KRIS Likes… The 2012 CFDA Awards

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” – Coco Chanel

The Council of Fashion Designers of America (otherwise known as the CFDA), celebrated 50’s years at this years award show held at Lincoln Center.  Often called the “Oscars of Fashion”,  the cities fashion elite gather each year for the CFDA Awards and for this reason, it is often one of my favorite red carpets of the year.  The photos below were taken from Photographer Jamie Beck’s blog From Me to You.  I love the intimate shots she takes.  They give you the feeling of attending an intimate party among close friends.  Her detail shots are also fabulous.  All around I find her photos edgy, artistic, classic and fresh!


The dress above worn by Doutzen Kroes may be my personal favorite of the night

Of course — I am obsessed with anything remotely related to Mad Men!

Another favorite dress from the evening was a Altuzarra dress worn by Kate Bosworth above

Love the Cap Sleeves and Unexpected Hairdo from Mandi Moore (Photo on the Left)

The profile of Karolina Kurkova blows the front view of this outfit out of the water, HOWEVER…. I am still obsessed with these shoes!
