CFDA Fashion Awards: Red Carpet

Fashion Update: Solange Knowles Stuns in Yellow + More Fascinating Looks from the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards

Fashionwidget’s Favourites

Karolina, Solange & Kate

Zoe & Padma

June, Hilary & Selita

From Zoë Saldaña’s noir sheer cut-out Prabal Gurung to Solange Knowles in a yellow and white Marni mini, the fashions of the CFDA fashion awards were certainly a hot topic for discussion this year. I especially appreciated the understated elegance of Padma Lakshmi’s intricately detailed Naeem Khan gown, in a sea of colourful statement ensembles, I think she managed to stand out in black just like Zoë Saldaña. June Abrose glittered in silver sequins. Hilary Rhonda colour-blocked in cut-out perfection and Selita Ebanks was a vision in white. With the absence of Lady Gaga (a previous CFDA fashion award recipient) who stole the show and not to mention all the attention last year, there was room for all sorts of fashion statements this year. Fashionwidget, narrowed it down to the nine pictures as seen above, we also loved Devon Aoki in her amazing red and black Alice+Olivia strapless gown. Unfortunately, our photographer was unable to snap a photo of her. Never fear, I will re-blog or update this post if I stumble upon a photo of her (in the dress) that I can legally upload.

You can’t fake fashion as they say. Too bad the majority of the bags sold out within minutes of their release. At $150 a pop it’s no wonder eh? No word yet on whether or not they will be re-released by popular demand but for now, fashion enthusiasts can still snag the CFDA version of the totes at the Fashion Vault on eBay for $35 and you can view the full range of sold out designs.
