2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

The CFDA Fashion Awards were held last night at the Lincoln Center in New York City and fashion mavens from across the country stormed the red carpet en masse and dressed to impress. An annual celebration within the fashion industry, the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards recognizes exemplary style and remarkable work in all facets of the industry. The recipients of these coveted awards are true icons of the fashion world. Some of the past winners include Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Michelle Obama, Ralph Lauren, Brian Atwood, and Miuccia Prada just to name a few. To put the true breadth of this event into scope, CFDA Chief Executive Officer, Steve Kolb, notes, “There is no other event that puts the spotlight on American Fashion like the CFDA awards.” 
It wouldn’t be one of the key fashion events of the season, if it wasn’t chocked full of red carpet moments that made the Oscars look like a Sears mall fashion show circa 1992. See below to find out who took home the evenings’ awards and who shined the brightest on the red carpet. Who tops your best dressed list?
