June 7, 2011 by Post Team
Lady Gaga & Fashion Icon, Lady Gaga was a little emotional moment when he accepted his award as an icon of fashion this year on Monday night the Council of Fashion Designers of America awards. The pop star and style risk taker, “who was dressed with a turquoise wig and get a corset in place of Thierry Mugler, a label now run by his friend and stylist Nicola Formichetti, expressed his heartfelt thanks to a crowd filled with Hollywood stars and fashion industry elite.
“You all made me feel like a star before I was” a nervous Gaga told the audience at Lincoln Center, who boasted bold names like Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan and Michael Kors. “As much as this award means to me personally … I just want to know how much this means to young Americans”
The singer recalled receiving the text message from Wintour who was chosen for the award. She said she mistook the Vogue editor in chief of another friend called Anne: “So my answer was:” Yes, tch, b *, we did! ”
“I got a response saying, ‘How nice,’” said Gaga.
This led to laughter – as did the assembly Anderson Cooper of his first days as a preteen model.
The CNN anchor, who is an old friend von Furstenberg CFDA president, said he decided to show their photos to prove their credibility in fashion since he was acting as host of the glittering awards ceremony. (It is also the son of the late designer jeans magnate Gloria Vanderbilt and worked as a fitting model for Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren, who made his tuxedo.)
“There was no way you’d be criticism,” he joked, “or that’s what Diana said, anyway.”
Actress Naomi Watts, wearing a metal suit style shirt Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein, presented the first award of the night of women’s wear designer Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler. But she seemed to find their way awkwardly through a long period of bullying at their heels. “That was easy,” he said on arrival at the podium. “Fun to do in a room full of supermodels.”
The two standing ovations of the evening was for the photographer Arthur Elgort and designer Marc Jacobs, who was there for his “award half life”, according to host and muse, the director Sofia Coppola.
“This achievement is the fruit of love, passion, creativity … and a hell of a lot of hard work,” said Jacobs, who is 48.
He added: “I think we all know and feel the greatest reward is the process itself.
