I’m still a little confused as to why some of these celebrities attend this event. If you’re going to attend the awards ceremony for the Council of FASHION Designers of America, I’d hope you have some sense of fashion.
Anyway, I hope you’re all caught up with part 1 of my CFDA red carpet commentary, and now let’s move on to part 2…
Katie Cassidy in Behnaz Sarafpour
Just because you’re on the most fashionable show on TV (even though you played a crazy bitch), doesn’t mean you should be attending fashion events. This is exhibit A.
Karlie Kloss in Jason Wu (pictured with the designer)
I’m not a fan of red dresses and I’m less of a fan when paired with black accessories but for some reason I am loving this look. Maybe because Karlie is one of the raddest models out there. Maybe it’s because it’s a gorgeous Jason Wu gown. Most likely a combination of both.
Joy Bryant in Rachel Roy (pictured with the designer)
I think Joy Bryant is great and Rachel Roy is a beautiful person inside and out, which is why I feel terrible saying this…but I’m just hating everything. The dress is too tight and too short, there is too much black, and hair half up/half down rarely works for anybody.
Jessica Alba in Diane von Furstenberg
I absolutely love this color combo. These hues look perfect with Jessica’s glowing skin. This dress would look great on any girl…pregnant or not!
Emmanuelle Chriqui in David Meister
When bad dresses (and terrible styling) happen to pretty people.
Doutzen Kroes in J. Mendel
Too many elements I personally don’t like…red dress, black shoes, and one shoulder (a LONG SLEEVE one shoulder). She looks gorgeous though…and I do love the shoes (just not with the dress).
Chloe Sevigny in her own design for Opening Ceremony
Why does she look like she’s casting a spell on me here? Anyway, there are way too many design elements going on–ruffle, eyelet lace, plunging neckline, etc. And especially paired with those shoes…it’s just too much!
Ashley Greene in Michael Kors
Love the dress. I kind of like it on her. The poor styling is what kills it. The shoes are awful and the hair looks like a high school girl went crazy with a flat iron.
Amber Heard in Cynthia Rowley
When I initially look at this I think the main color of the dress washes her out. But the more I stare, the detailing really sticks out and brings some life to the dress. I love the unconventional shoe pairing and the belt is a nice touch.
Alessandra Ambrosio in Prabal Gurung
This is such a gorgeous dress but that enormous necklace is ruining it. Prabal is such a talented designer and Alessandra is so beautiful, but that damn necklace…it’s just unfortunate.
**Update: So I browsed through more photos of of Alessandra in this dress and I have officially changed my mind. I LOVE this look. When I saw shots at different angles (see these photos) I immediately fell in love. The necklace no longer bothers me…one of my favorite looks from the night!
