Designers Tread the Red for Annual Gala

The red carpet, that is. While we're used to seeing scores of stars strut their stuff down the scarlet rugs at major events year round, typically donning adventurous gowns and suits that get dissected and discussed in magazines for months afterwards, it's rare that we're treated to a glimpse of the designers themselves. One exception to be depended upon is the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America gala, which is held to commemorate the efforts of national fashion moguls who present their new collections each season, and to select a group of especially impressive talents to serve as honored winners and stars of the fashionable show.
Sometimes referred to as the "Oscars of the fashion world," the CFDA gala attracts major designers and those who are breaking into the industry alike, as well as many notable celebrities and models. Project Runway host Heidi Klum, who was dazzling in a multifaceted silver gown showing off the notion that expectant moms can still be glamorous, arrived on the arm of Michael Kors, a judge on the show and one of America's most prolific and well-loved designers.
Other notable appearances included Vera Wang, distinguished by her famous bridal and formalwear collections. Wang chatted with reporters, straying from revealing any truth to rumors that she's slated to appear on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. New designers took home several awards in many categories, highlighting the industry's continual ability to produce quality designs and creative minds despite an economic slump that has had a profoundly negative impact on the luxury industries and related fields.
In fact, the concern over the global financial crisis was largely absent form the gala's proceedings. Stars and designers alike showed non of the aesthetic reticence that has cropped up at some of the year's other red carpet events, opting for extravagant outfits that fully embrace the freedom and creativity of the fashion world. Jewellery was in ample supply, with everything from classic diamond chandelier earrings to bib necklaces and sparkling bangle bracelets adding their fair share of oomph to the atmosphere.
One especially notable feature of the event was the outspoken host; Tracey Ullman, whose comedic talent is fare more highly praised than her particular penchant for fashion, kept the audience entertained and ensured that the show ran smoothly as awards were handed out and the year in design was reviewed. Jimmy Fallon, of Saturday Night Live fame, was also part of the proceedings, serving as an award presenter for men's fashion design.
The mood Council of Fashion Designers of America's sumptuous red carpet event is a good sign for the fashion fans waiting with baited breath for a verdict on the health of the designer industry. As spirits were high and couture was higher, the night held the promise of perseverance.
