Now for the best dressed of this special night. . .
She absolutely stole the show as always. The unapologetic rebel wore a revealing, shimmering dress channeling Josephine Baker. I don’t think anyone could get away with this look but her. She was completely draped in Swarovski crystals paired with gloves and a pink fir stole. Rihanna was honored by the CFDA with the Fashion Icon Award and she proved that she was more than deserving.
The gorgeous model looked stunning in a beautiful, black sequin dress combined with Effy diamond earrings. Chanel was serving up old Hollywood glam. Her makeup and hair made for a flawless look.
Chrissy decided to go with a simple and chic look wearing an orange lace dress with a matching blazer. It was refreshing to see a pop of color at the awards. She paired the stylish dress with nude pumps and a gold clutch.
Looking like a young Diana Ross, the singer was dressed to the 9s. She has been in the media lot lately but she made sure that she changed the conversation in this jaw dropping gown. Her dress was designed by Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein and it accentuated her body perfectly. The pink lip and big hair brought the look home. Easily one of my favorite looks from Solange’s long list of fashionable feats.
