Rachel Roy’s designs are innovative and alluring, so it’s no wonder supermodel Hilary Rhoda and designer Rachel Roy teamed up for the red carpet at the CFDA Awards last night in New York! Check out my backstage look into the process of choosing Hilary’s Rachel Roy gown for this event!

On May 27, 2010, @Rachel_Roy logged onto Twitter and shared with followers a snapshot of Ms. Rhoda during her fitting along with this tweet, “Which color do you like better for @HilaryHRhoda for a big event coming up? -RR”.


When I saw this picture, I  immediately suggested the white dress in a reply tweet from my account, @victoriastiles. The yellow, although I love the design, felt did not compliment Hilary’s skin tone.  The white Rachel Roy design gave Hilary an elegant style and complimented her neutral-toned skin.


I was pleased with their decision…


I asked Hilary and Rachel what influenced their decision to go with this design over the other and their response was, “To keep it summery and fresh”.
