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, "inspired" would simply be an understatement. Everyone was clad in designer favorites, from 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.

Next, I'm a Fashion Archivist—These 7 Trends Are Officially Back, and Here's Why

Associate Fashion Editor
Yusra Siddiqui is an editor who resides in New Jersey but bounces between the suburbs and NYC. (She's a Jersey girl at heart.) After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
