Tom Ford’s return to New York Fashion Week brought out the biggest names in fashion and Hollywood for one star-studded event. The designer embraced the see-now-shop-now model at his Fall 2016 show, which was followed by a dinner for all his guests. Actors including Tom Hanks, Jon Hamm, Julianne Moore and Uma Thurman joined “supers” Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Iman, and everyone woke up this morning with an intense case of FOMO after just one scroll through Instagram.

So what else do you need to know about the event? Below, a cheat sheet of the best things to happen.

Iman Honored David Bowie
The fashion icon spoke out for the first time since her husband David Bowie’s death.

“It’s just been a tough year, but I’m holding up,” she said on the carpet.

The 61-year-old model added that she was wearing a gold necklace (with her blue velvet suit)  in memory of her husband.

“I’m wearing this until my death. Hedi Slimane made it for me,” she said. “It just says ‘David.'”

Naomi Campbell Looked Half Her Age
Seriously, we’re surprised she didn’t jump up on the runway. Campbell has just as much power in the industry now as she had in the ’90s. She selected a sequin gown with a sheer illusion neckline (that hit her belly button) for the event. And while she’s one of the world’s biggest “supermodels,” Campbell told The New York Times she rejects the term completely.

“It’s used way too much. And I laugh. I just laugh,” she said of the hotly debated term. “We never called ourselves that. It was coined by whatever losers, but I never called myself a supermodel. It’s always been a very competitive career. It’s hard work. It’s a discipline — taking care of yourself inside and out.”

Gigi Hadid Flew There in a Helicopter
G doesn’t have time for New York City traffic. The star jetted from a previous shoot over to Manhattan to walk in Ford’s show. And she killed it on the catwalk of course. (Reminder Kendall was at her Kendall + Kylie collection launch!)

Cindy Crawford Brought It from the Back
Naomi Campbell might not believe in supermodels, but Cindy’s superstar power (and super-toned back muscles in her white Tom Ford gown) are undeniable

 

Zayn Malik Sported Some New Facial Hair
The singer has graduated from sexy scruff to full on boy beard.

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson Were Relationship Goals
After 28 years of marriage, the couple still knows how to have a proper date night.

Alicia Keys Continued Her Makeup-Free Movement
The signer, dressed in a dusty pink tuxedo and fishnet top, proved her bare-faced beauty streak has become a lifestyle.

“[It’s] really freeing”  she told the Today Show recently. “The thing is… it kinda came from because we put so many limitations on ourselves, we put limitations on each other, society puts limitations on us, and in a lot of ways, I’m sick of it, I’m over it.”

She added that her no-makeup movement is also connected to her music.  “And that’s in a lot of ways, what the music is about, it’s about being our own unique selves, because we each have something that no one else has and it would be so amazing to embrace each other, how we are.”
