Maya Thurman-Hawke, daughter of former Hollywood couple Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, made her first red carpet solo debut at the 2015 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City on Monday. The 16-year-old looked just like her mother as she posed for photos. The teenager was accompanied by fashion designer Zac Posen.
The awards were presented by the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Naturally, the teen wore a Zac Posen gown. The designer dressed Maya in a floor-length, bead-embellished overlay gown and referred to her as “my gorgeous date” on his Instagram post, according to Mirror UK. The Zac Posen Resort 2016 floral-embroidered tulle gown featured cap sleeves, a black fitted bodice and full petticoat covered with a diaphanous layer of material with flowers in red, pink, blue and green beads.
The teenager looked fresh and picture perfect in the sweet floral number. The delicate sheer overlay of the gown lent a fresh lightness to the rich floral print. Maya twirled like a pro, showing off the intricate embroidered detail as she moved under the lights. She cut a playful figure in her autumnal ensemble. Maya’s blond hair was kept center-parted in loose waves. Her makeup consisted of rosy tones of blusher and deep pink lipstick. The teen completed her look in a pair of black peep-toe high heels. She didn’t wear any accessories with her colorful gown.
The American fashion designer looked dapper in a classic navy tuxedo. The 34-year-old paired the suit with a deep gray shirt and matching bowtie. He shared another picture on Instagram of the last minute alterations to his outfit. Posen also shared a couple of pictures on the photo sharing apps of his beautiful date.
Talking to reporters on the red carpet, Posen said: “Maya and I chose the dress together. I thought it was appropriate and right. Maya is 16 … it’s her first red carpet alone and it was right, it was ethereal, floral, from my new resort collection.” Maya joined the likes of Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and a plethora of other celebs at the ceremony in the Big Apple.
