Retweets from the CFDA Fashion Awards

Our tweets from last night’s CFDA Fashion Awards, cleaned up and spell-checked, plus a few that mysteriously vanished…


En route to the CFDA Fashion Awards. Could the weather be any better? (Cynicism to ensue later.)

Big shout-out to Siki Im for loaning the suit and statement leather accesssory. A perfect combo!

Jessica Biel, Rachel Weisz and Jason Wu showing solidarity for the cameras.

Paz de la Huerta giving lots of extra time to the photogs. Why not? She’s THE star for fall.

Diane von Furstenburg always looks like she’s fresh off the beach in St. Tropez. Legend.

Brooke Shields says Kim Hastreiter is shy. Not the Kim we know!

Super cute video vignette for Kim. Have you been to one of her dinners? Congrats, Kim!

Alexa Chung and Ed Westwick announce Swarovski menswear winner: Richard Chai.

Swarovski accessories winner is Alex Wang.

Swarovski womenswear winner is Jason Wu.

Donna Karan: “Christopher Bailey knows how to seduce a woman, and he certainly seduced me.”

Chris Bailey: “I’d like to thank Tom Ford, who gave me a magical tour.”

Dakota Fanning & a bunch of kids onstage announce accessories winner: Alexis Bittar.

The McQueen tribute is very moving with a sweet eulogy from Sarah Jessica Parker.

Playing the theme music from The Piano for the somber McQueen runway show. Always a tear-jerker for us!

Ralph Lauren wins Popular Vote for second year in a row.

Isabella Rossellini about to give Fashion Icon Award to Iman, who’s “glamorous and considerate.” Get ready for huge applause.

Seriously. No, seriously, what is Iman’s secret for looking 20 years younger? Oh, she just said it: her long neck!

Iman to hubby David Bowie: “Move over. You’re not the only icon in the house.”

Actually a little star-struck over Caroline Kennedy, who’s giving a shout-out to Vogue’s Tonne Goodman.

Announcing Lifetime Achievement Award to Michael Kors, Anna Wintour said: “He loves the customer. He’s the maestro of the trunk show.”

Anna Wintour is full of hilarious, even slightly risqué, stories about Michael Kors.

In his acceptance speech, Michael Kors: “Can you believe I used to have Peter Frampton hair?” Did we mention he got a standing O?

Jessica Biel gives Womenswear Designer of the Year: Marc Jacobs.

Marc Jacobs: “After four years, it’s our lucky night.” And he thanks all his staff by name. And bloggers! Congrats!

Okay, oops, we forgot to tweet from the after-party at The Standard. We were drunk. Slurp. Will you forgive us?
