CFDA Award Winners Announced

6.5.2012

By Out.com Editors

The victors from last night's awards ceremony honoring the best in fashion design.

Last night the fashion cognoscenti descended upon Lincoln Center. This time, it wasn't to show their seasonal collections in a media hoolah, but instead to hear who would take home a coveted CFDA Award, which is pretty much like an Oscar for fashion design. There were some unexpected twists and turns on the road to this year's ceremony (like Simon Spurr parting ways with his label a mere week after he was announced as a nominee) and two memorable honorees were missing—Comme des Garçon designer Rei Kawakubo, who was given the International Award, and Johnny Depp, who was given the Fashion Icon Award. But, hey, John Waters was there! Random but kinda awesome. We hope he chatted up Anna. To be a fly on the wall for that conversation. Below are a list of the nominees, with the winners in bold.
