2013 CFDA Fashion Awards: The Best

Yesterday, the Council of Fashion Designers of America gathered to award the top fashion designers.  This year the top menswear award when to Thom Browne and the top womenswear award went to Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler.  Actresses, actors, designers, and models all attended the event.  Interestingly, all four of my best-dressed picks from the evening are actresses as opposed to designers or models:  Ashley Madekwe, Hailee Steinfeld, Nicole Richie, and Sophia Vergara.


Ashley is certainly on-trend in her mint-colored dress and, while I normally have a strong aversion to white pumps, she manages to pull them off.  Hailee's outfit may not appeal to everyone, but I think she looks great and the crop top is very youthful and age-appropriate for her.  Nicole has certainly redeemed herself from her Met Gala disaster.  She is just oozing sex-appeal in her liquid gold dress.  Finally, I think it would be difficult for Sophia to put on something that actually makes her look terrible but this dress in particular really suits her shape and the color is just gorgeous on her.  If you are loving these looks as much as I am, and want to try to recreate their looks, check out these options:
