CFDA Fashion Awards 2013 Best & Worst Dressed List
Our favourite best dressed at the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Fashion Awards 2013 are fashion stylist Brad Goreski in a fun, bright and colourful check suit by menswear designer of the year Thom Browne and Australian model Jessica Hart who looked sexy and elegant in a cut-out and lace skirt dress by Rachel Roy.
Unfortunately, many guests to the industry fashion event touted as the Oscars of fashion events dressed pretty conservatively and boring so much so that guests with bad fashion sense awkwardly stood out the most.
Elizabeth Olsen looks like she is ready for her graduation ceremony at last with younger sister Mary-Kate Olsen who has a penchant for wearing outfits that devour her petite frame. Mary-Kate Olsen is seen with a tad bit too much orange tanner and looks greasy enough to be a hot-dog and grill pushcart peddler at the sidewalk.
One would never imagine this beautiful actress is 16-years-old in this granny put-together pyjama outfit complete with a high-waist ankle length skirt. It looks like Haylee Steinfeld, like many other teenagers fall into the trap of trying to grow up too fast and prefer dressing much older than she really is. Hailee would then proceed to follow the paradox of women who dress like they are 16 when she's 61.
I am sure actress Jemima Kirke from the TV Series Girls was trying to channel her inner goth chick in this black see-through floor-length dress which unfortunately is unflattering to her body shape and makes her look bigger than she really is. The outfit may have looked better if she skipped the body suit and replaced it with a mini-dress slip.
Even Canadian supermodel Jessica Stam whom I absolutely adore failed to impress at the CFDA Fashion Awards 2013 red carpet in her tight curly granny hairdo and washed out look with minimum make-up. The bright yellow Rebecca Minkoff dress didn't help her pale complexion either. The Christian Loubutin platform shoes with neon yellow PVC ankle wraps looked cheap and did not go with her conservative cut peplum shift dress.
Joan Smalls cannot wait for her wedding bells to ring as she dresses in a white wedding gown with simple wedding-like accessories.
Karlie Kloss flashes a forced smile that looks incredibly fake. Her sexy dress by upcoming designer Cushnie et Ochs does not go well with her conservative hairdo which she tried to slick back with a ton of gel.
Karolina Kurkova would have looked better if her Michael Kors outfit was not a 2-piece blouse and shorts combo for a prestigious fashion awards event. Cody Horn's gem embellished Michael Kors dress looked like a dress one could purchase from Spanish high-street fashion brands and then attach a cheap black curtain to the waistline - all for under 200 dollars.
Lily Aldridge looked like she left the house in a long shapeless dress that could have been her shower curtains or window curtains. The Victoria's Secret model seemed to have forgotten she was still wearing a pair of kinky red fluffy bedroom slippers to the red carpet fashion event.
Olivia Palermo dresses too old for her age. One thing pretty young girls don't get - dressing conservatively and like an old lady does not equate to elegance. The gold lace-up shoes she wore looked cheap and tacky.
Nicole Richie looks like Angelina Jolie's doppelganger with her slick-back hair and sexy plain gold dress by Marc Jacobs. With Nicole's petite and skinny frame, the dress seems to be wearing her instead.
It's puzzling why one-half of the Alice+Olivia team's designer - Stacy Bendet, would arrive at the CFDA fashion awards in a flamenco dancer's dress.
Luxury jewellery designer Steven Lagos may be thinking of diamond crosses for his next collection in this pastor-inspired outfit. For all those aspiring pastors, get your bling-on from Father Steven Lagos.
Vera Wang looks like she has just woken up but her outfit is still effortlessly well put-together.
