Fashion Week Kickoffs Continued With the 10th Annual Style Awards

Monday, September 9, 2013

This fashion week is celebrating a lot of anniversaries – Elie Tahari‘s 40th, DKNY’s 25th, and 5 years of WSJ. magazine, among others –  and on Wednesday evening, The Annual Style Awards marked its 10th year by televising the ceremony for the first time.  Hosted by Nicole Richie at Lincoln Center, the event drew a bevy of industry insiders as it honored the top talent in fashion and entertainment.  Among the honorees: Kate Upton (Model of the Year); Zac Posen (Designer of the Year); Frederic Fekkai (Hairstylist of the Year); Rachel Zoe (Stylist of the Year); and Patrick Demarchelier (Photographer of the Year).  Also representing were a number of the Victoria’s Secret “Angels” (Lily Aldridge and Lindsay Ellingson among them), who were honored with the label’s “Most Visible Brand” award. The presenters were equally illustrious: Andre Leon Talley to Zac Posen; Christie Brinkley (who brought her mini-me daughter, Sailor Lee) to Kate Upton; and Anna Wintour (via video) to Demarchelier. While Posen graciously thanked the industry and its “ingenious creators…it has been a wonderful journey together,” Upton quipped how she gets paid to travel the world in a bikini.  Those who missed out on the festivities can watch fashion’s best and brightest collect their Tiffany & Co designed prizes on September 14, 7pm EST on CNN.
