Hamish Bowles in a Swarovski Crystal Bow Tie, 2012 CFDA Awards

As usual, Hamish Bowles takes the award for best in men’s fashion. At the 2012 CFDA Awards, sponsored by Swarovski, he wore a Swarovski crystal bow tie with his tux. The magenta socks are the icing on the cake.

Jessica Paré in Jason Wu, 2012 CFDA Awards

I am completely obsessed with Mad Men actress Jessica Paré. She had me at “Zou Bisou Bisou.” And she looked just as amazing in person when she walked the red carpet at this week’s CFDA Awards in this beaded black and fuchsia Jason Wu dress. Cute but edgy, much like her character on the show. The tassel earrings are by Eddie Borgo, another CFDA nominee.

Garance Doré and Scott Schuman, 2012 CFDA Awards

One of the issues many people have with black tie dressing: they get all dolled up in a style that doesn’t look anything like the way they normally dress. So it was refreshing to see Garance Doré and Scott Schuman looking like their normal selves to receive the CFDA media award, only even more fabulous. Garance wore a green Derek Lam dress, a nice, cheerful flash of color on the red carpet, and Scott a Dior tux. Congrats for the award, and especially for keeping it clean when so many other bloggers blur the line between editorial and advertising.

Jessica Stam in Jason Wu, 2012 CFDA Awards

Lace was a big motif in the spring collections and also on the CFDA red carpet. Designer Jason Wu’s sheer blue silk crepe gown with a black lace underlay looked super sexy and glamorous on model Jessica Stam.

Arizona Muse in Diane von Furstenberg, 2012 CFDA Awards

Model Arizona Muse wore head-to-toe Diane von Furstenberg to the CFDA Awards. The silver puffer paisley dress and knee-high boots were particularly refreshing since this mod look runs completely counter to the rather tired mermaid dress trend. Like Arizona herself, this DVF outfit is a breath of fresh air.

Tabitha Simmons and Karen Elson in Proenza Schouler, 2012 CFDA Awards

Tabitha Simmons’ shoes have become a big favorite for celebs walking the red carpet, so it’s no surprise that the designer herself looked perfectly at ease in the same environment. The designer and former model, who won the Swarovski award for accessory design, wore a Proenza Schouler jacket and dress and shoes of her own design, as did model Karen Elson, in a green Proenza Schouler ensemble. These were two of my favorite red carpet looks of the night – elegant but daring.

Hilary Rhoda in Rebecca Minkoff, 2012 CFDA Awards

Rebecca Minkoff may have been nominated for a CFDA award in accessory design, but it was her dress that really wowed on last night’s red carpet. Model Hilary Rhoda wore this fabulous blue Rebecca Minkoff dress to the 2012 CFDA Awards. The vivid color, the complex structure and sexy cutouts all combine for a modern bombshell effect.

Girl With an Insect Pin, En Route to the Met Ball

An oversize insect pin conjured up the surrealist designs of Elsa Schiaparelli on this guest en route to the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute Gala. A white silk dress and gray fur provide the perfect neutral but elegant backdrop.

One-Shoulder Gown, Outside the Mark Hotel

Not everyone who was beautifully dressed for the Met Ball was a movie star. I loved this one-shoulder gown with a vivid, gold flecked print outside the Mark Hotel – so glamorous and feminine.

Met Gala: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Burberry

Model and Transformers star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley left the Mark Hotel last night en route to the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute gala. The face of Burberry Body, she naturally wore Burberry – a long, beaded bronze and black striped gown with long sleeves. It was such an elegant look, made more so by the classic updo and Irene Neuwirth earrings. And the man on her arm who’s photographing the crowd of photographers? That’s Mario Testino.
