CFDA Awards 2011 Red Carpet: Best Dressed
For me, the standout look of the evening was Kirsten Dunst. Patrik Ervell was nominated as Men's Wear Designer of the Year. He didn't win, but he did take the red carpet in his custom tuxedo for Kirsten. And she carries it off beautifully. I love classic men's wear for women right now. It is such a timeless look. Well played, KD.
There is no question that Naomi Watts looked stunning in gold Calvin Klein. She delivered a masterclass in minimal dressing for formal occasions. The Olsens also took my breath away. I die for that pale blue midi-dress on Ashley. That and the black skirt on Mary-Kate are by their own label, The Row. The more I see of the latest collection, the more I want, I'll tell you that for free. Oh, and MK also added that happening little gold Chanel jacket. As you do. For them, these outfits are as good as it gets. Beautiful.
And finally, I had to wiki Amber Heard this morning. Apparently she is an American actress. I can't vouch for that, but I can say that she looks lovely. I am a total sucker for white, black and a hint of chartreuse (our very own Thula Sindi did this first). Way to introduce yourself, Amber. (She is wearing Cynthia Rowley, but Thula's was better.)
Liv Tyler wore the Women's Wear Designer of the Year Proenza Schoeler and looked very jolly. I mean that in a good way. I like it. Southern African model delight, Behati Prinsloo wore Rebecca Minkoff and looked very lovely (and a tiny bit young-Kate Moss) and one of my all-time favourite actresses, Judith Light, looked resplendent in lime green. Doesn't she look fantastic!
I am now gorged on fashion. Need to take a rest. What were your thoughts on it all, gang?
