On the Scene: The 2012 CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Awards
By Claire

A slew of fashion insiders hit the town for last night’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, a ceremony which acknowledges young design talent and gifts one lucky hopeful with a $300,000 prize and a yearlong mentorship with an industry veteran. This year Greg Chait of Elder Statesman won the top prize, while Tabitha Simmons and Jennifer Meyer Maguire of Jennifer Meyer nabbed the runners-up spots and $100,000 each.
Everyone from designers Rachel Roy and Michelle Ochs to models Chanel Iman and Liya Kebede came to fete the new appointments– and there was more than enough style to go around.

Take a look at a few highlights:

Rachel Roy opted for optic white in the winter, offsetting the bright tone with a leopard blouse and strappy sandals. Many fashion rules are being broken here, which is totally fine amongst creatives, but the length and cut of her pants is confusing. A nice floor or ankle length trouser would’ve improved this look tenfold. Better luck next time, RR!

Socialite, model, and DJ Hannah Bronfman looked perfectly pretty in a corseted tea length dress and black pumps. Simple and chic!

New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz also rolled through, flaunting a gray suit and pale gray suede oxfords. A little tailoring and a brown shoe would’ve brought this look to another level; looking good nonetheless, sir.

Queen Bee Anna Wintour posed with the night’s speaker, Christopher Bailey of Burberry, in a Burberry trench and her signature bob.

Liya Kebede showed the girls how it’s done in a Proenza Schouler dress and strappy black sandals.

Liv Tyler also wore Proenza, in brilliant blue.

A saucy cutout was the focal point of Christian Ricci’s Richard Chai Love Spring 2013 dress. Hot!

Vera Wang exuded rocker chic in a jewel encrusted top and skinny black pants. She went the understated route, but it works.

The inimitable Diane von Furstenberg twinkled in a sequined white sheath with furry shoulders and Christian Louboutin sandals. I’m loving her DVF clock circle box clutch!

Andre Leon Talley laughed it up with Carolina Herrera and Caroline Murphy in his signature voluminous cape, cast in black. We can’t see his full look, but black on black is always chic.

Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs of Cushnie et Ochs knew the score, slipping on black cocktails from their line. Black can be boring, so they made sure their looks had interesting elements like cut outs and silver accents.

Chanel Iman looked glamorous in a low cut golden gown. Just a little bit more length to this gown (to obscure those sandal wedges) would’ve been fab, but I’m nitpicking. Ms. Iman looks hot!

And lastly, Justin Salguero, Jourdan Dunn, Karlie Kloss, and Daniel Silberman looked smart in spectacles.

  5. Above Par says:

    I honestly wasn’t inspired by any of them. But Jourdan and Karlie look strangely similar in the last picture, they could pass as interracial twins.

  6. Liya looked stunning. I dont know why, but gorgeous Chanel Iman doesn’t ever seem to look inspiring.
