An evening celebrating fashion’s best, brightest, and most innovative is always bound to inspire an equally notable beauty turnout. Aptly positioned just as we enter a period of fashion month withdrawal, tonight’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards ceremony at New York’s Cipriani South Street called in attendees willing to serve looks that began at the crown, offering a wealth of inspiration for those who may be experiencing an aesthetic drought.
Fans of color should look to Jameela Jamil, whose sateen chartreuse suiting spurred a coordinated eye moment comprised of a swoop of yellow liner and coats of green mascara applied liberally to her upper and lower lashlines. The sisters Hadid brought eye-catching moments as usual, with Gigi’s sleek ponytail and nude makeup palette a timeless counter to Bella’s stylized updo, reminiscent of Beetlejuice’s Lydia Deetz—a character who the supermodel knows well—in its piece-y execution. Ashley Graham coupled her pregnant silhouette with Old Hollywood hair and a kittenish flick of onyx liner, while Taylor Hill balanced her tuxedo with an interminable tumble of undone brunette hair; and Lala Anthony presented an entirely new placement for the year’s well-loved facial jewels. And in Candice Swanepoel’s world, the only thing fresher than preternaturally dewy skin is a duet of recently snipped orchids. Here, the best beauty looks from the evening.
