I Saw Kendall Jenner and Katie Holmes IRL—They Made Me Want to Try This Trend

I’m constantly inspired by the risks celebrities take with their style, but after seeing the best-dressed stars IRL on the CFDA Awards red carpet, to say ‘inspired’ is simply an understatement. Everyone was clad in designer favorites like LaQuan Smith to Altuzarra, but Kendall Jenner and Katie Holmes in Khaite and Jonathan Simkhai were personal favorites. Both looks included the perfect trend to ring in the upcoming holiday season: shimmer and sequins. I’ve only kept one or two sparkly pieces in my closet but seeing the trend up-close has me ready to embrace it a little more often. 

Ahead, see how the celebs wore the shimmer look on the red carpet, and shop it if you find yourself enamored like I was. Whether you need a gala-ready gown or an eclectic accessory, the pieces below will have you bejeweled in no time. 

In a dream world, my entire wardrobe would be Khaite.

It just keeps getting better with Zara.

What did I just say?


I’m predicting Hailey Bieber will wear this.

I’m intrigued.

Fresh off the runway.

Is it weird I want to pair this with a button-down and boots?

This would pair extremely well with an LBD.

if you’re still not big on sparkle, this is a nice small touch.

Reformation is on a roll right now.

I was not expecting to fall in love with a pair of sparkly shorts, but here we are.
