Today is Thursday, Feb. 8, which means that it's officially New York Fashion Week. We know that even without looking at calendar, of course, because New York's annual amfAR Gala happened last night at — where else? — Cipriani Wall Street. And it's not NYFW until an amfAR Gala happens!

A bevy of models, actresses and erstwhile famous people (Olivia Culpo) showed up, as they tend to do, to help the organization celebrate individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the fight against HIV/AIDS. Those beautiful humans included Ashley Graham (in Vivienne Westwood), Joan Smalls (in Dolce & Gabbana) and Andreja Pejic (in Oscar de la Renta), as well as Sienna Miller (in Dior Haute Couture) and the evening's host Taraji P. Henson (in David Koma), who seemed to be having the most fun of anyone.
