Tonight in New York City, the Council of Fashion Designers of America will host its annual awards ceremony, which celebrates the best and brightest talents in American fashion. Actor Natasha Lyonne will host the event at Cipriani South Street in Manhattan, where views of the East River will greet guests like Kris Jenner, Amy Schumer, Kim Kardashian, and more. The star-studded affair, presented in partnership with Amazon Fashion, will also commemorate the 60th anniversary of the CFDA, a non-profit organization first launched by storied publicist Eleanor Lambert. Honorees of the night include curator Andrew Bolton, stylist Law Roach, and a special posthumous award given to late designer Virgil Abloh.
The night will reflect the fast-changing landscape of American fashion today. Skims, the shapewear and loungewear brand launched by Kim Kardashian, will be the first recipient of the newly created Innovation Award, presented by Amazon Fashion. Lenny Kravitz will receive the 2022 Fashion Icon award and the United Nations will be presented with the Environmental Sustainability Award. The occasion has delivered memorable fashion moments such as Rihanna’s “nude dress” and Lady Gaga’s inimitable 24-inch platforms, so it will be exciting to see what guests choose to wear tonight. Below, check out the latest updates from the red carpet and a peek inside the gilded event.
