Lincoln Center’s 2010 CFDA Fashion Awards are usually a sight for sore eyes of the fashion-obsessed. This year’s event, though brought out some major star power, did not necessarily impress in the style department. Perhaps it’s just me, but a lot of the dresses were “been there worn that”, and majorly lacked the “wow” factor.
But among the bad and the boring, there were a few ladies (and gents) that looked both interesting and stylish.
SJP attended wearing Alexander McQueen. The actress honored the late McQueen with a speech and runway show, so the dress was both an appropriate and a touching gesture.
Two couples (well, Devon and Zac aren’t a couple-couple, but they did walk the carpet together), two gowns, great effort by both. Have been in love with Devon Aoki for the longest time, and I absolutely adore her Posen gown, her man-candy (Zac Posen as an accessory, anyone?), and her makeup. As for Iman, I don’t necessarily love this Giambattista Valli dress – but it’s Iman…and David Bowie is her husband and date. And she snagged the “Fashion Icon” award. Enough said.
This being Fashion Awards, there was no shortage of supermodels in attendance. My personal favorites were Irina Lazareanu in Philip Lim, fellow Canadian Jessica Stam in Yigal Azrouel, and Michael Kors’ favorite Carmen Kass showing off her sexy back.
The two outfits that definitely elicited emotion, were worn by Dree Hemingway (yes, that Hemingway), and Jessica Biel. I don’t know if it’s Dree’s hair accessory, but I am a bit undecided about her CFDA getup…perhaps she should’ve pressed her suit better, before wearing it? As for Biel, I think the fact that I don’t particularly like her as an actress (or her fashion history), is clouding my judgement. I do, in fact, like this citrus-colored DVF dress, and can imagine someone like Nicole Richie rocking it without much criticism…so I think I’ll give this one thumbs-up for effort. Though I still think she’s a crappy actress (Easy Virtue made me want to stab both my eardrums and my eyes out).
So what did you think about 2010 CFDAs? Was your favorite not listed? Let me know in the comments!
