Was Kim Kardashian one of the best dressed ladies at this year’s CFDAs?

Here are some photos from last night’s CFDA Awards, which is sort of like the Met Gala but smaller (both events are organized by Anna Wintour). This year’s honorees included Gwyneth Paltrow (CFDA Innovation Award) and Serena Williams (Fashion Icon Award). Gwyneth wore a look from her very own “G Label,” her in-house Goop fashion line. I have to admit… um, Gwyneth looked good?

Here’s Serena in a custom Thom Browne. She just gave birth to her second daughter over the summer and I have to say, her “bounceback” has been amazing, especially given that she’s in her 40s and she has a long history of medical complications. I love that she looks and seems so healthy and happy.

Y’all are going to hate me when I say this, but I genuinely thought Kim Kardashian was one of the best-dressed women at the CFDAs. She wore a custom Chrome Hearts look. My guess is that the fashionistas will say that she looks too done, too over the top, but I wish she would dress like this for every event.

Here’s Karlie Kloss in a really bad black dress. LOL, Swifty’s Revenge.

Molly Ringwald wore Zac Posen and Posen was her date! She’s his latest muse and I kind of love it.

Emily Ratajkowski was a tad underdressed but the minidress is cute. Just not for the CFDAs.

Demi Moore in a sparkly Carolina Herrera – this was also one of my favorite looks of the night.

Bonus look: Anne Hathaway in Ralph Lauren. Mm, I’m not so sure about this.

    I really like Kim’s look too, and at the same time, she reminds me of JLo. That updo and halter combo is such a JLo look. The open-mouthed bombshell vibe is also JLos. She also looking more and more like her mother, her facial features and such.

  2. Nev says:

    Goop so chic.

    • molly says:

      She really is. Goop will ALWAYS look like she has money. (Her courtroom style is basically my Rich Lady Winter Goals.) That’s not the case with the Kims of the world, but I agree that she looks really pretty here.

  3. thisnthat says:

    I think too that Kim K looks good! Once she ditches the warm, earthy, neutral nude tones she wore all the time and sticks to something that matches her season better, her whole appearance is elevated.

    • Thelma says:

      Agree, she looks great as does Gwyneth, I love you Serena but just no to the outfit. Also, I thought she was naturally busty but this picture isn’t giving serious implant vibes.

      • Ana Maria says:

        Agree with you re: Serena; I don’t think that super squeezed-together-breasts look flatters anyone

  4. Clur says:

    I am so sick of this woman! Her image is inescapable.

    • Her again says:

      Clur- totally agree. She’s such a horrid person, I could never find it in myself to praise her for anything.

      Also her shoes look ridiculous, from what I can see of them. You’re short, Kim. Deal with it.

      For the record, I’m short, too, and I’ve always thought that short women who wear SKY high heels, like Kim’s, or worse yet, SKY high platforms, just end up looking like short women in platforms. It does NOT give the allusion that one is tall. especially when the shoes are visible. Ok I’m done.

      Demi Moore’s dress is fab, as is Goop’s, normally I like Zac Posen but I’m not sure about Molly’s dress. Maybe it’s the angle…..

    • bettyrose says:

      One can be sick of her and still take time to wonder if she has an attendant with her at all times to help her get out her outfits when nature calls.

      • Her again says:

        I don’t remember who but some female celebrity once was asked about that at the Oscars, and she said that she brings a Mason jar to pee in! Easier than taking it all off just to put it all back on 1 min later!

      • bettyrose says:

        A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, but there’s a big difference between the occasional awards show and KK’s need to never where anything even remotely practical. I can only imagine she has a staff member whose entire job that is.

  5. Josephine says:

    Love Molly’s dress and she looked amazing. Gweneth’s look is very much her – as much as people hate her, she really owned this look in the 90’s and is working it well again. But she’s still awful! As for Kim, she just exudes tacky (hate her hair) and her artificial backside and breast implants are working against her smaller frame. The dress is nice from the front though.

    • Matilda says:

      I went to an event that was selling second hand clothes for charity and one of the organizers managed to get many of Zac Posen’s sample PR gowns from his last season and they were $500/$450 each! I had no intention of buying much that evening but I left with three AMAZING gowns and my friend bought one of his gowns for her wedding reception dress. I feel like a movie star in these gowns however my husband is upset because I told him we have to go more galas so I can wear them.

  6. The only nice thing I will say about how Kim dresses is that she isn’t wearing what Kanye tells her to wear anymore.

  7. Kirsten says:

    Gwyneth looks really lovely but maybe a tad underdressed? I don’t like anyone else’s look.

  8. Danbury says:

    Molly and Demi are my two favourite looks here. They look great!

  9. WaterDragon says:

    Ye Gods! Is Demi Moore wearing a knee brace? What’s up with that?

    • DeeSea says:

      It’s for sure a confusing perspective, but I zoomed in to examine and it’s definitely a different person’s leg with a gray sock and a black shoe. And now I want to see that person’s full outfit! Demi looks fabulous.

      Molly Ringwald’s look is stunning! She looks so good, and I love that she’s Zac Posen’s latest muse. And it pains me to admit that Gwyneth looks amazing. Damn it.

  10. Krista says:

    No. There’s nothing original about Kim K – literally.

  11. Becks1 says:

    Kim’s look is fine from the front, but I don’t love the back. Maybe its the buttons?

    I think Gwyneth looks really good, maybe the best we’ve seen from her in a while.

    anne hathaway….no, just no.

  12. Abby says:

    I saw video of Demi on instagram and she looked STUNNING. I love that dress. I cannot believe she’s the age she is looking that way. Whatever previous work she’s had done on her face has settled. She looked beautiful.

    Also, I really like Gwyneth’s look. I would wear it if it wasn’t such a high neck.

  13. Tila says:

    I love Gwyneth, Molly and Demi’s looks. I never understood how Karlie Kloss was able to become a successful model. She got such a boost from association with TS.

    • Ameerah M says:

      Karlie was a high profile in demand model BEFORE she met TS. That’s one of the reasons why their friendship became such a big deal. I’m not a fan of hers but her success is her own.

      • Tila says:

        Eh. I’m not a fan of either but KK is a dull model and the only think striking about her is her height.

      • Ameerah M says:

        Okay. Doesn’t change any of what I said though lol. She was still a top model before her and TS became friends.

  14. Abby B says:

    I haaaaate the sleeve situation on Serena’s dress. It looks like a spooky season costume. It doesn’t do her justice at all.

    Kim, Molly, Demi and ……even Gwyneth…all look great.

    Karlie’s dress gives “school marm in mourning from the 1800s.” Yuck.

    • Her again says:

      Totally agree about Karlie Kloss. Her dress is awful. Why are the sleeves so bulky?? What is that neckline? Shoes are cute but they cannot save this mess

  15. Kate says:

    I think Anne’s look is a Britney denim dress homage

  16. Kitten says:

    A lot of nice dresses actually but Demi is my fave. Kim looks good…kind of a boring dress for her but it fits her nicely.

  17. Artemis says:

    I love anne’s outfit. This is how you do denim imo

  18. Trishelle says:

    To answer the question in the headline-NO. Kim deserves no credit or praise. Same with Gwyneth. Both are grifters and tacky people.

  19. lizbert says:

    Is it just me or is there an unfortunate bronzer situation happening with Gwyneth’s nose? It looks 3x darker than the rest of her face.

  20. Chaine says:

    Demi’s dress is stunning. Kim’s and Molly’s dresses are also lovely.. Gwyneth, snooze so boring. I can’t see Serena’s dress very well in the photo, love the necklace. Her makeup looks too harsh, though, I think it’s the eyebrows. Ditto Molly, her skin is so fair it needs a more subtle palate, and the dark brows, lips, and eyeliner are not doing her any favors.

  21. Micha says:

    Kim’s look is good taken on its own — then when you zoom it looks like something straight out of Hot Topic and not at all high fashion . It is a whole lot
    Of try hard … so on brand .

  22. BB says:

    I like Kim’s figure these days. Beautiful arms. She looks good.

  23. paintybox says:

    Goop’s HAIR looks almost good? It’s usually horribly stringy, split, bleached-out and dry – she should keep doing whatever she’s doing with it. Her outfit looks very nice on her too. Demi is looking wonderful. I always love Serena even when I’m not that crazy about what she’s wearing. Molly is wearing that dress but she’s not wearing that lip color. I think Anne looks good even though all I can think about the denim gown situation is “whyyyy???”. It’s not her first rodeo but it’s her first formal rodeo???

  24. Normades says:

    For once I think everyone actually looks really great here (with maybe the exception of Emily who does look under dressed). Kim is demure for Kim. The halter cut top is actually really nice on her.

  25. HeatherC says:

    GP looks like GP. Its a snooze but when she embraces what works for her, it at least works.

    SW: Her top looks painful. As a busty woman myself I hate having the girls pushed together, hauled up and restrained like that.

    Kim K looks…good here too I agree. I don’t think it’s over the top for -her- and it’s great that she’s going back to dressing like herself rather than being Kanye’s dress up doll. (those neutral poo colors did not work on her)

    Karlie K: boring. And not that great. The dress could have been structured better but better styling would have saved it.

    MR yes to red heads wearing red!

    ER: Boring. We’ve seen this before, the mini dress, the styling, the stance. but it works for her and her brand

    DM: mostly works. For me I think it’s the length of the dress (in mid motion at least) like it needed to be a little shorter or a little longer. I love that her work has settled and she looks like a “professionally refreshed” version of herself.

    AH: No. Just no. Though I like the necklace.

  26. theotherviv says:

    The heels on Kim are what, 10 inches high? How does she walk? From the front it was a very sleek look and I thought , wow she looks tall! Then from the side and back I realized she never gets to be comfortable at all, because LOOKS.
    Demi looks as if she is ready to paaaarttyyyy.

  27. Her again says:

    As much as I love Zac Posen’s gowns, I’m not sure about Zac’s look! I mean, is he wearing JEANS???

  28. AnneL says:

    I like to see a redhead in red, but Molly’s make-up is a little harsh. It would work if she went for a softer look.

    Gwyneth’s style is very consistent, which can be boring but she does look nice here.

    I think Serena’s dress looks really uncomfortable.

    Yes, Kim K looks good. The dress fits her well and I like the buttons. Demi also looks nice. Kloss is dressed for a different event.

    Well I hate Anne’s dress. She looks like she’s wearing a curtain someone DIYed out of old denim pockets.

    I love Molly’s dress. I l am a redhead that wears red. Love it when I see it. Demi is stunning.
