The fashion industry was divided between two gargantuan events last Thursday—the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in Los Angeles and the 29th Annual Fashion Group International (FGI) Night of Stars in New York—and yet each event managed to gather an equally star-studded list of attendees.
Anna Wintour may have opted to join the festivities in Los Angeles, but with famous pal Sarah Jessica Parker and fashionably late Karl Lagerfeld flying to New York, the 29th Annual FGI celebration became just as important a fashion event.
The event, held at Cipriani Wall Street, honored some of the most successful designers in the industry with the help of Hollywood’s finest celebrities to present the awards. The Lord & Taylor Fashion Oracle Award was handed to L’Wren Scott, the Superstar Award to Carolina Herrera and the Brand Heritage Award to Nicola Maramotti for MaxMara. Other winners included Derek Lam, Gareth Pugh and Haider Ackermann.
Besides the awardees and presenters, some of the most important who’s who in fashion also stepped out at the stylish soiree. From model Selita Ebanks to fashion editor Nina Garcia and funny man Seth Meyers to Hamish Bowles, click through the slideshow to see some of the VIPs lending their style to the 20th Night of Stars gala.
