The best accessory is a gorgeous model by your side, but if you can’t get one of these ladies to hit the town with you, jewelry, bags, hats and shoes are the next best thing. Last night The Accessories Council hosted the 15th Annual ACE Awards honoring designers and celebrities who enhance sales and promote accessories at the consumer level.
Models Agyness Deyn, Coco Rocha, and Petra Nemcova were joined by guests like Christian Louboutin, Cynthia Nixon, Diane Von Furstenberg, Flo Rida, John Varvatos, Kyle MacLachlan, and Nina Garcia at Cipriani 42nd Street. Award winners included Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig of Marchesa for Best Brand Launch, Influencer of the Year Nicole Richie, Designer of the Year Philip Treacy, and Breakthrough Award Winner Rebecca Minkoff.
After the awards, guests were treated to a performance by Flo Rida who was almost as impressive as the Swarovski stage backdrop made from 1,800 glittering crystal ornaments. The evening was sponsored by Lincoln, Union Square Agency, Marchon Eyewear, Judith Leiber, and The Accessory Network.
