Based on the fun selfies and silly snaps from celebrities, models, and designers, night’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund dinner was as fun-filled as it was fabulous.


The competition designed–pun so intended–to find the freshest talent in fashion has churned out a slew of notable alumni over its 12-year history, including attendees Eva Zuckerman, Ryan Roche, Paul Andrew, and Tome’s Ramon Martin and Ryan Lobo. As one of the competition’s judges, Diane von Furstenberg spoke warmly about the fund’s alumni and introduced the program’s fairy godmother, Anna Wintour.  Wintour had excellent things to say about both the program and its finalists before inviting actress Amanda Seyfried up to introduce the event’s guest speaker, Ricard Tisci. Hamish Bowles conducted the conversation-like interview.


To everyone’s surprise and delight, the competition was deemed a three-way tie and finalists Aurora James, Rio Uribe, and Jonathan Simkhai all walked away with $300,000 each and a mentorship.


The well-dressed attendees included models Karlie Kloss, Chanel Iman, Devin Winsor, and Taylor Hill; designers Zac PosenJason Wu, Tamara Mellon, Christian Louboutin, and Georgina Chapman; and an assortment of celebrities including Lorde, Zachary Quinto, Lake Bell,  Zendaya, Demi Moore, and Tinashe.
