2008 Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards: The Yays and Nays

Oh, you know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder - granted!

One never really knows what to expect the attendees to adorn themselves in when awards are given out at a fashion event. With the exception of the high water trend [post below], (which by the way I'm understanding since posting is all the rage in Europe and even the streets of NYC - who woulda thunk it) all faired pretty well. Well, with a few definite misses ...

The Faves

  • Zani Gugelmann, in Peter Som for Bill Blass, with Rafé Totengco
  • Famke Janssen in David Meister
  • Bergdorf Goodman's Linda Fargo
  • Monique Lhuillier, in her own design, with Tom Bugbee

Here are our yays and nays of the night. Feel free to post your own thoughts and comments as you please - xo


  • Carolina Herrera and Calvin Klein, presumably in their own designs
  • Jill Hennessy, in Nicole Miller
  • David Lauren with Lauren Bush, in Ralph Lauren
  • Hilary Rhoda, in Proenza Schouler
  • Vogue's Sylvana Soto-Ward, in Jay Ahr, with Olivia Chantecaille, in Jason Wu, and Jason Wu

  • Dries Van Noten with Sylvie Picquet, in his design


  • Maggie Gyllenhaal, in Proenza Schouler
  • Julie Macklowe and Robert Burke
  • Erin Wasson and Alexander Wang, in his design (even w/o the crutches and cast this is a no-go for me)
  • Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer, in Proenza Schouler (would you think she had a fashion empire at her disposal?)
  • Donna Karan, in her own design
  • Laura Mulleavy, Mandy Moore, and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte
  • Vera Wang (I adore Vera, but those pieces on the front take away from the beauty of her gown)
  • Jane Lauder
