Last night, the annual CFDA Fashion Awards took place at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Amongst the attendees were fashion designers, models, actresses, and tastemakers alike, all dressed to the nines in some of the greatest designers of our time.
Choosing the best dressed for one of fashion’s biggest nights of the year is pretty tough, as everyone looked pretty amazing. Wardrobe disasters were definitely few and far between (unlike most red carpets), but that would be expected given the nature of the event. I mean, these are the fashion awards, after all.
Although it was a hard decision, we rounded up our 20 favorite looks from last night’s red carpet. Click through the gallery below to peruse the looks, and prepare for some serious closet envy.
