In New York on Wednesday night, there was an air of glamour, luxury and olfactory excellence as The Fragrance Foundation celebrated its annual awards at Alice Tully Hall.
On the evening’s red carpet and inside Lincoln Center, models, actors and celebrities mixed with brand executives from the night’s honorees — Estee Lauder, L’Oreal, Clinique and Elizabeth Arden, to name a few — and showed off their good taste in eye-catching ensembles, including some standout footwear.
Kendall Jenner wowed in Christian Louboutin pumps and a Halston Heritage gown, while Naomi Watts went with silver stiletto sandals paired with a Versace dress she originally wore 18 years ago.
Other great shoe selections came from actresses Sophia Bush in a metallic pair of Casadei Blade heels and Kiernan Shipka in Prabal Gurung. Model Alexandra Richards opted for bling with embellished ankle-strap sandals, while Hannah Davis kept things simple in blush pointy-toe pumps.
The guys also had some great shoe moments. Victor Cruz looked dapper in his black patent slip-ons, while Zachary Quinto exuded a casual vibe by pairing his dark blue suit and striped shirt with white canvas laceups.
Each year, The Fragrance Foundation honors the best in the world of perfumery. Among this year’s winners were Prive Rose d’Arabie by Giorgio Armani for Best Women’s Luxury perfume and Tom Ford Rive d’Ambre by Tom Ford Beauty for Best Men’s Luxury scent. Clinique Happy was inducted into the Fragrance Hall of Fame, and Our Moment One Direction by Elizabeth Arden received the Consumer’s Choice Award for Best Celebrity Scent.
