cfda red carpet re-cap . . .

The Council of Fashion Designers of America, or “CFDA,” held their annual awards ceremony last night.  The red carpet was white hot this year —  with Tom Ford receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award and Rihanna receiving the Fashion Icon Award, everyone turned out looking totally smokin’!!!

It is worth noting that Altuzarra took home the award for Womenswear Designer of the Year. I think Joseph Altuzarra is one of those designers that has the “cerulean Blue” effect discussed in The Devil Wears Prada – his designs are literally shaping the fashion choices made from tip to toe — from other designer runways all the way to the Gap. So, kudos to Altuzarra for getting the recognition he clearly deserves!!

Below, I’ve teased out some of the best pics from the red carpet and I hooked you up with the award list and some Altuzarra runway looks, just in case you are interested . . .
