Wondering who won big at last night’s 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards, held at Alice Tully Hall.

Also, even the toughest critics seemed jazzed about the event: Cathy Horyn wrote in the New York Times today that this was the smoothest awards ceremony from the CFDA to date. With the demise of Fashion’s Night Out, word on the street is that Vogue’s big public relations focus is now aimed through events with the CFDA. One simply has to assume Anna Wintour and her extensive political dabblings had to do with Mrs. Clinton’s appearance, non?
