CFDA Awards

Last night at the Council of Fashion Designers of America gathered at the Lincoln Center in NYC for the 2010 CFDA awards ceremony. The CFDA awards, also known as the Academy Awards of fashion, honors the great and best in the world of design and fashion for the year.

As well, supermodel Iman was recognized with the CFDA’s Fashion Icon honor, which is for “an individual whose signature style has had a profound influence on fashion.” In her speech Iman thanked her parents for her very long neck and said to her husband David Bowie “"Move over. You're not the only icon in the house."
