Of course everyone looked amazing at this week’s CFDA Awards, but there are a few looks I can’t stop thinking about. Not only did Aubrey Plaza show up in a tuxedo dress, but Anya Taylor-Joy matched leopard-print gloves to a hat and managed to look characteristically stunning while doing so. Harry and Meghan also made a red-carpet appearance at a gala wearing a beautiful red gown and traditional suit. Plus, DJ Kitty Ca$h might have worn my favorite boots yet.

I love the use of a black-tipped boot. Worn with a long leather blazer, this outfit screams cool.

Anything that involves a matching top and bottom is a yes for me, and this combo is extra fun. Plus, it looks pretty comfy.

Aubrey Plaza in a tux dress? Yes please! Plus, the texture on this jacket is amazing.

The neckline on this gown is everything, and Meghan looks stunning in red. Harry obviously got the memo as well — just look at his little red flower.

A lace top that is more skin than top is something I wish I could pull off, and designer Laquan Smith does it flawlessly.

Anything branded can be a major miss, but Sink looks so elegant in this square cut top and flared pants. I love the bold red lip.

This dress reminds me of 13 Going on 30 in all the best ways.

Never have I ever seen a group so coordinated and still look so good. I love Wang’s use of pink, and Suarez’s studded white boots.

The hat! The gloves! The dress! If anyone can pull off all the details of this outfit, it is Anya Taylor-Joy.
