Joan Smalls doesn't just work with Riccardo Tisci — she calls him family. Last night at the CFDA Awards, Smalls — who wore a dress from Tisci's yet-to-be-unveiled Resort 2014 collection last night — said she was there to support the designer as he won the International Award for his work at Givenchy. Smalls also talked about her love for Linda Evangelista and attending the awards with Michael Kors last year.
Stars celebrated the world of fashion in NYC last night at the 2013 CFDA Awards in Lincoln Center. The event honors top fashion designers, and stylish stars like Kerry Washington and Jessica Chastain joined the party on the arms of celebrated designers. Being that this was a style event, there were plenty of supermodels at the bash, including Victoria's Secret stars Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel, and Karlie Kloss. Hillary Clinton also joined the bash to present the Founders Award to Oscar de la Renta, the man behind many of the former secretary of state's famous pantsuits. She joked about her sense of style during her speech, saying, "Now that I have some more time on my hands I am going to be pitching Andy Cohen and others a new show for Bravo. . . . We can call it Project Pantsuit." She also noted that she was embarrassed when she first met Oscar and he told her that she was wearing one of his designs.
Of course, there were a few stars in attendance who had a closer connection to the CFDA Awards other than just being fans of fashion. Tobey Maguire turned out to support his wife, jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer, who was nominated for the Swarovski Award for emerging talent for accessory design. Mary-Kate Olsen also attended the event after scooping up the highly coveted womenswear award with her sister Ashley back in 2012.

Mary-Kate Olsen and her sister Elizabeth Olsen joined Miranda Kerr, Nicole Richie, and other celebs in turning heads on the red carpet at last night's CFDA Awards in NYC.

Hear what Michael Kors, Zac Posen, and more find special about the CFDA Awards — plus, find out how Hillary Clinton stole the show!
Who knew full coverage could be so sexy? While some of last night's Met Gala attendees opted for microminis and dangerously low necklines, Jennifer Lopez and model Joan Smalls went a different route, both swapping short and sweet for sheer, long, and seriously rocker chic. Joan arrived on the arm of Tom Ford in a black lace gown from the designer's Fall 2013 collection — an ornate creation that left little to the imagination — which she accessorized with a single gold razor blade earring. Jennifer Lopez brought along not one, but two handsome escorts: her boyfriend, Casper Smart, as well as her designer date, Michael Kors. Jennifer's gown boasted a revealing back cutout and sequined giraffe print, and perfectly complemented her famous curves. It's clear that both Jennifer and Joan got the long-sleeved, sheer-gown memo — but which of them got it right?

Tom Ford had model Joan Smalls on his arm last night on their way into the Punk: Chaos to Couture Met Gala in NYC. Not one to have dressed punk himself, Tom talked about the trend and how it inspired him — or didn't — when it came to creating a look for Joan. And as for Tom's own edgy phase, he wasn't giving much away. He did, however, reveal his most ingenious use of a safety pin.

We kicked off the week with the Time 100 Gala, were treated to film premieres and parties in between, and closed it out with a Vogue-hosted dinner in London last night. Suffice it to say, celebrities have had ample opportunity to show off a range of glamorous eventwear — and they've taken it. From Kate Hudson's hot-pink heels and leather for an appearance in NYC to Joan Smalls's little white dress and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's knockout Michael Kors, it's a lesson in dressing of the very chicest kind. Get a look at the full top 10 when you keep clicking.
You can count on two things at Chanel's annual Tribeca Film Festival Artists Dinner: style setters of the A-list variety and lots of Chanel. Those were the common denominators at last night's festivities, where the dinner party was a real-life runway for Karl Lagerfeld's recent collections. Who better to showcase the designer's wares than guests (and real-life models) Joan Smalls, Alexa Chung, and Dree Hemingway. Joan's supermodel stems were on display in a gray tweed jumpsuit from the label's Pre-Spring '13 collection. Alexa exuded her signature charm in a creamy Chanel minidress from the Spring '13 line and cap-toe Mary Janes, then finished it all off with a bright red lip. Dree opted for a more colorful confection, choosing a pastel minidress from the Resort '13 line, and styled it up with a white button-down underneath and a pair of black and white brogues for a tomboy twist. This fashion-conscious set gave us Chanel three ways — now it's up to you to decide who did it best. Who gets your vote?
Along with the retailer's Coachella-ready Divided wares, H&M is launching The New Icons, a collection inspired by its campaign models, Joan Smalls, Liu Wen, Lindsey Wixson, and Daphne Groeneveld. And, as you may have guessed by the source of inspiration, the clothes prove just as cool as the ladies wearing them. With a rocker edge that reminds us of Givenchy-meets-Joan-Jett appeal, and a romantic Americana slant that's more Ralph Lauren in the '90s, the latest batch of H&M clothes offers up an easy "road map" for emulating a similar brand of cool-girl styling. We're particularly drawn to the silver-embellished black vest, cream-colored ruffle lace miniskirt, and the drawstring bucket bag both Smalls and Wixson show off in the campaign. Here's your first look at The New Icons collection — available in stores in early April — right this way.
Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013 has come and gone, and while the Parisian runways are usually full of avant-garde beauty, this year there were also plenty of low-key hair and makeup looks to inspire. Full brows, bare faces, and low ponytails took over the runways, but bright pops of color made their mark as well. Caged masks, fuzzy helmet hats, and zombie-like face paint even took their turns on the catwalks. See all the looks in today's Beauty Beat. On Kirbie: Zara dress.
The stars took a break from the Paris Fashion Week front rows to party alongside Carine Roitfeld for CR Fashion Book's second-issue launch in Paris last night. Chic attendees were clearly feeling black, but each worked the classic palette in her own fashion-forward way. Joan Smalls put her left leg on display in a one-shoulder gown with a waist-high slit, Kate Moss went sheer in a Saint Laurent creation topped with a tuxedo blazer, while Jessica Chastain covered up in a formfitting, long-sleeved gown, and Jessica Alba got girlie in a textured one-shoulder minidress. Get a good head-to-toe look at each partygoer, then tell us, which all-black ensemble is most fabulous?
