Last night’s Style Awards may have kicked off Fashion Week (and, unfortunately, Rosh Hashanah…though that didn’t seem to stop Zac Posen from attending), but that wasn’t the only “first” it had going for it. Presented in partnership with CNN (who will be getting original content during all of Fashion Week,) the 10th Annual Style Awards were taped, but not for a live performance…the ceremony will “premiere” on Saturday, September 14. Which seems a little odd, since that’s way after Fashion Week, but oh well! The mood in Lincoln Center’s Theater was oddly subdued, despite the A-list attendees including host Nicole Richie, Amar’e Stoudemire, Victor Cruz, Kate Upton, Christie Brinkley and a special performance by Ariana Grande. Perhaps that had something to do with the night’s MC, VH1’s Sherrod Small, who tried his best to get the room laughing, but clearly didn’t know that the majority of the fashion industry are not straight men.
