DVF Receives Superstar Award at FGI’s Night of Stars


At Fashion Group International’s Night of Stars on Thursday evening, all attendees had the same person in mind: Oscar de la Renta. Though Diane von Furstenberg received the evening’s highest honor, the Superstar Award, she told Women’s Wear Daily, “I am thinking of Oscar.” Fittingly, the evening’s theme was 'The Protagonists.'”

Model Karen Elson presented DVF with her award; other designers receiving a trophy included Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton, Peter Copping, Joseph Altuzarra, Elie Tahari and Brunello Cucinelli. Guests included Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, Sean O’Pry, Marc Jacobs (last year’s Superstar honoree and presenter of Peter Copping’s award), Matt Lauer, Howard Schultz, Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl.
