For fashion insiders, the CFDA Awards are basically the equivalent of the Oscars. And like the Oscars, the red carpet is showtime for the industry—a chance for designers to show their collections in real life on their current muses. But all the excitement wasn’t just on the red carpet—a quick scroll through our Instagram feeds confirmed that there was lots of action going on behind the scenes, too. From Joan Smalls and Jennifer Fisher’s pre-gaming selfie to Jacquelyn Jablonski and Hanne Gaby Odiele’s candid snap from the after-party at The Top of the Standard, there was no shortage of buzzworthy moments captured on the ’gram last night. From pre-ceremony primping to after-party shenanigans, see 20 of the best behind-the-scenes moments from this year’s CFDA Awards in our slideshow, above.
