CFDA Fashion Awards 2011

The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Fashion Awards took place in NYC last night, with Prabal Gurung receiving the Best New Designer of the year recognition.

Naturally, the celebs went with American designers for the event and most of them seemed to prefer short cocktail dresses instead of full-length gowns which is more appropriate seeing the warm weather.

Kerry Washington & Naomi Watts both wore Calvin Klein.

Kerry wore a white shift dress with a textured bottom while Naomi went with a lamé gold dress (which needed some sort of belt in my opinion). Keeping with the aesthetics of the label, both kept their looks very minimal.

Alessandra Ambrosio wore a vermillion gown by Prabal Gurung, with matching lips and a bold statement neck cuff. It's a bold look for sure but I think she could have passed on the red lips in this instance.

Model Chanel Iman wore a billowy aqua creation, with gold sandals. I think the dress swamps her slim figure and the hair is a little too messy, not the perfect bed head.

Liv Tyler chose a colourful, belted Proenza Schouler number but the shoes and purse ruined the look.

Chloe Sevigny wore a leather top and lacey white skirt from her own line, Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony but again, those chunky heels let down her look (not that it was brilliant to begin with, mind you).

Both Miranda Kerr & Ashley Greene donned Michael Kors dresses for the night.

Miranda wore a cutout black, leg-baring gown, with gold cuffs on both wrists; she looked statuesque like always.

While Ashley Greene went with a neon pink
and black mini, but those strappy heels make her feet look unecessarily chunky.

A radiant Jessica Alba wore a two-tone maxi dress by Diane von Furstenberg with gold hoop earrings. I think the slicked back hair style is a little severe but other than that, this look is spot on from the pregnant actress.

Lucy Liu's feathery Monique Lhuillier gown was my least favourite ensemble of the night; it felt uninspired, dated and out of place. And surely she must be boiling under all that material!

After a run with frothy Chanel creations on the red carpet, Kirsten Dunst wore a tux by designer Patrick Ervell with hoop earrings and red lips. I think Kirsten just about pulls it off.

The Olsen twins turned up in their usual attire of mix and match separates.

Mary-Kate wore a skirt by her own label, The Row and topped it with a metallic Chanel jacket. She carried a bag from her new line.

Ashley went with a pale blue dress from The Row and finished the look off with satin yellow Manholo Blahniks and an apricot coloured purse, similar to sister Mary-Kate's.
