Anna Wintour and Bee Schaffer both in black and white -both very pretty and classic.
Uma Thurman in Zac Posen. It's a nice dress, but not really my style. Diane von Furstenburg in her own very summery dress -it's so fabulous how her dresses are so colourful yet still so age-suitable.
Claire Danes in Peter Som -seriously pretty and really suits her.
Alicia Keyes in a boring dress and Chloe Sevigny in a Holly Dunlap dress. I don't like both of these dresses -one is boring and one is unflattering.
Eve Mendes in a hot pink Calvin Klein dress -modern, sleek and eye-catching. Kate Bosworth looking pretty (as usual) in Proenza Schouler. I thought the dress looked too mature and conservative for her at first, but then I thought it's lady-like with some pretty details -a very thin line indeed!
Lily Cole in a Valentino dress, which looked less lady-like and prim than the typical Valentino dress. It's very clubbing and party-ish (although is is really suitable for this event?) Hilary Rhoda in Marchesa -it's a really gorgeous and flowy dress, but nothing unexpected by Marchesa.
Michael Kors and his girls, Debra Messing and Heidi Klum. Heidi looks over-tanned and the dresses are just not particularly exciting.
Ralph Lauren with Oprah. The dress just looks like the ones Oprah always wears.
Zac Posen with Karen Elson (-she's pregnant and still looks amazing in one of those tight, long dresses!) Phillip Lim with Irina in his design. Irina's dress (and her look in general) is definitely one of my favourite from this event. It's so elegant, pretty and girly. I love the clothes by 3.1 Phillip Lim. He totally deserves the Swarovski Award for Womenswear imo.
