The CFDA Awards recognise exceptional talent within the fashion industry and this year the nominees were all outstanding within their respective field.
Typically, designers arrive to the awards ceremony with a muse dressed to impress in something from the Designer’s current collection and competition on this years CFDA Awards red carpet was fierce. from Anna Ewers in an Alexander Wang pailette dress with stomp boots, Amanda Seyfried in glittering Rodarte, right through to Janelle Monae in a stunning Tadashi Shoji cape dress, the red carpet was awash with knockout frocks.
There were a variety of presenters including Kim Kardashian and Taraji P. Henson giving out the awards, all eyes were on Kim Kardashian in Proenza Schouler as she hit the event within hours of announcing her second pregnancy, and the unveiling of the Caitlyn Jenner Vanity Fair cover.
Karlie Kloss never gives less than fantastic on the red carpet and this event was no different, wearing a DVF floor length Spanish inspired polka dot frock cut low at the front, the model looked phenomenal and confessed that under her gown, she wore flat shoes all night and felt great.
Models of the moment Natasha Poly and Gigi Hadid lit up the red carpet in Michael Kors; Poly in a statement red dress and Hadid in a glittering gold flared leg jumpsuit.
Juliette Lewis looked ethereal as she floated on to the red carped wearing a two piece Christian Siriano princess gown. I have to admit, I had an audible gasp when I saw this gorgeous gown.
My ultimate favourite of the night was Diane Kruger, we all know the girl got immense fashion game and in a Prabal Gurung red garnet bustier gown, she was On Fleek. As a wildcard runner up, I’m giving special credit to model Binx Walton for her conceptual Hood By Air creation, incidentally, Shayne Oliver of Hood By Air took home the award for Swarovski Award for Menswear.
“I am so glad to know there is life after winning a lifetime achievement award” Tom Ford on being named the CFDA Menswear Designer of the year 2015.
