This evening in New York City, the 2022 CFDA Awards-which have been dubbed the "Oscars of fashion"-celebrated those who championed innovation and excellence within the American fashion industry this year. As usual, the red carpet before the grand ceremony was filled with top designers, models, and celebrities-all of whom brought their A-game for the affair.
The main style themes of the night? Classic evening glamour, with shining embellishments and strong silhouettes. Many also chose to support smaller fashion labels, putting the spotlight on a new generation of talent.
Katie Holmes, for one, wore a crystal cage dress from Jonathan Simkhai with a swishy fringe hemline-a modern take on the 1920s flapper dress. Christina Ricci also turned heads in Rodarte's floral gown with a lace bodice, complete with metallic flowered shoulders. Supermodel Amber Valletta slipped into Conner Ives's red embroidered gown with an asymmetrical strappy shoulder detail.
Vintage also had its moment on the red carpet when Kylie Jenner pulled off a sheer, pleated gown from Thierry Mugler's fall 1999 collection. Cher also pointed to her long-standing love of Chrome Hearts-she was a big wearer of the label in the nineties!-by wearing the label's leather moto dress tonight. Other stars, like Kim Kardashian, chose to stick to their style signatures. The Skims founder wore a skintight latex evening gown by Dolce & Gabbana. Kim and latex go together like bread and butter, after all. - www.vogue.com
