Welcome to "Who Won Fashion Today," where we award the boldest, best dressed person of the day. Winning fashion doesn't necessarily mean you're wearing the most expensive, trendiest, or prettiest dress. Rather, we reward risk-takers—those that stay true to their personal style and make us go, "Now THAT is a LEWK.”

Prom season is well upon us, and with that, it's impossible not to reminisce about dresses once worn.

Did you wear something sparkly? Was it long? Did you have an UPDO?

Listen, everyone looked amazing at this event, which was held at MoMA PS1 in New York City. You really cannot NOT win fashion when you are in head-to-toe Gucci. You had Dakota Johnson walking around looking like a floral forest. You had Petra Collins looking like a sequined fairytale princess. Who could compete?

Nef. Nef wins for the color choice, the deep red lip, and the fact that she was all like "this event is kinda like prom, right?"
