CFDA Awards 2011

There may be no other event which draws a more well-dressed crowd than the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards. The looks were sophisticated for the most part. Of course, the industry’s biggest fashion designers were all there at the 2011 CFDA including Marc Jacobs, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Kanye West and Diane von Furstenberg just to name a few.
If you guys missed the show last night, let’s catch up with the highlights of the night. Michael Bastian received the Menswear Designer of the Year award from Gerard Butler, and Hal Rubenstein received the Eleanor Lambert award from Jessica Alba (who had on a lovely DvF dress).
Kanye West also made an appearance on the stage, announcing his love for Phoebe Philo. “I don’t get up on stage unless I really believe in something,” he stated. Of course, let’s not forget our favorite fashionista, Lady Gaga who also made her appearance in her outfit last night which was anything but dull. She stepped out as the CFDA Fashion Icon of the Year in a studded thong and 24-inch backless heels- yikes! Props to her for making it to the stage.
