Last night some of the world’s most fashionable (and forward-thinking) people gathered at this year’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards. The awards are awesome because they recognize and reward new talent — past winners have included Alexander Wang, the Proenza Schouler boys and Sophie Theallet. This year Billy Reid took home the night’s top prize (and $300,000).
The fund was created seven years ago to nurture emerging talent through a mentorship program and cash prizes. Runners-up Eddie Borgo and Prabal Gurung each took home $100,000. The night’s keynote speaker was none other than Karl Lagerfeld, and what we would have given to hear him speak! CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg and Vogue editor Anna Wintour were on hand, as were a fair share of fashion’s elite (plus the cast of Gossip Girl, naturally).
Take a peek below at who wore what and who brought who to the awards!
