Bella Hadid In Off-White & Other CFDA Awards Looks We Loved

Seth Meyers may have joked that the CFDA Awards are like the Oscars of fashion only to people in the industry, but Monday night's celebration of artistic talent reminded everyone — beyond the designers, editors, stylist, and more — that what we wear (and the people who make it) holds weight in all aspects of our lives.
Beyond the accomplishments — Raf Simons receiving both the Womenswear Designer of the Year and the Menswear Designer of the Year Awards for his work at Calvin Klein — the activism — Janelle Monae giving a politically-charged speech while receiving honors for her work with the Women's March — and the emotional reflections — Anna Wintour posthumously presenting the Fashion Icon Award to her friend and colleague Franca Sozzani — was, of course, some really good fashion.

Alek Wek's bright (and fresh-off-the-runway) Balenciaga boots have us believing in neon once again.

Only Olivia Palermo could remind us that dresses under $150 (from Banana Republic, to boot) are perfectly acceptable for a red carpet.

Coach dominated the carpet last night. Adwoa Aboah toughened up her feminine checkered maxi dress with a two-toned studded leather jacket.

Honestly, Rowan Blanchard can do no wrong in our eyes. This cheery, high-necked Coach dress is both mature and youthful at the same time — something only our favorite teen could pull off.

Playing Rowan's gothier counterpart is Hari Nef in a see-through mesh version of the Coach gown.

Tracy Reese in, you guessed it, Tracy Reese. Swoon.

Suited up! And in Off-White, no less. Is Bella Hadid giving Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction vibes? No, just us?

Kerry Washington in Prabal Gurung. Does this woman ever not look good?

Can we just talk about this millennial pink coordination? Brother Vellies' Aurora James and Hailey Baldwin (in a Cushnie et Ochs dress and James' shoes and bag) take the idea of Instagram-worthy outfits to the next-level.

Janet Mock does a D.I.Y. cold-shoulder in Jonathan Simkhai, and the results are epic.

We don't want to limit Amanda Peet's Brock Collection dress to just the word "pretty," but that's exactly what is it. The off-the-shoulder, pale purple dress is the type of gown both our five-year-old and our 25-year-old selves would happily agree on.

Gigi Hadid or the latest Olsen sister? In this longline, monochrome set from The Row, Hadid would blend right in with the designer sisters. The model topped off her look with custom Swarovski Stuart Weitzman mules.

What do you get when you pair Diane Kruger and Monse? This. Look. Excuse us, lewk.

Threes a trend, and all three Haim sisters (Danielle, Este, and Alana) wore the same DVF dress (and matching booties!) in different colors. Coordination at its finest.

Lace, ruffles, a pop of color. Elsa Hosk's Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini look has all the makings of a red carpet hit.

BRB, buying a leopard dress, STAT. Thanks Mandy Moore (and Kate Spade!) for the inspiration.

Chloë Sevigny doesn't need to prove she's cool (she's the OG It girl, after all), but this black and white Proenza Schouler dress reminds us why she's always been (and will always be) on top.

Sasha Lane and Chloë Grace Moretz make up the ultimate dream team in their Coach ensembles. 100 points to Sasha for wearing the first polo we've ever see on the CFDA Awards red carpet.

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen in their own The Row designs. Simple. Classic. Everything.

More is more, always, and Laura Harrier's Rosie Assoulin look reminds us exactly why.

Because the sun never sets on a badass. And if there's anyone who's seriously badass, it's Janelle Monae (especially when she's in Christian Siriano).

Obviously Meg Ryan steals the show. And in Christian Siriano? We couldn't think of a better pair.

Okay, Imaan Hammam. Show us just how well you can make denim work on a red carpet. (And, props to Adam Selman for crafting this creation).

Gabrielle Union is pulling off three statement pieces without making things feel too crowded. This Rodarte ensemble features all the best trends — a shimmery coat, a mesh top, and studded cropped trousers — while still looking classic.

Nicole Kidman is back with a vengeance. This Oscar de la Renta gown is just the latest piece on her journey to complete style domination.
