Who wore what (and WTF?) to the CFDA Fashion Awards.

WORST: Gigi Hadid

Her Mary Kate and Ashley-inspired look swallows her whole.

WORST: Bella Hadid

This dress is fun but I can't help but feel like we've seen this look 100 times before on Bella.

BEST: Diane Kruger

This colourful velvet gown by emerging designer Monse is a true work of art.

BEST: Priyanka Chopra

This rising star proves sometimes less is more.

BEST: Adriana Lima

The supermodel does modern masculine tailoring to perfection.

WORST: Erin Wasson

There's too much of a disconnect between the perfect embellishment on her top to the thrown together hun bun and are those parachute pants?

WORST: Mandy Moore

A rare miss for the normally impeccably dressed actress who seems to have taken more than a little inspiration from Pat Butcher.

WORST: Olivia Palermo

If this dress was black, she could be auditioning for the new Addams Family reboot.

BEST: Josephine Skriver

A sequin striped suit is no easy look to pull off and as much as I loathe the bralet trend, the same style rules don't apply to supermodels.

BEST: Kate Bosworth

Kate looks pretty as a picture in this yellow Brock Collection dress.

BEST: Suki Waterhouse

Suki does English Rose turned boho babe better than anyone.

BEST: Janelle Monae

Is there anything Janelle Monae can't pull off?

BEST: Kerry Washington

Even Olivia Pope would approve of this Prabal Gurung dress.

WORST: Hailey Baldwin

She automatically loses points for wearing fox fur shoes an Brother Vellies shoes are real fox fur.

BEST: Karlie Kloss

The supermodel turned NYU student smoulders in this all-black leather combination.

BEST: Sara Sampaio

Sara makes a plunging neckline look impossibly elegant in this bold gown.

BEST: Lily Aldridge

This Victoria's Secret Angel's nude dress is given a major lift with head-to-toe embellishment.

BEST: Coco Rocha

Her sequin football jersey style top and sheer white lace skirt shouldn't work, but so very much does.

BEST: Lupita Nyong'o

All hail the queen.

WORST: Alek Wek

The dress is very fashion, sweetie darling, but those glow-in-the-dark ankle boots don't have a place there. Or anywhere.

BEST: Brit Marling

The OA star looks ethereal in this Sies Marjan dress..

BEST: Joan Smalls
