Olsen twins receive top designer award
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have taken home the biggest prize of the night at the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America awards.
They've been selected as the country's top women’s wear designers for their collection called The Row.
Jessica Chastain announced the 25-year-olds as winners Monday night at Lincoln Centre in front of an audience that drew not only from the fashion world but also Hollywood.
Mad Men's Jessica Pare gave Reed Krakoff his trophy as best designer of accessories, and White Collar's Matt Bomer gave menswear designer Billy Reid his.
The previously announced style icon award went to Johnny Depp, but he's on the set of The Lone Ranger and didn't attend. He sent an email – and filmmaker friend John Waters – in his place.
