All The Can't-Miss Beauty Looks From The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

If you're already dreading the multiple layers and bone-chilling winds coming in the next few months (*raises hand*), chin up. There's one perk of winter, aside from the holidays — and that's red carpet season. Almost every morning, merely a few moments after wiping the dregs of mascara from our faces, we wake up to some of the freshest hairstyles and makeup looks seen on our favorite stars the night before.

Last night's 2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards started the season off right. While the ceremony honored designer Telfar Clemens' namesake line Telfar, the Council of Fashion Designers of America's winner of a $400,000 grand prize, our eyes were straying elsewhere.

Read: The gravity-defying updos, bright two-toned eyeshadow, and sleek blowouts seen on Ashley Graham, Selah Marley, and others were a bright spot in an otherwise dreary East Coast day (yay for more of those!). See the looks, ahead.

Marley's sculptural 'do reminds us of Lupita Nyong'o's 2016 Met Gala hairstyle. Go tall or go home, we say.

Grace Hartzel's barely-there, smudged green shadow and lightly glossed coral lips are effortlessly elegant.

For defined curls like Leyna Bloom's, try scrunching in a defining curl creme. We like Aunt Jackie's Curls & Coils Curl La La Defining Curl Custard.

Maria Borges' brown eyes sparkled even brighter with a sweep of iridescent purple shadow (and some killer falsies).

Hairstylist David Lopez created Ashley Graham's soft waves with a T3 Micro 1.5” Clip Barrel, and sprayed with Kenra's Blow Dry Mist and Heat Block Spray.

If you want to add some dimension to your short Afro, try playing around with a deep side part lik actress Cynthia Erivo did. Also, can we talk about her two-toned eyes?!

Teyana Taylor told us that we'd be seeing her short hair for a while... and there are absolutely no complaints on this end.

Nicki Minaj says she styled her own Barbie-blonde tresses with products from Kim Kimble's line.

A low ponytail and loose, face-framing tendrils, as seen on Brazilian model, Lais Ribeiro, always works.

And you know how we feel about middle parts, like Sara Sampaio's.

Rose gold hair still lives on — and Fernanda Ly is the perfect torch bearer.
