CFDA Awards Gala Recap

The Council of Fashion Designers of America held its annual award gala for womenswear on June 2, 2008 at the New York Public Library. See who won and who presented the designers with their awards.

Costa, designer for Calvin Klein, was beckoned to the podium yesterday night by actress Eva Mendes, who had presented the prize alongside Victoria Beckham and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Each seemed to be a cheerleader for her favorite designer – Mendes in a sleek white gown for Costa, Beckham in a short, pouffy minidress for Marc Jacobs and Gyllenhaal in a green-and-black checkerboard tunic for Proenza Schouler.
