8th Annual CFDA Vogue Fashion Awards

In the fashion organization’s 8th year, The CFDA Vogue Fashion Awards was presented Monday night at the Skylight Soho in New York City. The lucky recipient of the generous $300,000 fund and business mentor was none other than Joseph Altuzarra. The designer who runs in circles with the likes of Alexander Wang is known for his cool downtown aesthetic. Altuzarra found himself up against the designers of Cushnie et Ochs, Carlie Cushnie and Michelle Ochs, jewelry designer Pamela Love, and Shane Gabier and Chris Peters of Creatures of the Wind. Aside from the huge announcement the highlight of the evening was the red carpet or in this case, green shrubbery arrivals. Designers, actresses, models and socialites posed in their finest alongside an earthy green background.

Lala Anthony arrived in a bright aqua blue Zac Posen dress that seemed to hug her every curve. I love how she accessorized with purple strappy heels and a fun clutch.

Amanda Seyfried showed up in a feathery white frock by Prabal Gurung.

Olivia Wilde supported the ladies of Cushnie et Ochs wearing a fun black dress with interesting peek-a-boo detailing.

Always one to go against the grain, Rachel Roy was dramatic as ever wearing a snow white fur vest and a long black skirt.

I loved Joan Smalls’ entire look including the makeup. She really went for it in Altuzarra.

I love Zoe Kravitz in this leather Alexander Wang dress. I guess the pointy toe is making a comeback.

Coco Rocha got her Carmen Sandiego on in this grey floral dress and floppy hat.

Liya Kibede shut it down in this head to toe shocking yellow look by Cushnie et Ochs.

Oh Melanie Fiona, You Slay Me In Proenza Schouler

*Insert Loud Applause*

Every now and again you have to adjust your radar to see what else is out there. Canadian songtress, Melanie Fiona was absolutely divine on the Black Girls Rock 2011 red carpet wearing Proenza Schouler. This was such a bold choice and it paid off. Just the other day I was browsing SSENSE and I came across the skirt version of this dress and I just died. The cool toned blues, pinks and greens work so well with her warm complexion.

Being the style stalker that I am, I had to find more pictures of Melanie serving it up. So far, I peg her style as Glam Rock –a mix of mild edge with modern sophistication.

What do you think of Melanie’s style?

Top 10 Best Dressed At The 2011 Emmy Awards

What an awkward red carpet with a lot of red dresses. Where there was no red, stars chanced white gowns, and a few trickled in wearing navy and electric blue.  I wasn’t blown away at all, but I guess is still worth posting. Did someone send out a memo to all of Hollywood with strict instructions to come as a symbol on the American flag? *Looks at calendar and checks to see if it is the 4th of July*

The Emmy red carpet could have been better, but there were still a few who shined.

1. Christina Hendricks

2. Julia Stiles 

3. Lea Michele 

4. Dianna Agron 

5. Nina Dobrev

6. Katie Holmes 

7. Kerry Washington

8. Claire Danes 

9. Heidi Klum

10. Sophia Vergara

I think Sophia Vergara absolutely killed the competition. Who was your favorite of the night?  For more red carpet style click here

ESPY Awards 2011 Red Carpet Hit or Miss?

In the summer time I tend to lose track of when awards shows air on TV. Last night the 2011 ESPY Awards was a prime example. It seemed liked everyone tuned into to see if there would be any updates regarding the lockouts to no avail. Oh well. I didn’t get to watch it live, but I was pleased to learn that a few of my stylish favs including Kerry Washington and Maria Sharapova attended the awards show. Most of the looks were just right for the occasion and others I had to give the “Girl What Are You Doing” face. All in all, ’twas a pretty stylish red carpet.

Kerry, Kerry, Kerry, you slay me! You shut it down girl! Just about all the men I follow on Twitter went completely nuts when she walked the carpet. According to her tweets she was dressed by Jenny Packhman. The dress was so complimentary to her mega watt smile. Best Dressed as usual!

It goes without saying that Maria Sharapova knows her stuff when it comes to style. This dress worked so well with her athletic and statuesque figure. She knows how to look sexy and work her body without selling too much unlike another tennis star we know.

Serena Williams. Pretty woman, Walking down the street……I don’t want to be a hater. Serena is “the body” in Hollywood. I just think this Rachel Roy suit is so wrong. The pushed-up boobs, the shortness of the skirt, and the fact that it was way too tight was all too much. I get the statement she wanted to make, but exposing one asset at a time was all that was necessary to do the trick. Moving right along.

Emmanuelle Chriqui was entirely too cute on the red carpet. I loved her Herve Leger. The dress was perfect for her. She worked it.

Brooklyn Decker KILLED IT. I loved her spiked gold Louboutins paired with this red dress.

Style ID: Jennifer Lopez And Olivia Wilde Wear Emilio Pucci Fall 2011

Did your heart not drop when Jennifer Lopez sauntered across the BAFTA red carpet in this ab-baring Emilio Pucci gown? J-Lo is a certified poster girl for making life in the 40s look fab. I love how she always adds an element of surprise on the red carpet. Not to be out done, Olivia Wilde gives her Pucci rendition some edge and attitude while soaking up the sun on a New York City roof top for the pages of Marie Claire US August 2011. Of course the lovely Joan Smalls did the gown justice when she debuted it at the Fall 2011 runway show. It’s only fair to ask, who rocked it best?
