CFDA Awards 2017

Just when you thought all the red carpet fun was over, the CFDA Awards – the unofficial “Oscars of Fashion” – rolled into town last night at the Hammerstein Ballroom here in New York City.

Although not as celebrated as say… the Met Gala, the festivities considered to be one of the industries hottest parties drew crowds of celebrities, designers, models, and style icons like Nicole Kidman, Lupita Nyong’o, and Bella Hadid, there to take in the amazing fashion and celebrate the evening’s winners.

And this year’s attendees like the years before, did not disappoint with their stunning red carpet glamour.
