Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls claimed the lions share of attention in sexy black-sequin ensembles on Wednesday evening as they attended the WSJ. Magazine Innovator Awards in Manhattan.

Karlie, 25, dressed her statuesque 6ft2in figure in a sparkly blazer over a lacy bustier, cropped pants, and stiletto pumps selected by stylist Karla Welch.

The Chicago-born, St. Louis-raised beauty also sported substantial blush and nude lips with her platinum blonde French-twisted updo.

At one point, Karlie hit the stage at MOMA to be the lovely assistant for magician Dan White Kamihira’s performance.

The Puerto Rican 29-year-old sizzled in a string bikini top beneath her open-chested cocktail dress and stilettos selected by stylist Eric McNeal.

The Hermosa Ingrata video vixen finished off her evening attire with statement earrings, cat eyeliner, and a gold strand braided into her side-parted coiffed curls. 

For the first time in seven years, Smalls (born Rodríguez) will not be walking in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show taking place November 28 in Shanghai – but Kloss will.

The blonde and raven-haired millennials appeared to enjoy their glam reunion, having been friends and colleagues as far back as 2014.

In fact, it’s only been six days since Karlie and Joan partied together at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s All Hallows Eve benefit in cat and mouse costumes, respectively. 

The Bill Nye Saves the World correspondent even enlisted the RuPaul’s Drag Race guest judge to appear on her six-part series Movie Night with Karlie Kloss, which premieres December 28 on Freeform.

Noticeably missing Wednesday was Smalls’ boyfriend of eight years, Modellounge founder Bernard Smith.  

The W Hotels global fashion innovator currently fronts the Miu Miu ‘Croisiere’ 2018 campaign inspired by the Autodrome de Linas-Montlhéry. 

Kloss also hung out with one of her mentors, nineties supermodel Naomi Campbell, rocking a faux nose ring chain and a bizarre single pant-legged creation.

The part-time NYU student posted Insta-stories from her seat at the A-list bash honoring producer-actress Reese Witherspoon, designer Raf Simons, choreographer Ryan Heffington, and more.

And Karlie – who boasts 13.6M social media followers – kicked off her Wednesday with an astrological chart reading with one half of AstroTwins, Ophira Edut. 

Missing from the Swarovski brand ambassador’s side was her boyfriend of five years – investment mogul Joshua Kushner – whose big brother Jared is the senior advisor to President Donald Trump.

Kloss plans on still running the New York City Marathon happening Sunday – her first – despite Tuesday’s terrorist attack by Uzbek man Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov which left eight people dead.

‘Running a marathon is something I never dreamed I would do. As the day gets closer, I’m a bit nervous, but I like to do things that scare me,’ the Zoolander 2 actress recently told Runner’s World.

‘I definitely have a lot to learn about getting faster and controlling my pace. I think that will be a big thing for me on New York City Marathon day, but I’m hoping that the adrenaline of the crowd will keep me energized.’
