Last night was officially one of the biggest nights in the industry. Okay, so I know we said the same thing about last month's Met Ball but honestly, this was a big one too. Let's call it the Golden Globes of the fashion industry.
There were not many surprises with the winners. Laura and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte went home with the big Womenswear Designer of the Year Award. According to Grazia, the duo 'spent all afternoon watching the movie Midnight Cowboy to calm themselves down' and celebrated by calling them mum straight after their win had been announced - she proudly told them that she knew they would win all along. Kanye's favourite, Scott Sternerg for Band of Outsiders, tied with Italo Zucchelli for Calvin Klein Collection for the Menswear Designer of the Year Award.
Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez from Proenza Schouler bagged the award for Accessory Designer of the Year. Our favourite golden boy, Alexander Wang, was smiling from ear to ear when he was announced as the winner for the Swarovski Award for Emerging Design Talent.
This year saw the creation of the 'People's Choice Award' which was awarded to Ralph Lauren.
One of the biggest moments of the night was Michelle Obama's acceptance speech for her special tribute award via video link from the White House. I think it's safe to say that she is officially fashion royalty.
