There’s nothing like an awards show to warm the cockles of my heart. It gives me a chance to put forth the I MEAN…WHAT?!? Not Best Dressed List. And last night, the CFDA Awards did not disappoint. There were some mini doozies…but doozies, just the same. It is probably best that I MEAN..WHAT?!? put out the Not Best Dressed List since we are not “true” fashion insiders and objectivity is the key. A “true” fashion insider is not likely to say something like, “What the hell was Aerin Lauder wearing, doesn’t she own a mirror?” because a true fashion insider will need to kiss up to Aerin for future sponsorship. They will do what every other true fashion insider does…which is air kiss her on both cheeks and say, “Aerin darling, you look fantastic. Who dressed you?” What’s great about the I MEAN…WHAT?!? Not Best Dressed Awards is that we are not afraid to say what we think, whereas the true fashion insider would fear losing their place at the table next season, or worse, their spot on “The List”. Heaven forbid…they would sooner die. And I quote Rachel Zoe here, “I die, I die, D-I-E.” Unlike the Costume Institute Gala, this is a simpler affair..ish. Yes, there are plenty of gowns, but the temperature is always set by her royal highness, Anna Wintour, who wore a lovely Carolina Herrera cocktail length dress, which was most fitting. So now, without any further ado, and in no particular order, here are my selects of those who really have made the largest faux pas on Earth…looking…well…let’s just say…not your best…at New York’s premiere fashion event. All is forgiven.
Who gets your vote for not best dressed?
