Lady Gaga - Fashion Icon Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga feels famous because of her style.

The 25-year-old singer picked up her Fashion Icon award at the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards last night (06.06.11) in a blue wig and a Thierry Mugler dress, and revealed she was very nervous at being gifted with the accolade at New York's Lincoln Center.

She said: "I can't believe I'm allowed in here. My sister is here with me tonight. I told her I was very nervous.

"I used to save up my money to buy Mugler vintage archive. I used to save up all my money. I had to have it. That's really what fashion is all about for me. I already felt like I had made it before I had made it.

"All of you made me feel like a star before I was. Thank you for believing in me."

Louis Vuitton head Marc Jacobs won the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award, which was given to him by friend Sofia Coppola.

Accepting the prize, he said: "This achievement is born of love, passion, creativity and a hell of a lot of hard work.

"I believe we all know and feel the greatest reward is the process itself."

Alexander Wang won Accessory Designer of the Year while the International Prize went to Phoebe Philo from Celine.
