NATTY NEWS: CFDA Fashion Awards 2010

This week the Council of Fashion Designers of America held what is arguably the most important fashion event of the year - the CFDA Fashion Awards.  The CFDA awards are to the fashion community what the Oscars are to the film industry - with a host of titles nominated and awarded to designers by their peers.  Every year fashionphiles wait with baited breath to see who will claim the coveted prizes - and of course, what everyone will wear while it all goes down.  This Monday, June 8th the event took place at Lincoln Center - the soon to be site of New York Fashion Week, come fall.  There were loads of lovely ladies, all looking their best while honoring some of the industry's most talented.  Below are a few of my favorites, as well as a list of the lucky award winners!
