And Now for the Real Awards Show…

Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards were held last night at Lincoln Center, hosted by the ever fabulous, Anna Wintour.

Some of the top winners were Marc Jacobs, recieving Womenswear Designer of the Year;  Rag & Bone took home Menswear Designer of the Year; Alexis Bittar, for Accessories Designer of the Year; and Michael Kors receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award.

As for the Swarovski awards which pays homage to emerging designers, Jason Wu received the Womenswear award, Richard Chai took home the Menswear award, and the Accessories award went to Alexander Wang.  These three winners will receive generous amounts of money from Swarovski to help their growing brands.

Sarah Jessica Parker was given the somber task of presenting the Board of Directors’ Special Tribute Award in honor of Alexander McQueen.  After she spoke, the stage filled with models presenting McQueen’s final collection to the crowd, the first time it has been seen in its entirety since March in Paris.

Also awarded last night was Christopher Bailey, head designer of Burberry, who received the International Award; Iman was given the Fashion Icon award; Eugenia Sheppard Award for Journalism went to Kim Hastreiter; and the Eleanor Lambert Award was given to Tonne Goodman, Fashion Director of Vogue, and one of my idols.

Mind the Gap

Four designers made dresses for Gap for celebrities and models to wear at the MET Costume Institute Gala on May 3rd.  The designers were: Sophie Theallet, winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award in 2009; Thakoon, protege of Anna Wintour and winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2006; Alexander Wang, winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award in 2008; and Rodarte, designed by sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, winner of the 2009 Womenswear CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund ward in 2009.

These dresses will be on display in a Gap pop-up store in NYC and will later be auctioned off.  I might need to save up some money for the Rodarte, I am absolutely in love.
