The Best, Worst And Wildest Looks At The CFDA Awards

Two words: Janelle. Monae.

The red carpet is to an awards show as the cocktail hour is to a wedding: It’s the indisputable best part.

So when the annual CFDA Awards honor the designers who make those red carpets possible, needless to say, the arrivals area is nothing short of a fashion spectacle. 

This year, the likes of Kenneth Cole, Pat McGrath and Calvin Klein’s Raf Simons were honored inside the event, but our accolades ― for best, worst and wildest looks ― were awarded outside. Janelle Monae maintained her position as resident risk-taker in asymmetrical Christian Siriano, Gabrielle Union knocked it out of the park in Rodarte and Gloria Steinem wore sparkly black Michael Kors bell bottoms.

Need we say more? Check out all the most memorable looks from the 2017 CFDA Awards below.
