Fashionable faces

The actresses and models who dazzled at the 2018 CFDA Awards displayed a clever combination of derring-do and restraint. Here are our best looks

Although a lesser known event than the Met Gala, which took place a month ago in New York, the CFDA Awards — also known as the Oscars of fashion — has seen some great looks in 2018. Sure many women opted for the fresh-faced look, but many others also took small risks that paid off. From Lupita Nyong'o's bronzed lip to the vibrant yellow of Amandla Stenberg's eyeliner to Martha Hunt's blink and you'll miss it diamanté accents, these women showed a playful, flirtatious side that never veered into tackiness.

Others wore their classic looks amped up — whether it was Kim Kardashian's signature glow and full lashes paired with a wavy, high ponytail or Ashley Graham's flawless skin and bright lip. Hair took on a more relaxed vibe as compared to other red carpets, with severe yet unprissy centre parts and natural texture (on Stendberg and singer Kahlani) being the biggest trends we saw. There to showcase the work of designers and to honour CFDA Icon Naomi Campbell, we loved how each woman shone bright without trying to steal the show.
