The style set turned out in force on Monday night for the CFDA Awards in New York, and made sure to dress for the occasion. Whether they were nominees, honored guests, or just friends of those in the industry, the attendees dressed up in some of the best fashion available. If there’s any night to put on fashion’s finest, then this was it.
We put together some of our top menswear looks for evening:
The host for the evening arrived wearing a Band of Outsiders black suit, but during the awards he donned the black Comme Des Garçons lace dress Marc Jacobs wore to the Met Gala last month with the white boxers.
White Collar star Matt Bomer wore a shiny Calvin Klein jet-black suit with a black buttoned white dress shirt and a black bow tie.
The designer bought a touch of elegance by once gain wearing velvet. You might remember he also rocked the Met Gala in a stylin’ maroon velvet jacket matched with a purple bow tie.
One of the biggest fashion surprises of the night was an understated Marc Jacobs. The designer suited up for the fashion awards ceremony. His traditional black tux was styled with a Louis Vuitton clutch. Who would’ve thought that Marc would be the more reserved of the bunch.
While some stuck to the black tie dress code, this is a fashion event there were bound to be some risk takers.
We were torn with this look. We appreciate he took a fashion risk and wore shorts, tuxedo ones but they are still shorts. Pharrell adds to the quirkiness of the outfit by having his shirt sleeves extend well past his jacket, an rather large bowtie and completes the look with a beanie - looks like he is hiding a blonde dye job. Pharrell made it work but this is definitely for the more daring.
The stylist/ reality star was most definitely not a wallflower wearing a Kate Spade ‘Florence Broadhust’ Japanese floral print suit. The beautiful black-and-white suit, custom-made by Martin Greenfield, was styled with Christian Louboutin shoes.
Cameron wore a custom Nicole Miller suit with a coordinated custom Rod Keenan hat. He accessorized with a Shamballa Jewels medallion necklace, a custom Lisa Kingsley bag and bi-colour Burberry shoes. We really like the print of the suit and it definitely brings a more casual look to the formal affair.
John Waters who accepted awards on behalf of both Johnny Depp and Rei Kawakubo who is the designer at the head of Comme des Garçons, arrived at the star studded event looking daper in a Comme des Garçons paisley blazer and bright orange sneakers.
