Tonight in New York City, the Council of Fashion Designers of America hosts its annual award ceremony, honoring those who have innovated and excelled in the fashion industry this year (the event makes its grand return after being cancelled last year due to the pandemic). Emily Blunt will be hosting the evening’s festivities at The Pool Room in Midtown Manhattan. Among those up for accolades this year include heavyweight designers Rick Owens, Off-White and Louis Vuitton’s Virgil Abloh, Miuccia Prada, and Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli. First-time nominees also include some of fashion's buzziest talents, such as Edvin Thompson of Theophilio, Maisie Schloss of Maisie Wilen, and Jerry Lorenzo of Fear of God.
Designers aside, there will also be tons of celebrities in attendance this evening. Zendaya will receive the Fashion Icon Award, while Anya Taylor-Joy will receive the Face of the Year Award and Dapper Dan the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award. Before they head to the stage to receive their trophies, however, guests will also hit the red carpet in their most stylish looks—a step and repeat that’s been known to produce some iconic fashion moments in the past (Rihanna’s naked Adam Selman dress in 2014, anyone?). Below, be sure to check back here in real time to see what all of the A-list nominees, designers, models, and celebrities are wearing on the red carpet of fashion’s most anticipated night.
