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.

Take Five, Jason Wu

Jason Wu, adorable American designer famous for his quirky yet lady-like prints and gorgeous frocks, just premiered his resort collection.

It was very French, with obvious influences from Chanel and vintage YSL, yet Wu was still able to make it fresh and totally plausible in the new decade.

These are my Top Five favorite looks from the collection.  I wish this could be my summer wardrobe.

This is my picnic/outdoorsy outfit.

This is for my day on the boat sailing around the bay.

This is for a day trip into the city.

This fabulous ensemble is for lunch with the girls.

Summer wedding, anyone?

Jason Wu, keep up the excellent work. Oh and if you could send me one of those hats, that would be lovely!
