As we’ve come to expect year after year, fashion’s leading ladies served up another round of red carpet excellence at the 2015 CFDA Awards in NYC. After all, on an evening that celebrates the industry’s most outstanding visionaries, it seems only fitting that the attendees would step out in their cocktail best for the occasion. Here, Rachel shares her best-dressed list from the event.

Gigi Hadid in Michael Kors
"Gigi in a shimmering gold jumpsuit? It’s total disco-queen perfection."
Kim Kardashian West in Proenza Schouler
"No surprise that Kim stole the carpet in a statement-making look. Love seeing her in Proenza!"
Natasha Poly in Michael Kors
"From her ensembles at Cannes to this, Natasha has been killing it on the carpet lately. There’s no way to describe this Michael Kors look other than red hot."
Lily Aldridge in Thakoon
"A tasteful way to do a plunging neckline, thigh-high slit and sheer details, Lily nails it in Thakoon."
Liya Kebede in Altuzarra
"I’m obsessed with the color and print of this Altuzarra dress, and Liya wears it perfectly."
Daphne Groeneveld in Tom Ford
"This tuxedo moment on Daphne is everything—Tom Ford (who took home tonight's well-deserved Menswear Designer of the Year award) knows how to take a menswear silhouette and make it sexy."
Joan Smalls in Calvin Klein
"An ode to '70s glamour at its finest—Joan's plunging white ensemble and purply smoky eye are as sultry as it gets."
Hilary Rhoda in J. Mendel
"I love the dark romance of Hilary’s dress—against her peaches-and-cream complexion, it’s completely striking."
Karlie Kloss in Diane Von Furstenberg
"Love the ever-statuesque Karlie in a deep-v neckline. Her red lip is a gorgeous finishing touch."
Dree Hemingway in The Row
"Dree pulls off understated glamour like no one else. She makes a simple trench look amazingly cool."
