The 10th Annual CFDA/Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards for 2011 were handed out tonight at the Alice Tully Hall in the Lincoln Center New York City. And the Red Carpet Star of the Night was none other than Miss Lady Gaga. Miss Gaga was being honored as "Fashion Icon" and she was on hand to accept her award. She wore a teal pageboy wig and Mugler high-low gown.
And to no one's surprise: Some SERIOUS platform boots (above). I have to say, she looked kinda SEXY!!! I've never thought of Lady Gaga as sexy but huney! She done BROUGHT IT, with this ensemble! Live for this moment darling. Live for it.
Jessica Alba: 30 year old--and very pregnant, actress Jessica Alba wore a two-toned custom empire-waisted and drop-shouldered Diane Von Furstenberg gown in peach and purple silk Habotai. I will not say anything nasty about a pregnant woman so I will say, Jessica Alba looked "Pretty". Love the color combination.
Chloe Sevigny: Rumor has it that what she wore is a "Sneak Peak" of her new line for Opening Ceremony. It was a black ruffled leather plunging neck top and eyelet pencil skirt with a peplum. Loved it. Modern, chic, you-go-Chloe! Love the black-and-white shoes.
Kirsten Dunst: Kirsten wore a black with turquoise blue shawl collared tuxedo suit with matching UBER skinny pants from NYC-based CFDA 2008, 2009, 2010 Swarovski Award for Menswear Nominee Designer Patrik Ervell. She accessorized with Prada shoes and slicked back up-do mini-bun hairstyle. I like seeing this more "androgynous" side of Kirsten. It's very Euro. Her tiny frame can really handle this super skinny and super fitted look.
Lucy Liu: Liu wore a black strapless gown by LA-based/shows-in-NY-only designer Monique Lhuillier. It was, dare I say it, A BIT much! This was more of an Oscars gown as opposed to CFDA Awards. Leave the big gown moments to Miss Lady Gaga--or Cannes. I have to say that unfortunately, this was a bit of a MISS for me...I think Lucy thought she was at Cannes but somehow forgot...
Marcia Cross: Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross went the complete opposite of her Bree Hodge character for the 2011 CFDA Awards. She went DISCO Happy, wearing a halter neckline jumpsuit (they are ALL THE RAGE kids!) from designer Pamela Rolland. I think she looked rather HOT! If you're going to wear a sequined 1979-inspired jumpsuit, it should be for the CFDA's. Seriously.
