While red carpet pics of fashion’s elite dressed to the nines and tens are always lovely to fawn over, the behind the scenes Instagram snapshots tend to be much more interesting. Sharing a few laughs with friends can trump a stoic red carpet look every now and again, and a few smart phone pics from last night’s CFDA Awards can attest to that.
Last night’s recipient of the Fashion Icon Award, Rihanna, posed with her iconic gown’s designer and personal stylist, Adam Selman, before heading out to greet the masses.
Chanel Iman, who stunned in Monique Lhullier, snapped a flick with fellow model Chrissy Teigen. This is just too much gorgeousness for one photo.
And speaking of Mrs. John Legend, the beauty sidled up to other fabulous women for a pic. Priya Shukla (Vice President of Public Relations for the Vera Wang Group), Rachel Roy, and Vera Wang herself all beamed at last night’s festivities.
Another group shot for the ages, Liya Kebede, Prabal Gurung, Anja Rubik, Edward Enninful and Joan Smalls all looked divine. They definitely did it for the ‘gram.
Tyson Beckford (swoon) was all smiles as he and fashion icon and CFDA President, Diane von Furstenberg, gave eyes to the camera.
Model Jasmine Tookes was the picture of perfection in Cushnie et Ochs while posing for Instagram shutterbugs with IMG’s Steven Bermudez.
Model Maria Borges glistened in a gold DvF frock for last night’s awards, but she wasn’t the only one.
A bevy of beauties, including Arlenis Sosa, Grace Mahary, Cora Emmanuel and Melodie Monrose all dazzled in gold DvF dresses, all to honor one of fashion’s most astounding women, Bethann Hardison, who received this year’s Founders Award. Gorgeous ladies!
Hmm… it doesn’t seem as though this was too snap-happy of an event. Definitely not as many Instagram shots as The Met Gala. But fun times were certainly had by all!
