2013 CFDA Fashion Awards Presenters Announced: Kerry Washington, Ralph Lauren, Jessica Chastain And More
The names of the presenters for the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards, which will take place on June 3, are starting to be made public. This year's lineup for the prestigious event, hosted by TV personality Andy Cohen, is particularly exciting and has both the fashion and political communities talking.
According to WWD, actress Kerry Washington is slated to present this year's Womenswear Designer of the Year award at Alice Tully Hall, and Vera Wang will be given the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award by her former boss Ralph Lauren. Actress Jessica Chastain will present the International Award to Riccardo Tisci, and Canadian model Linda Evangelista will give the Media Award in Honor of Eugenia Sheppard to Tim Blanks.
It is still unknown who will present the Founder's Award in Honor of Eleanor Lambert to Oscar de la Renta, but many people seem to think former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - a friend and fan of the designer - will do the honors.
