CFDA Awards 2018: 14 Most Disappointing Looks
The annual CFDA Awards have brought the world’s most fashionable elites under one roof for a night to celebrate style and couture. The event is often dubbed the “Oscars of Fashion” and features some pretty intricate red carpet outfits to honor the brightest and boldest stars in the American fashion industry. Although we love how experimental some of the looks of the evening were, there was also a handful that inevitably disappointed us. Follow along for 14 of the most disappointing red carpet looks from this year’s 2018 CFDA Awards:
14. Lupita Nyong’o
Actress Lupita Nyong’o opted for a black and silver Versace number for this year’s CFDA Awards. The look was highly structured and flattered her figure by cinching in at her waist and flowing out into a subtle bubble-shaped skirt. We definitely appreciate the intricate pattern work involved in the dress, but the strange necklace paired with it seemed to distract from all the details of the dress, which was quite disappointing.
13. Tracee Ellis Ross
Tracee Ellis Ross is typically quite polished and stylish on the red carpet, but her CFDA look from this year wasn’t one of her best, unfortunately! The pink frothy number featured a multi-tonal color palette that flowed into a cupcake-inspired ankle-length skirt. Although we appreciate the feminine and romantic vibe of this dress, the empire waist and tiers weren’t the best options to flatter her figure and show off her waistline.
