The fashion world’s slow, but solid, ascent on Los Angeles reached another milestone last night with the Daily Front Row’s Fashion Los Angeles Awards, hosted by Nicole Richie at the Sunset Tower Hotel. Attendees included Gigi and Bella Hadid, The Weeknd, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Hudson, Lady Gaga, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jennifer Lopez, Kris Jenner, Keanu Reaves, Carine Roitfeld, Stephen Gan, and more.

Karl Lagerfeld was not in attendance (he was likely prepping his forthcoming Cruise collection showing in Cuba); however, his godson Hudson Kroenig was, alongside his dad, Chanel muse Brad. Little Hudson presented the "Fashion Icon" award to Karl, and Lady Gaga accepted on his behalf.

Mother Monster was also accepting her own award: "Editor of the Year," for her guest-editing work on V’s 99th issue. She pulled double duty for the evening by presenting her longtime stylist-turned-designer friend Brandon Maxwell with the "Best Designer Debut" award.

The entire Hadid family turned out to support Bella, who was awarded "Model of the Year." Her model sister, Gigi, presented the "Magazine of the Year award" to CR Fashion Book, helmed by Carine Roitfeld. During her speech, Gigi thanked Roitfeld, saying, “On a personal note, thank you for believing in and giving me these past few years and being an unequivocal mentor, and friend,” adding, “My career would be unrecognizable without you.” Gigi made her first magazine cover debut on the fourth issue of CR, lensed by Bruce Weber, and returns again to the publication’s cover for the latest issue.

The festivities continued at an after party hosted by Mr. Chow, co-owned by Eva Chow, who received the "Fashion Innovator" award. Additional attendees included Kim and Kanye West, Ciara and Russell Wilson, Mert Alas, Nicola Peltz, the Smith family, and more.
