If you are not lucky enough to attend this year's CFDA Awards, which will be hosted by everyone's favorite silver fox Anderson Cooper, at least you can enjoy the exclusive images shot specifically for the 2011 CFDA Journal.
Photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, the 2011 CFDA Journal features a shirtless Marc Jacobs, pensive Alexander Wang, mirrored Jack and Lazaro, and fierce Lady Gaga. Shot entirely in black and white, the simple photo shoot has a rather serious tone that really brings a sense of reverence to this ceremony.
Considering that these four are nominees and honorees in the 2011 CDFA Awards, I understand why the images are the way they are. Trey Laird designed the 2011 CDFA Journal for the fourth time.
