The Best Looks From the 2011 CFDA Nominees

The CFDA Awards are a time to reflect on the amazing work of American fashion designers and industry professionals. (And a chance to wear an evening gown, which doesn't come around as much as I wish it would.) In honor of tonight's ceremonies, we've rounded up our favorite looks from this year's CFDA nominees and I've got to say, they're all pretty amazing. From Pamela Love's hefty gems to 3.1 Phillip Lim's quirky dudes, the CFDA noms are a diverse bunch.
