The CFDA Awards are the fashion world’s answer to the Oscars, much like the British Fashion Awards are the fashion equivalent of the BAFTAs.
Fashion’s finest turned out in full force to honour the likes of Oscar de la Renta, Proenza Schouler and Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy; Famous faces included: Anna Wintour, Jessica Chastain, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn and Hilary Clinton.
Though not up for awards themselves, both Erin Wasson and Nicole Richie stole the show.
Richie paired her Marc Jacobs (A/W ’13) gold slip-style, bias-cut maxi, with a slicked back high bun and bright glossy, red lips.
Wasson, the stalwart shepherdess of rock & roll model style, in the US (sorry Kate is Queen over here!) fittingly accompanied model-favourite, Alexander Wang, in a dress by the designer.
Allowing his clever cut-outs and athletic cut in the whitest of whites to take centre-stage, Erin opted for a low centre-parted bun and pared-back make-up.
Inspiration for the onslaught of summer bashes soon to come.
