Red Carpet Recap: 2013 Style Awards' Must-See Fashion
Posted Wednesday September 4, 2013 8:04 PM GMT
The 10th Annual Style Awards — aka the official kickoff to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week — drew out the Who's Who of the industry on Wednesday (September 4).
Celebrities like Rachel Zoe, Nicole Richie (the night’s host) and 2013’s Model of the Year Kate Upton, walked the style-packed red carpet rocking some serious sartorial eye candy. And can someone please ask Christie Brinkley what the secret to her ageless look is? Mercy, woman!
The star-studded showcase is scheduled to air on CNN September 14 at 7 PM, but we pulled together five of the evening’s hottest looks worthy of immediate mention.
Kate Upton: If we needed any further prove of the leggy blonde's "Model of the Year" worth — here it is. A curvy Kate hit the evening's red carpet in a black frame-hugging, three-quarter-length sleeve dress the fell just above her knees, which she paired with a deep crimson pump. The added "wow" factor? A plunging neckline. The daring v-neck upped her sex appeal and directed all eyes to her ample assets.
Chanel Iman: What was that rule about wearing white after Labor Day? Yeah, Iman doesn't remember either — and frankly, neither do we. The brunette stunner turned up at the Fashion Week kickoff in a alabaster-hued, floor-length frock that featured both mesh detailing and front and back cutouts. To balance the dress' edgy appeal, Chanel opted for clean, neutral makeup and simple, pulled-back hair.
Nicole Richie: Holy crop. This is how you do a two-piece outfit. The fashion phenom wowed us with her ability make a belly-baring getup awards show-appropriate. Richie teamed her studded, long-sleeve top with high-waist ankle trousers and stylish, strappy black pumps. Talk about (show) hostess with the mostess!
Christie Brinkley: We're just going to say it: This woman doesn't age! The seemingly timeless supermodel hit the annual sartorial soiree in a stunning steel-toned lace number that was a total knockout. From head to hem, Brinkley's form-fitting frock was a total winner in our book.
Rachel Zoe: The pregnant "Stylist of the Year" radiated her way down the red carpet in a black strapless Valentino gown. She let her shiny locks flow with natural-looking waves and accessorized with vintage statement jewelry. The expectant mom was joined by hubby Rodger Berman who walked proudly by her side. Can you say, glowing?
