STYLE SHOWDOWN: THE CFDA AWARDS

    when fashion royalty meet, best dressed battles begin!

    They call it the CFD-A List for a reason: Because when the Council of Fashion Designers of America convenes, everybody brings a date who's not just a friend, but also a fame-bot. Last night's awards were no exception: Prabal Gurung let Zoe Saldana and Jessica Chastain show off his outfits, while Karen Elson donned Proenza Schouler and Jen Kao enlisted Harley Viera-Newton to model her newest cocktail dress. Everybody looked gorgeous, but some celebs (and their behind-the-seams stylists) went above and beyond. And since the designers themselves were thrown into friendly but major competition last night (congrats to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Reed Krakoff, Billy Reid, and Joseph Altuzarra, who all scored awards!) we figured, why not make the red carpet into a game as well? Below are ten of our favorite looks from last night. Whose is the fairest of them all? Tell us in the comments section - only one can be Best Dressed!
