New York City was in a fashion frenzy for last night's Council of Fashion Designers of America Fashion Awards. Anderson Cooper hosted the event at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall. Womenswear Designer of the Year: Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler
Menswear Designer of the Year: Michael Bastian
Accessory Designer of the Year: Alexander Wang
The Swarovski Award for emerging talents went to Prabal Gurung for Womenswear, Robert Geller for Menswear and Eddie Borgo for Accessory Design.
Special honors included a Fashion Icon Award for Lady Gaga and a Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award for Marc Jacobs.
Gaga said she knew she'd truly arrived on the fashion scene when she received a text message from Anna Wintour that she would be honored by the CFDA.
Apparently, however, Gaga thought the text was from a friend named Anna, and she replied with "Yes, bitch, we did it!."
The Vogue editor's reply: "How lovely."
The devil wins... again.
