Starry Eyed Surprise

As I was drifting in and out of sleep last night,
I couldn't help but wonder how the night,
which reassures designers and models alike,
was coming together.

CFDA Fashion Awards are special,
so special that the carpet last night was grey,
no need for red,
when you have designers, models & actors
strutting up and down,
red is too bright, 'cause grey proved such a delight.

Gwyneth Paltrow in asymmetric black shimmered,
like the Manhattan skylight,
SJP paid tribute to a legend and was gowned
in Alexander McQueen,
Jess Biel was loud and proud in beautiful DVF,
Alexa Chung choose simple beige,
but worked it.

City star Whitney Port looked beautiful in silver,
Jessica Stam chose black,
Rachel Zoe looked proud in Marc Jacobs,
Joan Smalls looked fierce in a mini.
Some chose white, some pink, some red,
some blue, Anna Wintour wore glasses.

This was the perfect NY night.
Standing out from the crowd,
tall and proud, was statuesque stunner

Michael Kors was a winner,
so too was Marc Jacobs, Jason Wu,
Christopher Bailey & Alexander Wang.

Designers, models & actors should be proud,
Fashion is always rocky,
but this night was just rockin'.
All in honour of the late, great Alexander McQueen.

Not only did Gwyneth Paltrow arrive on the arm of Michael Kors, she also wore this beautiful black shimmering gown by him. My favourite of the night for sure.

This Diane Von Furstenburg creation is my type of dress and Jessica Biel looked stunning. What do you think?

Sarah Jessica Parker in this bright, floral Alexander McQueen number. She did him proud.

Whitney Port in silver David Meister. I like how simple but effective this gown is.

Alexa Chung in typical Alexa fashion in this Marc Jacobs dress. That length dress would look hideous on me, but she works it.

Model Joan Smalls works this mini. Pictured with Monique Pean.

So what do you think? A starry, starry night?

I love the DVF but I think SJP in Alexander McQueen stole the show, that dress is stunning! Alexa Chung now so much, I'm sorry but I hate that dress!

Love this post! I agree with you, thought Jessica Biel looked best. Loved the colours of her dress.

Love McQueen, but wasn't feeling it on SJP.

My favorite is Alexa Chung's dress. It's sweet and a bit on the granny side which I love all the more!

Ah... Alexa <3


Nausica said...

Thank you!:)

I like SJP, she's always so eccentric, but still classy and sexy...

Ashley said...

Sarah Jessica Parker completely stands out out of all of those. All of the looks are great, except I'm not quite digging Alexa's gown. :) Jessica Biel's dress is almost ugly, but I'm still so intrigued!

Pop Champagne said...

As much as I can't stand SJP and her veiny claws I have to admit that she is an amazing dresser especially on the red carpet!!

My favorite of the event was Dakota Fanning (not pictured here) but I liked SJP and Whitney Port, too. However, I think this year's outfits weren't that 'wowing' like other times. :/
