Friday’s Fashion Obsessions: Ashley Madekwe and Sofia Vergara

Ashley Madekwe

We love to hate her on Revenge, but in real life, Ashley Madekwe is quite the lovely fashion subject to follow. The actress showed up to the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards in NYC this week in a beautiful Cushnie et Ochs dress that really caught my eye.

I like it when women don’t try too hard to look edgy or out of the box. There’s something to be said for having a unique sense of style, but sometimes, in trying too hard, you miss the mark. Ashley always seems to hit it right with her body conscious, feminine frocks like this one. On the runway, the dress was shown with slicked back hair and matching sandals, but Ashley opted for tousled waves worn over the shoulder and striking white pumps.

The final verdict? The beachy hair and on trend cutout add an air of sexiness to this otherwise business appropriate dress. The color looks beautiful against Ash’s skin tone, and the pop of white shoes adds a cool summer vibe. Loving it!

Sofia Vergara

Well hello Sofia! We can always count on Miss Vergara to bring the sexy to any event, and she didn’t disappoint at this week’s CFDA Fashion Awards in a stunning Herve L. Leroux gown.

There’s a lot going on here, but I like all of it. The ribbed top to this deep V-neck dress, the bandage-esque middle, and the flowy bottom combine for one heck of a dress that hugs Sofia’s curves perfectly. The Modern Family actress topped off her look with a statement emerald necklace and earrings, glossy waves and soft makeup.

The final verdict? Sofia knows what works for her figure, and she rocks it continuously. Lesson learned here? Don’t be afraid to show off those curves! Keep things classy with a longer gown that simply showcases a bit of your assets and leaves a little to the imagination.
