Because sometimes the people that didn’t get invited to the actual event come out dressing better than ever!

The CFDA awards highlights the best of the best in the fashion industry annually. This year, celebrities and the most notable players in the fashion world came out for one of the best dressed events of the year. We’re highlighting our favorite looks below and the winners below that.
Nina Dobrev in Alex Perry
Since 2010, Nina has been on my radar as the one to watch. And now, not only is she on a hit CW television series – Vampire Diaries – she is also making the lists for being a best dressed celebrity. Newly single and with the world ahead of her and her blossoming career, I am excited to see how far she’ll push the boundaries with her red carpet looks.

So we’re a little overdue for a recap post on the CFDA Fashion Awards, but I didn’t want to go on without making a post about it. Every year some of the greatest designers are highlighted along with the best in fashion and some of the most beautiful gowns. Enjoy!

Olivia Wilde in Marchesa
Chocolate brown and gold sequins are the perfect combination for this Golden Globe gown. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen Olivia look this good! I also loved that she wore her hair down with her bangs since we are typically used to seeing it done up.
Internships, like jobs, do not come easy. Designer Donna Karan is auctioning off a week-long internship with her PR department for $3000. While the proceeds are going towards Stephen Gaynor School, a school for those with learning difficulties, something about the idea of that does not sit well with me. Since when did how much money you have become a hiring qualification? Donna Karan, I have to say I’m a little disappointed with your methods. Hiring for an internship is no contest especially not one involving money. It should be merit-based. Maybe I’m just bitter because I have spent my spring break applying to internships and slaving away perfecting my resumes, cover letters, and writing samples.
Well Donna Karan, I’m trying hard not to judge you, but I hope your intern winner is a disaster in your department because you’re giving your week-long internship only to someone who can afford it, but does not deserve it.
What you’ve all been waiting for!
Anna Kendrick in Elie Saab Couture – 4.5
Big things are about to happen for Anna in terms of her acting career and her appearance on the red carpet. It’s too bad that Up in the Air did not win any Oscars last night because that is one of my favorite movies from last year and she was great in it. This gown is beautiful. I’m glad she didn’t go overboard with it. Only thing I would change would be the shoes.
