Awards, Kerry Washington, On the Scene
On the Scene: The 2013 CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund Awards
By Claire

Aside from the Met Gala, the CFDA Fashion Awards ceremony is another huge night for fashion, as insiders coalesce to highlight burgeoning talent and acknowledge those tastemakers who have made significant contributions to the industry. The annual awards always bring out a wonderful cross section of designers, celebrities, and models, styled to the nines.
On the Scene- The 2013 CFDA-Vogue Fashion Fund Awards
Let’s see who attended, and what they wore!
Nicole Richie skewed statuesque in a golden Marc Jacobs number, which hung delicately off her slender frame. Wine red lips and a sleek chignon completed her look. Hot!
Kerry Washington also sidled up to golden undertones in a Jason Wu gown, accessorized by a Lanvin clutch and Monique Pean jewelry. Her dress is elegant enough, though I wish she had opted for a bit more drama in the makeup department.
Sofia Vergara showed off her gorgeous decolletage in a bold green Spring 2013 Herve L Leroux Couture dress, offset by Lorraine Schwartz jewels. She knows how to work it, and be seen. Hot!
Olsen sisters Elizabeth and Mary Kate bet on black for the night, with Elizabeth in The Row and Mary Kate in Issey Miyake. Black and black is always chic–unless you’re drowning in fabric, as both of these ladies seem to be. Hmm…
2013 CFDA Fashion Awards - Winners Walk
Linda Evangelista did a little bit better in a black tier layer silk organza and chiffon fall 2013 gown by Oscar de la Renta, though I wish it had accentuated her svelte frame just a tad.
Miranda Kerr was party ready in a Proenza Schouler dress, topped off by Stuart Weitzman accessories. Loving the colors here.
Model Jessica Stam complemented a short lemon backless Rebecca Minkoff peplum cocktail with Christian Louboutin Dufoura PVC and Suede sandals. This is cute look…for a different event. With all the gowns, Ms. Stam looks a bit out of place.
Model Joan Smalls got the memo, and wore an angelic Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci Resort 2014 white corset dress with white lace pants. Her toes could’ve used a little polish, but I’m nitpicking here: she looks hot!

Alessandra Ambrosio also looked radiant in a backless white Kaufmanfranco top and matching white maxi skirt.
Adriana Lima was styled in this Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci creation for the night. I don’t mind the sheer hem, but something about the black sequined shorts seems a bit disjointed. Perhaps if they were gold? Or picked up on a color in the dress?
Karolina Kurkova showed off an envious pair of gams in a silver sequined short set by Michael Kors. Yes, it’s short, but the sequins make it sizzling hot! Model Cody Horn looks quite nice as well.

J.Crew designer Jenna Lyons looked like she was heading to a day at the office in pants and a light reflecting sweatshirt. Hmm..this outfit does nothing for me, but I will take that clutch please!

Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet was absolutely darling in a red and black gown of her design. This is how you do it!
How adorable does Ashley Madekwe look in this Cushnie et Ochs cut out dress? Loving the Tiffany blue color, white pumps, and contrasting clutch. Hot!
2013 CFDA Fashion Awards - Arrivals
Stylist Brad Goreski mixed plaids in this straight off the runway Thom Browne spring 2013 suit. The concept is great, but the execution is off. Hmmm…this is giving me clown chic.
Oliva Palermo looked ready to shimmy and shake in a Dennis Basso dress, topped off by gold mules and a Zara clutch. Stylish, flirty, fun… I love it!

Lastly, Geoffrey Beene lifetime achievement award winner Vera Wang looked every bit the hot momma she is in an asymmetric dress layered over slim pants.
That does it!
Who do you think was best dressed?

    The only outfit that stuck out for me was nicole richie- I loved everything about it. Kerry looked like mother of the bride and Ashley madekwe is as always cute but understated.

    I think i can make nicole richies dress using tin foil

  3. AMH says:

    Nicole Richie!!!! Wow. Less is more ladies! Perfect styling. I love that she is about 5’2 like I am and a similar build and she looks 6 feet tall in that dress. She makes me want to wear it.

    On the other hand, I like Oliva’s over-assessorized look as well.

    Ashley looks great as always but I would have liked to see her step it up more for an event like this.

  4. Niksocool says:

    Olivia and Ashley for the win!

  5. Ash says:

    While the outfits are gorgeous, the ladies are freakishly skinny – some look down-right sick. What size are they wearing -6?? That is all!!!

  6. Anonymous says:

    Maybe Joan had on clear polish??…but Im nitpicking maybe the writer meant colored polish (…and i can hear them coming for me ..OH WELL!!)


    Joan for the win

  7. Jessica Stams feet says:

    Jessica Stam feet are all the way wrong in that shoe OMG not as bad as Julianne Moore the other day but umm wow

  8. HavilandClarke says:

    Can someone, anyone please explain the deal with white pumps?? I dont get or like this trend. Also Nicole Ritchie can do no wrong in my eyes..

  9. Ewurafua says:

    Oliva Palermo’s clutch IS NOT Sergio Rossi. It’s Zara. It’s known as the GEOMETRIC BEADED EVENING BAG. Here is the link (UK site) http://www.zara.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product/uk/en/zara-neu-S2013/358019/1082576/GEOMETRIC+BEADED+EVENING+BAG

    Ps. As to the comment about Joan’s toes needing some polish – that’s like telling someone who is rocking her real hair, that she needs a weave! There is nothing wrong in rocking your natural toe colour.

  10. Neesiepoo says:

    Wow.. I’m here for Nicole Richie. She looks absolutely amazing!!

    I like Kerry’s dress but I wish she would have worn some dramatic earrings or a bright lip.

    Not really feeling the rest :/

  11. Kae says:

    Nicole Richie & Olivia Palermo!! <3333

  12. Kerry says:

    Everyone is so skinny

  13. Claire says:

    @Ewurafua Thanks for the correction, I updated.
    Regarding color/polished toes on the red carpet…I guess it comes down to personal preference. It seems a lot of models opted for no or light polish with their outfits. It’s just not my thing. And for some reason Joan’s feet really stand out here! But as I said, she looks hot either way.

  14. bella says:

    @havil i don’t like the white shoes trend either..Nicole Richie looks the best

  15. JaneBMore says:

    LOL @ “clown chic”.

  16. Derianne says:

    Joan Smalls Alessandra, & Sofia did it…other than that ehh :-/

  17. I’m here for Karolina and Olivia.

  18. Anonymous says:

    Jenna & Brad, apparently didn’t get the memo stating this event was a “ball”.

    Love Nic, Joan, Linda, Sofia & Kerry of course.

  19. Anonymous says:

    Nicole Ritchie for PRESIDENT! Flawless : )

  20. Brandi says:

    JOAN!! & Nicole Ritchie for second most flawless.

  21. Noirre says:

    Joan did it.

  22. koko says:

    loooove the gooooold mules.

    and nicole richie, yes ma’am. youre a winner!

    i think kerry washington needed a bit of lip color and to definitely NOT pose with her hand in the pocket. just cuz there is a pocket doesnt mean….

    i like the no nail color. models do stuff a little different. i think an actress…yes, maybe a bright color. models…they seem to be a more demure species and so i dig the lack of nail polish or clear or nude polish.

  23. Porsche says:

    Olivia Palermo and Miranda Kerr are amazing.

    Kerry needs a mouth.

  24. Anonymous says:

    This was the worst fashion at a fashion event ever! Hair wrong, details wrong, just a lot wrong. Nicole is the beginning and ending for me. Maybe next year will be better

  25. Anonymous says:

    Sophia or Richie!!!!

  26. Likkle Miss says:

    Nicole and Olivia – flawless.

  27. Madeline says:

    I love the attendees who embrace avante garde fashion. Nicole, Olivia, Miarande, Karolina, Stacey Bendet, and that model Jessica Stam look perfect for a fashion award show.

    Sofia looks nice but boring, she always looks like this on the red caret.
    Joan looks underwhelming.

  28. Xi Xi Topp says:

    Miranda, Olivia, Nicole, Joan, & Ashley…in that order

  29. AzizMom says:

    Nicole has come a long way from her reality show with Paris Hilton. Bravo!

  30. Jei says:

    Most everyone looks good! Joan werk!!
