CFDA Awards Page 1
Last night’s CFDA Fashion Awards, were filled with plenty of memorable moments beyond the red carpet. Hillary Clinton joked about collaborating with Bravo on a show entitled Project Pantsuit, Andy Cohen presented a clip of his Sex and the City cameo as a shoe salesman during his opening monologue, and Vera Wang delivered a tearful acceptance for her Lifetime Achievement Award.
The 2013 CFDA Awards are under way. That means Andy Cohen is tossing his best Bravo-lebrity one-liners at the fashionable crowd, while stars like Diane Von Furstenberg and various members of the Olsen family size up one-another’s outfits. You may be busy stalking Twitter for the award winners, memorable speech quotes, and snubs, but we’ve got the real action right here: the arrivals photos.
With all of the tweets, press releases, Best Dressed lists, and deluges of photographs after a red carpet event, it can be easy to forget all of the work that went in to a dress once it retreats from in front of the flashbulbs. Sure, we get more behind-the-scenes access than ever before with celebrities’ pre-show Instagrams and Twitpics, but the fittings, sewing, sketching, and frantic emailing is inevitably eclipsed by the big moment of the girl and the gown. It’s even further eclipsed when the gown doesn’t see the light of day, and when this happens, says Vera Wang, it is “devastating”.
As if we didn’t already have enough CFDA Awards-related FOMO, the lineup of presenters for the prestigious night has been announced and its pretty stacked, to say the least. However, mystery still lies in whether or not Hillary Clinton will make an appearance.
Peep some of the designs and drawings from UK fashion illustrator Hayden Wiliams, who is apparently Rihanna’s “boo.”
Who won and who lost at tonight’s CFDA Awards is just as important as who won and who lost on tonight’s CFDA Awards red carpet.
The CFDA Awards are the fashion world’s version of the Oscars, which means there are winners and losers and lots of red carpet action. Who walked away with Trovas?
The CFDA Awards are going down Monday, and Matthew Crawley is involved.
And we totally agree with them.
This summer’s CFDA Awards will be broadcast on Style.com for the first time ever. The only problem? It’ll be online a day after the event, on June 5.
Christmas has come early for some of New York’s finest designers. The nominees and special honorees for the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards were announced last night at the studio of CFDA president, Diane von Furstenberg. The annual awards gala will take place on June 4 at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, and this year should be an especially wild party since it marks the CFDA’s 50th anniversary.
This was the week of the CFDA Awards — so much fashion, people! There was also a fair amount of fashion at the German state dinner (Michelle Obama, duh). Marc Jacobs‘s ad campaigns were on our mind, as were Kanye West‘s dead model video and Karl Lagerfeld‘s glassware. And, as usual, Kate/Princess Catherine/Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge/whateverhernameis looked stunning.
You’ve seen the winners and you’ve seen Lady Gaga’s studded thong, which means the only thing left for you to see is the insane amount of Fashion that was paraded down the CFDA Awards red carpet last night.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America celebrated their own last night in a star-studded show hosted (somewhat sporadically) by Anderson Cooper and held at New York City’s Lincoln Center. And while we’ve got what Lady Gaga (and what everyone else) wore coming up, let’s start with who took home the honors.
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.
Anderson Cooper — that serious journalist guy who barely has time for fashion shows between shimmying into annoyingly small t-shirts and pulling children out of harm’s way — has been asked to face a different kind of battlefield for his most recent assignment: hosting the 2011 Council of Fashion Designers of America awards.
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!
