The Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards, most widely known as the birthplace of Rihanna’s naked dress, routinely gives celebrities an excuse to get real high fashion on us.
With designers and celebrities mingling around one another, the CFDA Awards are akin to the Met Gala, but rather than it really being about a celebration of art, it’s about celebrating fashion and the most talented within the industry.
Though Monday night we didn’t get a moment akin to Rihanna’s Swarovski-crystal-covered, see-through gown, we did get fashion highlights like Issa Rae in Pyer Moss, Naomi Campbell in a fringe-covered Calvin Klein and Whoopi Goldberg in a bright fuchsia suit with a large-brimmed hat.
Here are our best dressed of the night.
Isse Rae in Pyer Moss
The host for the night, Rae had multiple outfits during the show, but made an effort to only wear black designers.
