The annual Council of Fashion Designers of America fashion awards happened yesterday, which is an award show that honors the top designers in women and menswear and accessories. Everyone from established designers to those in fashion school get the opportunity to have their work celebrated. As a non-profit organization, the CFDA uses the award show to raise money for student scholarships and support designers during other shows, such as New York Fashion Week. Emily Blunt hosted in a tangerine Christopher John Rogers suit and was personally chosen by longtime designer and chairman, Tom Ford.
This year, two prominent young, fashionable actresses received awards for their style and their work with designers. Zendaya was awarded the Fashion Icon Award. At 25 years old, she is the youngest to receive the award and joins the ranks of other incredible recipients such as Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez. Zendaya wore a red Vera Wang ensemble with a crop top and bubble waist skirt.
For the first time, the CFDA gave out the Face of the Year Award to Anya Taylor-Joy, star of The Queen’s Gambit and global ambassador of fashion and makeup for Dior. She wore a vintage Oscar de la Renta dress with animal print gloves and hat.
Other stars to appear on the red carpet included: Ciara in Tom Ford, Emily Ratajkowski in Miu Miu, and Squid Game star HoYeon Jung in Louis Vuitton.
