It's no wonder Sophie Theallet won this year's CFDA awards.

Generous with vintage lace and pleats, and punctuated with a palate of white, black, and
splashes of bold colors, her dresses were simple, effortlessly beautiful, globally-conscious and ethereal. Smart and sensible, these dresses are perfect for a night out on the town, a cocktail affair, or a really, really important first date.

The dress reminiscent of a wedding gown, shown above, closed the collection and was one of my favorites.
I could totally see myself wearing that for my own wedding--just as I could see myself wearing just about
everything in her Spring 2011 collection.
After seeing her red dress I'm on the hunt for the perfect LRD!
I was amazed to see the legendary Bill Cunningham present as well.

Backstage, (thanks, Sophie Elgort!) I saw the gorgeous (and very ethnically diverse) models
styled with simple topknots, ponytails and Frida Kahlo-inspired red lipstick.

"Featuring architectural and futuristic influences he is being billed as the second coming of Alexander McQueen, and those are legendary shoes to fill. We loved his surreal take on hand bags, but his shoes were the major draw." -JSD

A graduate of FIT, Daniel Nieto won the Excellence in Footwear Design, Next Generation Awards in 2010. Daniel’s pieces epitomizes the art of design. He uses leathers, skins, spikes, metals, furs, gems, and horns in avant-garde ways. I have to admit, from all the designers showcased at Colombian Lux Event, I was most captivated by Daniel's work. To boot, he's super super sweet :)The next day I came by & visited him during his photo shoot. He's going places.
