Intern 1 On the Scene: Solange Knowles, Pharrell Williams, June Ambrose, and more at The 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

The guests in attendance at the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards brought glamour and high fashion, as is naturally to be expected at an event of that stature.

Let’s dissect their looks, shall we?

Solange Knowles complimented her yellow and white 70′s inspired Marni Spring 2012 frock with a pair of yellow striped perspex heeled Missoni sandals. Her afro and soft make-up make this look a stunner. My only gripe is her arm-candy, it seems a bit too hard edged for an otherwise memorable ensemble.

I love Pharrell Williams, the man is a musical genius and oozes charisma. Unfortunately he missed with this look. An outfit that looks part evening appropriate, and part street wear is leaving me confused. Why the winter hat Pharrell? Where did your socks go?


When you’re a seasoned fashion stylist, it’s hardly likely that you’ll flop on the red carpet. June Ambrose proves time and time again why she is one of the most respected in the game. Seen here in a Fall 2012 Chris Benz silver sequined stunner, topped off with voluminous body waves, Ms. Ambrose is giving me a Donna Summer tease, and I am in LOVE.


Zoe Saldana looked absolutely gorgeous in this plunging neckline, semi-sheer floor length Fall 2012 Prabal Gurung gown. It’s a dress that could have veered into disaster territory if overdone, but her statuesque frame, slicked back do, and minimal accessories allow the dress to take center stage and rightfully absorb the spotlight.

Designer Rachel Roy opted for punchy pink in this floor length gown. The fabric and drape are giving me a bathrobe/housecoat vibe, but I’m loving the color, and her makeup stays flawless.

Tracy Reese was also in attendance. For such a talented designer, she never seems to hit her looks out of the park! Loving the jewelry, however.

Here’s supermodel Joan Smalls in Michael Kors posing alongside the designer himself. This look instantly became my favorite of the night. The clean, crisp white dress boasts a dip hem that is perfectly on trend this season. She completed her outfit with strappy gold sandals, a gold clutch, and a gold cuff. Amazing.



And lastly, model Selita Ebanks also opted for a white gown, a spring favorite. While her brown locks and golden skin are stunning, this Hervé Léger by Max Azria dress leaves me less than impressed. It resembles a club dress poorly fused with an evening gown.

That does it!
Who do you think was best dressed?

    Zoe as always a stunner. Loved solange, handbag adds a bit of quirk. Joan Smalls in the Michael Kors look is so refreshing. June’s teased hair is everything.

  15. Anonymous says:

    Solange does it again, she is winning and drop dead gorgeous in that Marni dress. Had my eyes on them when they hit the runway from their Spring 2012 collection.

  16. Dionne says:

  19. Can says:

    I’m loving Selita, sorry. She looks STUNNING and is giving it to us with the pose. I loved this dress from the homepage. Zoe and Joan are also equally gorgeous. Score one for the tall ladies!

  20. Digg says:

    Solo and zoe are killing the game,but Joan is my favorite. It is so fresh, simple and pretty….screams “summer”

  21. Marsha D says:

    Good job intern 1 :) !! As far as looks I love Selita Banks gown

  26. Soul Touch says:

    Solange looks awesome…minus the shoes, not a fan. But that dress, the glow of her skin, and of course her hair, just love it.

  27. Amani says:

    Good writing Intern #1

  29. Mrs Windy City says:

    June looks like she’s wearing a magician’s cape … don’t get it

  30. NYC chick says:

    Wonderful looks here. I loooove Joan and Zoe in particular. I am not loving June. She looks preggers. The hair is easy enough to do for the earlier post requesting the tutorial. Set on large rollers. Tease a bit underneath and smooth out on the top. Very easy…particularly if you are natural.

  31. Taj says:

    I am impressed by Intern 1 thus far!!!! I love Solange’s look as well as Zoe, Selita, and Joan.

  32. SHAQ NICHOLE says:

    Solange: Gorgeous!

    Joan: Simple and beautiful!

  33. Dom says:

    Intern #1′s voice really fits in with the rest of the writers for the site.

    I love Zoe’s look. Joan looks preggers.

  34. Sharon says:

    Zoe and Solo ROCKED!!!!!!

  35. Tamara says:

    Zoë killed it. Hands down.

  36. Jai says:

    Way to go Intern 1! Great piece, you have a great writing style.

  37. Sammie says:

    Yay I love intern 1! The writing style and chosen looks are both great.

    As much as I love Solange & June’s looks, Zoe definitely took it for the night. She looks stunning.

  38. Likkle Miss says:

    I guess I’m alone, bc I dont like June Ambrose dress AT ALL! It does nothing for her body..but that hair–fabulous! (if you are not following June on instagram, you def should. She is very interesting) And Rachel Roy looks tired in the face, but pretty dress. Selita, Joan and Zoe look good as well.

    P.S. I’m rooting for Intern 1!!
