Kendall Jenner in Alexandre Vauthier at the CFDAs: feathered fug or cute?

CFDA 2018 New York set 1

Here are more photos from last night’s CFDAs, the awards for the Council of Fashion Designers of America. The CFDAs have increasingly become a bigger and bigger deal, so I wasn’t surprised to see that they got a good turnout of celebrities, models, fashion designers and… Kardashian-Jenners. Kendall Jenner was there, wearing this Alexandre Vauthier feather dress. I love how we’re not supposed to say anything about how Kendall has tweaked her face, don’t you?

Gigi Hadid in Versace. This is awful. It looks like a pair of Nike leggings morphed into a catsuit.

Naomi Campbell in Calvin Klein. Naomi can work a dress, but this makes her look pregnant.

Martha Hunt in Thom Browne. I actually can’t believe how bad this dress is.

It takes a certain kind of coloring to pull off this color dress, and I’m not sure Irina Shayk has that coloring. This is Diane von Furstenberg. I don’t find it cute in the least – it’s like they were trying to find the ugliest fabric.

Emily Ratajkowski in Brock Collection. She looks crazy-thin and facially, she and Kendall are basically twins now.

Lili Reinhart in Brock Collection. Ugh… this was a sheet set from the Shabby Chic era.

Sarah Paulson in Brock Collection. This is a really cute summer dress for, like, a low-key garden party or something. Not really for the CFDAs.

    All of these are awful. Kendall’s is like a mash of Big Bird and Miss Havisham.

    • Rachel in August says:

      Was gong to say, looks like someone shot a Muppet!

      Actually Emily’s dress is the least offensive I think. The rest are hideous.

    • Big Bertha says:

      My bathroom mat and my cat’s blankie mated and had a baby. Kendall is rocking it.

  2. grabbyhands says:

    Every single one of these is awful and Ken-dull looks like she scalped a muppet.

  3. sally says:

    I can tell Kendall has done something (things?) to her face but I can’t quite put my finger on it! Cam someone tell me? Haha.

    • Babs says:

      She sewn a whole new face over hers. Looks good but there’s a dejà vu about it.

    • Livethelifeaquatic says:

      Botox between the brows, see how they are lifted? Fillers in lips and around eyes. Not a good look for someone so young.

    • LeaTheFrench says:

      Lips definitely. But also the nose, no? In older pictures her nose seems to have a much larger bridge.

    • Eva says:

      Nose, brow lift, fillers in her cheeks, lips and around her eyes. I think she’s actually been subtly tweaking for years but went too far more recently.

      • Nope says:

        All of the above and there’s definitely been some shaping of her chin

        It’s super weird that absolutely no one talks about all the work she’s had done

      • Red says:

        @Nope agreed! She’s still getting pushed as the natural one and it’s so shocking to me. She looks nothing like she did a few years ago. She’s just as bad as her sisters and I wish more people would call her out.

    • Svea says:

      I think her lips were blown out and injectibles in the skin. Looks awful. Such a shame because she was always the naturally pretty one.

    • Agenbiter says:

      Someone suggested she also had browbone shaving, a common procedure for ‘feminizing’ a face in transition.

  4. Babs says:

    This fashion killed me. What a bunch of awful dresses. I can’t fathom how you can become haute-couture-accomplished and still getting to wear this kind of sh*t. My second-hand clothes look better than that.

  5. Patricia says:

    Kendall’s new face is just as incapable of showing any interesting expression as her old face was. She’s such a charisma vacuum.

  6. jferber says:

    I think it’s more than Botox around the forehead for Kendall. Her eyebrows actually look lifted. Could this be a mini face-lift? Here’s a rule of thumb: if Naomi can’t look good in a dress, no one can. She is an old-school supermodel and they can always kill it if the dress is worthy. It obviously wasn’t.

  7. tw says:

    I think Emily Rata is a case of tons of drugs. I’m convinced she was rolling when she married that douche. Sadly, I think Gigi is probably partying, too.

    • Milla says:

      Gigi is very young, but she looks old, worn out. I don’t know what rata looked like before.
      Naomi is still perfect. And Irina looks good. But the dresses are horrible.

    • Rachel in August says:

      Gigi practically has jowls already. She will when she gets older for sure. As for Kendall, botox in the forehead in your early 20’s?? Wow. And yes, at least two rhinoplasties for Kendall, one to make it shorter. She did have a pretty big nose.

  8. Paris says:


  9. Erinn says:

    I think I’d kind of like Kendall’s outfit if it didn’t have that piece trailing along at the end.

    But for reals – why is EVERYONE looking so awful? This is one of the worst dress roundups I’ve seen in a while.

  10. Jane says:

    Well…if she is going for a “walking feather duster” look, she’s nailed it. Perhaps she can put a wooden handle on top of her head and it can be her future Halloween costume this year.

  11. K says:

    The more Kendall Jenner does to her face, the more she looks just like her mother. I know we’re supposed to think of her as the “natural” one, but she had a rhinoplasty when she was young and she should have stopped there. All the other tweaking is not making her a “better” version of herself.

    It may be an unpopular view, but I’ve always thought Emily Ratajkowski has a beautiful face and not as generic as everyone makes out – her styling, rather, does her a disservice. I don’t think she looks much like Kendall Jenner, imo. I just wish she’s knock the very unnecessary lip filler off – her lips are naturally full enough to not need top ups.

  12. Maria F. says:

    The more Kendall does to her face, the less she is being booked, at least that is my impression.

    The Hadids are everywhere, but I have not seen a Kendall cover in awhile.

    • Lynnie says:

      It’s the other way around. She stopped being booked a long time ago, so now the pressure to not mess with her face is off. I think the only work she gets now is vogue and some lingerie contract

  13. Cee says:

    Sarah Paulson has bunions so I can’t believe she’s wearing those kind of shoes.
    I have one bunion on my little toe and those kind of shoes just kill me.

  14. Spring says:

    I love Gigi’s bright catsuit.

  15. Rebecca says:

    Just looking at Kendall’s dress made me sneeze.

  16. bella says:

    The only dress I love is Kendall’s! I love that dress and it the only dress I liked at the whole event. I looked at the other dresses and they are horrible!

  17. Other Renee says:

    What a collection of awful dresses! The only one I like actually is Emily’s.

  18. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Omg I have tears from lmao at Hunt’s dress. My stomach hurts! Hahahahahahaha…..whew.

  19. Pandy says:

    Shitastic, every one of them. With a pass to Sarah Paulson.

  20. Starkiller says:

    I’m actually obsessed with Emily’s dress. Never thought I’d say that about something she wore. Naomi still has an absolutely divine face. Everyone else looks like hot garbage.

  21. KiddV says:

    Kendall doesn’t look like Kendall. She looks like a Kim/Kendall hybrid. I think she’s pretty, just not her original face. And the dress looks like something you’d wear at home whilst drinking scotch, smoking cigs and waiting for the pool boy to arrive.

  22. still_sarah says:

    The bottom of Martha Hunt’s dress looks like a wallpaper sample – something to hang in a hallway in the basement that runs throug to the laundry room.

  23. Lilith says:

    Oh no… her face is morphing into something nightmarish.. Stop Kendall honey, before it’s too late.

    Gigi looks like a speed skater, but oddly I kinda dig it.

  24. rabbitgirl says:

    For the love of god, what happened to Gigi? She looks painfully thin and discolored. Almost yellowish. And girl, Naomi needs to find a better stylist. I don’t even understand the Martha thing going on. It looks like wallpaper on a lampshade that was ripped on her way over. Bad… just bad. All if it. Including the shabby chic coverlet dresses (seriously, I have a coverlet from Target that looks just like that).

  25. Claire Jalfon says:

    Martha Hunt is one I can never understand. Kendall can’t seriously think she is fooling anyone with the constant facial changes. I have a soft spot for Gigi, but she is losing her freshness. She has the loveliest face.
