I love a good red carpet, and we’ve had plenty of those lately (2012 Cannes Film Festival, Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, 2012 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS, 2012 MTV Movie Awards, and the 2012 CFDA Awards) but there’s something especially fun about the red carpet for a musical event. Musicians tend to push the fashion boundaries more than actors do, which can lead to quite the pectacle for us to enjoy.
You’ve got to admit, Miss Carrie knows what works for her! She’s got a great figure and while she loves to wear romantic floor-length gowns, she knows the power of a sparkly mini for a country event.
You can see the stunning pale blue Oscar de la Renta gown that Carrie wore to the 2012 Billboard Music Awards a few weeks ago over here. She definitely knows how to keep us on our toes!
The new face of Donna Karan wore a sequin and feather adorned nude dress by who else, Donna Karan Atelier.
This gold Reem Acra gown is gorgeous! I love that she picked a dress that makes her look statuesque for her hosting duties.
This is a great, simple look for the band. Nothing too wild and crazy, just black & white basics. Well done.

The CFDA Awards were held Monday night and there were all sorts of highlights – from gorgeous red carpet dresses to fun announcements to an after party that just wouldn’t quit.
I swear, there was nothing else on my Twitter feed for HOURS.
Breathtaking. Sleek and sexy evening wear at its finest. I love that she didn’t wear a necklace and let the dress’ neckline take center stage. I also adored her strappy heels and cocktail rings. Perfection!
His tuxedo is classic and dapper, while she’s a vision in her eye-catching Eastern inspired dress.
Designer Olivier Theyskens and his gorgeous date Constance looked great together despite their height difference. Her dress is gorgeous, I love embellished 60’s style shift dresses and this one is gorgeous!
This Lela Rose gown is unique and eye-catching. I love that she wore something different and interesting. It suited her really well and she looked beautiful!
Fun, funky & totally unique. Just what I love about Taylor Tomasi Hill. And apparently she picked everything & got ready at the last-minute. How cool is that?
And if you’re a lover of prints and patterns on the red carpet, there were a handful of ladies who impressed and really brought the drama in that department Monday.
What did you think of Dakota’s Eastern-inspired Proenza Schouler dress? I bet it looked like a work of art in person, the attention to detail is pretty astonishing.
Definitely eye-catching! I love high-necks on dresses, I think it adds a sense of drama that a plunging neckline simply cannot.
I love women who dare to wear cocktail-length frocks on a red carpet filled with gowns, I think it’s a great way to make sure everyone is really taking a look at your dress choice. This look is busy busy busy with mixed patterns, an embellished neckline, and two-toned strappy heels, but she makes it work.

Clearly a good time was had by all!
I love to see the serious and intense fashion insiders letting loose and really enjoying themselves at events like this one. It’s a great reminder of how much fun fashion is and what an amazing opportunity these kinds of celebrations can be.
My blogger crush The Man Repeller (left) with designer Rebecca Minkoff and model Hilary Rhoda. Blues are definitely in!
P.S. You should definitely check out The Man Repeller, Rebecca Minkoff, and Hilary Rhoda’s hysterical “Call Me Maybe” music video that they made while getting ready for this event.
Beautiful designers in their beautiful designs!
Fashion is frequently about the past meeting the present, and here’s the personification of that concept – Fashion icon Lauren Hutton with new designers and CFDA winners Ashley & Mary-Kate Olsen.
Can’t forget our boys! From traditional suits to tuxedos with a twist to white linen, they definitely clean up nice!

Or you can see my choice for the best dressed individual of the night in lacy black Marc Jacobs…
