Sarah Jessica Parker Honours Mcqueen

Sarah Jessica Parker posthumously awarded the late Alexander McQueen at the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) last night (07.06.10).

The 'Sex and the City 2' actress gave a speech as she honoured the British fashion designer, who committed suicide in February, with the Board of Directors Special Tribute Award.

She said: "I don't think one brief segment of the evening could really illustrate what he meant to the industry or to the people that worked with him or to his family - so it's a very hard thing to try to be brief and substantive in a matter of two minutes.

"But I think his work speaks for him more than I could."

A McQueen runway show then followed which included a display of the designer's fashion pieces, leaving some members of the audience in tears.

Other big winners of the night included Marc Jacobs for Womenswear Designer of the Year, International Designer of the Year Christopher Bailey and Michael Kors who won the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement of the Year.

Michael said: "It's a tough business but I still feel a kid even though I've been doing it forever. I'm just excited to be here."

David Bowie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen also attended the ceremony, which was held for the second year at New York's Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall.

The full list of Council of Fashion Designers of America are:

International Designer of the Year - Burberry chief creative officer Christopher Bailey
