New York City is known for its lively, nighttime atmosphere and this especially rang true on Nov. 7. You see, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) is throwing its annual fête at Casa Cipriani to celebrate esteemed designers, stylists, and notable tastemakers in the industry. High-profile attendees included actors Natasha Lyonne (who is the host of the night), Kim Kardashian, Kerry Washington, and Gigi Hadid. Every person on the invite list is dressed to impress, of course, and you can bet the aforementioned stars brought their best looks to the 2022 CFDA Fashion Awards in Partnership with Amazon Fashion.
As with every red carpet event, there were some early arrivals. Katie Holmes owned the spotlight upon her entrance in a shimmery dress from Jonathan Simkhai. (The designer and actor also posed side by side for the cameras.) Elsewhere on the carpet, Ricci brought the playful and romantic vibes in her Rodarte number while Julia Fox made a sultry appearance in a cutout look. Celebrity appearances aside, this night will also belong to the winners of the American Womenswear Designer of the Year award (past winners have included Christopher John Rogers and Gabriela Hearst) and the American Accessory Designer of the Year award, which was bestowed upon Telfar Clemens of Telfar last year, to name a few honorees.
As you wait to see who takes home which coveted titles, check out what everyone’s wearing to the celebratory dinner ahead.
