On Wednesday night, CFDA Award continues the live festivities, gathering industry insiders at Pool + the Grill, inside the Seagram Building on Park Avenue in Manhattan to honor some of the biggest names in fashion.
Hosted by Emily Blunt, the 2021 ceremony was once again held in front of a famous audience and cast, following Digital rollout last year. Several of the honorees were announced ahead of Wednesday’s ceremony, such as Fashion Icon Zendaya, Aurora James Founders Award Winner and First Face of the Year Anya Taylor-Joy, among others.
