2012 CFDA Awards Winners – Olsen Twins Come Out on Top!

The CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards is akin to the oscars. Held in New York City last night. Here are the this year’s winners:

Womenswear Designer of the Year: 

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen for their luxe label the Row beat Marc Jacobs, and the Proenza Schouler duo!

The Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award went to  Tommy Hilfiger 

Rei Kawakubo received the International Award
Founders Award, in honor of Eleanor Lambert: Andrew Rosen
The Media Award, in honor of Eugenia Sheppard went to The Sartorialist Scott Schuman and blogger Garance Doré (I’m not a fan of what Garance is wearing here. She could’ve pulled off so much more but this made her look rather matronly).

Lastly, Johnny Depp snagged the Fashion Icon Award, which, to me, is quite bizarre.
