2009 CFDA Awards

The fashion world's Oscars, a.k.a. the CFDA Awards, was held on Monday at Lincoln Center. The place was teeming with starving models and fashion designers, and here's what some of them wore.

Actress Blake Lively wore a simple hot pink Michael Kors dress, a far more age-appropriate and less-slutty look than the one she wore at the Met's Costume Institute Gala.

Model Doutzen Kroes wore Zac Posen. It's a bit over-the-top, as Posen is wont to be. I find it tacky.

Heidi Klum in Michael Kors. Although she seems a bit matchy-matchy, I think it's a typical Heidi look.

Model Lydia Hearst is wearing Marc Bouwer. I think she looks like she should be auditioning for an ice dancing competition. Or maybe a part as a fairy in the Hobbit movie. She looks so fragile and skinny in that diaphanous material.

Maggie Grace wears Christian Siriano. I like it.

Molly Simms wears a Dolce & Gabbana Marilyn Monroe-print dress. I think she pulls it off, but wished she had done something more with her hair. It looks like she just came home from the gym and only had time to throw on the dress.

Padma Lakshmi wears a lovely J. Mendel gown that is far too long, and jewelry from her own line. Apparently peach/skintone is the new black.

Fabiola Beracasa is wearing Proenza Schouler under a horrible feathered cape and with purple suede booties. What was she thinking? She looks like a crazy person.

Robert Tagliapietra and Jeffrey Costello of Costello Tagliapietra (catchy) dressed as pot-bellied lumberjack bears.

The Lauren offspring - David, Dylan, and Andrew, dressed appropriately for the occasion, in tuxedos and a gown.

Meanwhile, Daddy Ralph only had time to dress his upper half, and Mommy Ricky Lauren borrowed something from Michael Jackson to go with her casual white jeans and platform wedges.
