Every year, I get crazy excited for the CFDA Awards because it’s sort of like the Met Ball’s more casual little sister — everyone is fashion is there and the looks are anything but boring (unlike the Oscars). Now the CFDA is really only about American designers / American fashion (it does stand for Council of Fashion Designers of AMERICA, after all), so what about the rest of the world? You know my obsession with British designers (and and accents) so let’s celebrate the British Fashion Awards that occurred just yesterday by judging the red carpet.
Last night, fashion’s finest celebrated the 11th annual CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, where the winners of this year’s prizes were announced (with the grand prize being $300k to be used towards the winning designer’s business…not too shabby). And although it’s important to know who was the lucky recipient of this prize, we also need to know who wore what, as I haven’t done a red carpet post in a while and I think I’m overdue for one. Don’t you?
Two red carpet posts two days in a row? Thank you VMAs and Labor Day for forcing the Emmys on us a little early…and on a Monday. Last night was TV’s biggest night (AKA the Emmys). It’s not necessarily fashion’s biggest night but there were actually pretty decent looks this year. Even I’m sort of impressed. But enough of this intro, let’s see who wore what to the 2014 Emmys.
