Aside from the Met Gala, the CFDA Fashion Awards are one of the fashion industry's biggest nights where celebs, designers and editors gather to celebrate the industry and its major players. Of course, the red carpet is a big deal. All of the looks from the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards were absolutely stunning this year, which should be expected since it's a fashion awards show.
The CFDA red carpet is a great opportunity for everyone to dress up and wear something a little more out of the box than they might normally wear. Remember Rihanna's sheer, flapper-esque naked dress? That was at the CFDA awards. Or when Beyonce wore her shimmery pinstripe suit? That was also the CFDA awards. Celebs can be bold, and that's what I like about it.
This time around, the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards red carpet was filled with sequins, bright colors and fun prints. All of your favorite and most fashionable celebs made it to the red carpet Monday evening (if you couldn't tell from the flood of Instagram pics in your feed), so you could say it was a pretty good turn out. One of my personal favorite looks was Priyanka Chopra in a black sequin Michael Kors number. So good.
So without further ado, here are all of the looks from the 2017 CFDA Fashion Awards.
Bella Hadid killing the game like always in this throwback hot pink power suit dress.
Heidi Klum is an actual goddess in this white floor length gown (can this be my future wedding dress??) as she poses next to designer Zac Posen.
Orange must be the color of the season, because I've seen a few attendees rocking this bright color. How cute is Eva Chen in this dress?
Martha Hunt proving that sequins are always a good look.
Karlie Kloss's all black ensemble is super hot. Look at that pleather skirt!
Mary Kate & Ashley Olsen
Can't have the CFDA's without the Olsen twins.
Lily Aldridge looks like a total babe in this simple nude dress with a hint of sparkle.
Cecile Richards, the President of Planned Parenthood, looks absolutely radiant in this blue midi dress. She is being honored at the 2017 CFDA Awards alongside Gloria Steinem and other trailblazers for women's rights.
Olivia Palermo wore an orange number from her Olivia Palermo x Banana Republic collab.
Gigi Hadid kept it simple in this floor length off white ensemble, adding in a hint of sparkle with her flats and a crystal encrusted choker.
I love seeing super models on the red carpet. Elsa Hosk's Victorian style dress is probably a little toast, but very pretty.
Mandy Moore shows off her confidence in this high neck leopard dress.
Iman Hammam definitely took a style risk for the 2017 CFDA Awards red carpet and I think it paid off. People will definitely be talking about this embroidered denim look.
Olivia Munn's is definitely having fun in this flirty floral dress with side cutouts.
Okay, I'm officially obsessed with Zhenya Katava's sheer black dress and I wish I had just one opportunity to get dressed up like this.
Brit Marling definitely wasn't afraid to take a risk with this blush dress. The only unforunate thing is that she kind of blends into the backdrop.
Ellie Kemper is so cute, I can't even handle it.
Yellow is definitely Kate Bosworth's color. Who knew.
Model Sara Sampaio stuns in this electric blue gown.
I really love this look on Jaimie Alexander — it definitely stands out from the pack.
Ummm, Gabrielle Union's outfit is dope. Also, she doesn't age so if anyone knows her secrets, please share.
This look is a little out there, but I think I like it. I like that Coco Rocha tried something unconventional.
Pattern mixing at its finest.
Sailor Brinkley Cook
The model (and daughter of Christie Brinkley) stunned in this floor length teal dress.
Can't forget about the queen bee.
Janelle Monae is actual goals in this geometric suit. Monae is being honored for her activism alongside Cecile Richards and Gloria Steinem.
Joan Smalls slays in this cutout black dress with a side slit. I would like to wear this dress one day. Wow.
Hailey Baldwin is white hot in this white dress with complementary furry blush accessories.
The Big Little Lies star keeps it simple in a black velvet gown and crystal necklace.
Washington was very on trend for the evening in this yellow sequin gown.
How beautiful does she look in this champagne dress?
White and silky is also another big trend from the night, if you couldn't tell.
Priyanka Chopra is radiant in this black sequin dress. Definitely one of my favorite looks from the evening.
Hari Nef looks amazing in this sheer floral dress.
