Last night, the Council of Fashion Designers of America held their annual CFDA Fashion Awards (like the Academy Awards, for designers) at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Queen B scooped the Fashion Icon Award, the CFDA Board of Directors gave a Special Tribute Award to the fashion legacy that was David Bowie and Lena Dunham wore some really fantastic shoes. Check out the full list of winners and see the 10 Best Dressed below.

The Olsens arrived true to form in head to toe black. They were up for Womenswear Designer and Accessories Designer of the Year awards for label The Row. Although they didn’t win, The Row has already scooped three CFDA Fashion Awards – twice for womenswear designer of the year, in 2012 (just six years after the brand’s birth) and 2015, and once for Accessory Designer of the year in 2014.

If Jenna Lyons was there, you can trust she made the best-dressed list. Even if she wasn’t there, she made the best-dressed list. In fact, there is no best-dressed list that doesn’t feature Jenna Lyons.

Creative Director of Gucci Alessandro Michele was honored with the International Award. His designs are celebrated for being eccentric – as you can tell from his pink, detailed tux.
