An hour before every award show we’re glued to our seats to ooh and aaah at the garments walking down the rep carpet. I can only imagine the craze watching the first ever broadcasted Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards this week on

Red Carpet

Being the year of their 50th  Anniversary CFDA decided to do things bigger. Not only did they broadcast but they awarded the biggest stars Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. The fashionable twins walked away with Womenswear Designer of the Year.

Since we are pretty much obsessed with the fashions worn by the stars, its only right for us to highlight the designers behind these master pieces. So here is what the fashion masterminds wore on their red carpet :
