The stars were shining bright on one of fashion’s biggest nights!

Celebrities recently walked the red carpet for the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards in Brooklyn, New York. The annual awards, organized by the The Council of Fashion Designers of America, honor the best designers and influencers in the fashion industry.

The CFDAs red carpet is usually a chance for stars to try out slightly more experimental looks, and the 2018 awards were no exception. There were feathers, fringe and bold, graphic prints galore.

One of the biggest trends for female guests this year? Suits! Celebrities including Cate Blanchett, Diane Lane and Brooke Shields rocked these stylish, menswear-inspired looks.
