Red Carpet Fashion: 2012 CFDA Awards (Part 2)

Get caught up on the CFDA award winners and more with part 1 of my red carpet coverage. Been there, done that? Let’s move on.

PhotobucketErin Heatherton in Michael Kors

Gorgeous color. Especially love it paired with the gold accessories.

PhotobucketCrystal Renn in Zac Posen

The girl’s face could break glass if she looked at it right, and with a look like that you could make any dress work. I honestly hate this dress and paired with ankle strap shoes was so not the right choice, but she’s kind of making it work…I mean werk.

Simple yet stunning. However I would have loved to see this with a bright red or berry lip.

PhotobucketJessica Stam in Jason Wu

That hair is TERRIBLE, but I love everything else (the hair really kills it though).

PhotobucketJessica Chastain in Prabal Gurung

One of the rare instances where you’ll see me not gush over Prabal, but this isn’t his fault. You just shouldn’t wear white if you’re this pasty. #sorryimnotsorry

PhotobucketHilary Rhoda in Rebecca Minkoff

Besides the hair (yes I am a stickler for bad hair at these things) I absolutely adore this dress. The colors, the lines, the fit…it’s perfect!

PhotobucketDoutzen Kroes in Sophie Theallet

She looks gorgeous but I feel like there’s a lot of detail in this dress that doesn’t translate to camera. Would love to find a close up of the material.

PhotobucketDakota Fanning in Proenza Schouler

A fanning not in Marc Jacobs, Rodarte or Louis Vuitton? I’m perplexed. Anyway, if the hair wasn’t covering her ears (like how I wore mine in elementary school…I also awkwardly smirked like that), I would give this an A+. But the hair brings it down to a B/B-.

PhotobucketCandice Swanepoel in Valentino, with Brian Atwood

Candice should have worn Jessica Chastain’s Prabal dress. And Brian? Don’t change a thing. You’re gorgeous.

PhotobucketArizona Muse in Diane von Furstenberg

From the neck down it’s a pretty badass look, but I’m going to say it again (sorry if you’re annoyed by now but it’s not my fault these people have bad taste in hair)…the hair is a mess.

PhotobucketAnna Wintour in Marc Jacobs

The queen herself. No words are necessary.

PhotobucketDree Hemingway in Creatures of the Wind

It’s a little quirky but I am so into it. Very excited tgat COTW was there…way to represent Chicago!

PhotobucketHarley Viera Newton in Jen Kao, with the designer

I love the unique neckline of this dress. It gives an “innocent-looking” white dress a little bit of edge. Also digging her clutch. Jen looks like a dominatrix but in the best way possible.

PhotobucketKaren Elson & Tabitha Simmons, both in Proenza Schouler

I adore what Karen is wearing but I cannot get behind a red head in emerald green. Too Christmasy for me. Tabitha looks fierce.

Who had your favorite looks of the night?
