There were three winners for the first time at Monday's CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund dinner — Aurora James of footwear brand Brother Vellies, Rio Uribe of streetwear label Gypsy Sport and womenswear designer Jonathan Simkhai — but the night was a major showcase for all the designers in attendance, most of whom brought models or celebrities as dates. Keynote speaker Riccardo Tisci dressed Lorde and Amanda Seyfried in black and white Givenchy looks, respectively, which were two of the more ornate dresses of the evening. Across the board, sleek solid dresses ruled the evening, especially in head-to-toe white. See: Jacquelyn Jablonski in a long Gabriela Hearst dress and dates Jennifer Fisher and Lake Bell in complementary Calvin Klein. Meanwhile, Jenna Lyons and Andreea Diaconu showed up in sharp, luxurious suits. That's not to say the evening was devoid of pattern and color: Elsa Hosk pulled off a bright plaid Tanya Taylor look and Molly Bair wowed in a dark cerulean lace Orley outfit for her first year at the event.
Fittingly, the evening's winners dressed a bevy of beautiful women including Taylor Hill and Cindy Bruna in Jonathan Simkhai and Zendaya in Brother Vellies furry sandals. What better way to commemorate the career-changing occasion than with some of the best red carpet looks of the evening?
