Last night, the Council of Fashion Designers of America held their annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards where the best up and coming designers in America competed to win the coveted CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund For 2012. In the end, Greg Chait of the Elder Statesman won the prize with runner-ups Tabitha Simmons and Jennifer Meyer. There were 10 nominees in total. Presenters included Emma Stone, Christopher Bailey of Burberry Prorsum, and Chelsea Clinton. Attendees ran amuck from celebrities like Christina Ricci to fashion designers Diane von Furstenberg to models like Coco Rocha and Karlie Kloss. Designers came flaunting celebrities and models that wore their creations including Liv Tyler and model Liya Kebede who wore Proenza Schouler and Allison Williams who has been a devoted follower of Peter Som for quite some time.
And of course, as much as we care who wins, Second City Style also cares about how well (or not so well) everyone is dressed. Let’s see who made it into the Best Dressed category.
It’s hard for Emma Stone to look bad in anything, but I’ve actually never seen her wearing Burberry Prorsum. Or matching blue to green. Regardless, the look is great and we all know she can definitely pull off a peplum.
No one has better stature, posture, or fashion-savvy genes than model Coco Rocha seen here in patterned Suno, a nominee for a CFDA award.
Alexa Chung knows how to go from grunge to chic and everything in between. She pulls off Thakoon so well.
Miranda Kerr pulls off pink so well (she’s a Victoria’s Secret Angel after all!) and she especially knows how to perfectly wear a new designer. She’s seen here in a design by Sofia Sizzi, the woman behind Giuletta.
No one does urban prints better than Proenza Schouler who flaunted actress Liv Tyler, model Liya Kebede, but also dressed runner up Tabitha Simmons.
A bandeau never looked so good…like Caroline Trentini‘s Suno two-piece ensemble.
Christina Ricci flaunted Richard Chai on her arm, while Allison Williams looked ravishing in Peter Som, next to the designer.
With cutouts being the style dujour of the evening.
But alas, with Best Dressed also comes Worst Dressed and these stars and fashionistas unfortunately fit into that category.
And even Anna Wintour herself, the epitome of fantastic fashion, could have picked a better color combination and pattern.
