The CFDA Awards are a big fixture on the fashion calendar but unfortunately don't receive the amount of press that they deserve; but it looks like that is going to change. Lady Gaga has been announced as the winner of the Fashion Icon award, which was given to Iman last year and if the press that Mugler received this month is anything to go by, the ceremony won't struggle for press attention this year.
Other confirmed award winners are Hilary Alexander who will be given the Eugenia Sheppard Media Award, Marc Jacobs is being given the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award and Phoebe Philo, the International Award.
The CFDA Awards officially are set for June 15, but GQ Creative Director Jim Moore was honoured for his impending nod at Barneys New York last night. "Whenever you hear someone say, 'That guy is so GQ,' Jim Moore ought to get a residual check," says the mag's editor-in-chief, Jim Nelson. "He's the man who made GQ so GQ."
So. Mr So-GQ, the newest recipient of the Eleanor Lambert Award, partied it up on the department store's menswear floor with Phillip Lim and Patrick Robinson at his side. As for Barneys Creative Director Simon Doonan, we just want to know what he was laughing about.
