Galliano and co make New York the centre of the fashion universe

18 NOVEMBER 2008
The heels were high, the make-up immaculate and the outfits were nothing short of fabulous as some of the biggest names in the style world - including Tommy Hilfiger, Vera Wang and John Galliano - gathered in New York this week to attend an annual fashion award presentation.

British designer Galliano made quite an entrance - partly due to having Hollywood star Charlize Theron on his arm and also with his choice of party-wear. The Gibraltar-born style maven, who later addressed guests at the event, chose an eye-catching suit adorned with hundreds of buttons.

Also turning heads in a pair of vertiginous red heels was British model du jour and Big Apple resident Agyness Deyn. Other key fashion players on hand to see new designer Alexander Wang presented with the Fashion Fund award included US Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

The $200,000 cash prize is given to the most promising up-and-coming designer of the past 12 months. This year Alexander impressed judges with his denim-orientated spring/summer 2009 collection, which received rave reviews when it was presented at New York Fashion Week.
