To clarify: Not all models off duty dress fabulously. The standard uniform for the past couple years has been biker jackets, skinny jeans and biker boots – sexy at first, until it got boring. This season several of the top girls are breaking the mold, wearing more layers and texture, mixing up skirts and pants and interesting coats. Natasha Poly and Sasha Pivovarova, just off the Chanel runway, exemplify the look that Lagerfeld showed for the Fall 2011 collection, as Style.com‘s Tim Blanks put it: “mixing the street with enough high fashion fantasy to make the result seem rich and strange.”
One great thing about a black tie event for the fashion industry? You’ll never be bored. Guests at the Swarovski-sponsored CFDA Awards last night wore daring, dazzling looks with no worries of playing it safe for the mass media, since this 7th Avenue version of the Oscars is a little more sheltered than the Hollywood event. That’s not to say the women and men here weren’t elegantly dressed: fabulous gowns and tuxes abounded, but look closely and you’ll see towering shoes, short hemlines and plunging necklines that really pushed the envelope in terms of what works for the red carpet.
Sarah Jessica Parker created the biggest stir of the night in a gorgeous, art nouveau-style Alexander McQueen gown. She presented a Board of Directors Special Tribute Award to the late designer at the ceremony.
