Breaking Down the looks of the CFDA Fashions Awards I saw a few trends different in style, yet all alike in dignity:
The Romantics: An air of romanticism floated across the carpet with blush tones and frilled fabrics. From Ciara in Roberto Cavalli, Lexi Boling in Ryan Roche, Hillary Rhoda in Monique Lhuillier or Karlie Kloss in Rosie Assoulin – my personal favorite being Taylor Hill in Thakoon.
The Edgy: If romantic gowns were abundant, there was an equal amount of alternative pieces throughout the night. From Elsa Hosk in Naeem Khan to Adriana Lima’s cropped jacket to Sofia Sanchez de Betak in a vintage skirt and revealing chain-like top, these looks inspired fearlessness in us all.
The Quirky: There were also plenty of fashion risk takers out there who wore whimsical prints and quirky accessories, which I loved! Isn’t the whole point of fashion to have fun anyway? Some favorites were Bee Shaffer’s Gucci dress, Lena Dunham’s rabbit pumps and Leandra Medine’s sequined shirt beneath her flowing Phillip Lim gown.
The Red Hots: The carpet wasn’t the only red that appeared at the CFDA awards. Countless ensembles in everyone’s favorite power color demanded attention throughout the night – from Irina Shayk’s Misha Nonoo jumpsuit to Rachel Roy’s one shoulder gown. My favorite was Josephine Skriver’s Sachin & Babi strapless gown that made me want to go back to my first high school dance.
