The Most ‘Scandalous’ Gowns at the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards! Inspired by Kerry Washington, Sofia Vergara and More!

Designers, starlets, supermodels, paparazzi and yes, Hilary Clinton, all joined forces to honor leading designers at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Fashion Awards, held at the Lincoln Center in New York City on June 3, 2013 and underwritten by Swarovski!  The event aims to reward design excellence in womenswear, menswear and accessories, as well as outstanding journalism, creative vision and lifetime achievement.

The over 400 CFDA members each nominate a designer for the eleven award categories.  Proenza Schouler’s, for the third time, won the Womenswear Designer of the Year award, and design duo Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez accepted the award on behalf of the label from Scandal star Kerry Washington.  Thom Browne is the Menswear Designer of the Year, and Phillip Lim of 3.1 Phillip Lim is the Accessories Designer of the Year.  Vera Wang was the lucky lady of the evening, winning the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award.

But who were the best dressed of the evening you ask?  I’ve rounded up my favorite fashion moments looks just for you!
