She accessorized with matching heels by Stuart Weitzman and clutch. Graham topped off the look with a bold red lip and styled her hair in loose waves.Graham is actually not the first celebrity to wear a wedding dress outside the context of an actual wedding.

But as Graham and Hadid have clearly displayed, you can still look incredible wearing a wedding dress, even when it’s not your actual wedding day.Ahead, shop 10 minimalist wedding dresses inspired by Graham that you can wear to your next fancy event — no ‘I do’ required.Read More from Yahoo Lifestyle: • Meghan Markle is getting treated by the royal family in a way that Kate Middleton never was • Can the ‘exploitive’ Miss America really change?

Bella Hadid showed up on the CFDA red carpet in a dazzling bright-pink blazer dress designed by Virgil Abloh of Off-White.
Designer Christian Siriano dressed Meg Ryan and Janelle Monae for the CFDA awards, calling it "a nice change from the regular fashion girls."
Olivia Palermo walked the red carpet at one of the year’s most prestigious fashion events, the CFDA Awards, in a Banana Republic dress you can buy online right now. On a night that is all about making a statement (it’s often referred to as the “Oscars of Fashion”), Palermo did just that by elevating the consumer brand on fashion’s highest stage.
The CFDA awards, which always take place in June, have had their share of memorable moments. Like the time in 2014 that Rihanna had a party in front, and the back, in see-through Adam Selman. Or that 2012 moment when Seth Meyers wore Marc Jacobs’s Met ball number: white boxers underneath a lacy shirtdress by Commes des Garçons. But fashion is all about moving forward, so without further ado, here’s what the stars donned to this year’s dinner.Read more from Yahoo Beauty + Style:Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

“Nude,” until the last few years, has been defined by the fashion industry as beige. The nascent British company’s mission is to cater to people of all skin tones, from the palest white to the deepest ebony — or as much of that spectrum as 10 hues can represent. Founder Jamela Acheampong said she spent hours researching skin tones to narrow down the 10 shades her brand ultimately decided on.
Every year, the Council of Fashion Designers of America — a nonprofit organization that serves as a governing body of the fashion world — gives recognition to up-and-coming talent, established designers, and icons. For 2016, the best and brightest, including Anna Wintour, Lauren Conrad, and Claire Danes, to name a few, hit the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. With Joel McHale as host (a man whose sartorial knowledge is laughable) and performances by Jennifer Hudson, Ciara, and Michael C. Hall in his Lazarus character to commemorate David Bowie (the late singer was honored with the Board of Directors’ Tribute, which was accepted on his behalf by Tilda Swinton), the night was as entertaining as it was stylish. Olivia Wilde wore a cutout gown that showed off her pregnant belly, Karlie Kloss stunned in a Swarovski-embellished dress from Rosie Assoulin, Alicia Silverstone looked sexy in Christian Siriano, and more.

Mason Grammer walks the runway at the Malan Breton fashion show during Fall 2016 New York Fashion Week at Gotham Hall on February 11, 2016 in New York City. Camille and Kelsey Grammar’s daughter, Mason, made her New York Fashion Week debut on Thursday. As any proud parent would, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared multiple shots on social media from her front row perch of her child wearing a silk patterned romper with knee-high boots and a waist-cinching belt.
On Monday night the fashion glitterati streamed into Spring Studios for a dinner to announce the winners of the annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Prize. After four months of multiple design challenges, a full-on runway show presided over by Kim and Kanye at the Chateau Marmont, and countless meetings with the likes of Anna Wintour and Diane von Furstenberg, the ten contestants were primed and ready for the results. “Tonight is the night,” menswear designer Thaddeus O’Neil said (somewhat nervously) walking into the venue. He was greeted by Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa who offered an encouraging pat on the back. Once inside there was a frenetic energy while designers, celebs, editors, and the like mingled with excitement. Riccardo Tisci chatted with von Furstenberg while waiting for Amanda Seyfried to finish taking photos in one of his cream colored lace slip dresses; Demi Moore clung to Zac Posen’s side; and Lake Bell cut a smashing figure in a white Calvin Klein sheath. Meanwhile, shoe designer George Esquivel, a 2009 finalist remarked how impactful this program is. “Whether you win or lose, this contest will definitely change your life,” he said. “It changed mine!” After a dinner of chicken pot pie (a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund tradition) and a surprise performance by Andra Day, it was revealed that for the first time the competition had a three-way tie. Womenswear designer Jonathan Simkhai, Gypsy Sport’s Rio Uribe, and Brother Vellies’ sustainable shoe designer, Aurora James, all took home the grand prize of $300,000 plus a year of mentorship. Earlier this year, Uribe predicted his win to Yahoo Style. “No one is left out of the Gypsy Sport brand. It includes everyone,” he said. “It’s the people’s brand and I think that people can recognize that. I have nothing against whoever else wins, but if Gypsy Sport wins, I think it’s just going to be the beginning of more of a connection with the consumer than a lot of other brands out there.” Kudos!

It includes everyone. It’s the people’s brand and I think that people can recognize that.”
