Pictures from the star-studded fashion event

Fashion's finest were out in force last night (6 June) in New York for this year's Council Of Fashion Designers Of America (CFDA) Awards, which recognise the outstanding contributions made to American fashion by individuals from all areas of the industry.

A vamped-up Lady Gaga (complete with bright green wig) jostled for elbow space on the purple carpet next to movie stars including Kirsten Dunst and Naomi Watts, and actors-turned-designers such as the Olsen twins and Chloe Sevigny.

    The queen of quirkiness chose a teal-coloured wig with a custom-made Thierry Mugler corset, studded thong and her signature sky-high platform boots (not forgetting the pillarbox red talons and lips). Gaga picked up the CFDA fashion icon award, telling the audience, "All of you made me feel like a star before I was."
