This is a big year for the CFDA: It's the organization's 50th anniversary year, and from the looks of things, the CFDA's annual awards ceremony will be an exciting one. The nominees include a number of relatively new designers and brands, and the honorees also reflect a shifting landscape: street style bloggers Scott Schuman (a.k.a. The Sartorialist) and Garance Dore are both being honored with awards for their work in media, for example. As an added bonus, the CFDA will be awarding none other than Johnny Depp with the illustrious "Fashion Icon" award. The complete nominees are below, and the awards will be held on June 4 in a ceremony hosted by the fabulous Seth Meyers.
