2011 CFDA Fashion Awards: The Show, The Winners
Toasting the finest in fashion, the stars were out to support their favorite designers and collect accolades at Monday night's (June 6) 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City.
Held at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall, Lady Gaga was toasted as Fashion Icon of the Year, of which she said upon receiving, "I can't believe I'm allowed in here. My sister is here with me tonight. I told her I was very nervous."
The Billboard topping singer continued, "I used to save up my money to buy Mugler vintage archive. I used to save up all my money. I had to have it. That's really what fashion is all about for me. I already felt like I had made it before I had made it. All of you made me feel like a star before I was. Thank you for believing in me."
As for the big winners, the title of Menswear Designer of the Year was bestowed upon Michael Bastian while the Womenswear Designer of the Year honoree turned out to be Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez for Proenza Schouler.
