The Nominees For This Year's CFDA Awards

Congratulations to the CFDA Award nominees and honorees, named tonight at Diane von Furstenberg’s studio in New York. We’re happy to see so many young designers on the list, especially Prabal Gurung, Eddie Borgo, Proenza Schouler, and Alexander Wang, who were part of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund—not to mention great fashion stalwarts such as The Daily Telegraph’s Hilary Alexander and photographer Arthur Elgort, who will receive the recognition they so duly deserve. As for Lady Gaga, this year’s Fashion Icon, we wait with bated breath for whatever fantastic contraption she’ll choose to wear on the red carpet. How do you top a pod?
