It was the 50th CFDA on monday. First-time Womenswear Designer of the Year nominees Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen snagged the night’s most coveted award for The Row, edging out Marc Jacobs and the Proenza Schouler boys (I know...a little shocking right?). The night’s other big winners were Billy Reid for menswear and Reed Krakoff for accessories. Joseph Altuzarra, Phillip Lim, and Tabitha Simmons all took home the Swarovski Awards for Emerging Talent.
Asides from the winners, there's also the red carpet (most entertaining part of any award ceremony). I love the Asian heavy silk embroideries seen on Kate Bosworth, Dakota Fanning and Stephanie Winston. And who can take their eyes off babes like Erin Heatherton and Hilary Rhoda, both wearing lagoon coloured gowns. Pamela Love and Zoe Saldana both rocked a figure skimming black sheer gown, pure elegance and sensuality (can't go wrong with that)!
