VIDEO: Fashion 2.0 Awards Marry Style, Social Media

Technology awards shows are not known for their style, but the Fashion 2.0 Awards are different. The Style Coalition-backed event honors social-media stars and startups in the fashion space.

Robert Verdi, former host of Fashion Police, MC’d the evening and designer Zac Posen was keynote speaker. “We are at the frontier of a new universe where we’re able to communicate and be voyeurs,” Posen said. “It’s up to all of us in the fashion arena to be responsible for how we create the voice and language and how we work in this new universe.”

PCMag’s Coco Rocha presented the Innovator Award and spoke of her social media presence, which spans 13 million followers across her Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and other accounts. “Social media has certainly changed my career and for that matter every aspect and job within the fashion industry,” Rocha said. “The brands and people in fashion who are thriving today are the ones who are boldly embracing the new and pushing the boundaries of art and commerce in this digital world. This is the essence of Fashion 2.0.”

The two techiest awards of the night were Best Wearable Tech and Best Fashion Startup. The Nike+ FuelBand ran away with the first, beating even the far more fashion-forward Cuff line of smartphone-enabled jewelry. Best Fashion Startup went to Acustom Apparel, a SoHo-based retailer that creates custom clothing for customers after 3D scanning them. The Fashion 2.0 Awards have been prescient in the past. The first year of their existence, Dennis Crowley accepted the Next Big Thing in Social Media Award for Foursquare.

In this installment of Life via Instagram I try a new look, get some air time on TV and do my best to beat the cold!

  4. Did you catch The Model Alliance’s Sara Ziff and myself talking with Katie Couric about protecting young models?

  6. Wearing a Dsquared2 suit and drinking coffee with a straw (to save my lipstick) backstage at Steven And Chris.
  7. Shooting portraits in pure northern light with Michael Avedon.
  8. Hug us, we’re cute. #throwbackthursday

OSCARS via INSTAGRAM - March 1st to 3rd

Saying that I was excited to be involved with the Oscars is an understatement. It was a great night for me, my Zac Posen gowns and my girl Lupita. Who tuned in to watch me talk red carpet fashion on CNN? 

  1. Guess who’s going to the Oscars!?! Now the big question is: Which Zac Posen gown do I wear?! 1, 2 or 3?
  2. Making an unexpected pit stop in Las Vegas on our way to LA. Apparently the winds were so strong we didn’t have enough fuel to make it! #OscarsOrBust
  3. So this was my life for 24 hours. I completed my CNN crash course!
