We have to hand it to the fashion industry.
Working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure our favorite celebs and tastemakers are always dressed in stylish splendor means that designers, editors and VIPs of our most beloved brands rarely get a moment to shine.
But tonight, Alice Tully Hall in New York City played host to the 2013 Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards and we waited with bated breath to see who would walk away with top honors.
Bravo's Andy Cohen hosted the annual kudosfest—an appropriate pick, him being a stylish on-air personality who always turns heads when he enters a room. "Andy is a friend of the fashion industry and we are thrilled to have him host the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards," CFDA presidentDiane Von Furstenberg said in a statement.
