Tonight is the highly anticipated “Oscars of Fashion,” which is more formally known as the CFDA Fashion Awards. Designers both old and new will be present to receive honorary and achievement awards regarding all aspects of the fashion industry.
Society’s best dressed will certainly be present. The CFDA Awards style is known to be simple, summery and elegant when it comes to guests' attire. What will the stars be wearing tonight? Let’s look at some past best-dressed nominees for an idea…
2006: Jessica Simpson in Michael Kors
Oh the days when Jessica Simpson was a sex simple. Something about this white lace Michael Kors dress makes me want to wear it everywhere. Her best accessory? That tan.
2009: Blake Lively in Michael Kors
Although the color of this simple bodycon dress is hot pink, I can’t stop staring at it. This is probably due to the fact that the dress is a Michael Kors design and most certainly because Blake Lively is wearing it. The girl can pull off California cool like no other.
2009: Diane Kruger in Jason Wu
Find me a woman more beautiful than Diane Kruger, I dare you.
2011: Karlie Kloss in Jason Wu
Simple and sophisticated. Fashion’s favorite model, Karlie Kloss, kills it in this Jason Wu gown.
2011: Kerry Washington in Calvin Klein
White cocktail dress simplicity. Perfect for a summery garden party.
2012: Zoe Saldana in Prabal Gurung
One can never go wrong with a svelte black gown. This Prabal Gurung mesh cut out version looks incredible on Zoe Saldana, and may have been the inspiration for this year’s Zuhair Murad mesh cut out dress.
