If you’re still buzzing from the Met Gala red carpet, we have more in store for you. Yes, nearly a month later, the celebs strutted their stuff again, at arguably the second largest night in fashion, the CFDA Awards. Here are some of the most unforgettable looks from the event.
Kendall Jenner left us floored in a stunning pink ostrich feather dress by designer Alexandre Vauthier. She was the picture of pure elegance.
Irina Shayk, one of the world’s hottest super models, was very on-trend in a bright yellow leopard print dress by Diane von Furstenburg. Shayk attended the event without her long-time boyfriend, heartthrob Bradley Cooper.
The Olsen Twins
The Olsen twins are known for being quite elusive, but they made a rare appearance both wearing black ensembles. Mary Kate and Ashley have matured after their days as child actresses. The pair launched their own fashion label in 2007 and have designed ranges for J C Penny and Walmart. The ladies both received awards for their fashion label, The Row.
Erivo is one of Britain’s up-and-coming actresses and singers. She paired the short-hemmed dress with sheer black socks and heels, dark plum lipstick and daring green eyeshadow. We love this look.
Guerrero, who is best known for her role in Orange Is The New Black, posed on the red carpet in this satin floor-length dress. She looked elegant with her slicked-back locks and classy dress.
The Australian actress always looks amazing, but we’re not quite sure what to make of this sequined outfit.
The outgoing actress wore this flared pantsuit by designer Christian Siriano to the evening’s event. If the ensemble had been made in a more subtle fabric we might have had a different opinion but this shiny suit is not quite what we had in mind.
Ashley Graham is simply fabulous. The body positive activist and model wore this simple nude dress to the annual event, she spiced up the look with bold red lips, dramatic full lashes and soft wavy locks.
Maddie Zieglar is most commonly recognized as the dancing girl who has made numerous appearances in Sia’s music videos. But little Maddie is now not so little anymore! Maddie attended the awards for the first time and wore this demure black dress by Sies Marjan along with jewelry by Tiffany & Co.
Laura Harrier is one of the lesser known faces to have attended the evening’s awards but we’re pretty sure this rising talent is someone to look out for. She wore this shirt, blazer and pant ensemble. The look is chic, easy but perhaps a little too laid back for a fashion award ceremony… what do you think?
Sarah Paulson looked like the picture of fun, feminine spring fashion in this floral frock. The acclaimed actress embellished the look with quirky earrings and dusty pink velvet heels and a matching clutch purse.
Tracee Ellis Ross
We are huge fans of the fabulous Miss Ross but we’re feeling unsure of her look from this year’s award show. Her make up and hair are effortlessly stylish but the pale pink ruffled dress does little to enhance her physique.
Miss Harlow has come a long way from being one of the many contestants on America’s Next Top Model. Harlow has become one of fashion’s rising names and she seldom disappoints in the style department. She wore this one-shouldered navy dress by Tommy Hilfiger and teamed it with sparkling heels and a diamond necklace.
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School senior Delaney Tarr has become a face recognized around the world for her tireless efforts to end gun violence after her high school was left devastated by a school shooting. She took time out from her activism to attend the event in this pretty, gold-colored wrap dress.
Is there anything that Emily Ratajowski can’t wear? The model and actress opted for floral accents and black lace with this dress from the Brick Collection. The beauty has most recently wed her long-time boyfriend, Sebastian Bear-McClard.
New Jersey native Carerra made a splash with this bold burnt orange dress and matching eye shadow. She most certainly has the abs to pull off the look but just because you can does not always mean you should. Sadly, this look doesn’t quite make our best dressed list.
Fashion would not be what it is today without the seemingly ageless and infinitely fabulous Naomi Campbell. The supermodel wore this fringed red number. She was honored with the evening’s ‘Fashion Icon’ award. It’s difficult to believe the ebony beauty has most recently celebrated her 48th birthday.
As they say, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Kaia Gerber most definitely inherited her mother, Cindy Crawford’s, supermodel genes. The fresh-faced teen attended the event for the first time wearing this interesting outfit by Alexander Wang.
You might not be a fan of the Kardashian sisters but its difficult to deny just how flawless Kourtney looks in this embellished, flared pantsuit. Love her or hate her, this girl knows how to pull off a look.
It wouldn’t be a Hollywood event without Kim Kardashian in attendance. The reality TV star and established entrepreneur stunned in this crop top that revealed her enviable abs. Kim K was honored with a ‘Fashion Influencer’ award.
Dominican-born Montero is best known for her work for numerous Prada fashion campaigns. The model looked lovely in pastel hues and an expected splash of color on her plump lips.
Rosario Dawson walked the red carpet in this black satin dress. The star completed the look with sleek hair and a diamond choker. The dress was not the most exciting choice but we still think she looked elegant.
Bright yellow is making a serious fashion statement at the moment. Kehlani, the gorgeous songstress, looked like a ray of sunshine in this daring yellow dress and matching strappy heels. She embellished the look with an unexpected splash of animal print, she carried a quirky zebra-print clutch purse.
Issa Rae made history as the first person of color to host the evening’s event. Her opening monologue was filled with political humor, most notably taking aim at Kanye West for his recent comments regarding slavery. Rae celebrated her achievement by wearing this flawless sparkling gown along with a belt embellished with the words ‘Every N***a is a Star.’
The 24 year old actress was yet another rising talent to have attended the award show. Bria made her acting debut in the 2017 film The Florida Project. She looked fun and flirty with her bubblegum pink locks and shiny iridescent coat.
13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford made a splash in this chic, grown up look. The young actress wore her long, flowing brunette hair to one side, demure make up and donned this suit for the evening. We love the shoes!
Julia Garner is yet another fresh face in the younger generation of Hollywood up-and-comers. We give her points for being bold but we’re not thrilled with her choice of dress for the evening.
The young Riverdale star looked fresh, young and oh-so-pretty in this soft floral number. Reinhart has become a hot young Hollywood it-girl since she debuted playing Betty Cooper in the series inspired by the Archie comics. She has recently set fans tongue’s wagging with confirmation that she is dating her onscreen love interest Cole Sprouse.
Oh, Whoopie. We’ll celebrate any lady who makes bold and risky fashion choices but it’s difficult to applaud when your eyes are being assaulted by so much bright pink. We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again, just because it has a designer label does not mean you’ll look good in it…
The singer showcased some major cleavage when she stepped out in this blazer-inspired mini-dress. The songstress pulled her hair back in a tight ponytail and boasted a gorgeous bronze beauty look.
As per usual, the award-winning actress left the crowds stunned with this bold, fashion-forward look. Nyong’o wore this custom, thigh-skimming Versace bustier gown and matching choker, but the real showstopper was her gold liquid lipstick which has since left beauty bloggers desperate to know what exactly the star used to achieve the fabulous look.
Smalls hit the carpet looking gorgeous in this Brandon Maxwell outfit. The model paired a teeny tiny white crop top with a full high-waisted floor-length magenta skirt. We especially love the high pony tail and chunky diamond accessories!
Sequins have made a fierce comeback this summer season and it seems the beautiful Amber Heard is on board with the sparkling trend. She attended the event in a crisp white tuxedo shirt and matching black sequinned pant suit.
The top model made an entrance in this garish Versace body suit. Gigi usually gets it right on the red carpet but the abstract print lefts onlookers less than impressed. The 23 year old recently made headlines when she split from her long time boyfriend, singer Zayn Malik.
Mendes plays the sultry and seductive Veronica Lodge on CW’s hit series Riverdale. She looked lovely in this embellished black dress with sheer and cosmic-themed detailing. She finished the look with a pair of dangling earrings and simple heels.
