JEssica Chastain, Anna Wintour and Alessandra Ambrosio attend the 2013 CFDA Awards

The CFDA Awards went down last night and the big winners were Proenza Schouler (womenswear designer of the year), Phillip Lim (accessories designer of the year) and Suno (Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent in Womenswear). Oh, and everyone who’s famous for their red carpet presence showed up too–Jessica Chastain, Rooney Mara, Kerry Washington and a whole slew of models.

Here’s what the very stylish and the very victimized wore to the so-called Oscars of fashion.

Anna Wintour attends the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards on June 3, 2013 in New York, United States.Guess we should start with Anna Wintour, who presides over this whole event like an eagle in a fur stole.

Model Alessandra Ambrosio attends the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards on June 3, 2013 in New York, United States.  (Photo by Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images)We normally roll our eyes when models go overtly sexy (come on, ladies, do something unexpected)–but we think Alessandra Ambrosio is a vision in this minimal (but super sexy) column.

Never thought we’d like a white midriff-baring cutout gown, but… she nailed it.

 Constance Jablonski attends the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards on June 3, 2013 in New York, United States.  (Photo by Andrew H. Walker/Getty Images)It’s strange, but in sifting through all these photos, we felt so many people just looked plain overdressed. Rather, everyone wore big showstopping gowns–and this is a fashion industry event! You can wear whatever you want! So why all the middle-of-the-road red carpet glamour?

Not necessarily Constance Jablonski, though, who toned down her gown with gorgeously sparing makeup and effortless hair.

Also, her shoes rule.

Actress Hailee Steinfeld attends the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards on June 3, 2013 in New York, United States.  (Photo by Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images)Hailee Steinfeld always brings something slightly offbeat but sunny and stylish–perfecting that Summer-y orange-red lip, too.
