Lights, glamour, take action! Time magazine honored its 100 Most Influential People of 2016 on Tuesday night, hosting its annual gala for this year’s honorees in New York City.
The stars didn’t disappoint, turning out in droves for the event and going glam for the momentous occasion. And though this year’s gala saw relatively tame ensembles, with a few exceptions (looking at you, Nicki Minaj), several stars stood out from the pack in their formal wear.
Here were the evening’s best dressed stars:
The I Am Cait star stole the show in a stunning, off-the-shoulder Chiara Boni black gown with sparkly drop earrings and pointy heels. The former Olympian slicked back her hair, giving her luscious locks some body with an elegant curl. She simply oozed classic glamour.
Dang girl! The Quantico star bypassed the traditional elegance in favor of a sharp white pantsuit. Wearing her hair in a bun, Chopra accentuated her plunging neckline with a beaded necklace and wore black heels.
The supermodel donned a violet Victoria Beckham gown that had a special meaning behind it. “I’m wearing my purple in [Prince’s] honor,” she told People at the event. Kloss wore her hair in a sleek bun and rocked a fuchsia lipstick with the vibrant dress.
Pretty in pink! The Top Chef host wowed in a draped neon pink gown with metal accents. Inside the event, Lakshmi praised singer Nicki Minaj for her performance, posting an Instagram photo with the caption: “The most awesome @nickiminaj who rocked #time100gala tonight. And yes I did most certainly get to dance with her!! #littlehands will never believe me!”
The professional athlete ditched her skis in favor of a buttercup-yellow gown with beaded embellishments. Vonn wore her blonde locks half up and carried a metallic clutch.
