I have been anticipating the CFDA this year much more than usual. When the CFDA announced earlier on this year that they will be honoring Rihanna with the Fashion Icon award it was set to be an exciting one. Honoring Rihanna with such a deserving award was enough for me to be excited about (she gives great speeches lol)! Her appearance and look on the red carpet was epic as expected! That plus all the other attendees looked great! The CFDA Fashion Awards celebrates and recognizes excellence in design and contribution in womens and menswear, as well as journalism and more associated within the fashion industry. Such ceremonies like this do not have worst dressed nominees lol! Don’t believe me? Check them out below…
Lets start off with Rihanna, who I’d like to say “stole the show” but she kinda owned it in the first place haha! So this epic look was expected! Rihanna went for a custom design by good friend Adam Selmam! I am in awe of this look! She looks stunning! I love the fitting of the sheer gown on her and the matching gloves and head scarf, it’s 1930’s Hollywood glamour with a bad girl twist! Which brings me to the big elephant in the room… we’ve seen less on Rihanna! lol! Theirs a thin line between being naked or an exhibitionist… This outfit to me leans more towards the artistic side and I think Rihanna does a good job looking sophisticated with all her assets on show!
Rhianna to me is one of the prettiest women in the world! Her make up i’m in love with! Her smoky eyes are refection, nude lips: flawless and her glow sublime!
Chanel Iman has been ticking all my boxes with her red carpet looks lately! She’s been tapping into her sexy a lot more and I’m here for it! The Monique Lhuillier gown is perfect on her.
Another Supermodel who was stunning in black was Joan Smalls! Her Parabal Gurung gown looks fierce on her! I love how she switched up her hair with the bangs; way to go!!
Coco Rocha is infamous for her forward thinking style and her bold attitude! She has brought both these elements with her on the red carpet! It’s dramatic, its Coco! On paper I would of gone for Ruby Woo with the lips, but I like how the darker tone of lips has gone down with this look. #ChristianSiriano
Solange Knowles looked angelic in Calvin Klien! Loving the hair and how fun the pop of pink on the lips has MADE this look!
Was not blown away with Jennifer Hudsons look, it’s a lot to do with the fitting; not so flattering at the waist. However I do like the hair and make up! #KaufmanFranco
Lupita went for longer hair; which i’m loving, prints; which always look great on her, shorts; always interesting on the red carpet, shoes: spot on with the style and colour! Loving this look! #Suno
Heidi Klum in Donna Karan, not crazy about this colour on her, but the style is gorgeous, she looks good!
Slightly disappointed with Chrissy Teigen’s look on the red carpet. Chrissy was in Rachel Roy, I like the dress and it’s color, however I think it’s a bit too simple and causal for such an event.
Rachel Roy on the other hand looked stunning! I love what the blazer does to the floral look! A touch of class I say!
Jenna Dylon coincidentally came in matching pants to Rachel Roy’s dress, she also chose to pair them with a blazer! Smart and quirky, I like a lot!
Liya Kebede I thought looked great but too smart. A bit too smart for the CFDA’s??? #WesGordon
White lace has become so practical now! Marian Cotillard looks amaze in this Dior number. The style is interesting and I think she went for the perfect choice of shoes.
Another white lace look on the red carpet that I adored was that of Sophia Bush. I think the necklace is a perfect touch, love the edge it gives the Marchesa dress along with her red lips.
Mira Duma looks cute, the fact that she tucked her hair in her dress; I find very interesting!
Naomi Campbell needs to reveal where this fountain of youth she is sipping from is!
Not what I was expecting from Oliva, more toned down than usual… missing the wow factor. But nevertheless I do like it!
My FAV twins! Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen. Adore their style and how their forever complimenting each other the twin thing! The only thing I’m unsure of is the kitten heels?? Hmm..
