CFDA Awards 2011 Page 1
You’d think it’d be an easy task to make a costume change at the an awards show for fashion designers. But Lady Gaga, who regularly shows up on the red carpet in one outfit and accept her trophies in another, accepted her CFDA Fashion Icon Award in a custom dress that unraveled into a studded leather-and-mesh body suit.
Tonight’s Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards will be the glitziest event in fashion for a long time coming, but the glamour of the red carpet doesn’t mask a pretty ugly issue: only two of this year’s 19 nominated brands are run by women.
The nominees for the Council of Fashion Designers of America‘s 2011 awards ceremony are set, and the list is more or less a roster of the coolest kids working in the industry. And when we say kids, we mean kids. Because for the most part, this year’s nominees are pretty young. Also: Lady Gaga was nominated!
