Eva Mendes, who fronts campaigns for Calvin Klein lingerie and perfume, presented him with the award at a star studded evening at the New York Public Library.
The evening was hosted by Chairwoman of the Council of Fashion Designers America - Diane Von Furstenberg who declared, 'Tonight we're here to celebrate American fashion', to an A-list crowd of celebrities, designers and fashion industry insiders still rocked by yesterday's news of the death of Yves Saint Laurent.
In tribute to the designer many guests wore vintage YSL, including Naomi Campbell. She arrived at the same time as Victoria Beckham, dressed head to toe in Marc Jacobs who was also nominated for Womenswear Designer of the Year.
Tory Burch scooped accessories designer of the Year, while the Rodarte sisters, Kate and Laura Mulleavy won the Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent.
