2009 CFDA Fashion Awards

Last night was the 2009 CFDA Fashion Awards and so, another opportunity for a celebrity/model/designer fashion post. Here’s a look at some of the lovely and not-s0-lovely looks from last night’s event at the Lincoln Center in New York.

tory_burch_cfda

Designer Tory Burch. Not sure if I’m digging the metallic gold on this dress, it’s a little space-ish for me but it fits her nicely.

rachel_zoe_cfda

I actually really like this whole look on Rachel Zoe. The color is nice and summery, accessories are right on and I really love the draping of the dress.

molly_sims_cfda

Especially after seeing most of the other outfits, I’m not sure I’m crazy about this getup Molly Sims is sporting. A little too much going on. But mostly, as much as I’m usually all about big poofy dresses, I’m not a fan of the Marilyn screen-print on her skirt.

lydia_hearst_cfda

Here is model Lydia Hearst in something else I’m not really a fan of. I like the color and the sheer draping up top but for some reason, I think the crystals and jagged cut on the bottom make it a little Tinkerbell looking.

kirsten_dunst_cfda

Totally loving Kirsten Dunst’s shoes. And that’s about it…

heidi_klum_cfda

Heidi Klum showing off her baby bump in another space age-type outfit.

emanuelle_chriqui

I probably would not have opted for black shoes and accessories with this look, but this dress looks quite hot on Emanuelle Chriqui. It fits her just right, she’s not trying too hard and it’s simple and flirty.

donna_karan_cfda

Designer Donna Karan in a classic black dress.

diane_von_furstenberg_cfda

Designer Diane von Furstenberg in a trendy off-white frock.

diane_kruger_cfda

I like Diane Kruger’s dress, sans the black embellishments on the shoulders of it that is.

claire_danes_cfda

Again, it’s really hard to go wrong with black. Claire Danes looks quite lovely in this.

blake_lively_cfda

Blake Lively looks like an all-American Barbie doll in this hot pink dress. It’s quite refreshing to see her in something that’s not too risque or not trying too hard. Good job Blake!

betsy_johnson_cfda

I think this is just the cutest picture of designer Betsey Johnson. She looks the epitome of her line; fun, funky and totally wild.

ashley_olsen_cfda

As I’ve said before, you can always count on one (or both) of the Olsens for something to talk about when it comes to their outfits. This shade of orange looks good on Ashley Olsen. But the big shoulder pads do not. And no, I don’t care that they’re making a comeback next fall.

vera__wang_cfda

Designer Vera Wang in a totally crazy outfit I’m digging.

Which is your favorite look?
