Last night, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) paid tribute to the winners and honorees of the 2009 CFDA Fashion Awards at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center.

Polo Ralph Lauren emerged the winner of the Most Popular American Designer award; online voters decided the winnner.

Honors went to Kate & Laura Mulleavy for Rodarte for Womenswear Designer of the Year, presented by Diane Kruger.

There was a tie for Menswear Designer of the Year, which was presented by Jimmy Fallon: Scott Sternberg for Band of Outsiders and Italo Zucchelli for Calvin Klein Collection.

Jack McCollough & Lazaro Hernandez for Proenza Schouler took home the Accessory Designer of the Year Award–no real surprise there.

As we pointed out during the lead-up to the awards, First Lady Michelle Obama was honored with the Board of Directors’ Special Tribute Award by CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg for her support and commitment to American designers.
