Every year, the CFDA Fashion Awards gives recognition to the best in the industry. Previous honorees include Donna Karan, Gucci’s Alessandro Michele, and David Bowie, among many others. As usual, there’s also the show-stopping red carpet looks of celebrities like Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, and the Olsen Twins.
While many of us already know this year’s honorees like Rick Owens, Pat McGrath, and the late Franca Sozzani, we also want to do our own version. Take this as a quick shout-out to the evening’s fashionable bunch. This is also a way to see what else happened behind the scenes.
Best in monochrome: Janelle Monae
Board of Directors Tribute recipient Janelle Monae showed up in a black and white Christian Siriano number. The sleek design reminded us of a modern-day spy outfit, especially with her round Karen Walker shades which added a touch of mystery.
Supermodel Coco Rocha made a statement with her new raven-black mohawk and Cynthia Rowley outfit. Both had a fun moment at the CFDA’s interactive Instagram booth. This is how you make the most of a 10 to 15-second video.
