Every year in New York City, one of fashion’s four capitals, the Council of Fashion Designers of America hosts their annual award ceremony. Held at the Lincoln Center, the most oustanding designers are nominated previously and the winner is announced on the day of the gala. To us fashion people, this ceremony is the Oscars of fashion, as many like to call it. We not only get to see famous people strut the carpet,but instead of a movie, we can see our favorite designers recieve their awards.

This ladies are used to stealing the spotlight with their beauties (if not ask the thousands of men that wait for that time of the year, when the VS angels put their wings on for the infamous fashion show). But this time, not only their looks stole the show, but also their goregous outfits. Three of my best dressed gals include Miranda Kerr, head-to -toe in a Michael Kors number, fresh from his Resort 2012 collection. Funny how Mr. Kors was insipred by an Australian holiday for this collection, and Miranda is an aussie herself. The we have Alessandra Ambrosio, the brazilian amazon sported a red and very dramatic gown from genius designer, Prabal Gurung. And then, beacuse you can never go wrong with Marchesa, Hana soukupova, a vision in ivory.
OH NO, YOU DIDN’T
There were some less fortunate celebs, who definitely (and in my personal opinion) were not able to nail the look. First Emmanuelle Chriqui in a yellow cocktail dress, WITH A TAIL! And with those jewel sandals and that clutch, I don’t know if she look like the guest of a tacky wedding or a drug lord’s date. Joy Bryant and Rachel Roy, talk about bad pairing. The dresses alone are bad, but standing together it makes things even worse. One looks like she just got out of a Motel 6 and the other one shortened her quinceañera dress only to sport those killer legs in some shoes that don’t even make sense with the whole outfit. And then we have Kelly Bensimon. I’m gonna let the peeking underweartalk fo itself.
To DVF, for always looking so damn hot. To the Olsen twins, a match made in heaven, fashion heaven. To Gerard Butler, the hottie of the evening and to Georgina Chapman, for being her fabulous self.
AND THE THERE WAS GAGA
I don’t consider myself a fan.But this time I have to admit that the Lady deserved the award. She looked regal in her black gothic gown. She pulled off the green hair and the dramatic makeup. Everything about her was perfect, everything was so Gaga. And then she had to go and do this… That I do not approve.
Check back tomorrow for a big, big post I have been working on.
