Red Carpet Fashion: 2014 Golden Globes (Part 3)

We’ve had some major hits so far on this Golden Globes red carpet. Like Lizzy Caplan in Pucci and Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren to name a few. As well as some disasters like Julia Roberts (you can’t really beat that for worst dressed). And now onto the final installment of this year’s Golden Globes red carpet, including my third and last best dressed pick for the evening.

Red Carpet Fashion: 2014 Golden Globes

The red carpet may have gotten a little damp, Jennifer Lawrence almost lost one of her many borrowed pieces of jewelry, and if you don’t know the name Lupita Nyong’o you’re going to know it now. The 2014 Golden Globes happened last night and if you missed it, you’re not going to find out who won here on CCF but if you want to know who wore what then you’ve come to the right place.

Let’s do this.

CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Winner

One fashion program I hope never goes away is the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. Every year since 2004, they give a grant and mentorship to one promising designer after an extensive round of interviews, presentations, etc. (fun fact: Proenza Schouler’s Lazaro Hernandez and and Jack McCollough were the first ever winners). Last night was the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund dinner where this year’s winner was announced…

Lessons From New York Fashion Week

Although I decided to skip out this year, it doesn’t mean that we can’t still discuss everyone’s 4 favorite words, New York Fashion Week. With the Spring 2014 collections in full swing, it will make you forget that you haven’t even gotten to wear your Fall clothes yet. Because we’re only about half way through NYFW, I thought it was time to discuss some noteworthy looks from SS14…so far (and the lessons you can learn from them).

Throwback Thursday: Prabal Gurung

This year, I’ve introduced two new categories to ChiCityFashion (What Why Where and Chi City’s Most Stylish) and because we’re well more than half way through 2013, I thought another new topic was in order. Nothing feels better than reminiscing and feeling a bit nostalgic, right? I’ll leave it to Buzzfeed to give me lists of things I miss about the 90s so I’m going to do something a little different. Today will be my first installment of a new feature — Throwback Thursday (not to be confused with #tbt on Instagram). I’m going to start with past collections from designers and who knows what will stem from that. And because I thought my first TBT would be way too predictable if I chose Proenza, today is all about Prabal Gurung.
