In a move that will delight anyone that has longed to attend the annual CFDA Fashion Awards, but hasn't managed to find enough spare change down the back of their sofa to cover the $10,000 ticket, this year you'll be able to watch fashion's starriest ceremony from the comfort of your own home. For the first time in the show's history, the Council of Fashion Designers of America is teaming up with The Harvey Weinstein Co. for a live telecast of the event and the pre-show red carpet, taking place on 6 June at the Hammerstein Ballroom, New York. And while having the Quentin Tarantino producer on board doesn't necessarily mean we'll witness a highly-stylised Samurai bloodbath over the recipient of Accessory Designer of the Year, viewers can expect the usual mix of glitz and glamour that has earned the awards the nickname of Fashion's Oscars. You might be at home, but don't regret not wearing a bedazzled thong.
