The Elder Statesman designer Greg Chait took home the top prize at this year's CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards, winning a $300,000 cash prize and mentorship program with fashion industry leaders. Known for his luxurious handmade cashmere collections, Chait looks set for big things if previous fund winners such as Alexander Wang, Joseph Altuzarra and Proenza Schouler are any indication. Burberry-clad Emma Stone presented the top gong alongside fashionable attendees including designer Christopher Bailey, Miranda Kerr in coral and black Giulietta, Alexa Chung and Allison Williams in cut-out Peter Som. So stylish, hurts your eyes.

Rachel Zoe, in her own design, mingled with the star-studded crowd. A Proenza Schouler-clad Dakota Fanning made the rounds alongside Lily Collins, who wore Marchesa. Sophia Bush was also on hand to celebrate, and she showed some skin in a tangerine David Meister Signature.
Others who reported to the Standard for cocktails included Mad Men's Jessica Paré, in Jason Wu, and a Kaufmanfranco-clad Julianne Hough. One person absent from all the celebrating was Johnny Depp, recipient of this year's fashion icon award.
