The CFDA Awards

This week the annual CFDA Awards were held.  These are the awards of the fashion industry.  Designers, models, celebrities, fashion elite, were all out in full force for a major fashion show down!  A few big winners of this year included:
Womenswear Designer of the Year - Marc Jacobs
Menswear Designer of the Year - Rag and Bone
Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award - Michael Kors
Accessory Designer of the Year - Alexis Bittar
International Award - Christopher Bailey for Burberry
There was also a very special tribute to Alexander McQueen.
But down to the important part of the event, who was there and what were they wearing?!  Here are a few of my favourites..
Rachel Zoe
Because she is my queen, I must start my fashion report with her! Rachel Zoe looked gorgeous and fashionable, as always in a Marc Jacobs blue sparkly dress! Just love her!
Anna Wintour
It wouldn't be the fashion awards without the queen of the fashion world, Anna Wintour. Love this classic and elegant number!
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
From little sitcom stars to Fashionistas, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are one of a kind. I've always been a huge fan and they are featured here in their very own collection 'Row'.
Whitney Port
Whitney looks gorgeous as always in this David Meister gown. Not the type of gown that would suit everyone, but of course if someone can pull it off, it's Whitney!
Gwyneth Paltrow with Michael Kors
Designer Michael Kors with Gwyneth Paltrow wearing yes a Michael Kors Gown. She looks stunning in this sparkly elegant number. And Michael Kors doesn't look too bad himself!
Dakota Fanning
This is one of my favourite dresses of the day. It's pretty, feminine and Marchesa of course! Also love the Jen Behr headpiece, really compliments the dress.
Model Jessica Stam
One of my favourite models Jessica Stam wearing this simple, yet elegant number by Giambattista Valli.
Model Constance Jablonski with designers Ken Kaufman and Issac Franco 
Another one of my favourite models Constance Jablonski seen here with designers Ken Kaufman and Issac Franco and of course wearing this pretty, glamorous and cute piece from their collection Kaufman Franco.
Ed Westwick
Any excuse for a little Chuck Bass will do! I think this ensemble is flawless. I love how he has made the suit look rough and edgy with the shirt unbuttoned and the sunnies, complimented with his rugged facial appearance.
Diane Von Furstenberg
Love designer Diane Von Furstenberg and here she is gracing the awards in one of her own numbers. I think it really suits her.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker in an Alexander McQueen gown.  The print looks stunning and she looks amazing.
Alexis Bledal with designer Behnaz Sarafpour
This is one of my favourite dresses by Behnaz Sarafpour and who better to wear it than Alexis Bledal.  Love the silhouette, fabric, metallic colour and accessories.  She looks stunning and gorgeous!
Doutzen Kroes
This Michael Kors number is so elegant, classic and gorgeous and looks amazing on model Doutzen Kroes.  Michael Kors' silhouettes are always really flattering.
Gaby Karen de Felice and Donna Karen
Both in Donna Karen of course!  Love the colour palette and the elegant and flattering drapery. 
Hana Soukupova
Any excuse for more Marchesa!  I absolutely love this dress.  It's cute and feminine and even has a bow, but at the same time has the little edge channelling the cut out trend.  And love those shoes.
Marc Jacobs
Because he is the womenswear designer of the year I had to include him!!
