Last night was the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards, which is like the Oscars of the fashion industry, except it wasn't televised, we didn't speculate about the winners for months on end, and there were even more gay men in attendance. Naturally, with anything fashion-related, there were a ton of wacky outfits. Let's look!

As for the awards themselves, there was a lifetime achievement award for Marc Jacobs (he's not dead yet, people!) and an icon award for Lady Gaga who showed off her blue wig and bare ass. She also told really cute story about her award:

She then revealed that when it was announced that the CFDA would honor her, Anna Wintour, the editor of American Vogue, sent her a congratulatory text message. Lady Gaga said she thought the text came from a friend of hers also named Anna, and so replied, "Yes, bitch, we did it!"

Gaga waited for the laughter to die down and added, "I got a reply that said, ‘How lovely.'"

As for the other winners, Proenza Schouler won for women's wear, Michael Bastian won for men's wear, and Alexander Wang won for accessories. Prabal Gurung, Robert Geller, and Eddie Borgo won for best young womens' wear, men's wear, and accessories designers, respectively.
