The CFDA Fashion Awards were held today in NYC. There were some AMAZING and some equally HIDEOUS looks. Considered the Oscars of the fashion world, the CFDAs are definitely the event to BRING IT when it comes to taking a fashion risk. Here's the run down of the good, the bad and the ugly!

Kirsten Dunst is my top pick for the night. AMAZING! She KILLS IT in an amazing Rodarte minidress. Seriously, how great does she look?!?! Everything - the dress, shoes, clutch - are perfection!

Ashley Olsen looked sublime in Orange. I love this dress!

Diane Kruger always looks fantastic. She looks great in an orange Jason Wu minidress. It's not my favourite dress but she is amazing!

Um, since when did Taylor Lautner become so grown up and handsome? I guess I shouldn't be surprised after seeing the New Moon trailer but I'm very impressed by his look at the CFDAs. He looks like he was born to wear that suit!

Rachel Zoe was STUNNING in a Louis Vuitton dress, shoes, bag and vintage Chanel earrings! This is my favourite look of the night after Kirsten's Rodarte masterpiece.

I know Heidi is pregnant but seriously, what was she thinking? This dress is hideous! It looks like something you'd wear to a costume party. And her shoes are brutal. I hate everything about this.

Blake Lively looks super tanned and toned in a hot pink dress. I think she looks great but the dress is bland. So boring! To another event I would be all over this dress but the CFDAs are an event to take risks and despite the daring colour, this dress is way too tame.

Claire Danes wore a Narcisco Rodriguez embroidered black silk crepe gown. The dress is very flattering - looks great on her - but like Blake's dress it's boring. She could have worn it to any red carpet event. Definitely not 'special' enough for the CFDAs.

Lake Bell wore a daring black mini. I love the draping on the skirt. It's definitely not a safe choice but I like it a lot better than some of the boring dresses we saw on the red carpet.

Emmanuelle Chriqui wore a red satin dress with rosette detailing - HATE this dress! Absolutely HATE it! Did she not know where she was going? This dress looks cheap and uber tacky. Ugh! She's in a room with the best fashion designers in the world and this is what she wears?!? Crazy...

Whitney Port wore a floor length gray dress. The back detail is the best thing about this dress but that's not saying much. Her hair and makeup looks great but I give the dress a C-.

Molly Sims wore a Dolce & Gabanna Marilyn Monroe print cocktail dress - SO FUN! I love it.

I'm usually a huge fan of Olivia Palermo's style but this dress does not work on her. It's by David Meister. The blush colour washes her out and the fit of the top of the dress doesn't look right. Her shoes are hot though!

So who do you think is the best, worst, most boring from the CFDAs?
