Marc Jacobs

It's finally cooled down! But even if it was still hellish out, I'd still want to wear this MJ ensemble. It's geek chic at its best, and dressy enough while maintaining a casual vibe. --Steff

SUNO

This SUNO piece is a great way to represent an up-and-coming label that's bound for CFDA glory in the future. Not to mention it's also fun, bright, and destined to bring a smile to everyone you see on awards night, probably even Anna. --Steff

Zac Posen

This Zac Posen look from SS10 was made for the CFDA Awards. A statement piece fit for the girl arriving on Zac's arm, this pink dress reads girlish and glamorous simultaneously. --Steff

Proenza Schouler

This ensemble from AW10 is cute and chic and perfect for the big night. Highly fashionable while still being cool, I'd slip into this Proenza Schouler dress -meets-vest in a heartbeat. Especially with the creeper-esque stompers to match. --Steff

Donna Karan

Donna Karan is nominated for women's wear designer of the year tonight, so why not wear her goddess-esque white dress from Resort. It's perfect for summer, and absolutely stunning. --Steff

Jason Wu

This frothy Jason Wu is so far from anything I've ever put on my body, but it's just so pretty. And fancy. And pink. I'm sold. --Lauren

Costello Tagliapietra

I love this dress' starry-night appeal. --Lauren

Image Title9

Sophie Theallet

Sophie's pieces are just so gorgeous--and so well-fitted to a woman's body. This shimmering number is girlie and sophisticated at once. --Lauren

Rodarte at Opening Ceremony

Even if my resources were far more plentiful, most Rodarte pieces feel too delicate for me to pull off. However, this piece from Opening Ceremony looks easy to wear without forgoing that coveted Rodarte aesthetic. --Lauren

A Piece Apart

My friend Lara, who assists the designers of A Piece Apart, wore this dress to a friend's wedding last night. Except hers was in my favorite color--a deep coral. --Lauren
