Gigi Hadid in gold Michael Kors at the CFDAs: 1970s glam or dated fug?


The CFDA Awards were held last night. It’s sort of like the Met Gala only it’s a pretty traditional red carpet and it really is about the designers and their work and their muses. So, obviously, a lot of fashion girls came out to celebrate their favorite designers. I’m breaking these photos up into two posts! First, let’s start with Gigi Hadid, who got a lot of attention for being one of the few women in the world with the ability to rock the hell out of a jumpsuit/onesie. This is by Michael Kors, who has been doing sort of an ode of 1970s Halston lately. It works here. It works really well. How in the world is Leonardo DiCaprio not all over Gigi?


Victoria Beckham in her own label – Posh is sort of like Liz Hurley to me at this point, like I don’t even pay attention to what she’s wearing because it all looks the same. That being said, this dress is decent.


Ashley Judd in Badgley Mischka. This seems like a very “beauty queen” look for this event.


Karlie Kloss in Diane Von Furstenberg polka dots. She wore flats! I’m not big into polka dots but this is okay. My only problem is that the plunging neckline doesn’t suit her.


Jemima Kirke was one of my worst-dressed! She wore this completely unflattering Rosie Assoulin two-piece gown. Bad, bad, bad. The lipstick shade is terrible too.


Vanessa Hudgens wore a boring Sachin & Babi NOIR mullet dress.


Taraji P. Henson in custom Vera Wang. This is a great look! Great color for her and a very flattering design.


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. OMG. They look like they’re in their 60s. They also look like they’re trying to ape Cara Delevingne’s Angry Baby eyebrows.

    I will never understand why this girl is a thing.

    I noticed MK is covering up her neck. Wonder if this was a decision made after the Met Gala photos came out.

    • Loopy says:

      All these girls are connected and come from rich and powerful families. The Hiltons, The Richards, The Hadids(though I think Bella does not get enough credit she is an exotic beauty), Cara D,ugh The Kardashian and Jenner girls. They have money and control the media because in the real work not half of them would have been offered these opportunities, In they all have family or parental ties some how, so its one giant pool of nepotism.

      • Bridget says:

        Nepotism opened doors for these girls, but a huge part of their success (especially with Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid) is their very strong social media presence. They’re social media superstars, with huge followings on Twitter & Instagram as well as a significant presence on gossip/entertainment sites, so hiring them automatically results in free press as their images are circulated above and beyond where ad space is purchased.

      • Norman Bates' Mother says:

        @Bridget – and that’s something I don’t understand. I get that part about media being interested, but not their social media superstatus. I checked their social media presence and there’s nothing in there that would justify it. All they ever post about are clothes, make-up, partying or re-posting the nice things other people or press write about them – all vanity and no substance. And they have several million followers – for what? If they were any other vain and pretty teenager with no connections, who posts this kind of stuff, no one besides their high school clique would have noticed.

      • Bridget says:

        I have no idea why young women (because that’s who’s following them, right?) think they’re so fascinating and worth following. But follow they do. Though I disagree with your statement that if they weren’t famous and well connected no one would notice. YouTube, Vine and Instagram are filled with regular folks who have managed to build significant followings, many of whom are just as lacking in substance. The medium lends itself to emptiness.

    • LoloJo says:

      Wait, I must have missed something (and I don’t like missing gossip!). What Met Gala photos?

    • JenniferJustice says:

      I don’t know about her neck at the Met Gala, but I know there were surgery rumours based on MK looking considerably different on some red carpet in November 2014. See:

      • Kitten says:

        It could be surgery..or something else…

      • Sarah says:

        That picture with MK, Sarkosy and his daughter is just sick.

      • jwoolman says:

        They are fraternal twins, not identical. It’s not unusual for fraternal twins especially to look more different as they age. Differences in weight, fat distribution, diet, exercise, other habits can all contribute to a widening gap.

        The pics of them as children and young teens emphasize that their gaunt look is not natural for them. They started restricting their food by the time they were 16, judging from things they were saying in a documentary around that age. The effects became more apparent by the time they were 17-18. Drug use would also have an impact, but they mainly just weren’t eating enough before that. If one of them eats more normally, she will quite naturally start to look very different than her twin. Likewise if she doesn’t use the same drugs or amounts of drugs/alcohol.

    • Suzanne says:

      I couldn’t agree more. Her own mother looks better than her NOW…This kid is famous because Daddy has deep deep pockets….Somebody is getting paid to promote this kid as she is pretty ordinary looking to me…

    • Skyblue says:

      I don’t get it either. I think Gigi looks like Fergie sans Josh Duhamel.

  2. mia girl says:

    Hadid looks good.

    Did Kirke come with a side of melted butter? She looks like she’s wearing a lobster.

    • Kiddo says:

      She really pulls off the look.

      • Size Does Matter says:

        I think she is impossibly beautiful. I get the nepotism hate and all, but she is gorgeous and really looks great in that jumpsuit. Oh, to be a rich, beautiful 20-year-old.

  3. QQ says:

    Taraji is the ONLY person im even willing to acknowledge here

    The Olsens Look like dementors

  4. Bridget says:

    Are we going to talk about how strange Mary Kate looks?

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      She looks horrible. Something looks off with her face. It’s got to be that gross stringy dirty hair. They look like they need a major bath and some clean non-bag lady looking clothing.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      They look like a grown up version of the twins from the Shining. And like they don’t feel good. And like they need a shower and a haircut. And like they just ate a giant poopsicle (trademark Mimif and Paolanquar).

      ETA: and why do they always pose like that? They aren’t secretly conjoined, right?

      • Bridget says:

        All the money in the world and they look like they would have no idea how to hold a normal conversation.

        And MK did something weird to her face.

      • paola says:

        ahaah Size!!
        I love you 😀

    • oneshot says:

      It’s telling that Ashley is the one struggling with a chronic and debilitating disease, and MK is STILL the one who looks a good 15 years older than her twin.

      I used to think the early anorexia did a part of the damage, but she went into treatment for it really young, I guess it really did a number on her.

  5. Anare says:

    Love the MK jumpsuit on Gigi. Wow!

    • PunkyMomma says:

      I do, too. I think it’s magnificient!

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      She does look amazing. I would “kill” for a body like that!

    • JenniferJustice says:

      It looks great on her because it fits her perfectly. No bunching, no sagging, no hanging crotch or pinching….just a perfect fit. People can say what they want about her having an auto “in” because of her last name, but she is gorgeous, built, and wears the clothes like nobody else.

  6. Talie says:

    Did Mary Kate have facial work done? Her face look so odd and smashed!

  7. Tracy says:

    Gigi Hadid is officially the only person I have ever, ever, ever seen who looks incredible in a jumpsuit. She is perfect. And I love that she just looks naturally perfect, not too skinny, no tortured makeup, and not ‘just’ pretty — she’s so much better than ‘pretty’. You get the feeling that you’d like her if you knew her. She clearly won the genetic lottery; her mother’s figure is off the charts, too.

    I agree on every other comment made here, except for Vanessa Hudgens. I bet that dress looks beautiful in person, and while I’m not a huge fan of the mullet hem, I suspect that dress looks stunning when she’s walking.

    And so glad to see Victoria Beckham posing without that tortured dropped chin, painful side eye pose she usually uses. It’s so dated, and she looks beautiful here. Now, if we could just get her to lighten up on the too-heavy makeup. As she gets older, she needs to lighten up and just let her natural features show more. Lose the black eyeliner forever. Both Cindy Crawford and Jennifer Lopez have nailed the 40+ makeup.

    • StormsMama says:

      Yes agree: Gigi is gorgeous,looks natural and comfortable, and seems cool. She indeed won the generic lottery.

  8. We Are All Made of Stars says:

    I like it less from the front than when she’s angled to show off her figure to great effect. It’s a lot of tin foil shine, but overall, I think she’s pulling it off. +1 to the person who doesn’t know why she’s a thing. The nepotists used to be designers’ muses, now they’re replacing models?
    I also don’t understand how Posh is a designer. Try to look good, dammit. You’re a designer! Ashley’s dress is very Titanic. On the right person at the right event, this could work. Karlie looks like she bought that at Target. Eh.

  9. missmerry says:

    the makeup in this group of red carpet photos is so off on almost everybody.

    the olsens…bad. it looks like they did their makeup in the dark two days ago…

    jemima…looks like she got punched in the face…

    judd has barbie-pink blush for some reason…

    Kloss has what looks to me like blotchy chest makeup…

    and gigi and victoria just look oily…

  10. Gigi’s jumpsuit reminds me of the upholstery on the chairs in my Aunt’s dining room. Circa 1976. Taraji looks amazing. How are the Olsen’s award winning designers? They always look rumpled and unhappy.

  11. Kiddo says:

    Karlie Kloss is morphing into Taylor Swift is morphing into Karlie Kloss is morphing into…..

  12. Linn says:

    Gigi looks fantastic. A jumpsuit can look stupid pretty easily, but she looks great. Her hair and make-up is on point, too.

  13. paola says:

    The Olsen twins look like the 2 sisters in ‘The tale of tales’.

    Gigi is beautiful. She’s the best looking of the bunch of models ( Kara, Kendall, Karlie and so on ) that strut down the catwalks now thinking that they own the world. Karli Kloss’ smug face needs to go. She looks like a dried plum.

  14. belle de jour says:

    Posh’s could have looked chic with a lower waistline and different accessories & hair.

    Bless Ashley Judd’s heart. They used to sell those vinyl doilies on 14th street.

  15. Nessa says:

    The Olsen twins. WTF?!?!!!!

  16. Jayna says:

    Gigi’s jumpsuit is beyond stunning and was absolute perfection on her. Her hair and makeup were perfect with that outfit. It’s my favorite outfit of the night because it looks so amazing on Gigi’s body. I can’t think of anybody that could have looked that amazing in it. I don’t usually like jumpsuits on anybody, but I’m envious of how she looks in it. I love the silhouette. Kate Hudson could have pulled it off, but that’s about the only other person.

  17. PunkyMomma says:

    Is it me, or is something off re Ashley Judd’s boobage? Like an implant slipped?

  18. Dante says:

    Jemima looks like the faces of meth. What is up?

  19. Neelyo says:

    Jemima Kirke’s makeup makes her look like one of those ‘Celeb Without Teeth’ photos.

  20. meme says:

    Gigi’s young and pretty and can pull off anything. One of the perks of youth. I like Vanessa’s dress but Taraji is FIERCE. She looks amazing. That Jemima person looks ridiculous.

  21. danielle says:

    Jeminas dress isn’t great, but its the makeup that’s REALLY bad.

    Not a fan of celebtants in general but gigi is gorgeous

  22. AlmondJoy says:

    I gotta give it to Taraji. She’s 10 to 20 years older than all these women (except Ashley Judd and VBeckam) and she’s SLAYING.

    Gigi looks gorg in her jumpsuit!

    Vanessa Hudgens looks beautiful as well.

    The Olsen twins look like something straight out of a horror flick, the stuff nightmares are made of 😩

  23. Velvet Elvis says:

    The Olsen twins bring to mind a pair of scary old spinster sisters who live in a creepy Victorian house with an overgrown yard and cats everywhere. Neighborhood kids would dare each other to go ring their doorbell and run.

  24. Jag says:

    Gigi looks fantastic. I am not loving her expression, but perhaps that’s her face?

    All of your other comments are spot-on, too. Totally agree!

  25. mar says:

    Thank goodness Ashley Judd looks good again. I was worried for her.
    i love Taraji, everyone is is MEH…….

  26. boredblond says:

    Just thinking..The Olsens, Victoria B and Kanye are shut in a room..which is first to register any human emotion via facial movement?
    Don’t like any of the looks, but + for the Olsens for wearing ‘suit myself’ flats.

  27. Suzanne says:

    The Olsen twins look like they stepped out of a horror movie…weren’t there twin girls in some horror film not too long ago….? Jesus…what look are they going for…Alfred Hitchcock’s wicked stepdaughters?

  28. megan says:

    Mary Kate is morphing into Sarah Jessica Parker.

  29. Carmen says:

    Henson and Hadid look great. The Olsens look like Morticia Addams on crack.

  30. Debutante says:

    I think Gigi Hadid is truly beautiful. Wealthy parents aside, This girl is a MODEL ~ she may have gotten farther faster because of her connections, but she has the goods !
    She looks amazing in that jumpsuit !!

    The Olsen twins both look terrible ~~~ ! And why do they look so fricking OLD ???

    Also, Emmy Rossum from Shameless looks impossibly gorgeous !

  31. Iheartgossip says:

    When I first saw the photo thought it was Fergy Ferg.

  32. Nonny says:

    Mary Kate and Ashley. If the creepy twins from The Shining grew up………….
