Each year, the CFDA Awards honoring emerging American fashion designers bring out the best and boldest in fashion, serving serious looks on the red carpet with sparkling diamonds to match. This year’s awards, hosted by Emily Blunt, honored some of our favorite red carpet mavens and talented designers. Zendaya became the youngest person to receive the Fashion Icon Award, Anya Taylor-Joy won the Face of the Year Award, Dapper Dan the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award and our own Emerging Designers Diamond Initiative participant Jameel Mohammed of Khiry was among the nominees for American Emerging Designer of the Year.
Although we didn’t see any ballgowns or over-the-top looks, the jewelry was certainly up to par. From Zendaya’s Bulgari jewels to Iman’s Kwiat Diamonds by Leighton Jewels, we couldn’t get enough of the red carpet bling.
Below, some of our favorite icy looks from fashion’s biggest night out.
The Best Diamonds Jewelry Looks at the 2021 CFDA Awards
To no one’s surprise, Zendaya owned the red carpet in Bulgari diamonds and a two-piece red ensemble from Vera Wang.
Anya Taylor Joy
As the brand ambassador for Tiffany & Co., we have a good feeling Anya Taylor Joy is wearing their diamonds along with her Oscar de la Renta blazer dress.
As the host of the CFDA Awards, Emily Blunt showed up in a bold Christopher John Rogers orange pantsuit and a diamond double-looped chain pendant with chunky diamond huggies to match.
Supermodel and CFDA Award presenter Iman brought the drama in her diamond and emerald Kwiat pieces from Fred Leighton Jewels.
It wouldn’t be a night in fashion without at least a few supermodels in attendance and we’re loving Paloma Elsesser’s chic look from the night.
Karlie Kloss always keeps things simple and chic and we’re loving her emerald cut diamond necklace from Briony Raymond that packs the perfect amount of sparkly punch.
Ciara’s barely-there diamond look is the perfect example of letting just one piece shine bright—in this case, her stunning earrings.
