NEW YORK (AP) - Lady Gaga and Marc Jacobs are sure winners at Monday night's Council of Fashion Designers of America awards, already named this year's style icon and lifetime achievement winners.
Jacobs is up against fellow hipsters Alexander Wang, and Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler in the top womenswear design category. Wang and the Proenza duo are also competing with Reed Krakoff as top accessories designer.
In the running for menswear are Michael Bastian, Patrik Ervell and Simon Spurr.
Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen are expected on the red carpet as nominees for the emerging talent prize in womenswear, challenging Prabal Gurung and Joseph Altuzarra.
Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim and Robert Geller have nods in the up-and-coming menswear designer category, and Alejandro Ingelmo, Eddie Borgo, Pamella Love and Jason Wu in accessories.
The other big competition of the night? Which designer brings the highest-wattage celebrity date to Lincoln Center.
In years past, Gwyneth Paltrow and Blake Lively showed up on the arm of Michael Kors, Eva Mendes and Scarlett Johansson with Francisco Costa, Rihanna with Max Azria, and Victoria Beckham with Jacobs.
Sofia Coppola is slated to give Jacobs his lifetime prize.
