All The Winners From The 2016 CFDA Awards Last Night


Dominic has said the word amazing several times this morning. Before 10am. The reason for such rare early morning enthusiasm? Beyoncé. She won the Fashion Icon Award at the CFDAs last night, if you weren’t aware already. Her Givenchy look was like, amazing. The boomerang she made on the red carpet, amazing. Her speech, amazing. Yep. Amazing. But who else was bestowed with the honour of joining Queen B on the winner’s podium? Well, there was Marc Jacobs, who took home womenswear designer of the year, Thom Browne, who took home the male equivalent and Alessandro Michele, who won the international award for his fine work at Gucci. Alongside several more talented American designer sorts. And then arrived Tilda Swinton (“Tilda, slay me!” – Dominic), who accepted the Special Tribute Award on behalf of David Bowie. Natalie is currently working on her red carpet round up to which she has cryptically said, “it will not be the best red carpet looks… but my favourites,” whilst walking out the door cackling. Stay tuned.
