Today's CFDA Awards drew an impressive crowd mixed with models, actors, fashion designers and industry heavyweights alike. Mary-Kate Olsen stood out from the fashion pack — and her sister — with shiny new brown locks, while Mandy Moore, Joan Smalls, Busy Philipps and Kate Bosworth jumped on the pink lip brigade with different interpretations of the candy-hued trend. Step inside our gallery for a closer look (with zoom and all!).
The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards were held in NYC today, with some of Hollywood’s most stylish celebrities coming together to celebrate design talent. Mary-Kate Olsen, who showed off new, darker hair, won the womenswear designer of the year award with her sister Ashley for their work on The Row. Kate Bosworth arrived on the arm of designer Joseph Altuzarra, while Dakota Fanning was joined by the Proenza Schouler duo. Rachel Zoe wore one of her own creations and brought husband Rodger Berman as her date, and inside the cocktail event she linked up with Lily Collins for some photos. Other stars at the CFDA Awards included Mandy Moore, Julianne Hough and Zoe Saldana, while models and fashion insiders also brought their stylish A-game.
Today's CFDA Awards are akin to the Oscars of the fashion industry; shining light on the most talented and most creative in the field.

We've rounded up the genetically blessed beauties who has graced the red carpet (so far). Stay tuned for more updates as we update the gallery with the best dressed models for the CFDA Awards.
We're backing up from yesterday's frock-filled MTV Movie Awards with the 2012 CFDAs, which next to the Met Ball Gala is like the Oscars of the fashion industry. Already we're seeing some of our favourite designers, models and bloggers sharing behind-the-scenes snaps of their party prep via social media channels. From Garance Doré's gorgeous Derek Lam gown to Prabal Gurung's well-dressed date to The Man Repeller's laid-back look; we're getting the goss before the fash' pack hits the red rug. Step inside for a first look at this year's CFDA best dressed.
Last night, celebs stepped out in style to celebrate the 2011 CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund finalists at Chateau Marmont. We spied three particularly fashionable ladies in the crowd: Dianna Agron made an appearance wearing a black and white printed dress by Libertine paired with pointy-toe pumps. Kate Bosworth sdid mix 'n' match in a two piece ensemble by Proenza Schouler. Meanwhile, Michelle Monaghan opted for a minimally modern look comprised of a colour-block skirt and simple tee. We think each of the three look fab in their own way, but which look do you like best?
It may not be as big a fashion event as the grand Met Costume Institute Gala, but the CFDA Fashion Awards, which were held at the Lincoln Center in New York City today, still manage to attract a very stylish crowd that brings together actors, musicians, models and designers. Miranda Kerr continued her streak of sexy post-baby outfits in a black cut-out dress with a thigh-high slit, while Jessica Alba draped her baby bump in an orange and purple number. A range of stars opted for white on the night, including Sofia Coppola, Whitney Port, Kanye West and Kerry Washington, while bright colours also reigned supreme, with Ashley Greene and Alessandra Ambrosio making bold statements with their dresses.

A memo clearly went around before today's CFDA Awards as all the models of the moment were wearing their nails nude. As in nada, naked, sans polish. It's something we saw at Chanel's cruise collection 2011/12, which means only one thing, peeps: no polish is the new polish. Bucking the trend (and brightening our day) was Kirsten Dunst who went with mint and Shenae Grimes who opted for orange, while Sucker Punch actress Carla Gugino and Desperate Housewives' Marcia Cross busted out the black. Lady Gaga kept her look sharp (literally) with red talons and Whitney Port went with a metallic mani.
We expected today's CFDA Fashion Awards to be full of killer red carpet looks (which they were), but we didn't expect there to be so much poke-your-eye-out colour! Bright, verging on neon, solid blocks of colour to be precise. Everyone from models Chanel Iman and Alessandra Ambrosio, to J.Crew designer Jenna Lyons, to beauty queen Aerin Lauder, to a bloomin' beautiful Jessica Alba opted for ensembles in hard to miss shades. The real trick to pulling off this look? Because of the stand out colour you don't need to go to town on the accessorizing, meaning you're out the door in five minutes flat. Head turning, modern but a cinch to pull off; that's some intelligent red carpet dressing. Bring on the brights!
Celebs, designer and models mingled at the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards and all were sporting an array of stunning beauty looks, which complemented their designer frocks fabulously.

Check out all the celebs in attendance to one of fashion's biggest night of nights.
