The Council of Fashion Designers annual CFDA Awards will be broadcast, in its entirety, for the first time in history on June 5.
Whoop-de-do, right? Well, yes, it really is a big whoop. This is the 50th anniversary of the awards, Johnny Depp is getting the first Fashion Icon award given to a male and Saturday Night Live head writer and Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers will be hosting.
But don’t rush to set your DVRs. The show will air on Style.com, one day after the June 4 event at Lincoln Center. Until this year, the show was closed to TV cameras and the news was reported afterwards with only short video clips available online.
