Every year the Council of Fashion Designers of America put on their version of the Oscars: The CFDA Fashion Awards. The awards recognize outstanding contributions to American fashion, with categories such as Womenswear/Menswear Designer of the Year, Acessory Designer of the Year, and Lifetime Achievement Award. Of course, all the elite American fashionistas show up to show off for the Fashion Police (such as designers Donna Karan, Vera Wang, Phillip Lim, and Vogue fashion editor Anna Wintour) and hope to be photographed for Style.com's party section. The looks below include my personal favorites, and some that I just wasn't sure about. Let me know what you think!

Lauren Davis, in Proenza Schouler, with Diego Garcia.
