every year, the council of fashion designers of america hosts an award ceremony to honor designers who have made notable contributions in the arena of menswear, womenswear and accessories.
this year the winners were:
womenswear: marc jacobs, menswear: rag & bone, accessory designer: alexis bittar, swarovski award menswear: richard chai, swarovski award womenswear: jason wu, beene lifetime award: micheal kors, special tribute: alexandar mcqueen
you would think that fashion awards would be the perfect breeding ground for memorable couture moments, but that is not the case my pretties. i had to search far and wide to find 5 outfits which were mentionable.
i know a lot of people consider gwenie to be a pretentious brit/lifestyle guru wannabe, but i don’t mind her. mostly because when she looks good, she looks GOOD.
gwen is wearing a sequined black micheal kors gown. the thing fits her like a glove. love the pulled back hair too.
sjp wears a beautiful floor-length printed gown by the late alexander mcqueen’s 2009 pre-fall collection. sjp has been wearing mcqueen nonstop in the past couple of weeks as an homage to mcqueen, who was not only her favorite designer but a close friend. she also presented the tribute award in his honour.
the color looks perfect on sjp. i love the bouffant hair too, good to see her changing things up.
