Last night, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) paid tribute to the winners and honorees of the 2008 CFDA Fashion Awards in the Celeste Bartos Forum of The New York Public Library followed by dinner at the Bryant Park Grill.

Top honors went to Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein for Womenswear Designer of the Year. Tom Ford won Menswear Designer of the Year and Tory Burch took home Accessory Designer of the Year.

The Swarovski Award for Womenswear was given to Kate & Laura Mulleavy for Rodarte while the Swarovski Award for Menswear was presented to Scott Sternberg for Band of Outsiders. The Swarovski Award for Accessory Design went to Phillip Crangi.

The Awards were generously underwritten by Swarovski. Recipients in each category will receive generous financial support from the company as well as exposure to the company's vast and innovative CRYSTALLIZED Swarovski Elements.

The Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Carolina Herrera.

Belgian designer Dries Van Noten was recognized with this year's International Award; Style.com's Candy Pratts Price was honored with the Eugenia Sheppard Award for excellence in journalism; and the Board of Directors' Special Tribute was presented to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg for his unwavering support of New York City's fashion industry.

The presentation was hosted by Fran Lebowitz. Also lending their talents to this year's presentation were Simon Doonan, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Nadja Swarovski, Anna Wintour, Victoria Beckham, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Eva Mendes, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Kim Catrall.

Some of the most influential names in American fashion design, like CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger, Betsey Johnson, Donna Karan, Zac Posen, Peter Som and Vera Wang were joined by celebrity guests Eva Longoria Parker, Tony Parker, Jason Lewis, Paula Patton, Ashley Olsen, Lauren Hutton, Sean Avery, and Lil' Kim.

As part of the CFDA's commitment to design education, the Geoffrey Beene Design Scholar Ghazaleh M. Khalifeh and the CFDA/Teen Vogue scholarship recipient Anna Lesassier were recognized on-stage with the first-ever CFDA Scholarship winner Peter Som.
