2009 CFDA Awards: And the winners are...
"Drum roll please!"
Last night's CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards in New York attracted the cream of the crop from the US design pond, but only a few could take home a gong.
Rodarte's Kate and Laura Mulleavy were the toast of the evening, winning the Womenswear Designer of the Year Award. They brought along a very happy Kirsten Dunst as their date.
Proenza Schouler were named Accessory Designer of the Year. While a very confident Alexander Wang was awarded the Swarovski Award for Womenswear.
For the first time the Popular Award was given to Ralph Lauren. Special honours included Anna Sui for the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award, and Marc Jacobs for the International Award. Check out a full list of the winners after the jump...
