Big Hair, Bold Cheekbones, Brilliant Models

Next Monday’s 2010 CFDA Fashion Awards are quickly arriving, as editors, fashion insiders, and models look forward to honoring creative talent in not only designers but also Iman, as she’s set to receive the Fashion Icon Award this year! While everyone waits to toast the designers and iconic Iman, the CFDA released a few images from the annual journal celebrating those nominated and honored. Sølve Sundsbø snapped the designers’ glamour shots, including Donna Karan using a wind fan like a pro, a selection of models posing as Marc Jacobs, and Alexander Wang with his high school buddies.

But of the images released, we’re loving the pictures of Prabal Gurung and Jason Wu. After seeing his picture, Prabal immediatly Tweeted to his model of choice, Heidi Mount, saying, “Lady did u see this? thank you for holding my head n being so good with me..xoxo PG.” Despite his apparent fear of the camera, Prabal looks cool, calm, and meant to pose - surely based on the assistance of Heidi.

As for Jason and Karlie Kloss, we can just imagine this is a glimpse into his workspace: elegantly sparse to let the clothes speak for themselves, while Karlie stands like a perfect column in the center, the beacon of attention, and muse to his creativity.
