Because the CFDA Fashion Awards is a fashion-centered event, we expected some killer looks on the red carpet. This is the event of the year that allows celebs to take some risks and impress us with the ingenuity of the fashion industry. But, while some brought their A-game to the table at this year’s CFDA, some played it safe.
One of those celebs to play it safe was America Ferrera, who chose a simple black Kate Spade dress for her red carpet appearance.

The 32-year-old chose this embellished Kate Spade floor-length creation for the event. This dress is definitely a classic piece that you can always count on in your wardrobe — don’t get us wrong — but it didn’t really make a huge red carpet statement, especially for an event like this.
We think America looked sophisticated in it though, especially with the accessories she chose to give the long black dress a more glamorous panache.
We can’t find the dress anywhere online but here are a few alternatives.
