Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jessica Biel joined the parade of stars during the CFDA Awards held Monday at NYC’s Alice Tully Hall.
“It’s very comfortable,” friendly Gwyneth says of her Michael Kors frock. “It’s like a T-shirt -- and it’s stretchy. It’s very comfortable.”
Here comes sleek Sarah Jessica, who dons a floral print gown. What does she love about it?
“Aw jeez,” the Sex and the City siren shrugs. “Everything. Everything!”
Although Jessica doesn’t speak, she makes sure we have her multicolored tiger print dress designer: Diane von Furstenberg.
The fashion event also brings out Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen (who gives a TV interview beside me, how exciting! I’ve never seen them talk before.) dressed in their signature hobo style; effortlessly cool Ed Westwick, who mouths his aviator shades before sliding them on; elegant Whitney Port, and — ta-da! — Dakota Fanning wearing a white ballerina dress.
Meanwhile, David Bowie hangs in the wings as wife Iman chats about her gown.
Here comes Rachel Weisz, who is joined by dress designer Jason Wu on the pastel carpet. "It’s very chic, elegant, simple and comfortable," she says of her dress.
Molly Sims gives high praise to her DVF frock. “It’s the new boyfriend wrap,” the Las Vegas star says. “It’s the easiest dress I’ve ever worn.”
Iron Man 2 star Kate Mara’s cute braid accentuates her Zac Posen dress. What’s the key to a great braid?
“I think it depends on your preference of the thickness of it,” she tells me. “Because that changes everything. It’s all a matter of opinion.”
Also attending: Brooke Shields, Michelle Tractenberg, Emilie de Ravin, Rachel Zoe, Maggie Grace and Alexa Chung, who runs away when I ask her a dieting question about what she ate today.
Let's hope there's good food inside.
