Moss And Wang Grab The Top Gongs At Cfdas

Style icons VERA WANG and KATE MOSS were hailed for their fashion prowess at the glittering COUNCIL OF FASHION DESIGNERS OF AMERICA AWARDS in New York on Monday night (07JUN05).

Designer Wang, whose timeless wedding dresses are the first choice of celebrity brides, beat fellow fashion moguls MARC JACOBS and RALPH RUCCI to the Womenswear Designer of the Year gong.

While accepting the prestigious accolade, Wang, 49, said, "I'm really incredibly honoured. Even at my age dreams in life can really come true."

Trend-setting model Moss, loved for her effortless sense of style, picked up the Award for Fashion Influence.

PETER ARNOLD, the CFDA's director, says of the British catwalk queen, "She dresses in a way that means something.

"What Kate wears, others wear. And it's really Kate choosing it, not a stylist."

Meanwhile, JOHN VARATOS was awarded the Menswear Designer of the Year honour, while MARC JACOBS was named Accessory Designer of the Year for the third time running.
