Last night’s CFDA Awards was a night full of celebration, humor, and of course, fashion. Sophia Coppola presented longtime friend Marc Jacobs (pictured above) with the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award, which she coined as the “Half-Lifetime Achievement Award.” The Womenswear Designer of the Year Award, however, went to Proenza Schouler‘s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, who told the Huffington Post the honor came as a complete “surprise.” Lady Gaga, who wore stacked cut out platform heels and a turquoise bob, was presented with the CFDA Fashion Icon Award. In her acceptance speech, Gaga referenced a mini texting blunder she had with Anna Wintour, the Editor in Chief of Vogue: apparently when Wintour texted Gaga telling her she’d won the Fashion Icon award, Gaga mistook Wintour for a different Anna, and replied with “Yes, b*tch, we did it!” To which the fashion ice queen so fittingly responded, “How lovely.”
Don’t act like you’re one bit surprised.
