A-list celebs didn’t just show up to the CFDA Fashion Awards on Nov. 7, they served major looks. Big names from both the fashion and entertainment industries—such as TikTok star Addison Rae and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour—made an appearance at the star-studded affair.

Since 1981, the international fashion community has annually honored the “best and brightest in American design” at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Fashion Awards. Winners are celebrated with the highest fashion honor for their contributions to American fashion in categories like womenswear, menswear and accessories as well as journalism, creative vision, personal style and lifetime achievement.

Lenny Kravitz won this year’s Fashion Icon Award. “What I’ve learned along the way is being yourself is the most important thing you can do,” he said. “And that you’re going to make mistakes. I certainly have had my fair share of fashion fails, but that’s part of evolving.”

Here’s a rundown of some of the best looks from the event.
