Marc Jacobs, Thom Browne, Mansur Gavriel win CFDA Awards
Marc, Thom and Beyoncé. Those were the big winners June 6 at the CFDA Awards at the Hammerstein Ballroom here, as Marc Jacobs received the Womenswear Designer of the Year prize; Thom Browne won Menswear Designer of the Year and Beyoncé was the recipient of the Fashion Icon Award. Usually the winner of that honorary prize is revealed along with the nominees in April, but this time around Beyoncé’s selection was a surprise, per Women's Wear Daily.
