Award shows give celebrities the opportunity to showcase their unique fashion sense and give us something to talk about! Although the best dressed list is always buzzing after the Oscar’s or the Emmy’s, Celebs need to take it to the next level for the CFDA awards. How do you make this list at an award show for the designers that make you look so good? We selected our top looks that did the top fashion designer’s justice.
There is a reason designer’s, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCullough, of Proenza Schouler won Womenswear designer of the year. Miranda Kerr’s short dress was the perfect marriage of complex techniques with its structured cut, unique fabric, and a gorgeous print. Their ability to get all 3 attributes right confirms their flawless skill, and no better way to show it off than on Miranda Kerr.
A beautiful woman in your designs doesn’t hurt, however we do not just love this look for the Victoria Secret model wearing it. Adriana Lima certainly did the Givenchy formal gown justice with her fresh face look and lack of accessories, but International award winner, Ricardo Tisci, made a formal dress that would look stunning on its own. He did not skimp on a single detail in the embroidered tulle and printed paillettes. Only a true, talented designer like Givenchy can have the vision to take a trend and made it seasonless by using as exceptional purple and neutral color palette.
It was hard to choose a winner between our top two favorite celebrity dresses. These looks gave us flashbacks to one of our favorite dresses ever worn by Kate Hudson in How to Lose a Guy in 10 days.
Combine Kerry Washington’s hot color choice with Nicole Richie’s sexy slinky number and you have an iconic look that women everywhere love. Even though we are forever obsessed with that legendary gold dress, we can get used to seeing new, killer looks by CFDA past winners Jason Wu and Marc Jacobs. There is a reason their names are known by every fashionista across the world, they have the ability year after year to design formalwear that sets trends and stands out. Moving away from traditional Chiffon, these designers risked unique fabrics such as metallic and structured satin. Although both dresses have a simplistic virtue they are everything but basic.
Our honorable mentions go to Sofia Vergara and Olivia Palmero in Herve L Leroux and Dennis Basso, respectively. Sofia astonished in an emerald green gown with subtle details that hugged her curvy body perfectly, while Olivia played up the Great Gatsby inspired trend with fringe and gold embroidery.
