It’s fashion’s grandest night where the stars do their best to look as chic as possible.

The annual CFDA Fashion Awards kicked off on Monday with some of the biggest names in fashion showing off their sartorial savvy on the red carpet.

Leading the way was models Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Irina Shayk, Naomi Campbell and Shanina Shaik who arrived at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York in a variety of slinky and sexy gowns.

Causing quite a stir was British beauty Rosie, 29, who flaunted her back in a pastel green fishtail gown with spaghetti straps.

Irina stood out in a scarlet jumper which flattered her bronzed skin-tone and offered a peek at her cleavage with a keyhole front.

The 30-year-old Russian beauty wore her brunette locks up in a slightly messy bun.

Naomi, 46, looked sensational in a black dress with sexy cut-outs at the waist.

The gown also featured a low-cut neckline which flashed her taut abs and she wore her black locks in a long braid.

Australian model Shanina simply glowed in an amber frock with plunging neckline and pleated skirt.
