Red Carpet Fashion: CFDA Fashion Awards 2011

The CFDA [Council of Fashion Designers of America] awards were held last night at the Lincoln Center in NYC. Even though these awards are an all encompassing fashion event, I was less than impressed with the outfits that showed up. There were only a few that I enjoyed so this will be a short round up

Katie Cassidy

I need this gal to get another t.v. show stat. She was my favorite character from the Melrose Place reboot (Ella Sims, bitchy and fierce with the most amazing closet - ah just my type) and I enjoyed watching her play the devious Juliet on Gossip Girl (minus that awful hair color she sported the whole season) But alas looks like she's currently unemployed though I hope that changes soon. She showed up last night wearing a fabulous Behnaz Sarafpour cream mini dress and gorgeous Brian Atwood pumps (similar to the ones we saw on Rachel Bilson a few weeks ago) Surprisingly I am gravitating towards simplicity lately but I definitely love this look and her mirrored clutch. Here's a fabulous "Steal Her Look" from the amazing Sole Society:

The Dash pump comes in either Nude or Black and is the perfect go-with-everything pump.

Chanel Iman

The gorgeous Victoria's Secret model Chanel Iman wowed in a turquoise dress from BCBGMAXAZRIA. Her keyhole neck and high slit gives off a very 70's vibe and we know how much I love that! The color is fabulous for spring and I need those platform gold shoes ASAP! All in all this is perfection.

And that's it! Between all the designers, models and celebs I thought this would be a hard pick of litter. Turns out it wasn't that exciting. Is there another style that you loved? I love hearing your picks for best [and worst too!] Also here is a list of the winners from last night:
