Before I show you the red carpet looks, let's talk about CFDA Awards happenings that I missed before. One of the things is the Special Tribute Award for McQueen. Told you that but did you know during the award, the Fall/Winter 2010 collection was showcased for more to see. As most of you might know, the collection was only shown to a handful of editors in a private event and all we could see is photos of it. But during the awards, guests and VIPs were graced with the collection as a tribute to the late McQueen.
Also, have you heard of the Kors story. So during the award for Michael Kors, Anna Wintour, e-i-c of Vogue/presenter of the award told us stories of Kors that we had never heard of. One of the big ones (now talked all over the net) was how Michael avoided a certain designer on a beach, just to aviod being seen in swimming trunks. Hmm...
Now back to the red carpet, Anna Wintour graced us with a Carolina Herrera dress with leaf prints on. Simple, chic and so much less extravagant that her dress for MET. Sarah Jessica Parker came in a butterfly inspired print McQueen evening dress chosen exclusively for her by Sarah Burton, the new creative head.
Young star, Dakota Fanning came in a beautiful Marchesa cocktail princess dress and Brian Atwood black open toe pumps. Vanessa Traina accompanied by Altuzarra, came in a fabulous dress altered and remade by Altuzarra from his recent collection. The final look was so much better than the one I saw on Style.com where they shown the fitting session.
More styles of guests as follows:
Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang, winners of the night.
Marc in a crisp black suit and Wang in a simple white shirt. Both showing their personal style and design aesthetic like their works.

Model assembles in designs by Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang. Look more like a fashion shoot than a red carpet.

Last item before I end my hype on CFDA Awards, is of course the after-party at the top of Standard Hotel. Partying all night, win or lose. Another year came and gone. May those who did not win, get it next year. Those who did, continue to flourish!!
