While there were winners were grinners at the CFDA Awards, the real action lay on the red carpet. Celebs including models, actors and TV presenters from all over the world flocked to the event to honour America's finest design talent.

Other familiar faces in the crowd included Alexa Chung (wearing Marc Jacobs), the Olsen twins, Brooke Shields, Rachel Weisz and Lara Stone. To see what they wore, click the image below.
