Bad style was checked at the door on Monday as the who's who of the fashion obsessed were on deck for The Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue Fashion Fund's fifth anniversary celebration dinner gala at New York's Skylight Studios. Designer-studded celebrities aside, Alexander Wang was the real star being recognized for his outstanding excellence in design and contribution to American fashion and awarded the fifth CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund recipient joining past winners Rogan and Proenza Schouler. With a panel of judges including Anna Wintour, CFDA's president Diane von Furstenberg, Gap's Patrick Robinson, and Barneys New York's Julie Gilhart, Wang's win surely goes above and beyond any other fashion nod.
