Some designers you just know are destined to be awarded, for example, Alexander Wang taking home The Swarovski award for Emerging Talent. Followed by one of my favorite womenswear desingers - Anna Sui who was honored with the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award ... well over due.

And who brings home the gold? If your guess was Mr. Marc Jacobs, then you're definitely on the money. CFDA awarded Marc with the International Award for his work at Louis Vuitton throughout the years.

Then, to top the evening off completely the First Lady Michelle Obama received the CFDA’s Board of Directors’ Special Tribute ... now that's COCA!
