There are a million reasons why we would love to go to New York (Sex and the City, Bergdorf Goodman, Barneys, Century 21, Central Park and Fashion Week, just to name a few) but one high up that list as well is the CFDA awards show. Unprecedented glamour and show stopping fashion, this event is way up there.
This year’s CFDA awards will be broadcasted on Style.com, as a first, on Tuesday, June 5th at 12PM EST (yes, that's today). Be sure to tune in –if you can- to spot the beauties (celebs and garments) in Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. If you can’t, here are some of the best picks of the night and some CFDA party pictures, to ease your mind. It’s just like you were there, between Mary-Kate, Tabitha Simmons and Scott Schuman, in your Proenza Schouler dress right?
