  • The Fashion Trust US Awards were hosted in Beverly Hills on Tuesday night.
  • Celebrities like Ashley Graham and Da'Vine Joy Randolph wore some of the event's best outfits.

The best of Hollywood fashion was celebrated in Beverly Hills on Tuesday night.

At the annual Fashion Trust US Awards, the nonprofit shared its mission of supporting young artists and helping them achieve global recognition. Stars like Heidi Klum and Cynthia Erivo walked the red carpet, and major designers took home trophies for their style achievements.

Accessories brand ManLuu, for example, made history when its products sold out at Nordstrom in 2021, only three months after launching. The brand's founder, MoAnA Luu, accepted the Fashion Trust US Jewelry Award on Tuesday night.

The ceremony also awarded over $500,000 in funding to winners like Luu.

But what about the actual fashion seen at the event? Some of it was stunning, while other looks missed the mark.

Here's a look at the best and worst celebrity looks.

Ashley Graham kept things simple and chic in a black, asymmetrical gown.

Her vintage Balmain design had a single shoulder strap with a hoop embellishment, a wrap skirt with the same hardware, and a thigh-high slit that showed her strappy sandals.

Graham looked stylish in the dress, and she accessorized it perfectly with hoop earrings and an updo hairstyle.

Heidi Klum's denim dress missed the mark.

Klum never looks bad — she's a supermodel for a reason. But her gown from Sonia Carrasco was more reminiscent of Y2K styles than it was fashion-forward.

The denim piece hung off one shoulder at the top and was left unbuttoned down most of its skirt, creating a wide train that circled her.

Her minimal accessories and plain black pumps were the right choice for the look, but a different, more modern dress might have made for a better outfit overall.

Designed by Zuhair Murad, Day's outfit included black undergarments beneath a mesh, high-neck gown.

It had billowing sleeves, a floral appliqué at the neckline, and a thigh-high slit in the center of its skirt.

But most stunning was the gown's sequined design, made of tiny silver sparkles that covered the mesh piece and matched her glimmering eye makeup.

Storm Reid missed an opportunity to have a major fashion moment.

The actor walked the pink carpet in a tan gown that was longer on one side than the other. It had a single-draped long sleeve and a floor-length skirt with a deep slit that extended up the opposite side.

Reid looked glamorous in the neutral gown, completing the look with platform sandals and gold jewelry.

But because the night celebrated fashion, it would have been fun to see Reid step out of her comfort zone and wear something bolder. For example, the same look in a brighter color could have made all the difference.

Kelsea Ballerini stood out on the pink carpet in a lace gown.

Zuhair Murad designed her black dress, which hugged her body and was made entirely of lace. The semi-sheer design also had long sleeves, a corset bodice, and a mermaid skirt that fanned into a train behind her.

Not only was the outfit unique from anything else on the carpet, but it was also a departure from Ballerini's usual style that leans more feminine and soft.

Her ensemble was undoubtedly one of the best of the night.

Paris Hilton's edgy minidress didn't work.

Hilton arrived at the event wearing a cutout design from Mugler. The long-sleeve piece was structured and covered in see-through panels, and its matching miniskirt featured a similar chopped design.

It was nice to see Hilton wear something bold and unique, but the design didn't match her bubbly personality and usual fashion aesthetic.

Her accessories also distracted from the look. She wore striped tights and thick sunglasses, which covered her face for most of the event.

Da'Vine Joy Randolph was the epitome of glamour.

The actor wore a black, strapless gown from Rahul Mishra that made her look like the star of the show.

It was covered from top to bottom in black sequins, giving the dress a subtle sparkle that shined in the light. It also had silver floral pieces attached to its bodice, which complemented the gown's thigh-high slit.

Randolph perfected the look with simple heels and a blonde hairstyle.

Jessica Biel's two-piece outfit might have worked better with different pants.

She wore a David Koma design comprised of wide-legged trousers and a short-sleeved blouse made from massive crystals.

Though the top was fun and unique, it would have paired better with tighter pants or a miniskirt — how Koma displayed it on his recent runway.

An updo hairstyle might have also benefited the outfit, specifically by allowing for more emphasis on the bejeweled top.

Evan Ross showed the power of unique menswear.

His outfit for the night included black platform boots, brown trousers lined with fringe, and a floor-length duster coat embellished with gold, epaulet-style pieces.

The statement pieces helped Ross stand out on the pink carpet, and his layered gold necklaces added more shine to his look.

Dylan Sprouse could have taken a bigger fashion risk.

He arrived at the awards ceremony in a simple outfit comprised of a black jacket, a blue striped shirt, and classic trousers.

The actor looked sharp, but his outfit wasn't memorable. A brightly-colored suit, a more unique jacket, or adding some accessories would have been better choices for his pink-carpet appearance.

Cynthia Erivo showed that even simple ensembles can be powerful with the right accessories.

She stepped onto the pink carpet in a black, sleeveless gown crafted from a textured fabric. Its scooped neckline highlighted the heart tattoos on her chest, and its pleated miniskirt was the perfect silhouette for the actor.

But Erivo really shined with accessories. She wore cheetah-print pumps that added a fun print to the look and a mix of gold, diamond, and crystal jewelry.
