Study up! The new class of nominees for the Council of Fashion Designers of America 2011 Fashion Awards includes some stand-out celebrity pupils. Among the superlatives bestowed upon fashion’s new guard will be the Icon Award, to be presented to Lady Gaga for her role as a “fashion revolutionary impacting style today.” Also recognized are Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, whose 4-year-old label The Row garnered them a nomination for the Swarovski Award for Womenswear. “We are particularly proud of each designer nominated for a Swarovski Award,” CFDA Vice President Nadja Swarovski said in a release. “They are the perfect example of emerging American design talent and have displayed a keen sense for the future of fashion.” Other award nominees include star-beloved designers like Alexander Wang and Marc Jacobs, and Michelle Obama favorite Jason Wu. Winners will be announced at the annual CFDA gala, taking place June 6 in New York City. —Justine Harman

they look redunkulous! and really need to change what they are wearing, ps.. olsen sisters, you should really try smiling one time or another, it migt make you look a little more attractive.

Regarding the Olsen twins:

Ever since they’ve been about 17 and stalked by the paparrazi (and in many cases mugging for photos to publicize their movies or clothing interests) I noticed that they don’t ever show their teeth when they do smile (or very rarely anyway).

I agree that they would be more attractive giving a genuine, toothy smile!

(BTW – What is the deal with the ‘face-sucking’? Do she think it makes her look thinner?

i absolutely LOVE the olsen twins, esp mary kate. they have a unique, eccentric sense of style & are not afraid to step outside the “norm”. props to them for not being like every other cookie-cutter actress/fashion designer out there.

jamie on

oh & as far as lady gaga goes…she is just plain ridiculous. she wears what she wears soley because she knows that it is attention grabbing. half the sh!t she wears she can’t even MOVE in.
