Shocked, shocked Cat was: Last night Oscar de la Renta (above left) tied with Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler (above right) for the top Council of Fashion Designers of America award. (According to UK Vogue, presenter Ellen Barkin was shocked, too, only announcing de la Renta before realizing there were more names in her envelope.) The two beat out Mark Jacobs for Womenswear Designer of the Year.
Derek Lam won for Accessory Designer of the Year, with poor Mark Jacobs getting whooped yet again. Meanwhile, Ralph Lauren was a two-time winner, taking home both Menswear Designer of the Year (stepping over Steven Cox and Daniel Silver for Duckie Brown and Italo Zucchelli for Calvin Klein) and the new American Fashion Legend Award.
