CFDA's Best Dressed
I've always had a passion for fashion. Before I had ever considered a career path, I had collected stacks of magazines in my bedroom - keeping them for the sake of inspiration and, honestly, for the aesthetic appeal. I could spend hours perusing each iconic publication, lingering as long on the advertisements as I did on the actual editorials (and advertorials...we'll get to that in a later post). When I began this blog it was with the hope of being able to express this passion, and hopefully offer insight on the industry in my own voice - the voice of a woman who has never lived in New York, never attended a major Fashion Week (except for Moda Magazine's in Madison!). The voice of the woman who used to be the girl with stacks and stacks of magazines in her bedroom.
Because of that desire, I am not so weary about posting yet another Best Dressed list, particularly because of the event I'm featuring in this post. The CFDA Awards are an annual event in which the movers and shakers in the fashion industry are celebrated and honored. Made up of iconic members of the industry such as Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors and Vera Wang, these awards are especially reflective of great talent in the industry.
Below are my favorite looks from this year's CFDA Awards Red Carpet, in no particular order:
Alexa Chung in Prabal Gurung
Alicia Silverstone in Christian Siriano
Irina Shayk in Misha Nonoo
Jamie Chung in Banana Republic
Julianne Hough in Michael Kors
Karlie Kloss in Rosie Assoulin
Riley Keough in Proenza Schouler
Rosie Huntington Whiteley in Michael Kors
