On Monday night, actresses, models, designers, and fashion insiders gathered at New York City’s Brooklyn Museum for the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards, wearing their glittering best. And while the CFDA Awards are a celebration of sartorial talent, there was no shortage of scene-stealing beauty looks on the red carpet worth saluting.
Model Jasmine Sanders wrapped her blunt, center-parted ponytail with a strip of black, velvet cloth, while Josephine Skriver elevated her Zuhair Murad gown with sleek, ironed lengths and an onyx pout. Bold lipstick also found fans in Gigi Hadid and Lupita Nyong’o, whose metallic gold lips nearly stole the show. Shanina Shaik turned up the drama by decorating her bombshell waves with a futuristic, gold headpiece, while CFDA Fashion Icon Award recipient Naomi Campbell kept things simple with sleek, poker-straight lengths and fresh-faced glow. Also being honored on the night was Kim Kardashian West, who made sure all eyes were on her when she accepted the first-ever CFDA Influencer Award by sporting a high, unfussy ponytail, bronzed-out eye makeup, and lit-from-within skin.
