2012 CFDA (NYC) Awards Style Picks

The CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards 2012 at the Lincoln Center, NYC, showed off the best emerging and established designers and gave attendees a chance to show off their style.

Here are my Style Picks for CFDA 2012:


Karolina Kurkova (Tommy Hilfiger) This "safari-inspired" number reminds me of that scarf material that your grandma kept folded in the top drawer. And for some reason I completely love it. However grabbing on to her dress and yelling "I love you Grandma!!" will probably get you turfed out of any place in New York City, I don't care who you are.


Anna Wintour (Marc Jacobs) This outfit is warm and autumnal, and it's the kind of orangey/red that looks great on a select number of people. And something about it screams "festive wrapping paper" but in a good way.


Busy Phillips (Martin Margiela) This jumpsuit/scarf matches beautifully with the Brian Atwood shoes / Christian Louboutin clutch and shows that black can be daring, too. Perhaps black is the new black.


Dakota Fanning (Proenza Schouler) My vote for best dressed goes to Dakota Fanning in a kimono-inspired wrap/dress thingy. Opinion is divided as to whether this is a hit or miss. For me, the answer is simple, it's a hit. And props for taking a risk.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's "The Row" won the womenswear designer of the year award. Emerging talent awards went to Tabitha Simmons, Joseph Altuzarra and Phillip Lim. Billy Reid won in the menswear category and Reed Krakoff won in the accessories category.
