There were plenty of celebrities at the annual CFDA Awards (including Lady Gaga in, um, a very cheeky ensemble), but four glamorous women in particular really shined in DVF!
A very pregnant Jessica Alba was divine and darling in a custom Ethyl Gown while walking the red carpet with Creative Director Yvan Mispelaere. She later took to the stage to present In Style‘s Hal Rubenstein with the Founder’s Award in Honor of Eleanor Lambert. (They became friends while touring China for Diane’s “Journey of a Dress” exhibition!)
Fellow actress Carla Gugino shimmied the night away in a black Ariel gown from the Fall 2011 collection. “Everyone here looks so beautiful,” she noted at the ceremony. “You feel silly even saying it but then it’s so true!”
Meanwhile model Karolina Kurkova also chose a sequin look – the green Melania Jumper, which was also from the fall collection. (Perhaps it helped inspire her to sing a few lines of “Paparazzi” while at the podium?) Let it be known that KK did not take off her hood for the entire evening!
Soulful songstress Estelle rounded out the quartet in a floor-sweeping gold Isadora gown. This is the second time she’s worn DVF this month!
The CFDAs are considered the Oscars of fashion, so it was fitting that DVF was aptly represented!
