The stars and designers came out to celebrate fashion at the Brooklyn Museum in New York City on Monday, and they didn’t hold back on the red carpet. From sequins to bold colors, celebrities including Amber Heard, Busy Philipps, and the event’s host, Issa Rae, all donned power suits at the annual event.
While honoree Kim Kardashian West didn’t opt for a suit -- instead showing off her enviable abs in a white crop-top look -- that didn’t stop other attendees from making their own style statements.
Here were the 10 best suit styles of the evening.
