Gaga will Glam it up Tonight at the 29th CFDA Fashion Awards – Celebrities, Design Stars Toast Winners

Lady Gaga_2

Trust Gaga to galvanize an audience. And even an audience of world-famous celebrities, fashion designers and icons cannot outdo the full-out, metal-to-the-pedal dynamism of “La” Gaga—we may be in for another “egg-erprise.” The woman is a force of nature.

Meat dresses or ovums or ???, Gaga should be a treat, as she is awarded the annual Fashion Icon Award—awarded to an individual whose style has had a profound influence on fashion.

Everyone who is “Anyone” in fashion, the celeb or style world—and those who want to be scene at what’s called “Fashion’s Oscar’s”–is dying to attend the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) event. Even press coverage is a coveted. Press people have been known to try to inveigle even partial access from show organizers—to no avail. KCD, which produces the show with tip-top professionalism —knows how to say “No!”

There will be a parade of stars and designer names—big and bold ones—at the event. Many designers are bringing a celebrity guest—a “Plus One” who (good thinking!) wears the designer’s clothes. Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa is taking Kerry Washington, Michael Kors is bringing Ashley Green, Patrik Ervell’s Plus One is Kirsten Dunst and Proenza Schouler’s pick is Liv Tyler, and Chloë Sevigny will be with MAC.

This is the 10th year the CFDA Fashion Awards are being underwritten by Swarovski. Our dear friend Nadja Swarovski will be there to represent the storied brand—she was literally the fourth person we ever interviewed for our first Lives of Style TV show and we LOVE HER.

Director Sofia Coppola—Marc Jacobs’ friend, muse and onetime capsule designer for him at Louis Vuitton, will present the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award to him.  Jacobs—the genius behind the transformation of Louis Vuitton into a fashion powerhouse and his own eponymous line, has won nine prior CFDA Awards and the Chevalier of the French Legion of Honor.

Kanye West—who not only wore one of Phoebe Philo’s womenswear designs to Coachella but serenaded her in his” Dark Fantasy”–“my chick in that new Phoebe Philo,” will present the International Award to the creative wonder behind Céline.

Actress Jessica Alba will present the Founders Award to Hal Rubenstein of In Style; Vogue’s Creative Director, Grace Coddington will present the Board of Directors’ Special Tribute Award to Arthur Elgort—for his impact on photography and fashion; and this year’s Media Award will be given to Hilary Alexander of The Telegraph;

From there, take your pick—the nominees are stellar:

Womenswear Designer of the Year Award: Alexander Wang,
 Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough & Lazaro Hernandez or Marc Jacobs.

Menswear Designer of the Year Award: Michael Bastian, Patrik Ervell or Simon Spurr.

For Accessory Designer of the Year Award the nominees are: Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough & Lazaro or Reed Krakoff.

Then there are the Swarovski/Emerging Designer Nominees. Our friend– übermodel—Karolina Kurkova, will present the winners with their awards tomorrow night.

Swarovski Award for Womenswear: Prabal Guring, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen or Joseph Altuzarra,

Swarovski Award for Menswear: Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim or Robert Geller.

Swarovski Award for Accessory Design: Alejandro Ingelmo, Eddie Borgo, Jason Wu or Pamela Love.

CFDA Chair, designer Diane von Furstenberg and CFDA President, Steven Kolb can always be counted on for a top-notch evening.

But remember…Monday night is also an evening for surprises…come back and see how we rated the glam, the gowns, the glitz, the gala.
