The stars were out in full glamazon attire last night for the 2013 CFDA Awards.
Hosted by Bravo’s Andy Cohen, the annual to-do celebrates the most promising new kids on the block while paying tribute to the big names of fashion. And talk about big names: fashion icon Oscar de la Renta received the Founders Award from his muse, Hillary Clinton, while Ralph Lauren awarded the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement to Vera Wang (for a full list of winners, click here).
Other fashionable attendees included Kerry Washington, Jessica Chastain, Hailee Steinfeld, Lindsay Vonn, Dan Stevens (otherwise known as the late Matthew Crawley) and event organizers Steve Kolb and Diane Von Furstenberg.
But as always, Hillary Clinton upstaged everyone with a cleverly placed quip. Presenting the first award of the night — as one must when dashing off to Henry Kissinger’s 90th birthday party — she recalled the first time she met Oscar de la Renta in 1993. “I was then, as I am now, such a fashion icon,” she laughed.
See the beautiful people strut their stuff:
