You might call the CFDA awards the Oscars for the fashion fraternity. For the uninitiated, CFDA or the Council of Fashion Designers of America holds an annual awards function where the best fashion designers, both upcoming and established are recognised for their contribution. It is arguably one of the biggest nights in American fashion and know what else it’s got? A red carpet.

Models, celebrities, designers and their muses walked the red carpet at this year’s award ceremony, and we at Team BeBeautiful love ourselves a good red carpet roundup. We have some absolute gems from 2019’s edition of the CFDA awards.

Need you more proof that ponytails are red carpet worthy? Whether you love a sleek one, like Jennifer Lopez, a curly one, like Bella Hadid or a messy one, like Laura Harrier, rest assured that this practical hairstyle ain’t just for the gym anymore!

Red has always ruled the red carpet

There were a lot of stunning red outfits on the red carpet and we saw them being paired with a bold red pout. Case in point: the stunning Lily Aldridge and Emily Ratajkowski! While the former teamed the red lip with a sleek low bun, the latter wore her hair in loose tousled waves with her red lip.

Shailene Woodley wore a bright irreverent swipe of orange on her eyes (love!), and Olivia Palermo wore a copper cat eye which was also somehow a smokey eye! Can we take a second to marvel at the foil (yes, foil) that was placed on Olivia Palermo’s hair? Talk about taking glitter hair all the way to the stratosphere!

The Rasta and the Bohemian

Ciara wore her hair braided in dreads and piled them up high in a half up half down ‘do. Talk about making a statement! Yara Shahidi wore a sculptural hairstyle that had cornrows and a bun, with arches created out of a few braids. She wins the hair game hands down!
