Best Modest of CFDA Awards

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

Ahh. The magic of the red carpet. Who can resist? Even if you're the spit up embellished sweatshirt type, what woman doesn't enjoy the fantasy of the fabulous fashion of a glamorous night out. 

Just last night, on the red carpet of the MTV Music Awards, there was nary a modestly styled frock (at least in my humble opinion). But oh those music people, they're in a totally different world than the CFDA people. These are the people that make our fashion and live in the industry. Is it an industry of depth and meaning? Not much. But a girl's got to get dressed. And once in while it's OK step into a fantasy world of pretty people and things....always keeping in mind that our real lives are, if not always glamorous, full of meaning...and maybe some spit up. And we're always so glad to go back to it! 

But for now, what's the harm in taking a moment to enjoy the creativity, especially of some of the more modest styles from the red carpet. 

Note: I temporarily broke my rule of only showing dresses with sleeves because I felt that some of the most gorgeous styles from this evening would be perfectly modest and elegant if only they were sleeved. So why miss out on the fashion inspiration? And that's what shells are for ;)

For those of your inclined...just add sleeves and create your own amazing dresses. The styles below are truly fabulous!!

  6. Thanks so much for sharing, Hun! I love looking at red carpet fashion and glamour. :) I could sit and examine how they wore the dress and how they applied their makeup all day long! I love dissecting the look. I think Crystal Renn and many others looked fabulous!
    Beautiful! Thanks for sharing, Hun!

  7. I'm loving #7 and of Tory Burch! Thanks for sharing on Monday Mingle and have a great week. xoxo Nicole

  8. Is that Rachel Zoe in #3? Looks like she's either pregs again, or maybe just didn't get the "red carpet pose" right -hmmm. Also, is it just me or do the Olsen twins look weighed down with too much fabric and too old handbags? While I'm on a roll...Lauren Hutton looks too masculine! All of their bodies are too gorgeous to hide!

  9. they all look pretty nice to me Hard to say one I don't like actually
    Would have been nice if this was televised but from what I read, it went pretty fast.
