The CFDA Fashion Awards, an annual event hosted by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and presented by Amazon Fashion, is a night dedicated to celebrating the brightest talents within the American fashion industry.
Originally slated to be hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker, this year’s star-studded awards ceremony experienced a change in plans due to unforeseen circumstances, with Anne Hathaway stepping in as the new host. The evening saw a lineup of presenters, including notable names like Demi Moore and Ayo Edebiri.
Kim Kardashian’s arrival at the event injected a dose of undeniable glamour as her outfit was stylishly attributed to the ’90s supermodel era, making a striking fashion statement.

The 43-year-old wealthy reality star gracefully donned a sleek black Gothic gown by Chrome Hearts. This form-fitting leather attire featured a halter neckline, with the luxury brand’s signature cross motif elegantly adorning the fabric.
Kim’s choice of dress beautifully accentuated her famed hourglass figure, while the gown’s plunging back was adorned with a sexy buckle and strap.
Leaving the crystal stone closure partially undone down the center of the back, she offered an irresistible glimpse of her toned legs.

Her makeup palette was nothing short of dramatic, with delicate smokey eyeshadow and her signature nude lipstick, a perfect complement to her ensemble.
Staying true to the monochromatic theme of her sultry outfit, the ever-supportive mom of four showcased her long nails painted in a deep, glossy black.
To complete her ultimate bombshell look, Kim opted for a high bun with face-framing tendrils that harked back to the iconic Pamela Anderson‘s signature style, adding nostalgia to her appearance.

The American Horror Story actress didn’t stop at the dress and hairstyle. She elevated her petite frame with sky-high footwear – her choice: a pair of black and clear Pleaser Adore 701 platform stiletto sandals that you can buy on Amazon.
These clear peep-toe sandals epitomized elegance and seduction, boasting a towering 7-inch stiletto heel and a 2 3/4-inch platform, taking her style to new heights.

Kim Kardashian wasn’t just at the CFDA Fashion Awards to dazzle with her impeccable fashion sense; she had the honor of presenting the Fashion Icon Award to Serena Williams, making her the first athlete to receive this prestigious recognition. The award was previously bestowed upon luminaries such as Naomi Campbell, Zendaya, and Rihanna.
In addition, it’s noteworthy that Kim is no stranger to the CFDA Fashion Awards. In 2018, she took home the organization’s Influencer Award. In 2022, she was honored with the inaugural Fashion Innovation Award for her clothing brand, Skims.
