Marc Jacobs, Rodarte's Laura Mulleavy.
The CFDA noms were announced last night, and the fashion world is giddy. Giddy! Marc Jacobs, Narciso Rodriguez, and Rodarte are duking it out for the 2009 Womenswear Designer of the Year award. Italo Zucchelli, Michael Bastian, and Scott Sternberg are up for Menswear Designer. This year's ceremony will be held in Alice Tully Hall on June 15. And the First Lady is being honored with a Board of Directors’ Special Tribute. Does this mean we'll have a Michelle appearance? Pins and needles, people! See the full list of nominees below.
