You can't be a Fashion Icon winner without a party to celebrate! Last night, Stephen Gan and Nicola Fomichetti threw their pal Lady Gaga a party after the CFDA Awards at The Top of The Standard. They were joined by Jason Wu, Gerard Butler, Prabal Gurung, Karolina Kurkova, Russell Simmons, Marc Jacobs, Nicole Miller, Thom Browne, Johan Lindberg, and Lady Bunny to witness Gaga join Patti LaBelle for a duet. Not exactly the most expected choice for a collaboration, but hey, it was legendary. That Lady Gaga and Lady Bunny duet will have to come at another date.

Times-itrix Cathy Horyn hit the CFDA Awards in full noir regalia last night—she even accessorized with a Louis Vuitton zippered clutch! But her best accessory was beau Art Ortenberg, who was looking as dashing as the day he graced the cover of The Daily's Valentine's Day issue back in '09. We'll have what he's having! Billy, Patrick—did nobody get a photo of these two last night? Here they are in December 2010, at NYC & Company Foundation's 2010 Leadership Awards Gala. In related breaking Times news, Styles desk cutie Eric Wilson took in the spectacle sitting next to a Patrik Ervell-clad Kirsten Dunst.

Not many bring a plus-one to the CFDA Awards—tix are $500 apiece, people!—but a few of you did bring some arm candy. Most notably? Lifetime Achievement Award winner Marc Jacobs, who took his seat in Alice Tully Hall next to off-again, on-again boyf Lorenzo Martone. Accepting the Swarovski Award for Menswear, Robert Geller appeared to be a little choked up while thanking his "beautiful wife Anna," while earlier, Hal Rubenstein ended his memorable acceptance speech for the Founder's Award (given in honor of Eleanor Lambert) by intoning what makes it all worth it—telling his partner, David Nickle, "Come here, sexy. Give me a hug." You cuties!

Resort 2012: Carolina Herrera

(NEW YORK) Carolina Herrera
"This collection embraces the mood that feels right for today--light in spirit and fabrics, strong in color and never ever too serious," wrote Carolina Herrera in her Resort 2012 notes. True to her word, Mrs. Herrera debuted an airy collection awash in saturated shades of lilac, persimmon, and crimson. There were gowns galore, of course--pleated, ruffled, and draped with rigor--patterned with tiny red mushrooms, abstract floral watercolor, bubbles, or blown out irregular polka dots. A floor-sweeping silver art deco dress was mentioned for The Met while a dramatic party confection swathed in overlapping tulle needed to be on the cover of Vanity Fair, as stated by her team.

This season, the designer took it to another level, riffing on her signatures to "embrace how a woman of today lives." What does that mean exactly? Well, to the keenest observer, what appears to be a black and white eyelet gown is in fact, wide-leg culottes. How about the multi-colored confetti "skirt" paired with a silky tee? Culottes, again (avec pockets). Jostled beside the updated CH classics were a slew of lunching capris, satin cocktail dresses, knit tees, and wool cardis. The result was a collection brimming with retail-ready pieces fit for morning meetings, midnight soirees, and everything in between.

Without Further Ado: Best Dressed at the CFDA Awards

The CFDA Awards is the industry's most legitimate excuse to dress up, but strangely, the 2011 rendition was relatively mild on showmanship—although thanks be to Gaga for keeping things interesting with that spiked thong (did we just write "thong?"). However, Chic's top five are more than meritous of their accolades. Study the evidence in our Gallery.

1. Doutzen Kroes in J.Mendel. This is one you need to see to believe, but the always-radiant Kroes was especially breathtaking in this one-shouldered gown from Gilles' resort collection, which he'll officially show press and buyers next Monday. When she came up to greet the designer, she left three googly-eyed suitors in her wake. "That girl," sighed one. "That girl."

2. Miranda Kerr in Michael Kors. MJ always manages to bring a hot date, but this year, he had Miranda and Ashley Greene—although it was Kerr's body-con black bandage that enjoyed the most traffic-stopping potential. We'll have whatever she's having.

3. Linda Fargo in Jil Sander. "I just felt like wearing pants," Bergdorf Goodman's fashion director shrugged of her neon suit, worn with vintage black and white earrings. Consider this the '11 way to do tuxedo dressing. Refreshing!

4. Karlie Kloss in Jason Wu. "Anything she wears..." said the designer of his muse, and while it's true that Kloss is preternaturally blessed in more ways than one, this crimson silk chiffon slipdress with a full layered skirt was especially fetching.

5. Liya Kebede in Derek Lam. A lot of ladies went minimal—Kerry Washington in Calvin Klein Collection, Leelee Sobieski in a cream suit—but Kebede's toss-on Lam, lined in black, got the effortless look down effortlessly. Where can we order?
