And The Winner Is: The Row Takes Top CFDA Prize

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen @ CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund Awards

With more than a few gasps from the audience, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen‘s luxe fashion line The Row took top prize at the 2012 CFDA/ Vogue Fashion Fund Awards (the CFDA’s 50th Anniversary)… over a spate of other fashion heavies with much more time in the trenches. The twin-tycoons accepted the coveted Womenswear Designer of the Year together, thanking each other with the obligatory double cheek kiss and wearing the latest designs from their labels 2013 Resort collection.

The night, as expected, was a seriously well-dressed affair with everyone who’s anyone — from Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schoeler, to noted fashion muses Jessica Chastain, Zoe Saldana, and Kate Bosworth – in attendance.
