Diane von Furstenberg, the president of the CFDA, announced the CFDA Awards nominees tonight in NYC. Alexander Wang made a strong showing (the veritable Meryl Streep of the Fashion world…), but I have to admit I’m gunning for a Proenza win for Womenswear Designer of the Year.
As for the Gaga nomination, I have little to say. Mostly, I loathe her, and her perpetual pandering and ploys. I wish, frankly, they’d nominate someone like Ms. Guinness who, while extraordinarily privileged, actually appears to live, eat, and breathe fashion. Gaga, by contrast, merely puts on the costume because she knows, as we all do, she has a captive audience. END RANT. [… for now.]
Of greater importance than my blathering: WHAT ARE YOUR VOTES, eh?
