Pierre Cardin, Nicolas Ghesquiere Receive Top Honors at FGI's 27th Annual Night of Stars

Fashion Group International’s annual “Night of Stars” keeps getting bigger and better. Last night, Thursday, Oct. 28, FGI honored “The Globalists,” those fashion industry talents whose influence and reach spans across borders, at their gala in New York at Cipriani Wall Street

Hosted once again by the always hilarious Simon Doonan, who doled out awards of his own to each honoree, a “personal mantra” that was a send-up of the MTV reality show “Jersey Shore” and the cast’s absurd nicknames. Nicolas Ghesquiere, given the “Superstar” award for his work for Balenciaga, was termed the “Prince of Paramus” by Doonan, while Proenza Schouler’s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, who took home the fashion category honors, were nicknamed “The Condition,” a spoof of “The Situation.”

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and her daughter Bee Shaffer presented McCollough and Hernandez with their award, with Wintour remarking to them, “You make a bag everyone knows yet everyone wants.”

Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Connelly, who wore Balenciaga when she accepted the award in 2002 for best supporting actress for “A Beautiful Mind,” presented Ghesquiere with his award.

Actor Richard Gere, who joked that he hoped Diego Della Valle of Tod’s, the “Brand Visionary” honoree, would give him a new pair of Tod’s iconic driving shoes for presenting him with the award, after wearing his current pair for the past ten years.

One of fashion’s longest reigning talents, Pierre Cardin, who shot into the spotlight in the 1960s for his ultra-mod A-line shift dresses, was presented with the Board of Directors “Legend” award by a model who also became famous in the ‘60s, Marisa Berenson.

Other honorees included Albert Kriemler of Akris, also in the fashion category, presented by W magazine editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi, legendary hair stylist Frederic Fekkai, who received his honors from designer Calvin Klein and Janie Bryant, the costume designer for “Mad Men,” who received the “Entertainment” award from Banana Republic's Simon Kneen for her stylish re-imagining of the 1960s, Rafel and Diana Vinoly in architecture, Evelyn Lauder for the “Humanitarian” award and Glen Senk for Urban Outfitters in the “Corporate Leadership” category.
