Last night, our fave celebs dazzled on the red carpet for the latest iteration of the CFDA Awards. As usual, they pulled out all of the stops – so we thought we’d do a round up of our fave looks from the event. To provide you with some blazing fashion inspo we’ve handpicked looks ranging from vintage classics, re-worked secondhand, to emerging designers. Buckle up for a sensational ride.
2022 CFDA FASHION ROUND UP
The Kar-Jenners, Addison Rae, and Julia Fox blaze the way at the 2022 CFDA Awards ceremony.
The Kar-Jenner Clan turned it out
The Kar-Jenners constantly have their foot on our necks, and their CFDA looks did not disappoint.
Kylie threw it back with a vintage Thierry Mugler ensemble from their 1999 collection, and it was a sight to behold. Consisting of a one-shoulder bodice, made entirely from ruched sheer mesh – the bodice slithers into a velvet skirt, with a tantalising high slit. She topped the look off with a sheer mesh glove, embodying Mugler’s sexily experimental ethos. We’re completely obsessed – and she proved that sometimes, bringing up the past isn’t always a bad idea.
Khloe opted for a Laquan Smith ensemble – slick, skin tight, and stunningly gorgeous. An asymmetrical cut out is slashed through her midriff, which contrasts the dress’ high mock neck. The train trails onto the ground – and the dress’ metallic quality shines and shimmers in the light. She certainly has us dazzled!
Miss Kim came to collect her award looking like a prize herself in a sheer, latex evening gown. The look is simple, yet inventive – as it plays on a classic silhouette with more avant-garde dimensions. The strapless dress clings to the business woman’s figure, and dimension is added through subtle layering. Opting for a mini dress underneath, it stops at the hips to reveal Kim’s legs – toeing the line between revealing and concealing.
Addison Rae went back to the future
It seems like the tide has shifted with Addison Rae, because she’s been turning out look after look. Sporting an ensemble from the British designer Gareth Pugh’s 2012 collection – Rae looks like a vision from the future. This otherworldly look consists of a space grey hooded dress, which is contrasted with a dramatic black train. The dress’ two layers create the most striking silhouette – so it helps that she paired the look with classic black pumps, so as not to overpower it. Rae has been killing the game lately, and she has us eager to see what else she pulls out of the bag.
Julia Fox is as sleek as ever
Since Julia Fox stepped onto the scene, she’s all anyone can ever talk about – and for good reason! Her look for this awards show is a shining example of why we’re in sheer adoration of her. Donning a custom look from the Milanese brand Valerievi, which prides itself in toeing the line between sexuality and femininity, this look completely embodies this ethos. The high turtleneck juxtaposes with the exposed bodice; the train and sleeves move with Fox theatrically. Finishing off the ensemble with a slicked back wet look with a twist – streaking grey throughout, Fox noted that this daring choice was a love letter to getting older. We love that she’s not afraid to embrace nature’s natural process – which without a doubt cements her place in our hearts.
Adesuwa Aighewi slices up the game
To finish off the round up, we thought we’d include the model Adesuwa Aighewi’s gorgeously avant-garde look from the LA-based designer Sami Miro Vintage. The ethical fashion house mainly uses locally sourced deadstock and vintage fabrics, which in the age of sustainable fashion, proves that something doesn’t have to be new in order to be inventive. This ensemble plays with the idea of businesswear, completely cutting up and reconstructing an oversized business suit – fit with an insane bustle on the back. Layers are added with leather corsetry, cinching and accentuating the model’s form. These leather elements are dispersed throughout, which culminate in some insane leg warmers. As the event is dubbed “The Oscars of Fashion”, it’s no surprise that we’ve been treated to some incredibly inventive and boundary-pushing fashion.
