Fashion guests impressed us with their talent and outfits, with host Maya Jama changing into four garments throughout the show. We love a fashionista who knows how to dress for the wow factor. 



The best-dressed attendees include Taylor Russell, Jourdan Dunn, Sara Sampaio, Munroe Bergdorf, and Lila Moss, who paid tribute to her mother's famous 90s sheer dress with her garment choice.



The lavish after-party in the Peninsula Hotel was the place to be for those on the guest list post-ceremony. It was the perfect way to end the night with many creatively influential people in one venue. We can only imagine the fun and scandal that may have been going on during the celebrations.
