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.

Monday night’s annual celebration of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute’s Met Gala 2017 marked one of the highlights of New York City’s spring time festivities.

Often marked by some of the most daring and albeit stunning gowns and silhouettes; everyone remembers Rihanna at the 2015 Gala, Beyonce’s latex gown at last year’s red carpet and who could forget Kim K at 2013’s event; the annual Gala serves as one of the museum’s biggest fundraising events and is typically the grand opening of the annual design exhibit.
