The Council of Fashion Designers of America 2010 awards ceremony just wrapped up at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. Among the highlights: a gorgeous tribute to the late Alexander McQueen, supermodel Iman taking home an honorary Fashion Icon Award and telling hubby David Bowie he’s not the only icon in the house anymore, a montage of Tim Gunn leading a gaggle of children on a fashion scavenger hunt, and one young designer pinching himself in disbelief when he won the Swarovski Award for Womenswear.
