2010 CFDA Awards Red Carpet Shenanigans

The 28th Annual CFDA awards were last night, and I guess if you want to know I'll tell you that Marc Jacobs won for womenswear, Rag & Bone for menswear and Alexis Bittar for accessories and in the Swarovski Awards category Jason Wu won for womenswear, Richard Chai for menswear and Alexander Wang for accessories. I kinda wanted Patrik Ervell to win the Swarovski menswear award, but you know, whatevz. They also doled out some kind of "popular vote" award that Ralph Lauren won, but I honestly have no idea what the award even MEANS, so there's that.

Now that we've got that out of the way, let's get to the fun part, what the people wore to the fancy shindig.

Best Gals:
Vogue's Fashion Director Tonne Goodman received the Eleanor Lambert award, which is given for a "unique contribution to the world of fashion", traded in her signature black turtleneck and white pants for an equally classic ensemble of a black button-down tucked into a beautiful liquid-sequined siren skirt. The woman is just SO chic.

Stella Tennant looks incredibly amazonian in a beautifully modern gown by Reed Krakoff. I love the slight bondage undertones, especially in the bodice.

Jamie Bochert secures the 3rd spot in the list by continuing the tradition of the best dressed ladies at the Met Gala in a fancy long sleeve, knee-length shift dress from Marc Jacobs.
Brewing trend alert!

Random notes from the peanut gallery:
And in case you don't believe the long sleeve thing is real, here's Paz de la Huerta wearing a white Yigal Azruel gown that's not unlike the one Diane Kruger wore at the Met, except this one has some black contrast detail at the shoulders. Rachel Zoe's long sleeve experiment ended up a but more Tina Turner Tranny than refined-modern, but there ain't nothing wrong with a Tina Turner Tranny and as such, we salute her.

Ashley and Mary-Kate kept it spooky in The Row accompanied by not-of-this-world Sasha Pivovarova. Maxi-skirts are an essential part of my summer situations, especially in hippie-goth vibes. And speaking of hippie vibes, T's new editor-in-chief Sally Singer and Teen Vogue's Amy Astley look like they're about to participate in a hippie lesbian wedding, but I'm not sure if they're officiating it or what. Singer's long tunic and palazzo pants take me to a place in my childhood that I just don't know if I want to revisit BUT sowhatwhocares? I love her.

Save the best for last:
We end with a picture of Iris Apfel in Balenciaga.
If that doesn't cheer up you day, I don't know what will.

Congrats to all the winners!

I love Rachel Zoe's look- although you're right. Not terribly modern.

that picture of Iris is just so magical. I want to be her when I'm an old lady. Her, and Lynn Yaeger.

The dresses that Stella Tennant and Jamie Bochert are wearing proves to me that the 90's are back!!
