On Monday night, the annual CFDA Fashion Awards took place at New York’s Brooklyn Museum, where fashion’s biggest creatives, influencers and up-and-coming stars gathered to celebrate the work of this year’s nominated designers and honorees (click HERE for the list) including Raf Simons, Diane von Furstenberg and Edward Enninful.

The night saw a number of daring red carpet fashion choices, as well as a particularly daring joke made by host Issa Rae. “I’m about as fashionable as Kanye is black ― only when it’s convenient. That joke was my choice, just like slavery,” she said. West was not present at the ceremony, but his wife, Kim Kardashian, was there to accept the Influencer Award. See below for all of the winners.
