The Daily is widely known for accurately predicting the winners of the CFDA Awards---but how did we fare this year? Once again, we correctly predicted 4 out of the 6 victors. (In 2008, we guessed 5---pas mal.)  Who tripped us up? The men. Rag & Bone's David Neville and Marcus Wainwright were named menswear designers of the year, and Richard Chai was granted the same honor in the Swarovski category. Congrats, boys, we adore vous---but Daily favorites Michael Bastian and Patrik Ervell received better reviews all year long. (Not to mention sales-floor success.) Perhaps Chai, Neville and Wainwright have the ladies to thank. After all, a bulk of CFDA Awards voters just happens to be females who worship their women's collections. This bodes well for Bastian, who is introducing women's RTW at his Gant show in New York this September. We'll be watching!
