Designers Step Out for Style and a Cause

Leaders in fashion and footwear turned out for the 2007 AAFA American Image Awards sponsored by the American Apparel and Footwear Association (AAFA) Monday night in New York. Hosted by "America's Next Top Model" judge Jay Manuel, the likes of Kimora Lee Simmons, Anna Kournikova and Patricia Field walked the red carpet before accepting their awards as this year’s honorees.

Simmons, who was honored with designer of the year for her Baby Phat collection, looked arresting in a red satin gown with a sheer lace back. Channeling her modeling days, Simmons vamped it up on the red carpet along with tennis player Anna Kournikova, who showed off her curves in a black Grecian-inspired dress with gold beading up the sides. True to her career on the court, the blonde bombshell had her hair pulled back in a casual ponytail to accept the spirit of the woman award, recognizing her work done on behalf of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA). Forty percent of the night's proceeds went to the BGCA.

The annual award ceremony recognizes the movers and shakers in the industry. This year's event, titled "Fabulosity," honorees also included stylist Patricia Field with the fashion maverick award and George Feldenkreis, chairman and CEO of Perry Ellis International.

Field, who is credited with her work on "Sex and the City" among numerous movies and shows, walked the red carpet with SATC cast member Willie Garson. The awards ceremony also recognized DailyCandy founder Dany Levy, sparkling in a silver minidress, who accepted the golden pen award. Designer Tommy Hilfiger and Broadway actress Jennifer Hope Wills took their turns on the red carpet as well to help honor and celebrate their fashion friends.
