CFDA Awards 2012

The Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards gathers every top fashion designer in America you can think of was held last night, June 4th, at New York City's Alice Tully Hall. Saturday Night Live's Seth Myers hosted the event bringing both smiles and laughs to the crowd.
The much anticipated award, Womenswear Designer of the Year, was given to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen for the luxurious, high-end brand, The Row. Considering their young age of 25, this is a monumental award for both them and the industry. 
Some other awards given out:
                                                                        Menswear Designer of the Year: William Ried
                                                                        Accessory Designer of the Year: Reed Krakoff
                                                                        Swarovski Award for Womenswear: Joseph Altuzara
                                                                        Swarovski Award for Menswear: Phillip Lim
                                                                        Swarovski Award for Accessories: Tabitha Simmons
                                                                        Fashion Icon: Johnny Depp
                                                                        Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award: Tommy Hilfiger
