There were many priceless memories made at the first inaugural InStyle Awards in Los Angeles Monday night, but one of our favorites from the evening was the series of adorable #instaworthy BFF moments shared between Gwyneth Paltrow (in Schiaparelli) and bestie Kate Hudson (in Giles Deacon). Throughout the night, the duo laughed it up at a table together, chatting and catching up while posting plenty of picture-perfect selfies along the way.

"I don't have a little sister by birth, but if I had one, she's the incarnation of my beautiful, carefree, spirited little sister who brings music and spontaneity, and an incredible unselfconsciousness and all of this fire into my life," said Style Icon honoree Paltrow as she accepted her award from presenter Hudson. Clearly, the feeling is mutual. "From the first moment I laid eyes on this woman it was love at first sight," gushed Hudson as she handed over the one of a kind award designed by fashion illustrator Donald Robertson.

And though the party was a star-studded affair, you didn't have to be on the West Coast to enjoy the celebration. Both Hudson and Paltrow took to Instagram to share just how much fun they were having with the world. See them pause for last-minute makeup touch ups and sip on signature cocktails below.
