Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow and Anne Hathaway turn heads at star-studded CFDA Awards 2023
Kim Kardashian led the star-studded red carpet at the 2023 CFDA Fashion Awards Gala.
The 2023 CFDA Fashion Awards Gala had no shortage of fashion theatrics, as well as the industry’s biggest names gracing its red carpet.
Stars like Anne Hathaway, Gwyneth Paltrow Kim Kardashian, and Demi Moore gathered at the Museum of Natural History in New York City Monday night to mark the so-called “Oscars of fashion.”
Hosted by Oscar winner Hathaway, the annual star-studded fete celebrated the brightest talents in the American fashion industry, and featured show-stopping looks from the Hollywood elite.
The event was sponsored by Amazon Fashion for the second year in a row, and featured a slew of A-listers dressed to the nines while rubbing elbows with the who’s who of fashion.
Hathaway, who presented this year’s award ceremony, opted for a denim look courtesy of Ralph Lauren.
The denim gown featured a navy button down top and flowing jean maxi skirt with a subtle floral print design and flowing train.
She accessorized her look with a diamond necklace that boasted an embedded sapphire-hue gem.
“The Devil Wears Prada” actress, who was announced as host after Sarah Jessica Parker dropped out last week, later changed into her second look of the night, which featured a red lace dress with floral embellishments.
Kim Kardashian also brought her fashion A-game to the event, opting for a chic black Chrome Hearts look that featured a gothic take on a halter neck gown.
The dress featured crystal stone closure in the back, and the mom of four topped her stylish look off with a messy bun, à la Pamela Anderson circa 90s.
The night’s biggest winner, Gwyneth Paltrow, opted for a “quiet luxury” ensemble that featured a black turtleneck bodysuit paired with a matching maxi skirt with a center slit, both from her G. Label by Goop.
She completed her low-key look with a pair of Jimmy Choo ankle-strap pumps.
Paltrow took home this year’s CFDA Fashion Award for Innovation for Goop, which she founded in 2008.
“It’s very validating,” the Oscar winner said of her win. “It’s such a respected organization, and to be acknowledged and awarded for our contribution, especially in the innovation space, feels very cool.”
The CFDA award went to Kim Kardashian’s shapewear brand, Skims, in 2022.
Elsewhere, designer Thom Browne, the CFDA’s new chairman, was the mastermind behind many of the night’s striking looks, including Serena Williams, Lil Yachty, Emma Chamberlain and Cynthia Erivo.
Tennis ace and 23-time Grand Slam winner Williams opted for a dramatic Thom Browne gown that featured a long train and massive sleeves.
She topped her look off with David Yurman jewelry.
“Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve used fashion as an outlet to express myself — fashion gave me the confidence to step on the court and own who I was, and where I knew I was going,” she said prior to the event.
Williams said she felt “incredibly honored to be receiving the prestigious Fashion Icon Award from the CFDA.”
Browne credited Williams for “bringing fashion to another world’ through her tennis career as well as “always staying true to herself, both on and off the court.”
