2009 Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards

The CDFA awards were held last night at Lincoln Center in NYC. What I would give to attend this ceremony and to ogle at the designers that I have long admired and their beautiful designs worn by celebrities and models alike! Attendees included Michael Kors, Heidi Klum, Esteban Cortazar, Rachel Zoe, Whitney Port, Olivia Palermo, and many others. Below are some of my favorite dresses; however, my #1 pick goes to Ashley Olsen's vintage 1930s orange gown. It's so simple and sophisticated, yet the bold colors and silhouette really make a statement. Major winners included Rodarte, Marc Jacobs and his work for Louis Vuitton, and Proenza Schouler. To see a list of what they won and more, see below! What do you think of this year's winners?
