Our friend and Interior Designer Elizabeth Ainslie is celebrating the winners of dazzling design and decor at the National Design Awards, held on Thursday, October 14th. A huge congratulations to Rodarte, who won the Fashion Award and runners up Behnaz Sarafpour and Proenza Schouler. Click here for a list of all the winners. Since Elizabeth is a Board Member,  we asked her what she was wearing. for this stylish event. The awards were conceived by the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum to honor the best in American design. There is nothing chicer than a little black dress for any occasion, especially Elizabeth’s choice of a Boudicca design.  but we added some award winning accessories to get us in the mood. We love the color mix of this leopard coat, the simple LBD and the racy red of Louboutin’s stilettos and Oscar de la Renta’s romantic cuff.
