The 2016 CFDA Awards went down last night, with too many stylish women in attendance to count! Beyoncé picked up a major award and overall, the ladies really brought the glamour on the red carpet.
Let’s see what they wore!
Beyoncé accepted the Fashion Icon Award for the evening in a embellished striped Givenchy suit and what seems to be the same hat she sports on her Formation tour. This is one of her most daring looks ever. Brava to the Queen!
Gabrielle Union gave a fresh spin on classic stripes in a black and white Lela Rose gown. Simply gorgeous.
Ciara channeled the blushing bride-to-be she is in a pretty Roberto Cavalli gown in the soft shade. Hot!
Queen Naomi Campbell looked iconic in a black cutout Brandon Maxwell gown. She just keeps getting better…
Tracee Ellis Ross gave her statement-making jacquard, ruffle-adorned Suno gown some flair with a french braid and red lips. I loved this!
Joan Smalls tried on a black bobbed wig for size, with a cutout number that served up Grecian goddess from Eddie Borgo. Werk Joan!
Laverne Cox brought the drama in a cape-inspired dress with cascading sleeves and train and a front slit from Marc Bouwer. She’s becoming one of my red carpet favorites.
A strapless red and black Prabal Gurung gown was Jennifer Hudson’s choice for the evening.
Jonathan Simkhai hopped on the sheer dress train by slipping Jourdan Dunn into a transparent web-inspired dress. Isn’t she stunning?
Banana Republic makes a good gown! Just look at Jamie Chung in a hot pink and red design from the brand. Perhaps they should think about dipping their toes into the red carpet business…
The OITNB women represented for the night, with Samira Wiley in a lovely Milly confection.
Shanina Shaik followed Beyoncé’s lead in a sultry Givenchy number. Hot!
Jasmine Tookes shimmered and sparkled in a black and silver sequin and beaded dress.
Black and white was clearly the go-to for the awards show! America Ferrara wore a black Kate Spade gown with white and crystal stone embellishment. Pretty!
Why bring a model when you look like Vera Wang? Slay Vera!
Rachel Roy smoldered in her very own one-shoulder red gown. So elegant!
Ashley Graham demonstrated the power of simplicity in a black Michael Kors Collection halter gown. She never disappoints on the red carpet!
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was also a Kors girl, in a custom mint beaded georgette godet gown. The woman can do no wrong.
Olivia Palermo looked delightful in a white and pink Carolina Herrera frock.
Very few people could make this Marc Jacobs ensemble look cool. Naturally, the getup came easily to Adriana Lima. All in a day’s work for a supermodel.
Taylor Hill was a breath of fresh Summer air in a floral embroidered Thakoon gown.
Sara Sampaio looks breathtaking in just about everything, but her lace DVF LBD fell a bit short when thinking of the glamour the night demanded.
A simple and chic Jason Wu gown was on the menu for Emily Ratajkowski.
Riley Keough gave her black and white printed Proenza Schouler dress some color with bold, red lips. Hot!
It was all about cutouts for mommy-to-be Olivia Wilde in a green, long-sleeve Rosie Assoulin gown.
Heidi Klum was clad in an artful Roland Mouret gown for the occasion.
A leaf-embroidered piece from Prabal Gurung was on the agenda for Jessica Chastain. I loved the old Hollywood-reminiscent hair here.
Claire Danes’s pleated black Calvin Klein Collection dress was accented with a multicolor gemstone brooch.
Irina Shayk was the lady in red in a very “come hither” Misha Nonoo halter jumpsuit in the fiery shade. You know I always live for a great jumpsuit!
Another Kors girl! Alessandra Ambrosio wore a one-shoulder, purple sequin gown from the brand.
It was a family affair for Mary-Kate and Ashley! They brought their sister and muse Elizabeth along, all clad in black designs from The Row.
Karlie Kloss was white hot in flirty Rosie Assoulin halter dress with a cutout front. Cute!
Michelle Monaghan showed that Off White has some red carpet potential. Let’s see what Virgil Abloh has up his sleeves for the remainder of 2016. Her Schutz sandals were a nice touch.
Last, but certainly not least was Olivia Culpo in a black tuxedo dress with a feather hem from Kate Spade.
Who had your favorite look of the evening?
