Last night on Twitter and around town, the talk was all about the CFDA Awards being handed out at Lincoln Center. The big awards are of course the focus of the show?Marc Jacobs winning Womenswear Designer of the Year, Rag & Bone doing the same for Menswear, Alexis Bittar bringing in the Accessories award, etc?but it's the extras that really supply the meat of the show.
For example, Sarah Jessica Parker introduced a tribute to Alexander McQueen, and his final collection briefly appeared on stage. The evening's single standing ovation however arrived with Michael Kors, who claimed the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award from Anna Wintour.
A salute to the designer and this recognition can be found in Bloomingdale's Lexington Avenue windows, where a picture of a young Kors stands flanked by shimmering evening dresses from his F/W 2010 collection, not yet for sale.
