This year, the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) awards hosted many celebs who dressed for the occasion. Alike the Met Gala, this is an invite-only red carpet event, but uniquely for important people who represent and are apart of the fashion industry. Without any special dress-code, guests dressed in all sorts of outfits, and here are my fav picks.

Top 5 Best Dressed:

All looking fabulous and chic, these 9 attendees looked great in all of their different looks. Jessica Stam glowed in her white jumpsuit, while this year’s Accessories Designers of the Year award winners, the Olsen twins, looked classic and elegant as always in their black ensembles.

Blake Lively shone in her gold sequined MK number, next to the designer himself, and Olivia Palermo embodied the modern-flapper look in her fringe two piece outfit. Lastly, Alexander Wang stood with his 2 latest campaign members in his collection, embodying both his higher end, and T sportswear collection. Chris Kattan, aka Mango, appeared in his latest (and very funny) campaign, which was released on Wang’s YouTube page today, here!

Top 5 Worst Dressed:

The woman in purple, Bridget Moynahan could’ve looked better; the material, the colour, the length… overall, she should have picked another design that would better flatter her looks. And Mira Duma’s Delpozo dress didn’t do much better for her either. Somehow, the Celine models pulled off the hair tuck better than her.

Next, Anna Chlumsky looked like she stepped in a blender with her interesting outfit. I don’t feel any piece in this look was cohesive with one another whatsoever. Following, Iman looked…interesting. Very gypsy, not worthy of any red carpet. Lastly, Cicely Tyson’s frock just did not look nice at all, and that is all I have to say.

5 Most Interesting Dressed:

Starting off, Sophia Bush looked pretty, but I can’t decide if I love or hate her Marchesa dress. Pretty design, but the design is weird. Lupita Nyong’o, cute as always, wore a quite interesting jumpsuit-thing. The print isn’t bad, and the shape flatters her body, but something isn’t quite right with the outfit.

In vintage Dior, Marion Cotillard made me bite my lip a little bit with confusion. She looked like a little girl wearing a dress to her first wedding; maybe if the wing-things were removed from the dress. Following that confusion, Keri Russell wore a unique gown. Somewhat Roman-toga-inspired, the dress sported a piece of fabric going across her chest; do we like or do we not?

Finally, the most talked about celebrity of the night, Rihanna. A congrats are in order to her for receiving this year’s Fashion Icon award, and she definitely deserved it with the many different looks she sported throughout these 365 days. But as stunning as Rihanna looks in this sparkly Swarovski-encrusted gown, it was actually more funny because it seemed like a big F-U at Instagram, who initially banned her for posting slightly-nude images. With this revealing dress, she definitely gave fans & followers something to talk about!
