The crème de la crème of the fashion
The Council of Fashion Designers of America awards took its glam place in New York Public Library on Monday. It was plenty of stardom. Each designer had a celebrity next to him or her to make a statement of who represents their fashion vision.
Maggie Gyllenhaal wore a green see-through Proenza Schouler with patterns on top and let me tell you that looked awkward. She reminds me of the socks I got for Christmass when I was 7. Victoria Beckham put on a dress by Marc Jacobs but it didn’t help her, instead hundreds of cutout hearts made her look like Valentine’s party at the elementary school.
The only thing I liked in her outfit were those vampy black sandals with her black-and-white minidress. Posh has her own DVB clothing line and she admitted she’s not good enough for CFDA. She told People:
I’m a starter at this. I’ve got a long way to go [before I could win a CFDA award].”
And finally Eva Mendes! She wore a clean white column dress by Francisco Costa, the women’s designer at Calvin Klein. As soon as the envelope was opened Eva let out a loud yelp. Her designer won the precious award.
And surely there was Naomi Campbell and undeniably in Yves Saint Laurent black gown-like pants. She held back her tears during the somber speech by the head f organization Diane Von Furstenberg. Top designer told guests:
Tonight the world of fashion is mourning. Yves is an artist who always surprised us with his silhouette and color palettes. He was a magician who changed the way women dressed forever. Like so many great artists, his life and his work really do live on.”
Saint Laurent died from a brain tumor at the age of 71.
Diana Von Furstenberg had Eva Longoria dressed in her pink frock and gold stilettos to match the gold-beaded neckline of the hot-pink dress.
The last but not the least touch for Eva Longoria was her husband Tony Parker. Basketball player was dressed by Brooks Brothers.
The crystal company Swarovski presented award to younger designers for Emerging Talent like Tory Burch, the maker of flats with her logo on the toe. She was given the award for accessories.
While that Rodarte label by sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy were granted for women’s wear.
Band of Outsiders represented by Scott Sternberg got the men’s wear award. Swarowsky didn’t forget to give an award to noted Philip Crangi for his accessories.
Special awards went to designers Carolina Herrera and Dries Van Noten, and surely to Candy Pratts Price, the executive fashion director of Style.com. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg was thanked and awarded for negotiating the show in Bryant Park through 2010.
Fran Lebowitz was the evening’s emcee.
