My votes for best dressed of the night definitely go to Janelle Monae and Joan Smalls. Janelle stuck to her classic black and white palette, but gave her hair a little change, added a dose of sexy with a plunging v neckline and chose a palazzo pant silhouette instead of her normal straight leg trousers. Joan’s look was dark but absolutely gorgeous and I loved her plum raisin lip: not easy to pull off, but a great statement when done properly.

Who were your favorites?
