Tuxladies_large

At Monday night’s CFDA Awards, Leelee Sobieski, Phoebe Philo and Kirsten Dunst all showed up sporting sleek tuxedos. What do you think about their choice of evening wear? Who rocked the look best? While I’m not a huge fan of her shoes, my overall vote goes to Leelee who wore a suit by her husband, designer Adam Kimmel. She looks a bit like a cross between young versions of Lauren Hutton and Glenn Close, no?

Try these patterns to get the look yourself:

    I’ve been wanting to make a tux for so long! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Leelee Sobieski wins it for me, and I LOVE her shoes (I’ve got a pair just like them too). Kirsten Dunst on second place. I thin the key to female tuxedo’s is shape, they need to be perfectly fitted to be perfect (surprising, eh). I think all three ladies would have looked a lot better with other hairstyles, they’re too ordinary and not at all party-esque.

    i have been meaning to make one of these for awhile now – but out of a funky print. I think this is going to have to be my next project!

    I like Kirsten Dunst´s suit the most… but I´m not a fan of her hairstyle here.

      I have to agree with you, her hair is not very cute.

    I agree- somehow it works better in the white. I do feel though, that it’s a waste of a perfectly good opportunity to wear a spectacularly extravagant dress.
