Bravo posterboy Andy Cohen has just been revealed as the host of this year’s CFDA Awards.
“Andy Cohen is a friend of the fashion industry and we are thrilled to have him host the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards,” CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg said in a release.
SNL’s Seth Meyer’s killed as last year’s host (at one point during the ceremony he memorably donned a sheer Comme des Garcons dress and pilgrim shoes à la Marc Jacobs at the Met ball) so Cohen’s got some seriously big buckled shoes to fill.
Still, we think he’s up to the task. We’re pretty sure that most of the fashion industry (and at the very least the Fashionista staff) consume a helluva lot of Bravo. Even if Watch What Happens Live! isn’t your cup of (booze-filled) tea, you can’t deny that it takes great skill to be able to control a Real Housewives reunion special.
The CFDA awards will take place on Monday, June 3rd at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. Style.com will broadcast the awards the following day.
We hope this makes Cohen’s “Mazel of the day.”
