Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen really are fashion royalty!

On Monday night at the CFDA (that's Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards, the girls work on their fashion line the Row won them the 2012 Womenswear Designers of the Year award.

Johnny Depp was also lauded for his personal style. Just one night after taking center stage at the MTV Movie Awards with the Black Keys, Depp opted to stay out of the spotlight. The 48-year-old actor wasn't present to accept his Fashion Icon award, and Cry-Baby director John Waters accepted on his behalf.

So did the stylish celebs and hip designers hold a grudge against Depp for bailing on his big night? Jessica Chastain, Rachel Zoe, Zosia Mamet, and more of Hollywood's elite weighed in on the Pirates of the Caribbean star's unique fashion choices...

"He just sort of creates his own convention," the actress said. "He doesn't just like follow the rules. He makes the rules."

Padma Lakshmi described Depp's look quite concisely: "Eyeliner. One bath less a week. A few grays, and killer charisma. "

Rachel Zoe, wearing a dress and clutch from her own collection, said the actor's style was "eccentric, rugged...very much his own...never trying to hard, but always cool."
