Only amazing things can happen when Anna Wintour and Diana Von Furstenburg join forces. Notable fashion faces like Rachel Roy, Karlie Kloss and celebs Dakota Fanning and Toby Macguire were out in droves to attend the Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund awards ceremony. The dual project brings together promising designers all competing for the coveted and highly sought after prize.. Winner Greg Chait took home the opportunity of a lifetime along with $300,000 and a yearlong mentor-ship from an industry vet. Though his name may be unknown to us now but joining the ranks of previous awardees Alexander Wang and Joseph Altuzarra, that won’t last for long. Delivering the keynote speech was Burberry’s creative director Christopher Bailey who reminded the finalists that “it’s OK not to fit in.” I can imagine it was a feel good night for fashion– another great mind on the rise.
Among all the great vibes and inspirational anecdotes buzzing around the event, naturally there was also fabulous fashion. Take a look at some of our favorite looks!
For some reason we suspect this gal will be a regular on our best dressed list. Looking simply chic in a Burberry Prorsum S’ 2013 skirt, Emma Stone is refined and sophisticated while still young and fresh. She’s glowing for goodness sakes!
The starlet looks dainty and refined in a pink Jason Wu peplum dress.
Clearly sleek and simple was the motto for the night. Designer Erin Fetherston looks rather springy in this orange ombré gown.
Christopher Bailey & Anna Wintour
What can you say about Anna and her fabulousness without sounding repetitive? Iconic cut, belted trench (with mysterious goodness hiding underneath), and a nude heel — what more can you ask for? Christopher also looks quite sharp and cool wearing black denim and a tuxedo jacket.
Classic, classic, and more classic. The dress’ silhouette makes Gwendoline look modern while the hint of jewelry adds a bit of glam. Absolutely love it!
Hands down. Favorite look. No questions asked. J. Crew creative director, Jenna Lyon emulates that on-the-go city girl we were drooling over in the brands Fall 2012 lookbook. Someone needs to bottle and sell this level of style.
Lauren Santo Domingo
Always stylish, Lauren looks elegant with a bit of sex appeal in this white lace dress. Effortless style wins again.
Rachel Roy and Louise Roe
There had to be a spring wear dress code or something at this shindig. Both women looked fresh and fabulous even though we’re not huge fans of the wide leg crop and think Louise should have excersied the Chanel rule (the headband or the jumbo necklace can go).
