    This year's Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) nominees were announced Monday night high atop the rooftop garden at Rockefeller Center. Mingling among the mortal design assistants and fashion editors were the immortal stylings of Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Nicole Miller, Vera Wang and Diane von Furstenberg, CFDA president.

    Under clear skies on one of the warmest nights New York City has experienced this season, the crowd was abuzz with whispers of who will be nominated for the awards. This season marks the 25th annual awards ceremony that recognizes excellence in womens and menswear, accessories, fashion icons, and even fashion writers. Past winners have included Derek Lam, Tom Ford, Carolina Herrera and Sean Combs.

    In addition to the announcements, Furstenberg also revealed that the CFDA will receive a $5 million endowment from the Geoffrey Beene estate from the late designer who passed away in 2004. The Lifetime Achievement Award, which was given to Robert Lee Morris, will be renamed in Beene's honor.

    Ralph Lauren, who arrived with son David, was named as the honoree for the group's first ever American Fashion Legend award. Marc Jacobs was nominated in two categories: Womenswear Designer and Accessories Designer of the Year. The announcement came the same day the Louis Vuitton designer reportedly checked himself into rehab for the second time.

    Proenza Schouler, Oscar de la Renta Tie for Womenswear Designer of the Year

    Renata Espinosa
    Tue Jun 5, 6:46 PM ET

    Sorry, Marc - it was tie, and not with you. Much to the surprise of everyone Monday night, there were two winners of the CFDA's womenswear designer of the year award: Fashion veteran Oscar de la Renta and fashion darlings Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, beating out Marc Jacobs, the third nominee in the category.

    Ralph Lauren, recipient of the American Fashion Legend award, nabbed menswear designer of the year.

    "I believe that we have a consciousness as Americans to honor who we are," said Oprah Winfrey, who presented Lauren with his Legend award. "He represents an icon in the definition of the word, having symbolized what is possible, what is meaningful - sometimes fashion can be kind of frivolous."

    Derek Lam, who also designs for Tod's in addition to his own label, won accessory designer of the year.

    The CFDA Awards, American fashion's biggest event of the year, honors both design heavyweights and its rising stars. Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the CFDA festivities kicked off on Sunday night at an intimate dinner hosted by Nadja Swarovski and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen at Top of the Rock.

    The Olsen twins, designers themselves, presented the Swarovski awards for up-and-coming young talent in womenswear, menswear and accessory design. Philip Lim took home the award for womenswear, while David Neville and Marcus Wainwright of Rag & Bone snagged the menswear award. A tearful, pregnant Jessie Randall of Loeffler Randall accepted the accessories award.

    Though tropical storm Barry threatened to put a damper on the awards gala held in New York, by the time Diane von Furstenberg - CFDA president and the first guest to hit the carpet stretched out along the grand steps of the New York Public Library - the rain had stopped and the air was balmy, much to the relief of the stylish guests with expensive shoes, dresses and accessories to look after, like former supermodel Iman.

    With arm accessory and husband David Bowie at her side, Iman wore a red Donna Karan gown paired with an elaborate breastplate-like necklace by Robert Lee Morris, a longtime friend of Iman and collaborator with Karan. Morris received the Lifetime Achievement award from the CFDA.

    Though Steven Cox and Daniel Silver of Duckie Brown didn't win the menswear designer of the year award this time around, they took the prize for best red carpet entrance, pulling up in a chauffeured Dodge Dart with their adorable dog riding shotgun.

    Others honored by the CFDA Monday included photographer Patrick Demarchelier, Washington Post fashion journalist Robin Givhan and U2's Bono and his wife Ali Hewson, who founded eco-conscious fashion company Edun with Rogan Gregory.

    2007 CFDA AWARDS PRESENTED IN NEW YORK 06/5/2007

    New York, NY, June 5, 2007 - Last night, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) paid tribute to the winners and honorees of the 2007 CFDA Fashion Awards in the Celeste Bartos Forum of The New York Public Library. In a tie, top honors went to Oscar de la Renta and Lazaro Hernandez & Jack McCollough for Proenza Schouler for Womenswear Designer of the Year. Ralph Lauren won Menswear Designer of the Year and Derek Lam took home Accessory Designer of the Year. Phillip Lim won the Swarovski Award for Womenswear, David Neville and Marcus Wainwright for Rag & Bone won the Swarovski Award for Menswear, and the Swarovski Award for Accessory Design went to Jessie Randall for Loeffler Randall.

    The evening also marked the 25th Anniversary for the CFDA Fashion Awards, and the presentation of honors in two newly designated categories: the first-ever America Fashion Award, which went to Ralph Lauren, and the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award, which went to Robert Lee Morris, the first jewelry designer to ever receive such a distinction by the organization.

    Designer Pierre Cardin was recognized with this year's International Award, Washington Post columnist Robin Givhan was honored with the Eugenia Sheppard Award; fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier received the Eleanor Lambert Award; and the Board of Directors' Special Tribute went to singer and humanitarian Bono and Ali Hewson, his wife and partner in a host of philanthropic fashion initiatives.

    The presentation was hosted by actress Ellen Barkin, who will appear in this summer's feature film Ocean's 13. Also lending their talents to this year's presentation were Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, Uma Thurman, Oprah Winfrey, and the cast of the Tony-nominated musical "Spring Awakening." Some of the most influential names in American fashion design, like CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg, Betsey Johnson, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Zac Posen, Arnold Scaasi and Vera Wang were joined by celebrity guests Kate Bosworth, Sean Combs, Hugh Dancy, Claire Danes, Heidi Klum, Vanessa Williams, and Eva Mendes.

    Of the ceremony, CFDA Executive Director Steven Kolb said, "It is especially fitting that on this, the 25th Anniversary of the CFDA Fashion Awards, the strength and diversity of the industry is so well-represented. From the emerging talent embodied by the Swarovski winners to the span of generations on both the men's and women's categories, to the presence of iconic figures who have influenced fashion for decades like Pierre Cardin and Ralph Lauren. At this important milestone, we are proud to say that the CFDA Fashion Awards remains a powerful symbol of the fine institution that American Fashion is and will continue to be.

    "Swarovski is especially honored and privileged to have been a part of such a magical evening celebrating the CFDA's 25th anniversary," said Nadja Swarovski, Vice President of International Communications. "We send our most heart-felt congratulations to all the honorees and winners. In continuing Swarovski's commitment to fostering fashion's brightest emerging stars, we are especially excited by the prospect of working with the latest Swarovski Award winners. This talented group will undoubtedly become tomorrow's legends and icons as the CFDA enters its next 25 years."

    For the second year in a row, the celebration incorporated a Viewing Party. "Upstairs at the Library Hosted by T-Mobile Sidekick" was a lounge-line space from which a larger group of fashion designers, editors and other industry supporters watched a live simulcast of the awards.

    The CFDA is also proud to announce that for the second year in a row, highlights of the event will be podcast online.

    The CFDA Fashion Awards are generously underwritten by Swarovski, which commissioned Studio Job to create the torchere shades, curtain tie-backs featured in Astor Hall and the table lamps in Celeste Bartos, all of which were created with Swarovski crystal. KCD produced the event, and the journal and graphics were designed by Lloyd + (Co).

    Nominees, honorees, and winners were determined by a Selection Committee comprised of CFDA members, leading fashion journalists, stylist and top retail executives. Ernst & Young LLP was the official accounting firm of the Awards.

    Additionall, the CFDA would like to acknowledge the companies that added to the success of this year's event: W Hotels Worldwide - official hotel; COntinental Airlines - official airline; website designer: Hudson Union; Champagne Taittenger; FIJI; Bernard's Salon and Spa, L'Oreal Professionnel and MAC Pro Team and MAC Cosmetics, and Nick Graham / wonderbrand and the CarbonNeautral Company for helping the CFDA offset the carbon created by the event and the travel of the attendees (more information available at www.carbonneautral.com).
