CFDA Awards 2014: Alexander Wang Brings Mango (Yes, That Mango) as His Date

Jun/02/2014 at 08:29 PM ET

The Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards is a time when American designers get to strut their stuff on the red carpet, often with a statuesque model or A-list starlet on their arm, dressed head to toe in the designer’s wares. For Alexander Wang, however, the night was even more special than that: He got to attend in the company of Mango. Yes, Mango. As in “You can’t have-a the Mango!,” late-’90s SNL, Chris Kattan alter ego Mango.

Who Had Your Favorite Cannes Look? Here's How Stylist Kate Young Answered

May/27/2014 at 04:34 PM ET

Cannes has finally come to a close, and it’s been such a whirlwind of one beautiful gown after another. We narrowed down some of our favorite (and not-so-favorite) red carpet moments, but we also turned to a pro to narrow down the looks she was loving. Celeb stylist Kate Young (whose clients include Natalie Portman and Michelle Williams) answered that question for us — appropriately, since she’s also a style expert for Ask.com. Below, see her three top picks from the hundreds of red carpet looks we saw at the French Film Festival last week.

Cannes 2014 Style Awards: The Beauty and Fashion Looks That Stood Out Above the Rest

May/23/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

While the official mission statement for the Cannes Film Festival describes it as an occasion to raise awareness of films that contribute to the development of cinema, we believe that it should be rewritten to, “An event where Hollywood’s finest take fashion risks in plunging gowns, bold lips and noteworthy hairstyles.” (But that’s just our opinion.)

Over the past week we have seen some looks that have left us absolutely envious (Seriously, have you seen Blake Lively lately?) and others that we would be way too timid to try. Take a look below to see which of your favorite celebs earned nods in our beauty and fashion awards for rocking some seriously striking trends.

Boldest Lip: The first award in our beauty category goes to supermodel Coco Rocha (left). While everyone else stuck with a basic red, nude or pink, she opted for a gothic-inspired deep purple to contrast her white Gabriela Cadena column gown. (Take that, Naomi Campbell!)

Biggest Braid: When Blake Lively stepped on the scene on day one of the festival, we didn’t think her enormous plait could be rivaled (see it from all sides here) — but Eva Longoria (center) proved us wrong. The actress showed up to the Foxcatcher premiere with a voluminous fishtail that mirrored her revealing cutout.

Most Enviable Waves ( … and dresses, and husband … ): But Lively did emerge victorious in another hair category. Though tons of Cannes attendees brought the glamour, we ultimately decided that her thick, luxurious waves from the Mr. Turner premiere were the perfect topper for her Chanel Couture iridescent dress.

Highest Slit: After a while, we started to lose track of the number of thigh-high slits we saw on the red carpet this week. Though every celeb seemed to want to show off their stems, we noticed one supermodel that ultimately deserved the prize. Adriana Lima’s Alexandre Vauthier Couture bustier dress (left) took the trend to new heights with an opening that rivals Angelina Jolie’s 2012 Oscars dress.

Maximum Number of Embellishments: We were mesmerized not only by the many colors on Marion Cotillard’s Maison Martin Margiela Couture mini (center), but also by the sheer number of beads, gems and other bric-a-brac it took to make this piece (we’re not going to start counting, but we can guess the total is well into the thousands).

Biggest “YAAAAS” Moment: The second one editor saw Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s look (right), she sent it to the rest of the team with the subject line, “Dead.” All eyes were on the model as she walked down the red carpet in her strapless Gucci Première gown with perfect free-flowing tresses and flawless makeup.

Did you see any other noteworthy looks on the Cannes red carpet that deserve a style award? Let us know in the comments section and tell us who was your favorite!
