The CFDA Awards have come and gone once more. Some fabulous people were in attendance. SJP rocked a flow-y McQueen gown, Rachel Zoe in a shimmery, deep blue number, while Carmen Kass showed up in a gown with a deep back that clearly stated to me that girlfriend needs a burger and FAST. While I’ll continue why she’s even a relevant model, we’ll move on to the awards.
The Winners of the 2010 CFDA Awards:
Womenswear Designer of the Year: Marc Jacobs – Marc continues to impress and is wonderful. Is there anything to hate about his clothes?

Swarovski Womenswear Designer of the Year: Jason Wu
Swarovski Menswear Designer of the Year: Richard Chai
Swarovski Accessories Designer of the Year: Alexander Wang

CFDA Board of Directors’ Special Tribute Award: Alexander McQueen – Apparently the tribute began with SJP and then there was a runway of the latest collection. Long live McQueen.
Dear, dear Legs McGee. Can’t you mix it up a bit? While I do love this Marchesa dress, in love with it, I’m simply tired. Pick a new card next time. You are always showing leg and boob together. Pick one or go home darling. It’s a bit overplayed.
I see vampires can’t pull of haute couture, Bella. I thought Alice would choose better clothes for you, am I right?!
Jessica Biel, I want you to go away and never come back. There is a reason why I didn’t purchase your Vogue cover and just took it from my friend’s apartment complex. You are BOOOORRRRIIIINNNNGGGG and I don’t like you. You look disheveled and like you don’t care. If so, go home and never show your face again. I’m sure 7th Heaven is waiting for a reunion special of sorts in the future.
Renee, why such robotic and manly shoulders you have. I kid, but seriously. How predictable was this Carolina Herrera gown? You should really learn how to pose.
I love YSL, but this just didn’t cut it, January. You look like a mess. Better luck next time.
Gaga, why are you disappointing me?! First you don’t walk the red carpet in what could have been awesome Prada, but you decide to wear this tacky wig and Mr. Armani created this nude, jeweled bodysuit I’m fairly certain I’ve seen Brit Brit wear on more than one occasion. Yawn.
Tina, I don’t get the joke.
My, my Mr. Wang. What did you dress M.I.A. in?! It’s like a gold spiderweb of crazy. I don’t even know what to say.
Why is does Teen Vogue seem to appreciate models more than Vogue? Kind of. Vogue has it’s normals on the covers plus the normal Hollywood stars and I guess Teen Vogue does as well, but they put at least Chanel Iman, they had Jourdan Dunn, and they have Karlie now on the cover. They love Karlie it seems and we share that love as well for this sweet, but fierce young girl that needs to be seen everywhere. She’s only 17 and amazeballs is only a word that would be putting it lightly. I’m glad they chose this YSL with strawberry print for the cover. It’s young, fresh, and fun and what cover would be better to display such work, although I don’t know of any “real” teenage girl that can afford anything with Yves Saint Laurent on the label, but isn’t that just the point? These clothes, the YSL, the Alexander Wang, they’re there to give girls inspiration on ways to dress, not necessarily having the power to purchase these designer duds is the point. It’s all in your sense and imagination. Anyway, check out the photos of this rising model that you should love too!
