There’s never a dull moment in New York City, even on a chilly Monday night in late November. Yes, we’re referring to last evening’s lively, star-studded 33rd Annual Gotham Awards, an event that honors achievements in independent films. A-listers arrived on the red carpet in droves, ready to celebrate their recent projects — and celebrate they did. A few highlights? Past Lives took home the coveted prize for Best Feature, while Lily Gladstone was awarded Outstanding Lead Performance for her role in The Unknown Country. Naturally, attendees didn’t hold back when choosing their outfits for the 2023 Gotham Awards, as the celebrity fashion moments were some of the best we’ve witnessed all year (really).

Stars gathered at Cipriani Wall Street, where most guests hit the red carpet in head-to-toe black looks. For starters, Margot Robbie channeled her beloved on-screen character by opting for a noir Prada dress with a coordinating sheer cape, which nodded to the Black Magic Ensemble Barbie doll from 1964 (shoutout to her stylist Andrew Mukamal for putting together the show-stopping look). Also riding the LBD wave was Greta Lee, who stunned in an open-back Loewe number. Penélope Cruz, on the other hand, broke the mold, donning a white see-through lace gown from Chanel's Fall/Winter 2023 collection.

If last night was any indication, award season is returning with gusto. So without further ado, check out the best outfits from the 2023 Gotham Awards.
