Dreamers, I don’t know about you…but I am dying for award season to start. And with the Hollywood Film and CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards going down this week, I can feel the champagne crying out. Because, in truth, what’s better than sipping on bubbly whilst live-tweeting up a storm with you guys? Nothing!
While we prepare ourselves for the emergence of award season, let’s enjoy the red carpet roundup of this week’s 12th annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards. And truly, no one appreciates a perfectly landscaped red carpet more than Vogue!
*queue the dramatic poses before a perfectly trimmed wall of shrubbery*
Amanda Seyfried in Givenchy’s Manhatten Couture
Last NYFW, Givenchy made their New York debut with a lingerie-inspired couture collection…and of course the Paris house’s favorite starlet Amanda Seyfried had to model a piece. I do like this, but I feel there’s something missing. Wouldn’t dramatic emerald earrings kick this up a notch? I think so!
Demi Moore in Zac Posen
One thing the world did not need, Zac Posen goes Western. One thing the world absolutely did not need…Demi Moore randomly trying to do it justice. This seems like a perfect example of mistaken identity.
Karlie Kloss in Proenza Schouler Resort 2016
Is anyone else distracted by the lack of pedicure action happening here? Because, if supermodels like Karlie Kloss are walking around with un-pedicured toes…what HOPE is there for the rest of us?
Lake Bell in Calvin Klein
Confession: I have a *random* girl crush on Lake Bell. There’s something sophisticated, sexy and bad ass about her, no? Even without a slinky Calvin Klein number…which by all accounts, is nailing it.
Lorde in Givenchy
I just LOVE her expression. “Uh, Riccardo. Dude. Is this a pantsuit I’m wearing or a dress over pants? Come to think of it, is lingerie really expected as clothes? Also…can someone please explain the physics behind these shoes because I’m not sure I trust them to give my toes enough support…”
Vera Wang in….Vera Wang
But, are those DIOR boots? Or just cheap Dior knock-off boots? In which case…does Dior have a right to sue for copyright infringement?
Zendaya in Thakoon
I’ve yet to see any solid work from Zendaya, but girl does use these press events to her advantage. From the ankles up, I love this. It’s young with just the right amount of ‘alternative’ mixed in. I AM having doubts about the shoes, though. They’re taking an all-around cool outfit, and dumbing it down. Also, the pedicure clashes with the shoes….and come to think of it, the shoes kind of clash against themselves because I’m not sure orange and fur are a power duo, you know? *sips wine*
On that note, I’m going to hit *publish* immediately on this because I’m excited for a new Scream Queens and ready to go *mute* on brain activity geared towards work.
As we inch closer towards awards season though, let me know who you think is poised to be a big game-changer this season. It seems we’ll have Amber Heard and Carey Mulligan on hand to mix things up. Is there a certain A-lister you think will really bring it to the carpet this year? Spill!
ALSO – let me know your pick for BEST dressed on the CFDA red carpet. (I’m going with a footless Zendaya. That dress is amazing..but the shoes? Bad! Perhaps Amanda Seyfried for second place.)
