Forget the frocks, it was all about the shoes, bags and jewels at last night’s dazzling ACE Awards ceremony! Hosted by the Accessories Council at Cipriani 42nd Street, the 16th annual celebratory dinner and awards ceremony called together some of fashion’s most influential designers, brands and influencers for a glamorous evening honoring those who have enhanced the awareness and use of accessories.
Guests, including new L’Oreal spokesperson Julianne Moore, Olivia Wilde, Pamela Love and more, were greeted by a scrumptious Swarovski-adorned cake, baked by Whipped Bakeshop, as they mingled with ACE honorees Fossil Inc. (Brand of the Year), Vince Camuto (Visionary), C. Wonder (Specialty Retailer) and more. Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa, Italo Zucchelli and Ulrich Grimm were also present to accept their award for “Designer of the Year.” When asked about the models that are inspiring the iconic brand today, Francisco Costa said that Suvi Koponen has been on his radar as of late.
“Girls that we’ve worked with, and continue to work with, are all very cool and inspiring,” said Costa. “For instance, Suvi is a girl that I find very current. Especially now, there is something about her that is really amazing. Maybe it’s because she’s married, or in love, but she is very inspiring to me today. Also, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, all of them were just amazing! They were really fantastic, but it also had to do with Calvin’s eye. He had the eye for that kind of futurism of beauty and of what’s to come. It’s nice to see the connection. He brought so much life into all of those girls, and helped to make them very successful.”
Modelinia was also very excited to see Stefani Greenfield and Desiree Gruber of model-favorite brand Theodora & Callum on stage to accept the award for “Brand Launch of the Year” presented by Tim Gunn. Like supermodels Heidi Klum, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford and Molly Sims, we’re obsessed with our Theodora & Callum scarves, and we’re so excited to see the brand recognized at this year’s ceremony. We can’t wait to see what all of this year’s amazing honorees have in store for us—not to mention our closets— in the coming the coming year. Congratulations to all the winners!
