Hollywood has the Oscars, Fashion has the CFDA Fashion Awards. Last night's event was all about glamour as designers, fashion folk and celebrities alike put on their finest frocks to honor the best in the industry.
It was an eventful night: The hunky Anderson Cooper hosted and revealed his prior career as a child model; Lady Gaga flashed some butt and talked about how she called Anna Wintour a b****; Karolina Kurkova got starstruck and burst into song and Kanye West gushed about his love for everyone in the room.
Competition was stiff, but someone had to win it. In the end, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler scooped up the Womenswear Designer of the Year award while Alexander Wang was recognized for his talent with accessories.
