2011 CFDA Awards Red Carpet

Posted on June 07, 2011

Darlings, if the Met Gala is fashion’s prom night, then we suppose the CFDAs are more like a school awards banquet, except everyone’s afraid to move too much or eat anything because they’re all dressed in thousands of dollars of borrowed clothes. Ah fashion world, you’re so deliciously bizarre. Let’s run down the looks, kittens:

PinAmber Heard in Cynthia Rowley

Cute. We don’t love the hem or the shoes paired with it. Mustard yellow with beige is one of those color combinations that actually sounds bad without having to see it.

PinAnderson Cooper in Ralph Lauren

Perfection. That hairstyle makes him look a little older, though. Not a crime; just an observation.

PinAshley Greene in Michael Kors

The dress is cute, although it gives off a pretty casual vibe. We really don’t like the shoes.

PinAshley Olsen in The Row and Mary Kate Olsen in a Chanel jacket and The Row skirt

We’ll give them credit for having clearly definable styles. Unfortunately, those styles are (on the left) “70-year-old former movie star” and (on the right) “70-year-old socialite.”

PinBrad Goreski in Simon Spurr

BRAVO, sir. BRA. VO.

PinChloe Sevigny in Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony

Ohmigod, you guys! We think Chloe may have returned as “Sage” this time! Looks like she’s undercover as a bitchy, nymphomaniac fashion editor, so mum’s the word.


LOVE that shade of bronzey gold. HATE every one of her accessories.

PinJessica Alba in Diane von Furstenberg

We love that color combination and we love the gold accents, but we don’t think that peachy top goes with her skin tone.

PinJoy Bryant in Rachel Roy

Pretty basic.

PinJudith Light

Stunning dress in a gorgeous color. She looks great. Love the cuff.

PinKathy Griffin

Oh, Kathy. You look really great, but you’re wearing way too many bangles. It honestly looks a little silly.

PinKatie Cassidy in Behnaz Sarafpour

It’s pretty and fresh-looking, but the skirt’s a bit figure skater. And we will never stop declaring that “nude” platform pumps are the devil’s shoe.

PinKerry Washington in Calvin Klein

Very pretty and minimalist chic. It also looks enviably comfortable. We bet a lot of women in more restrictive getups were giving her the stinkeye all night.

PinKirsten Dunst in Patrik Ervell

She always falters with the hair. The outfit looks great (although the pants are a skosh too tight), but that top knot does nothing for it.

PinLeelee Sobieski in Adam Kimmel

Love it in a “Charlie commercial” kind of way, but we really think it needs a belt to keep the front from looking as sloppy as it does. Those shoes were an inspired choice.

PinLinda Gray in Pamella Roland

We miss drunk Sue Ellen and her eyebrow acting. This is classic and pretty. Nothing earth-shattering, but she looks good and the color suits her.

PinLiv Tyler in Proenza Schouler

She can get pretty cracky in her fashion choices, but this is the best she’s looked in a long time. LOVE the colors on her and the black accessories paired with it. A very put together look that suits her.

PinLucy Liu in Monique Lhuillier

Nice to see someone bring a little diva drama to the proceedings. It’s not the most original look in the world, but she does look spectacular.

PinMarcia Cross in Pamella Roland

FABULOUS. She really should have followed the Ann-Margret thing to its logical conclusion and gone for big hair and lots of purple and green eyeshadow.

PinMiranda Kerr in Michael Kors

Girl is working the SHIT out of this look. Not one wrong move made. She’s serving fierceness.

PinNaomi Watts in Calvin Klein

The problem with the Calvin Klein aesthetic is that there’s a fine line separating “chic minimalism” from “depressed person.” She looks like she won the “decorate your hospital gown” contest at the inpatient facility.

PinSofia Coppola in Marc Jacobs

Conventional, but pretty.

Come to think of it, almost everybody played it pretty safe, didn’t they? Then again, there aren’t many real disasters either.

PinWhitney Port in Pamella Roland

Yup. Safe and conservative. No one wanted to risk pissing off the fashion gods and no stylist wanted to be known among all their peers as the one who fucked it up for the CFDAs. Still, no complaints. For the most part, everyone looked chic and the outfits looked surprisingly well thought out. Well done, ladies.
