2010 CFDA Fashion Awards Part 2

I find the CFDA Fashion Awards somewhat similar to the Met Gala Ball, in that it attracts celebrities, models and fashion designers alike, and it's definitely an event I would love to get an invite to! Just to be able to mingle with the people whose creativity amazes me, like Marc Jacobs who won the 2010 Womanswear Designer of the Year Award (which was presented by my favourite of the evening, Jessica Biel)

Dakota Fanning presented the Accessory Designer of the Year Award to Alexis Bittar, in a white lace Marchesa Bridal dress. She looks adorable and not at all bridal (Kate Hudson, take note), the dress is cute and youthful, and Dakota's innocent enough to pull this off without seeming ironic.

One of my favourite models of the evening was Devon Aoki in a black and cream, belted Zac Posen strapless gown. I love how the two opposing shades come together in that jagged edge, instead of the usual two-tone or even ombré that we've been seeing a lot of. Devon accessorized played up the edge of this gown by pairing it with either chainmail cuffs or fingerless gloves... I can't quite tell, either way, she's making it work!

Gwyneth Paltrow looked confident and sexy wearing a shimmery black paillete one-shoulder custom Michael Kors cut-out gown.

Alexis Bledel looked mature in a nude shimmering, asymmetrical Behnaz Sarafpour dress, yet still managed to look her age thanks to the stack of bangles (and flawless skin!).

Emilie de Ravin chose a more youthful option with a gray frilled Max Azria über mini. I'm not a big fan of the gray chest-netting, but besides that I love the dress, Emilie's hair however, I can not stand, nor understand why she decided to take the 50s bouffant route.

Still following the youthful trend, Amanda Hearst arrived in this adorable yellow, belted Peter Som mini. I simply love yellow dresses, it's like wearing happiness, youth and sunshine and this Peter Som dress does it in a stylish package. The media empire heiress\model paired it with nude platforms that really aided in elongating her legs.

Sticking on the model trend, although I have no idea what the front of Carmen Kass' backless Michael Kors gown, it looks stunning from this angle!

There's something about Czech model Hana Soukupova's white Marchesa mini with black trim and bow detailing that I really like. It's interesting and a little over the top, and would normally hate those sleeves, but somehow she's making it work.

There's nothing overly spectacular about Alino Cho's asymmetrical bias cut, striped gown (shown with MAC Cosmetics President John Demsey), and yet I really like it and love her over-sized dragon necklace. It's very Miami, and clearly I want to make a trip!

Oh Alexa Chung! Out of everything that Mr. Womanswear Designer of the Year, Marc Jacobs has designed, you chose this? And decided to pair it with those shoes? Sometimes, you look like you're trying way to hard to be unattractive.
