2016 CFDA Awards best and worst dressed

CFDA Fashion Awards 2015: Red Carpet Highlights
CFDA Fashion Awards 2015: Red Carpet Highlights

No awards show red carpet would be complete without a list of the best and worst dressed stars, and the CFDA Awards are no different!

The stakes are raised, compared to other awards shows, however, because the CFDA Fashion Awards are attended by only the most influential people in the fashion world. That makes coming up with a 'worst dressed' list pretty challenging.

Designers, supermodels and celebrities flocked to the CFDAs dripping in crystals (this year the Council partnered with Swarovski) and fringe, rocking bold hues and killer shoes. The beauty, talent and creativity of CFDA attendees is unparalleled when it comes to awards shows, so it's only right that they get their own special event to really shine.

Check out the ensembles that made us swoon -- and the ones that didn't quite cut it -- below:
